Generate Events up to (days):
Enter the maximum amount of days that JEM should auto-create recurring events in the future. This is called the 'anticipation window'. This setting has effect when you create recurring events. If the enddate you choose for a specific recurring event (the 'By the end of' date) will exceed the anticipation set here, the number of recurring events that JEM creates will be limited by this setting. You set the 'By the end of' date in the Repeating Events section of the Event edit screen, or when submitting an event from the Frontend.
You can select how the dates will be exported. If you chose 'float', when imported, all dates will appear as being in the same timezone as the user (e.g: if the event is at 2pm in the US, and the user is in France, it will appear as being held at 2pm in France too).
If you use 'Joomla' timezone, the dates will be associated to the timezone set in Joomla configuration.

Choose if quote or double-quote should be used to embrace fields on CSV Imports/Exports (e.g. attendee lists).
