Hi there,

I'm using Jevents2.0 and I need to set up an event that will take place on the last Sunday of each month. How can I set the event to repeat on the last Sunday of every month?

I have tried setting to repeat by day S then set to week 4 and week 5 but then I have 2 repeats in some months.

Ok well you will need to create two repeats.

The firstly, monthly on the repeats.

Then select the first S, un-select all weeks except week 5 and select count back from end of month.

If you have 2 repeats within a month, rather than creating a new event... the easiest way would be to find out how many extra events you will need, for say in a year an event occurs twice in 3 months then you need 3 extra events. So defined the monthly repeat count to 15.

So that will cover 15 months, but for this scenario we only want 12 months, so view the events in the event manager and click the round star in the repeats column.

Go to the last three and edit them to the dates which you want them in.

Regards

Tony this will count back 5 weeks from the end of the week ;) For the last sunday you select 'count back' along with week 1.

There are examples of complex repeating patterns like this here http://www.jevents.net/en/jevents-15-to ... umentation and in particular how to get the last saturday in the month http://www.jevents.net/en/jevents-15-to ... -the-month

Hi guys, thanks for the quick replies. I'll have a good look into this before I set it up, at the moment I have set it to only show in the week 5s.
