It is not obvious how to do this, you have to use Google “magic”.
Let us say we want to hold a meeting on the last Friday of each month. Using the normal repeating options does not allow for this and will only offer the “fourth Friday each month”, thus missing out the several occasions in the year when there is a fifth Friday in the month
To achieve our goal do as follows:
- Open Google Calendar
- Go to the first date on which you want the event to start (e.g. if setting up for the year, 27th January 2017)
- Click on the day to create a new event
- In the Pop up, type as follows:My Event,last Friday of every month,All Day
- Click OK
Check your new repeating event
If you want to set specific times, replace “All Day” with e.g. “11:00-12:00”
Of course it doesn’t have to be a Friday, you can use this for any day of the week, or for any position, so replace last with first,second, third, fourth etc.
