Ability for the public to add recurring events via front end submission

Ability for the public to add events via front end submission as a repeating/recurring event - currently, people can only post a single event (either as a single day, or a single events that spans several days) - but not an event that say occurs every Monday, or the fourth Thursday of the month.

    Are you referring to front end submission?

    Yes, this is the ability for the public to add events via front end submission as a repeating/recurring event - currently, people can only post a single event (either as a single day, or a single events that spans several days) - but not an event that say occurs every Monday, or the fourth Thursday of the month.  

    (Can you please edit the title to reflect this)

    No brainer, especially for a premium plugin! I assumed that the frontend submission would include the same details that are available on the backend. This is a HUGE missing feature of this plugin.

    Yes, Let's do this!

    Yes please, this is essential to allow our clientele the feature set we promise. Having to tell them to post only the next upcoming date, and then email us the recurrence pattern is very clunky...

    Yes please! This feature would be helpful for our admin. When reviewing submitted events we would not have to manually input repeating events.

    Why have you guys not added this feature yet? 

    March 9 admin does not seem to understand what is needed?

    This makes the calendar very inefficient from an admin pov.

    clients often have repeating events in one form or another

    your calendar should have the same utility as a google calendar

    please?

    I still do not see this live on my site. Is this for hosted calendars only?

    This will come soon on the new web application we've been building, together with lots of improvements and new features!

    So is this planned for the WP plugin or just for hosted calendars?

    Not yet planned for WP nor hosted plans. But only for the new web application. More details to on how to sign-up for the new web application will be coming soon!

    Can I get a refund of my purchase of the front end submission WP plugin? It is ridiculous that you're holding these features hostage in a hosted solution after I've paid for a flawed product.

    Hey Bryan, building them on our API and releasing them first on the new application is the first plan in bringing these as new scalable features on WP as well.

    Can you please provide more info to info@time.ly about the flaws you found in our product? Thank you!

    Could really use this on the Wordpress plugin. We bought the Front End submission add-on, but it's definitely sub-optimal without the ability to submit recurring events.
