Hi all,

I have some weekday-specific TODO-items; I use a diary-sexp to specify the
days:

** TODO do this every day
   SCHEDULED: <%%(memq (calendar-day-of-week date) '(1 2 3 4 5))>

However, understandably, org (using 6.21b) does not seem to recognize this
as
a *recurring* appointment, so when I mark it as 'DONE', the whole things is
marked as
CLOSED and things don't appear in my agenda anymore.

Now, I could work around it by:
 a) make five 'normal' recurring entries for each weekday
 b) don't use TODO, but just leave the item
but that is not really nice...

Is there some trick I am missing?

Best wishes,
Dirk.

This is not pretty but:


*** TODO <2009-06-29 Mon +1w> Foobar
*** TODO <2009-06-30 Tue +1w> Foobar
*** TODO <2009-07-01 Wed +1w> Foobar
*** TODO <2009-07-02 Thu +1w> Foobar
*** TODO <2009-07-03 Fri +1w> Foobar

You could simplify this to:

*** TODO Foobar
    <2009-06-29 Mon +1w>  
    <2009-06-30 Tue +1w> 
    <2009-07-01 Wed +1w> 
    <2009-07-02 Thu +1w> 
    <2009-07-03 Fri +1w> 

Still maybe not pretty but works just fine.  I do this for the
lectures I have to give for a given course, for instance.
