After beating my head against a wall,  I have found a documentation issue with the new scheduler.

Without knowing what the RecurrenceRule field was for, I was populating this with display information for the user to view (through a template).
The Scheduler would render properly, however no "events" would display. There is no documentation for the ISchedulerEvent interface, only a snippet on the "Getting Started" page, which doesn't describe what each field does, or expects.

I created a new solution, and added the scheduler, created an event and found that the RecurrenceRule is not a user definable field, and has query-like syntax:

RecurrenceRule:FREQ=MONTHLY;BYMONTHDAY=30

Although the product is still in beta, it still needs to be documented, also will this ever be settable/ definable by the user?

also- why not throw an error if the field is not populated correctly/ does not compile? Rather than not showing the events altogether.

Hi Erik,

 
Thank you for your feedback. 

We will include such article about the "ISchedulerEvent" in our documentation with more information about each field. Your findings that "RecurrenceRule" is not a user definable field are correct.

Also we will consider validating this field and throwing an exception. 

Kind Regards,
