Slack Time Before and After Events

Post by eHuman » Fri Oct 19, 2012 4:54 pm

Many Events require commuting To and From the Event, a block of time to pack up stuff, networking opportunites before/after, etc.. The only way to ensure that nothing is scheduled during these timeframes is to schedule another event(s). If the Event/Appointment time is changed, these "extra" events must also be moved individually to match the new time slot for the Event.

I suggest providing option(s) to add slack time before/after Event to the Event detail options, and/or to provide a means of "Grouping" together a set of Events that could be dragged/dropped as a single block for rescheduling.

I also suggest allowing for creation of "Templates" which contain a pre-determined amount of slack time before/after, and/or a group of related events which can be readily accessed and selected when adding an Event to the calendar for ease of use of this feature.

Hi eHuman, thank you for the suggestion. I've added this to my to-do list and will post a reply when it's finished.

+1. Would love to see grouping a set of events made possible too.
