    I am trying to enter The Burning Man event into my Outlook Calendar. The event is a week long ending on Labor Day (first Monday in September). Any ideas on how to enter this event?

    Welcome to the Lounge!

    You can set a start date and date of any day and time you need. There should not be an issue with a start date one week earlier than the end date. If that proves to be an issue you can enter a recurring event starting one week before the end with an occurence every day for a week.

    I think the problem is that the event ends on the first Monday of September. When doing recurring dates how do you set an end date as the recurrence and how do you make it a date that is not static?

    How would it work to setup the recurrance as yearly, set it for 7 days and set for the LAST MONDAY IN AUGUST?

    Create it as an all day event of 8 days duration with a recurrence of Yearly on the last Monday in August. End date or no end date is up to you.

    Did you ride the purple bus?

    EDIT: MercyH beat me to it. Except I would set it for eight days to catch Labor day.
