I am trying to use org-mode for scheduling tasks with a time with no avail. Every time I set it the task is not repeated:

On my task I use C-c C-d and then type in 2015-09-15 9:00AM-11:00AM +1w.

Is something with my formatting wrong or am I missing something bigger?

  • I'm on emacs 24.5 and the repeater is working for me. Maybe should should need to view the agenda for the whole month – Dieter.Wilhelm Sep 16 '15 at 11:13
  • Sorry: Maybe you need to view the agenda for the whole month to see the repeater in action? With typing C-c a a v m – Dieter.Wilhelm Sep 16 '15 at 11:20
  • Thanks Dan, I checked it out though and nothing was there. I had to use euluis's method.. or else I am just doing something wrong with the formatting when I initially schedule. – Adam Thompson Sep 16 '15 at 22:06

I am using Emacs 24.3.1 and Org-mode version 7.9.3f.

Pressing C-c C-d (or C-c C-s) and then typing in the mini-buffer a date and time period plus "+1w" (or "++1w") will result in the repeater part being ignored.

Since it didn't worked, I then go to the created DEADLINE or SCHEDULED and place the repeater:

DEADLINE: <2015-09-15 9:00AM-11:00AM ++1w>

This post is a wee bit old, but just in case.

And Maybe I am not doing this right, but it always works for me.

I always do a : before Scheduled or Deadline

eg. :SCHEDULED: <2019-07-06 9:00AM +1w>

I also think you should only do 1x + as in my example.

I am GNU Emacs 25.3.1
