Repeating events on calendar

I maintain our bar's calendar for shows and events and there are several features that are absolutely maddening. Many of our events are weekly, but in order to put each individual event up you must: duplicate the event, delete (copy) which has been added to the title, and then at times you have go in and manually adjust the individual event webpage because it just keeps adding digits to the html every time you duplicate.

All of this means that it takes probably an hour or two each month rather than just setting the calendar for the year in one sitting.

SOOOOO Frustrating not to be able to put the repeating weekly schedule on the calendar without duplicating EACH item and then editing it for the next week.  Come on folks.

I'm having a similar problem. We have a several weekly free events that repeat. Like Monday 1 to 4 drawing. I'd like to to how up every Monday without having to manually add it to every week. Is there a way to do that?

We've been asking for recurring events for over seven years but, because of the way Events Collections were built, it is technically very difficult to achieve. Squarespace's compromise was to add the ability to duplicate events. This is far from ideal but it is the best solution available.

Can you say more about duplicating? I can see the "duplicate page," obviously, and trying to debug it. For recurring events, is it best to set them for a day early? 

Also, when multiple events appear, no thumbnails appear and even trying to make the most important event featured does not make the thumbnail appear. At a loss and any help appreciated.

I've been frustrated by not being able to do recurring events in SquareSpace for a few years now. I finally decided to give up on the SquareSpace events calendar tool and instead embed a calendar from another website. I ended up embedding our business' Google Calendar which doesn't create the most elegant solution, but it is free. There are other sites like Tockify, CalendarWiz, Time.ly, Loxi.io, etc. that have free and paid plans for more elegant solutions.

I'm not really sure what to tell my client at this point. I convinced her to go with Squarespace, having no idea she would need to upload the recurring events manually each time...Does anyone recommend a third party site that can be embedded instead?

Would also love a bulk import feature for events.  I have mentioned this before but not sure if thats on the feature roadmap anytime soon.  Entering each manually is absolutely painful

I haven't done this but could you use Eventbrite's recurring feature and embed it into the website?
