To enter the date / time portion of a recurring meeting:

  1. Click Create a Recurring Meeting tab

  2. Enter the date of the first meeting under Starting Date

    1. This initial date is very important because it determines the day of the week or date that is referenced in the Repeats section

      1. Leave as Every to have the meeting repeat every week on the day specified

    2. The 2nd option has two choices to make

      1. Click the Every drop-down to reveal additional options of Every 2nd through Every 6th month

        1. Leave as Every to have the meeting repeat every month on the specified date

        2. Select Every 2nd to have the meeting repeat every 2nd month, etc.

        3. Every 3rd month would be the appropriate selection for quarterly meetings

      2. Click the 15th (or whatever date is shown) to reveal another option to repeat based on the day's pattern, such as the third Wednesday

        1. Leave the 15th (or similar date) to repeat on the same date each month

        2. Select the third Wednesday (or similar pattern) to repeat each month based on that pattern - this is the most likely option for quarterly meetings

    3. Select the last option to have the meeting occur once a year on the same date

      1. If one of the recurring dates falls on a weekend, there is the ability to update that one meeting to a different date after publishing (please refer to Related Articles for more information on editing a meeting)
