[BUG] .epim export drops repeated property on repeated whole day events

Post by Nurgotora »

Fixed in 11.8

EssentialPIM Pro 11.6
Windows 10

Steps to reproduce:
* Select (one ore several) yearly repeated whole day events (e.g. Birthday)
* Export to new epim database
* Events in new Epim database:
- are not repeted events anymore
- have lost their original start-date

We're unable to confirm the issue. Please check if the issue occurs on a new database as well. If it does, please forward us the test database from which you're exporting the event(s). Thank you.

Further investigation yields:
- If you select and export the original *first* event (of the series) it will retain the repeat property
- If you select and export one of the subsequent events it will be just a "single event on that day"

I admit there's some logic to this ... but it's counterintuitive, unlike "Edit ...", the export does not ask if you'd like to export the single event or the series, and to export a list of all yearly events would mean that I have to find and select the *first* of each of them and export it individually.

Also, the .ics export *does* export the series even if you select and export one of the subsequent events

The issue has improved insofar as that the repeating events now retain their properties in the exported epim database ... but when that is opened, the repeats beyond the start-date are not shown, e.g. an event created on the 11.07.2013 and set to repeat yearly without end date is shown only on that 11.07.2013, but not in any subsequent year.

Can you reproduce the issue by creating a new recurring event?

Great, thank you. I can now confirm the issue, and it will be fixed in the next EPIM update.
