I'm trying to enter in a reminder for payday. I'm paid on the 15th of each month. However, if the 15th falls on a Saturday or Sunday, I'm paid on Friday. I have no problem entering a recurring event on the 15th. It's not having it fall on a weekend that I can't figure out.

Someone asked a similar question here but that is always setting a reminder on the 14, so that some months it would be early. It seems this person was trying to make Friday events fall on a Thursday and Sunday events fall on a Monday. I want anything on Saturday or Sunday to fall on Friday.

I'm hoping to make an .ics event that I would import into my calendar. This solution worked for me to enter the event for the last day of the month but I can't figure out how to edit it to work on the 15th. I was trying to edit BYSETPOS and it didn't work.

  • Hi Beth, happy to reopen this for you with your current changes. The main reason it was marked as a duplicate was that the answer is likely the same as the other question, that it's not possible at this time.

You can create a .ics with the following code to set up a recurring event that occurs on the 15th of the month except when the 15th falls on a weekend. If both the 14th and the 15th fall on a weekend, the event will occur on the 13th.
