From Safari on IOS, I am creating a deep link to open a new event on the google calendar app.
The deep link looks like this

And that all works great - when the link is clicked, the google calendar app is opened, and the create new event sceen is open with the all the information in the link.


I also want to add a RECURRENCE RULE to the link, so that when the calendar app opens with a new event, it will have some repeating on it. (For example, repeat every day). This is the part I can not figure out


1: A working link that when clicked from IOS safari, opens up the google calendar app with a new event

2: AND that link has a recurrence rule built in so that when the event is opened in google calendar, it has "repeat daily" on it by default.

3: It is NOT sufficient to open up google calendar WEB with a recurrence rule, it has to be the google calendar app

Google calendar on phone does not support recurrence rules on deep linking.

As URL encoded on your link it will be :

Hi, just as a trial, I tested to set the url link like in a web browser :

It works on my android device, which automatically opens google calendar app. May be it could be the same on ios. You can try it from this link :

I've tried that and it doesn't work :/ I think there is a different param handling for web calendar ( vs deep linking ( for Example the below recurrence rule works fine on web, but not on mobile:
