Annually recurring transactions

Asked by David Piper on 2010-12-31

I need to set up transactions that recur annually. This is not an option offered, though I guess it might be available through the "geeky" option - but this is not obvious! Any instructions or guidance gratefully received.

Yearly recurrence is missing at the moment. Yes, you can set it up using GEEKY option. Foe example: FREQ=YEARLY;BYMONTH=1;BYMONTHDAY=11 - every jan 11th of every year. Tap on 'Evaluate dates' to see the dates selected by the pattern.

You can check RRULE spec for more complicated conditions: http://google-rfc-2445.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/rfc2445.html#4.3.10

Many thanks for the help and guidance. Most packages of this type that I have used in the past support annual rules through the user interface - perhaps this functionality could be added in a future release.

Full and useful answer. Thanks.

BTW is there a link to the google rfc from the website or in the package itself?

I agree this option shouldn't be GEEKY.

How about bi-weekly recurrence?
I want to schedule mortgage transactions which are bi-weekly. I don't see such option in RRULE spec.
