    Hi Guys,
    At the moment I'm 'temping' so iCal is a huge help to me, the only thing that's bother me is not being able to repeat an event for the duration of the contract.
    E.g I have a contract coming up on the 5th of October going on until the 10th, is it possible to have all the details from the first day of the event 'copied and pasted' onto every day between the 5th and 10th?

    Cheers

    If you make it an all-day event (check the all-day box when you create the event) and make entries in the notes field of that event, the notes will show across each day.

    Hi there,
    That works perfectly, but I've noticed now I can't set a starting/ending time...

    Correct. I don't see a way to do this with start/end times.

    *Solved*
    In case anyone has the same problem.
    Set up your event normally, under repeat select daily, and the end as 'on date' then select the date you want it to finish on.
    Of course you will need to delete the weekends (providing of course you're not working on the weekends)
    Hope this helps
