When programming events including Playout, Playlist, Switch, Stream, Input, Record, Overlay, Slide, Ad Trigger, there is a Recurring? checkbox option to repeat that event at regular intervals. When the Recurring? option is selected, you can click the Add Recurrence link to add one more more Recurrence Rules that define the repeating pattern. Multiple Recurrence Rules can be chained together for complex patterns. To remove a Recurrence Rule, click the red remove circle in the upper right. There is a one-year limit on recurring events. Each Recurrence Rule supports the following fields.
- Start Date – Use a Calendar icon to select the first day for the recurring event.
- End – Select End On and use a Calendar icon to select the last day for the recurring event. Or Select End After and enter a specific number of occurrences.
- Type – Select Daily, Weekly, or Monthly. Weekly will present Day of the Week options to pick specific days, and Monthly will additionally present Week of the Month options to pick specific weeks.
- Time – Enter the recurring event start time in HH:MM:SS format using 24-hour time. For example, 1:00 PM is 13:00:00.
- Repeat Every – Select from the pull down to define the repeating pattern based on the Type selected.

Edit a Recurring Event
Modifying a recurring event will bring up a prompt asking if the user wants to change all events in the recurrence, or just the one event.
If a single event is changed without updating the entire recurrence, the event will be removed from the recurrence schedule excluding it from further changes to that recurrence.
