In the top right corner there is a link to create a recurring appointment. A click on it will show you the following window.

Fig.: Create calendar appointment series

To create a recurring appointment first type the start and end time of the appointment. The green cross at the end of the line opens a new line. Here you can type another appointment on the same day. In the next paragraph you click on the day of the week the appointment will be. In the last paragraph you finally set the start and end date of the recurring appointment. Press “save” to create the recurring appointment.
For example, if you have entered start 8 o’clock, end 10 o’clock and duration 30 min, 4 appointments are created for each selected day.

The grey area at the bottom of the window isn’t used for a recurring appointment and is therefore deactivated.
