Need an enhancement to be able to specify an even to follow an event or a set
period (day, week, month) following a specified day.
For instance I have an event that occurs on the 3rd Tuesday of every month. It
is always followed by an event on the following Thursday. The event on Thursday
cannot have its recurrence properly set because the Thursday following the 3rd
Tuesday may be the 3rd Thursday or it may be the 4th Thursday. so I need to be
able to set a recurrence of 2 days following the 3rd Tuesday.
Steps to Reproduce:
Create an event to occur on the 3rd Tuesday. Try to create an event that always follows the 3rd Tuesday by 2 days.
Create an event on the 3rd Tuesday. Create an event that occurs on the 3rd Thursday. Some times the 3rd Thursday follows the 3rd Tuesday and sometime it is the 4th Thursday that follows the 3rd Tuesday depending on what day of the week the month started.
This probably isn't going to be implemented. It's complicated.. unless we could express that request in terms of the existing recurrency rules.
How about something like 3rd Tuesday + 2 days or similar? That would be in terms of the existing recurrency rule wouldn't it?
Problem is writing that to ical, and making sure other applications will understand it. So we need to use existing rules.
OK. There are a couple of use cases I use for such events. One is the expiration of stock options which occurs on the Saturday following the third Friday. That is not always the third Saturday.
I understand the compatibility issues. I just think it might be useful.
It looks like ical can support this:
The first Saturday that follows the first Sunday of the month,
==> (1997 9:00 AM EDT)September 13;October 11
(1997 9:00 AM EST)November 8;December 13
(1998 9:00 AM EST)January 10;February 7;March 7
(1998 9:00 AM EDT)April 11;May 9;June 13...
It would be great to be able to set recurring dates like this in korganizer.
