The best advice, and really the only advice, that I can give you is to study the Lotus Script code in the mail template, and see exactly what it does when a user changes one entry in a repeating appointment.Lotus has not documented it in any other way, but the template code is all open source and it is the ultimate authority.If the chair advances the first and second instance by an hour, the single response document for all five instances is now split into two response documents: one for the first and the second instance and another for the remaining instances.
For example, if you set a repeating appointment to occur on Mondays for 20 weeks, there is no way to edit this entry and change the repeat to 25 weeks. Click the Repeat action button and set the repeating rule to weekly for a month (this is an example, it doesn't matter what the repeat rule is). NOTE: Repeating Meetings have different options available to the Chairperson, therefore Repeating Meetings are not affected by this issue.
Using the same example, there is no method of changing the appointment to occur once a month versus once a week. Only Repeating Appointments, All Day Events, Reminders, and Anniversaries are affected.
And by teaching users how to take advantage of this feature, you'll give them one more tool to help manage their daily activities.
Let's explore the basics of accessing the Calendar and creating appointments.
I deal with many non-Lotus Notes mail personnel, so I stick with Appointment entries.
