I need a way to set in my workschedule wich repeats over 5 weeks in the calender, it looks like this:

NNNN FFF
LLL FF MM
MM FF NNN
FFF LLLL
FF MMM FF

(Night, Free, Late, Morning)

Is there any way to do this? I really want it in my calendar and not as a seperate app, I've seen "My Work Schedule" and "Work Calendar Lite" but they're not at all what I need.

Using a Samsung Galaxy S3, hope somebody's able to help me out, this really sucks, especially since my colleagues can easily do it on their Iphone ...

I think the best way to accomplish this is to find a service which allows you to sync a suitable calendar over webcal to your Google account. I know of one such service (WebCal.fi) but unfortunately it only supports Finnish shift rotations. –  onik Oct 18 '12 at 9:21
    
Thanks for the reply, thinking of just using the google calendar API to solve this problem, have some experience as a webdeveloper so it shouldn't be too hard –  Rakward Oct 18 '12 at 14:02
    
I'm the author of WebCal.fi. Currently it only supports Finnish workshifts, but I can add this calendar in other languages as well. Please contact me (you'll find my e-mail at webcal.fi) as I need to ask a few specific questions on this issue. –  user27687 Feb 1 '13 at 12:56

As far as I can tell, this is not possible within Android's calendar apps. It is possible, however, in Google Calendar's web app. If you are syncing with a Google account, you can go to Google Calendar and set up events to repeat every 5 weeks. You would have to set up each segment separately, but you could then set that segment to repeat every five weeks.

For example:

  1. Go to Google Calendar
  2. Add an event for one day of work (say, a single night shift)
  3. Edit event...
  4. Check box for "Repeat..."
  5. In the popup that appears, set to repeat every 5 weeks, and select the days that week that have the same schedule (e.g., Mon, Tues, Wed).
  6. Repeat for each segment in your schedule.

If you use the same Google account to sync your calendar to your phone, the schedule should appear shortly.

This is exactly what I did, had been meaning to post it here but completely forgot. This works great if anybody is still interested. The only problem is that it shows up all screwed up in my gf's agenda-app on her phone, though it displays fine on her google calendar a normal browser ... I'm gonna try and upgrade her phone to the latest android, hopefully that solves it ... –  Rakward Feb 2 '13 at 20:35

if you want just to enter your shifts and make them repeat, so you can see when you working or not, there are plenty of such apps on the android market, for example - Shift Work Schedule ( this one is free).
