Just talking with a Drupal 8 user that is frustrated by the lack of options for managing recurring events on a calendar. Is Backdrop able to handle recurring events yet? Things like the ability to set and update a weekly event or an event that happens on the first Monday of every month.
The goal is the ability to edit a single entity that will effect multiple recurring events.
Date Repeat was split off when date went in core but is incomplete and needs some love.
There is now a module / view using Fullcalendar and repeat-date that will do the trick. Fullcalendar Views NG https://github.com/backdrop-contrib/fullcalendar_views
