Description

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:22.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/22.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20130627161625

Steps to reproduce:

1) Create repeated event (for example "TODO", from 01 JUN to 01 SEP 2013, EVERY DAY).
2) After some days clear some of it (because I did it) (for example clear on 01 JUL all events from 01 JUN to 01 JUL).
3) After some weeks (days?) change start day of this event (new start day must more then one of past cleared events of this event) (for example then change start day from 01 JUN to 01 JUL).


Actual results:

I see this repeated event in events list (when Find Events switch on), but I cannot see it in Calendar (day, month and so on).

When I export this Calendar - I see in ICS many strings "EXDATE".
When I clear this strings and import this Calendar as new - all events appeared.


Expected results:

I want to see such events in all calendars.

This must added:
"In events list (when Find Events switch on) I see this event only if I prefer "All events" and "All future events"."

Excuse me, I do not know - how to edit my message :(

And how I can mark event(!) as completed without clearing it?
If you delete a single occurrence of a repeating event, then shift the dates of the entire series, the deleted occurrences are shifted as well.

Instead, you could extend the Repeat Until date (or set it to "Forever"), or create a new repeating event each month and delete the old one from the Find Events list.

You could create a repeating task instead, those can be marked as completed. You can show tasks in the calendar views with the menu setting:

View -> Calendar -> Current View -> Tasks in View

When I worked with such CRM as ACT! - I can make repeated activities and then I can mark one occurrence of it as "done".

And I do not want to use tasks instead - because I use it for another purposes.

And - very importent - how can I see my events in calendar now?

I see, it is very strange, IMHO...
