Is there a way to automate event creation ?

Hi

With our previous calendar plugin we used URLs to create our shift rota events for the next several months.

We used a script to generate the URLs so creation of our shift rota is somewhat automated.

These URLs would create a week long event every 7 weeks for 3 shift pattern rotations, ie covering 21 weeks :

This functionality no longer works with the Team Calendar plugin.

Is there a way to automate event creation ?

Thanks
