I am developing a business application in which the user can select from one of these options, namely “Daily”, “Weekly”, “Monthly” or “Yearly”, for scheduling appointments. I need to create a field in the database to hold this value, but am at a loss for what to name the field.
What would be the collective term? In Outlook, the combination of the option plus the option-specific sub-options is headed “Recurrence pattern”, but that obviously applies to the complete selection. I am only interested in the collective term for “Daily”, “Weekly”, “Monthly” and “Yearly”.
Perhaps just “recurrence”?
