I'm trying to set up a recurring calendar appointment in Outlook 2003, but with a twist. Here is the scenario. Set up a rotating Saturday Work Schedule for 5 people where the schedule lays out like this:

George, Joel, GAIL, George, Joel, JOAN, George, Joel, LINDA,

George, Joel, GAIL, George, Joel, JOAN, George, Joel, LINDA,

George, Joel, GAIL, George, Joel, JOAN, George, Joel, LINDA, etc.

It dawned upon me on my drive home. It was simple. Set up recurring appointments in 3 week intervals beginning on date 1 for George and date 2 for Joel; set up recurring appointments in 9 week intervals geginning on date 3 for Gail, date 4 for Joan and date 5 for Linda. That produces a rotation schedule of:

George, Joel, Gail

George, Joel, Joan

George, Joel, Linda

George, Joel, Gail

George, Joel, Joan

George, Joel, Linda,

etc...
