    Last night I tried to setup a reoccurring appointment that happens once a year on the first Saturday in May. I also have others that happen similar where it is once a year on a particular weekday.

    The only option I find for yearly reoccurrence is a specific date (i.e May 5th) not for the First Saturday in May.

    Anyone know if this can be done?

    I have that option on my calendar. Try logging in to Google Calendar online and seeing if that option is there.

    Thanks for the suggestion but I tried that. The only option for yearly on my phone or on online Google calendar is for a specific date like May 5th.

    If I select Weekly or Monthly I can select Sat, Sun, etc. but not yearly.

    What about the anniversary setting?

    Have you tried that?
    Oh, nevermind, I read and understand what you mean now.
    Yearly for the first certain day of the week in a specific month...

    I've set up things that happen every fourth week but never tried every 12th month. Too lazy to open the browser right now.

    Yeah, I think it can't be done easily in google calendar, but if you ar doing an anual thing I would think you could do 10 years out in 5min or less just by putting in the individual events :pcguru:

    It looks to me like you can set a monthly appointment to occur every 12 months. That should do the trick.

    Now I have to figure out how to schedule twice in three weeks. 10 days then 11 days. Repeating.

    Thanks, that did it. It never dawned on me to do it that way.
