I guess this solution does not solve the problem. The days are not alternate, as in Friday is followed by Tuesday when we exclude weekends. IMO, with MS Outlook such a case cannot be executed.

If you want to do this, you can do it by:
1. Set up a recurring M, W, F meeting for every other week.
2. Set up a recurring T, Th meeting for every other week (specifically during the weeks when the M, W, F occurrence is skipped).

I don't know why you would need to have these meetings occur every other day so strictly (as opposed to just having them M, W, F every week, for example), but if you need to do it that should work.

Thank you! This was exactly what I needed.

I need to pick up kids every even day and wife will pick up uneven days - your suggestion saved the day :)

You do this when there is a rotation. My team has a task rotation. I do the task every 4th day excluding weekends. If I do Monday then the next is Thursday then Tuesday Then Friday.

wrong solution. Every other day (every second day) means: M - W - F - .- Tu - Th - . - M ....

How do you set up a recurring for every 5 days, not including weekend. Like a rotating reminder to work a specific log every 5 days. So it would not always be a specific day, like a Monday or Tuesday, that I would work this log but every Fifth day?

Hi,
Follow the guidance to open the Appointment Recurrence dialog box, and then tick all weekdays except Sunday and Saturday.

This solution does not work with Outlook 365 on the Mac. In the new design there is no option to pick the recurrence days.

How about when you have a task to do on the 1st of every month... but you want it to be the first WORK DAY of the month... I set up the appointment for day 1 every 1 month, but it is scheduling on the weekends if the 1st falls there. In earlier versions PRIOR to 365, there were many more options and flexibility with scheduling. There used to be an option where it asks you "if falls on a weekend" and then gave you options (keep, move to work day prior - aka friday... or move to work day after - aka Monday) Not having this function is really messing with my time and efficiency creating double bookings when I have tasks that should have had the time blocked. ugh...

Hi there,

I checked the Reccurence page on Outlook 365, there is an option of the first weekday of every month.

Hope this could help you.
