Office 365 - (Outlook 2016) Creating a Reccuring Event

How to create a reccuring event/appointment in Office 365 (Outlook 2016).

  1. In Office 365 Calendar, click New:


  2. Under Repeat click on the drop down box, if none of the options satisfy the requirements for this repeating event, click Other


    You can then define the repeat pattern in the panel that pops up


    Once you are happy with the pattern, click Save.

  3. You will then need to define a start and end date of the repetition, the option to do so will appear once a repeat pattern has been set:


  4. Be sure to complete all the other fields in the appointment before clicking Save:


  5. The event will now be entered in your calendar on a recurring basis, identified by a repeat symbol in the bottom right-hand corner of the appointment


Deleting a Recurring Appointment

Sometimes you may no longer want the appointment to be recurring, or you may want to delete only one occurrence of the appointment.

To do this, locate the meeting in your calendar and right-click it and select Delete.

A message will appear asking if you want to delete only this occurrence or the series. There is a Delete Occurrence and a Delete Series button for you to choose. If you decide to choose Delete Occurrence it will delete just the occurrence that you have clicked on.
