Hello XDA Assist,

I am trying to find a calendar that will allow me to input my work schedule. I thought that would be the easy part but I seem to be wrong.
My work schedule is 2 on and 2 off, it does not change. They are 12 hr shifts but calendars just do not seem to like 2 on and 2 off. My goal is two simply be able to plug in my work days for , lets say the next year or two but the calendars I have tried will not allow me to do this.
Her is an example of what my shifts look like, do not take this thewrong way but a lot of people get confused when I tell them I work 2 on and 2 off.

MON TUE WED THU FRI SAT SUN MON TUE WED THU FRI SAT SUN

That said, this did picque my interest, and you don't need a specific app to achieve what you want.

My calendar of choice (Business Calendar) lets me specify as below, but the default Google Calendar app seems to have limited options.
However, if you use the web version of Google Calendar you can do exactly the same without any special app.

It'll work to set two events set to repeat daily every 4 days.
For example, if you work today and tomorrow, create the first event as
Work1
Start on: Sunday, June 8, 2014
Repeat: Every 4 days
All-day Event

Now your calendar will show (today is Sunday in my time zone) Work1 on
Sunday, Thursday, (next week) Monday, (next week) Friday, etc.

Then create another event as
Work2
Start on: Monday, June 9, 2014
Repeat: Every 4 days
All-day Event

Now you calendar will show Work2 on
Monday, Friday, (next week) Tuesday, (next week) Saturday, etc

Nothing says you can't name the two the same, I just did different names for clarity.

If you have additional or follow-up questions, please make a post in General discussion > Questions and Answers.
