Steps for creating a recurring event
A one-time event will only take place a single time and is unique from what would be otherwise known as a recurring event. An example of a one-time event would be a concert or a traveling art exhibit that is happening once.
In contrast, an example of a recurring event would be an event that happens regularly, annually, or on a designated day of the week. For example, a theater production that is shown twice a day for the next week. If you know you are going to repeat an event more than once, be sure to follow the instructions provided for creating a recurring event.
