Proton Calendar - more detailed settings for Frequency
On Frequency in Proton Calendar item there is just every week/month/year. I have some typical situation, that I need action each 4 weeks (which isn't 1 month).
So it would be nice to add more settings for this Frequency something like:
- each: number
A. The one feature I need but have never found on any consumer calendar is -
A.1. the ability to schedule the same event information at irregular dates and times. -
B. There are many, many such events in peoples lives. -
B.1. I envision that such could be accomplished by a calendar database component that could be accessed for copy and paste on a particular date with only the need to enter the time component for the new event. -
C. While some might say that B.1. could be accomplished by just updating an event with a new date and time -
C.1 they overlook the fact that in doing so, it deletes the altered event and the history thereof. - C.1.a. History is very valuable information.
Yeah, I need stuff on M/W/F and Tues/Thurs, and that has to be done manually at the moment. Would like to see a more robust repeat feature.
This is a must-have for shift-workers. Once this feature is implemented (and a mobile app), I'll switch over immediately.

Yes, needs a custom repeat feature.
Yes, custom frequency is needed. I have events that recur every two weeks. The Apple calendar has this feature, and I couldn't change over without it.
Need more options for frequency. Very nice about being able to set appointments in different time zones and the calendar converts to local time.
Absolutely agree. Have many snoozed emails to myself being used as reminders for unusual time frames. For example, some sim cards need a data ad-on bought every 28 days. Google calendar may support this time frame type of reminder but we are all here to get away from that. Should be simple to add a "completely" customizable frequency to the calendar reminders even if it is in periods of days. Hope you will consider this. So We can completely cut out google.
Yes. This is a must-have. The lacking frequency options is stopping me from switching. I would love to delete google calendar but there's no real alternative.
- I would need repeating events wich are on a different time. So i should be able to edit the time of one repeating event without changing the other events in that frequency. Usecase: i work in shifts, wich includes 'reserves' (which are frequent, but are later specified on a time)
- End repeating events after n events or after a certain date.
- deleting a repeating event should ask if i would wan't to delete the next events or just this one
- things like 'every last friday of the month' is very usefull (Outlook has this)
This is the feature I came here to request. I have events that occur every two weeks that can't be accommodated by current choices.

The calendar looks great so far. Keep up the good work. The only feature holding me back from migrating my Google calendar over is repeating an event every two weeks.
Yes, having the ability to customize the frequency an event is repeated is important. I need to be able to add clients to the calendar and many of them repeat every other week or every three weeks. Also, having the option to decide what date the event stops is important.
Thank you so much for creating this encrypted calendar! I am super excited it is up and running :)
UP - Google calendar has this very useful option.
Need Calendar Frequency step option.
Like for every 2 weeks, every 3 weeks. or days.
Keep up the great work.
