Hello all,

I have a question that's probably FAQ material but I was wondering
what the "best" way to do something like this would be:

I have a meeting that's scheduled from 10:00 - 11:00 for the next three
days.

I tried to create a heading with this property:
<2019-10-02 Wed 08:30-15:00 +1d>--<2019-10-04 Fri 08:30-15:00 +1d>

and I also tried this:
<2019-10-02 Wed 08:30-15:00>--<2019-10-04 Fri 08:30-15:00>

but the agenda shows Wednesday with the 8:30 - 15:00 and the Friday with
the 15:00
but on Thursday it shows simply 2/3.  - Is there a way to fix get Thursday
to show up in the agenda with the times blocked out?

I'd like to have the benefit of blocking out the time, as well as avoiding
the need to define
a new heading for every day.

Thanks,
--Nate

This is discussed in the FAQ on the org mode website.

Quick answer: not possible the way you wish.  Instead, the easiest solution is to make a one day entry and then use M-x org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift RET.

This works for me:

**  Meeting 08:30-15:00
<%%(org-block 2019 10 2 2019 10 4)>


You can even make the period discontiguous:

**  Meeting 08:30-15:00
<%%(org-block 2019 10 2 2019 10 4)>
<%%(org-block 2019 10 7 2019 10 8)>

org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift was already mentioned. Here is an
article that explains this in detail:
