Have Display Options for Events > 24 hours

Post by A Room with a Vue » Sat May 26, 2018 7:38 pm

If an event is longer than 24 hours, it automatically shows up at the top of the column as a small "all day" type event. Unless you remember to look up there, you can mistakenly think the day is available for that calendar (assuming only one event per time period). It would be great if you could choose whether or not you want the entire reserved time to be "blocked out" (displayed in the "normal" section of the calendar) for these longer events.

NOTE: I discovered a minor bug related to events longer than 24 hours that I'll post as a separate topic.

Thank you for the suggestion. I've added this to my to-do list and I'll post a reply when it's completed.

Thanks. I should add that it would be best if this were either a global setting, or at least be allowed to be set for individual events from subscribed calendars, since I may want to change this for events that were not created by me (allowing both methods would be great!).

For the individual event setting, maybe make this option similar to changing the event's appearance. Meaning I am still able to change how the event is displayed on VM, even if I can't change the actual event details from VM.
