Trying to figure out the best way to handle repeating events. What to know what others have done.


I have a single table of events at present and run a script that will create the next booking at the correct interval once i mark the previous one as completed.

But doesn't allow me to plan thing much into the future as weekly events only have 1 occurrence in the calendar over month instead of the 4/5.


Wanting to figure out a way that creates events 2-3 months in advanced, and then daily checks and creates the next schedule event as it is required. How can i do this?


Second issue is if i adjust the bookings eg move to a different day, that it adjust all the future bookings as well. Thinking to delete the future bookings and recreate with the changes, likewise if i change the interval. Is there a better way?


If anyone has a sample or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I am aware i could just sync to google or purchase but am still learning filemaker and would rather have some code i can pull apart and learn from. as i have done with everything else so far.
