Calculate a Recurring event for a list item RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a list to keep track of items. One of the fields tells us that an event needs to occur on the object on every 3rd Thursday for example. I need to come up with a way to have a field calculate the next date of that event and to change when the date is in the past to the next date of the occurrence.

  • Hi

    You can use a powershell scheduled script which will fill that column

  • Hi Liam,

    From your description, your requirement is that: an event will occur at specific time, then loop / repeat periodically, and a field will be calculated automatically.

    Per my test, you can create 2 SharePoint Designer workflows to make a looping workflow that will repeat periodically.

    There are 2 custom column in my list: occur time (Date and Time) and y/n (Yes/No, default value is No).

    In workflow settings, set the 1<sup>st</sup> workflow start manually and when an item changed.

    In the 2<sup>nd</sup> workflow, set it start when item changed.

    Best regards,

    Aaren liu
