Create a recurring appointment to occur every nth weekday.....this is fundamentally flawed as the options only allow you to book a recurring meeting if it is on the First, Second, Third, Fourth & Last weekday of the month...…..no consideration for Fifth and so on! This should be such a simple fix, any suggestions?

Andrew - If you Save the ICS from the 2nd Weekday description shown above. You can open the ICS file in Notepad. Edit the following line and replace the "2" with whatever workday in the month you want.

RRULE:FREQ=MONTHLY;BYDAY=MO,TU,WE,TH,FR;BYSETPOS=2

For example: Changing to RRULE:FREQ=MONTHLY;BYDAY=MO,TU,WE,TH,FR;BYSETPOS=5 will make this repeat on the 5th weekday of every month.
