Quarterly outlook events

Hello everyone! 

 

I was wondering how to create quarterly recurring events in outlook? I have a form that is filled out and then it creates an event on the outlook calendar. Obviously, weekly, monthly, and yearly recurrences were no problem in the create event action, but does anyone know how to do quarterly? I'm totally lost!

Hi,

 

So for quarterly events you can have a flow create calendar events every 3 months depending on the chosen date in the form. Using the expression: 

 

addToTime([Date], [number], '[units]', '[format]')

 

You can do:

 

addtotime([Date],3,'Month',[Format])

 

Which will give you a date 3 months in advance and you can do the same thing for 6, 9, and 12 months.

 

Hope this helps!

There doesn't seem to be a way to set "custom" recurrence patterns using the "Create an event (V4)" action. Personally, recurring events in Outlook (and SharePoint) calendars have been a thorn in my side for ages. There are just too many hidden "gotchas" involved. I would suggest maybe trying what @eyau suggests and just create individual events spaced three months apart.
