  1. That looks pretty good. Will the name of the event be shown in the calendar date box or will it be just highlighted and will have to be clicked on to see what event or events are set for that date and the detailed info? I think the location City listed sometimes there will be 2 events on the same day. “such as April 16 Des Moines & Kansas City.


  2. Ref my previous comment cancel that
    After I looked closer I could see the info I mentioned was there .
    Looks good I like it.

  3. Yep, clicking on the event will show some detail about it, including a map link… and of course the ability to add it to your Google calendar… or launch the details in a new tab to copy to another calendar.

    I’m going to take your advise, Arnie, and keep the details a bit minimal… but with a link or two for any detailed information. That was a great idea, not only in case any information was being changed at the last minute, but to maximize efficiency of determining the important details.

    If there are more events for that day, then there is space on the calendar to show, the calendar will indicate something like “+2 more” or “+4 more” and clicking that will then open a list of all the events on that day. All of which can be clicked on to open detail for each (individually).

    I’m glad that it’s looking good. Thanks!
