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:
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:
To proceed, click ‘Yes’.
Your recurring appointment is now created:
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.
TSR will then ask if you would like to continue. Click ’Yes’.
Add the TSR info and save.
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.
