    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?

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

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

    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 :)
