    When you add the new event (one for each day's classes, in your case), there's an option to set how often to repeat it, as well as an end date to stop.

    If you have a MWF class, for example, you'd add three weekly events, one for each time it met. A minor hassle, but not too bad. Edit: not true; see Silver-Fox's post below.

    THERE is an option, click on the event and the bar on the right should pop open! if not drag it right and then click on repeat and select how often you want to repeat it!

    Hope this helps

    You can get an event to Repeat as often as needed. when you create a new event (or edit an old one) just change the repeat settings in the sidebar.

    there is an option so that it does fill out everyday of the week

    choose “Custom” from the pull-down menu next to the “Repeat” item in the Information window, then select the appropriate days of the week.

    i think that is right :p

    iCal Alarm

    Why are there two alarms when you're editing an event?

    *Edit* Uh, I meant to post a new topic, but I wasn't concentrating I guess and I posted in this topic. Feel free to answer, though!
