    Hello Telerik Community,

    The project that I am working on has following requirement and I need a suggestion on the best way to utilize Telerik controls like RecurrenceEditor or any other Telerik classes to achieve this functionality.

    There are recurring batch of tasks (appointments) called turnarounds. The end user treats them as a single group of tasks at the time of creation. Each task happens in one 12 hours shift. The creation process should create individual tasks within a turnaround with proper recurrence rule.

    I can easily calculate start and end date of individual tasks but I need advice on keeping recurrence incremented for a given duration.

    Is there any option in  RecurrenceEditor or any other Telerik control which give me a recurrence rule as if it was shifted by a given duration. e.g. for a weekly recurring task, I add a day and it give me a recurring  rule happening for Tuesday?

    From what I understood, you want some way to get all instances of a recurring appointment, based on the recurrence rule string. If your recurrence string is in the iCal format, you can use the RecurrenceRule class that the Scheduler control introduces, and its TryParse method. The following article shows an example of such a functionality:

    Furthermore you can see how you can work with the RecurrenceEditor control outside of RadScheduler in the Recurrence Editor section of the RadScheduler online documentation:

    I this is not what you were looking for, please elaborate on your requirements.
