Sample: Convert an appointment to a recurring appointment

This sample shows how to convert an appointment to a recurring appointment series using the AddRecurrenceRequest message.

How to run this sample

  1. Download or clone the Samples repo so that you have a local copy.
  2. (Optional) Edit the dataverse/App.config file to define a connection string specifying the Microsoft Dataverse instance you want to connect to.
  3. Open the sample solution in Visual Studio and press F5 to run the sample. After you specify a connection string in dataverse/App.config, any sample you run will use that connection information.

If you do not specify a connection string in dataverse/App.config file, a dialog will open each time you run the sample and you will need to enter information about which Dataverse instance you want to connect to and which credentials you want to use. This dialog will cache previous connections so that you can choose a previously used connection.

Those samples in this repo that require a connection to a Dataverse instance to run will include a linked reference to the dataverse/App.config file.

What this sample does

The AddRecurrenceRequest message is intended to be used in a scenario where it contains the data that is needed to add recurrence information to an existing appointment.

How this sample works

In order to simulate the scenario described in What this sample does, the sample will do the following:


  1. Checks for the current version of the org.
  2. Creates an sample appointment that is later converted into an recurring appointment.


  1. Specifies the recurrence information that needs to be added to the appointment created in the Setup.
  2. Defines the anonymous types that define the possible recurrence pattern values and also possible values for days.
  3. Defines the anonymous types that define the possible values for the recurrence rule pattern and type.
  4. The RecurringAppointmentMaster specifies the recurrence information.
  5. The AddRecurrence message converts the created appointment into recurring appointment.
