I was trying to to a quick add of a repeating event. After a bunch of trial and error, SUCCESS!!
I think the toughest thing to figure out was that the event will not repeat if you do the quick add and do create event without first clicking edit event details.
In other words if you want the event to repeat … you must click edit event details.
Which is to say even if you enter the syntax exactly right the event will not repeat! Am I carzy?
