Creating Recurring Events in Webflow

Webflow CMS does not have a built-in capability to support recurring events, however this it's not hard to use an external calendar and a bit of automation to create those event CMS items for you automatically.

This gives you a ton of capability, because in the real world, event details change. A real site needs to be able to represent cancellations, event time changes, event venue changes. In the age of COVID, we need to deal with mask rules, vaccine passes, attendance limits, and zoom links.

And just as importantly- if you're building a site for clients, it needs to be easy for them to manage those event schedules too. As easy as, say... a Google Calendar.

So let's do exactly that.

Here's a walkthrough on how I do automated events on my sites.
