I want to choose a specific weekday, say the first Monday of every month and have it repeat. How can I do that?


iCloud Calendar

    If you have a Mac that is syncing with your iCloud calendar you can set this up on your calendar on your Mac.  If you want to do this on an iOS device, you would need to use an app that supports more complex recurrences like this, such as Week Calendar.

    I did that, but for some reason iCal isn't syncing with my iCloud. I can't figure out why, but iCal did sync with my iPad iCal.

    You mean that the recurring event didn't sync to icloud.com but did sync with your iPad using iCloud?

    iCloud isn't syncing with my iCal on either my Mac, nor my iPad, but it does on my iPhone. Weird.

    On your Mac, make sure you are running OS X 10.7.2 or later, you are signed into your iCloud account in System Preferences>iCloud, and that you have checked Calendars & Reminders.

     

    On your iPhone, make sure you have turned Calendars to On in Settings>iCloud, and that you have selected your iCloud calendar as your default in Settings>Mail,Contacts,Calendars>Default Calendar.  If not, change this setting then enter a new event on your iPhone calendar and see if it appears on icloud.com now.  If your settings are correct and it still won't sync, add any events on your phone that are not on icloud.com to your iCloud calendar so the calendar on icloud.com is up to date.  Then go to Settings>iCloud, turn Calendars to Off, choose Delete from My iPhone when prompted, then after a minute or so, turn Calendars back to On to sync back your iCloud calendar to your phone.  Then enter a new event on your phone and see if it appears on icloud.com now.

    I'm running 10.7.5. Okay, so I checked "System Preferences>iCloud" and "Calendars" is checked off. It still doesn't sync to my iCloud, but entries done in iCal do sync to my iPhone and my iPad, but not to my iCloud calendar when I open it in the Safari webpage. My question is why don't the entries in iCal appear on my iCloud calendar that I access via Safari? They should be there, right?

  • randers4 Level 9 (62,715 points)

    Yes they should.  I don't see how your events would sync to your devices via iCloud, yet not appear in your calendar on icloud.com unless it was a browser issue.  I don't know if it will do any good, but you might try clearing the Safari cache as explained here: http://support.apple.com/kb/ts4050.

    You might also want to make sure the calendar you are trying to view on icloud.com is listed on the calendars list under iCloud on the left side of the calendar, and is checked so it can be viewed.

    Yep. got ALL of them checked except for Entourage.

    How all this started is when I downloaded the "American Holiday's" file and added it to my iCal on my Mac. I noticed that it updated my iPad, iPhone, but not my iCloud calendar on Safari. I have every device set to sync with iCloud.

    Oh, if that's the only calendar that isn't appearing, that's normal.  iCloud will only push subscribed calendars to your other devices; it won't add the subscribed calendar to icloud.com.
