How do I set up recurring events?

The Broadcaster Dashboard makes it easy to set up multiple, recurring events. For example, you could set up a worship service every Sunday or a town hall meeting every Wednesday. 

 

Please note that the "clone" feature is no longer part of the new event wizard, but is still available if you go to any already-scheduled broadcast and click Edit.

 

Follow these quick steps to schedule a new recurring event.

1. Click into Schedule an Event

2. Enter a the event Name, Description, and other settings as you normally would.

3. Consider using the special token "[date]" if you would like that automatically added to the name and/or description.  For example, you could type the name as "Sunday morning service on [date]".  Then, on each occurrence, that "[date]" token will be dynamically replaced by the properly formatted date for that instance.

4. On the scheduling section, select the date and time you would like the event to start.

5. Then select the checkbox named "Show Recurring Event Options"

6. Select when you would like the recurrence to end. This could be after a certain number of events (up to 100) or by a certain date.

7. Select the recurrence interval. This could be either "Daily", "Weekly", or "Monthly".  Daily events will be scheduled for every single day until the end, at the same time of day as the original event.  Weekly events will be scheduled on the same day of week as the original event.  Monthly events will be scheduled on the same day of month (as long as there are that many days in the month; otherwise it will be scheduled for the last day of the month).

8. Finish filling out the rest of the fields and click "Schedule This Event".

9. Review the new list of events that have been added to your dashboard.  You can individually edit or delete any instance as necessary.

 

Happy broadcasting!
