In WSS 3.0, recurring events have IDs for each specific recurrence, as well as the series item. For example, I might have a series item with
ID=3, and it runs weekly on Wednesday. Then, the April 27th instance of this event is
However, when one of our clients sent out an email that was intending to link to this event, her hyperlink was to
ID=3.0.2011-04-27T19:00:00Z. This caused an unknown error and so the specified ID did not work.
No matter what I try in accessing that event, I cannot get that string, I always get
ID=32.1.3. But the client (who is otherwise unfamiliar with SharePoint) is just copy-pasting the URL as it shows up in the browser, which means there had to be some way of getting that other ID initially, and it must have been valid.
Why are there two different formats of IDs? What do they mean? And how do I know when I should be using which one for valid URLs?
