I want to import a recurring date in Google calendar.

FREQ=YEARLY;BYDAY=3SU;BYMONTH=7 is the third Sunday in July

But I want Saturday before the third Sunday of July. And also the Sunday, Monday and Tuesday after the found Saturday.

Is there a solution?

  • I'm afraid Google Calendar isn't that sophisticated. – ale May 8 '13 at 23:47
  • That said, this answer shows how you might use the iCalendar spec to put in some rather exotic repeating patterns. – ale May 9 '13 at 12:28

After a lot of searching and trying I found a solution:

BEGIN:VCALENDAR
BEGIN:VEVENT
DTSTART:20130720
DTEND:20130723
RRULE:FREQ=YEARLY;BYMONTH=7;BYDAY=SA;BYMONTHDAY=14,15,16,17,18,19,20
SUMMARY:My event
END:VEVENT
END:VCALENDAR
  • If you'd made your new variant a question, I'd have added an answer, albeit very late. In short though, you can use negative values in BYMONTHDAY to count back from the end of the month. – mc0e Feb 3 '16 at 12:13
