It seems that the repeat button when I am creating an event is not there / disappeared. Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong?
Brooke, I think that feature is in beta, so you might need to turn it on for each class you want to use it for. My recommendation is to go to your course settings, click on Feature Options tab, and then look for Recurring Calendar Events. This should be turned "on." If it's off and you don't have the option of turning it on (or if it's not showing up), then you would want to contact Canvas Support/Canvas Admin at your Institution.
Hope this helps!
