Creating a Recurring Appointment Block
- Navigate to the Appointments page, and either select the “+Create a Block” button or click and drag directly on the calendar to create a block.
- Fill out the details of the block, and use the “Occurs” option to convert the Appointment Block to Recurring. All appointment blocks are defaulted to appear one time, but you may also select weekly to make the block repeat on a weekly basis.
- Input an "End Date" to set the calendar date for when the Recurring Appointment Block will end. For example, if you select "May 15, 2023," the Recurring Appointment Block will repeat until May 15, 2023. All dates after May 15th will not have the recurring block.
A common End Date is the last day of each semester or term.
