Hi,

when I copy / move tasks to calendar the reccurence information is lost!

I've got many many tasks and restoring manually recurrence to each one is almost impossible!

It's very important to me to keep reccurence. i've tried move / copy / drag and drop / export - import (all formats) and it is always the same - reccurence is lost.

Is there any way to keep information about reccurence during copy from tasks to calendar?

Plz help

Thx

Did you switch to a list view, copy the item then paste it on the folder you're moving it to? (Use Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V to copy and paste if the commands aren't on the right click menu)

Right click drag should work too, as should open the folder and paste. But, especially in older versions of outlook, you want to use a list view as copying from the calendar views will often only select the event. You can check to see if right-clikc drag offers to copy the entire series - it does in some versions.
