Simple Calendar Event Inconsistency

Postby hyrumw » Fri Nov 18, 2011 7:42 am

If you create an event on the calendar by simply clicking a half hour slot, you'll get an hour-long event. However, if you click and drag an hour slot, you'll get a half-hour event. In fact, however much you select, you'll get a half hour less than you selected. This behavior seems wrong to me. Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

If all you do is click in the Week view of the calendar (no drag), then you're not clicking a half-hour slot -- you're just clicking. So it's an open question as to exactly what your expectation is. I don't see a choice of an hour-long slot as a bad choice for a default length; I've been to a lot more one-hour meetings than half-hour meetings.

Yes, I'm seeing that as well, and that can't possibly be working as designed. It's also a bit strange that as you drag, the selection increases in increments of a full hour; I would have thought that it would extend in half-hour increments. And regardless of the increment, the event that is created should have the length that you precisely specified by your drag operation. It doesn't right now, and that's got to be a bug.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
