Importing recurring data into calendar list - columns not exposed

  Asked By: Domonique    Date: Dec 25    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 3889

We have a team calendar that an end user will update periodically by copying/pasting data from a spreadsheet that is sourced from an external system (haven't gotten to the point of automated integration yet) into a datasheet view. It works fine, but they are now wanting to import data that uses the recurring feature. If you click Recurrence in the UI, it exposes several additional fields where you can select attributes of the recurring entry (day of the week, duration, etc.). Those fields are not available as columns in a view. So I have no idea how to import them from a spreasheet as a recurring entry. Any advice?

I think you need to go with custom code. Or may be a temporary list  with event receiver.
The event receiver is the one which will update  the calendar, so you don't update directly calendar  using spreadsheet.
