Collection List Date/Time Field to include an option for Multiple or Recurrent Dates

When adding an item into a Collection List, it would be useful if the Date/Time field allowed for multiple dates/times - or a recurrent date/time, eg. The second Wednesday of each Month at 5.30pm. This would be particularly useful for Event Calendar listings, as not every event takes place on a single day at a single time.

    I've built a few solutions to do this for clients, using multiple fields and doing date math in script to calculate the next event. It works, but I don't recommend it. You'll always have problems with cancelations, time changes, venue changes, notes, etc. A better way is to manage the events in a Google Calendar, and use automation to create Events as they approach, say 30 days out. Then you can easily show upcoming events, and also cancel/change/notes as needed. I did an article here for anyone who wants to try that approach.

    Yes! A general Date/Time field overhaul is much needed. If it can contain the same functionality that Asana's Due date field has, it would be perfect.

    eg. Travel offers with multiple starting dates... A workarund today is to create a table with all possible starting dates and connect this via multiselect. A nightmare.

    There must be a better way. Anybody?
