Recurring Appointments and TSR

When creating a recurring appointment in Outlook, what Outlook actually does is that it creates a single appointment. This is the way Outlook works. So if you added TSR information to such an appointment it would only be registered as a single appointment, which would give the wrong picture of how you spent your time.

Fortunately, TSR has a solution for this.
When making an appointment with TSR information on it, and making it recurring, TSR will split the appointment up into individual appointments, which you will then handle individually as well. In this way you can also make adjustments, editing, etc. of the individual appointments.

Please note that currently recurring appointments handling is only supported in the regular TSR Outlook User Agent. If you use TSR OUA Light, you should not use TSR with recurring appointments, but instead create a separate TSR entry.

Add TSR info to a recurring appointment series

To create a recurring appointment with TSR info, do the following:

Create an appointment with TSR info on it, as you normally would:

CreateRecurring Appointment

Then click ‘Recurrence’, and set the recurrence settings that you wish:


Then click OK.

Then click ‘Save and Close’ on the appointment. It will then present you with this information:

Skærmbillede 2014-03-13 kl. 09.35.11

To proceed, click ‘Yes’.

Your recurring appointment is now created:

Skærmbillede 2014-03-13 kl. 09.36.30

To make any changes, you can edit the individual appointments.

Voila! That’s it.


Add TSR info to a single appointment out of a recurring series

First open the appointment that you would like to add TSR info to, and select ’Just this one’.

Then click the TSR icon.

Skærmbillede 2015-09-10 kl. 15.34.54

TSR will then ask if you would like to continue. Click ’Yes’.

Skærmbillede 2015-09-10 kl. 15.35.14

Add the TSR info and save.

Skærmbillede 2015-09-10 kl. 15.36.00

TSR info will now have been added to the appointment, which is now no longer part of the recurring series, but acts as an individual appointment.
