    I work rotating shifts and can’t figure out how to enter my schedule on my Touch with the current Calendar application.

    With my palm-top computer I simply created events titled: Day1, Day2, Day3, Mid1, Mid2, & Mid3. Each of these events were created as repeating events — repeating daily every twelfth day. Then I created Off1, Off2, & Off3 as repeating events — repeating every 6th day.

    Or another example would be Mother’s Day. It would be nice to be able to create an event that repeats monthly every 12mo (2nd Sunday of every 12th month).

    Is there any way to do something similar that I’m overlooking?

    Any assistance would be appreciated.

    i was just wondering the same thing... it would be good if someone could make an app like homework app or something so you can click on which day you'r working and just input start and finish time...

    Here's a very late update:

    I wound up getting SaiSuke Calender App (this was before my iPod Touch would sync with Google's Calendar). Now, of course, there would be no need to get an extra app, but SaiSuke is pretty cool anyway and only $10.

    So, I then created events for my particular rotating schedule:

    On two, off two. On three, off two. On two, off three. Then switch shifts from Days to nights and do the same thing: On two, off two. On three, off two. On two, off three. Then switch shifts again.

    Rather than inputting a schedule every month with an app for shiftwork, you simply create 21 repeating events (for my schedule) and your schedule is done for infinity!

    Days
    D1a (every 28 days)
    D1b (every 28 days)
    D2a (every 28 days)
    D2b (every 28 days)
    D2c (every 28 days)
    D3a (every 28 days)
    D3b (every 28 days)
    Midz
    M1a (every 28 days)
    M1b (every 28 days)
    M2a (every 28 days)
    M2b (every 28 days)
    M2c (every 28 days)
    M3a (every 28 days)
    M3b (every 28 days)
    Off

    O1a (every 14 days)
    O1b (every 14 days)
    O2a (every 14 days)
    O2b (every 14 days)
    O3a (every 14 days)
    O3b (every 14 days)
    O3c (every 14 days)
