Future appointments in the series are visible in Pipeliner using the Calendar view or in the Agenda panel. If you’re using the List View or a Report, you’ll see the next Recurring Appointment and the following one only. This is by design so that lists and reports are not cluttered by future recurring appointments.
It is not currently possible to create Recurring Appointments directly in Pipeliner.
