2.2.86 [RFC5545] Section 3.8.5.2 Recurrence Date-Times

V0189:

The specification states that the default value type of RDATE is DATE-TIME, but it can be set to a DATE or PERIOD type.

Microsoft Office Outlook 2007, Microsoft Outlook 2010, Microsoft Outlook 2013, Microsoft Outlook 2016

Outlook can export RDATE as a DATE if both the recurrence and the exception are all-day. Outlook can export RDATE as a DATE-TIME if both the recurrence and the exception are not all-day. Outlook does not export RDATE if the recurrence and exception are not of the same all-day state. Outlook does not export RDATE as a PERIOD.

On import, Outlook can import an RDATE of type DATE or DATE-TIME. Outlook ignores RDATE properties of type PERIOD.

Outlook does not support the arbitrary creation of instances in recurrences. Outlook attempts to match RDATE values to EXDATE values and treat these pairs as moved instances conforming to the rules specified in [MS-OXCICAL] section 2.1.3.1.1.20.18. If an RDATE cannot be paired with an EXDATE, Outlook's error recovery depends on if the iCalendar object is being imported as a Calendar object or a Calendar folder (section 2.2.2). If the iCalendar object is being imported as a Calendar object, the unmatched RDATE is ignored. If the iCalendar object is being imported as a Calendar folder, the unmatched RDATE is split off into a separate appointment or meeting.

V0190:

The specification states that non-standard, value data type, and time zone identifier property parameters can be specified on the RDATE property.

Office Outlook 2007, Outlook 2010, Outlook 2013, Outlook 2016

Outlook exports the VALUE parameter on RDATE if the value data type is DATE. Otherwise, Outlook exports the TZID parameter.

Outlook can import the TZID parameter on the RDATE property. All other parameters are ignored.

V0191:

The specification states that the RDATE property can be specified within VEVENT, VTODO, VJOURNAL, or VTIMEZONE components.

Office Outlook 2007, Outlook 2010, Outlook 2013, Outlook 2016

Outlook can export RDATE in VEVENT components. On import, Outlook ignores any RDATE properties outside of VEVENT components.

V0192:

The specification states that multiple instances of the RRULE and EXRULE properties can be specified to define more sophisticated recurrence sets.

Office Outlook 2007, Outlook 2010, Outlook 2013, Outlook 2016
