Hour fields include AM - PM parameters

 

 

 

2. RECURRING AND REPEAT EVENTS

You can make an event repeat over a period of time like daily, weekly or every year. Repeating events saves you the time it would take to create multiple separate events and let’s you change all events in the series at once.

If you choose to repeat an event, more options will appear such as repeating the event over a period time, either in days, weeks or years. These new options will allow you to set the end of the repetitions, by setting an exact end date o a definite number of repetitions, for examples the event to ve repeated twice.

Chronosly FEATURES Advanced Recurrent / Repeat events settings

 

 

chronosly-warning-logo-lqNote: Chronosly does not allow certain repetitions to be set. If the number of days with events is over a week or a month, the system does not allow the event to be published. E.g. if you create 8-days events, these can not be repeated weekly. 32-days events can not be set with weekly or monthly repetition.

It is possible to set 3-days events with daily repetitions. In this case the event would be repeated every 2 days.

 

ENHANCE YOUR RECURRENT EVENTS

It’s very easy to use. You simply create seasons within each event and then you will be able to create complex repeating combinations within that same event.

Also, Recurring events addon allow you to MANAGE MULTIPLE REPEATS of the same event, on the same day and even at the same hour. This is quite useful for clients who manage theater performances, classes etc…
