If changing repeating event, option which to change not easy to see
Open, LowPublic


When changing only one of a repeating event, it is possible, the option where to choose which one to change is at the bottom of the page though and you have to scroll to find it. It would be a lot easier if it were at the top!

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create repeating event
  2. choose one of the dates and click on change
  3. go to bottom

Actual result:
You have to scroll and option "change all" is default.

Expected result:
I can see at the top on first sight which one I am going to change, and can change it here (maybe option "only this event" should be default?).

Yeah, some clients even display the question dialog separately before you start editing. Another thing to do is to think about decluttering the dialog/form, so it does not display all these inputs initially and the question box is visible. Some UX work will be needed.

Alright. I take this one.

@machniak is that the direction you want to move into ?

Updated version

@machniak This is what I came up with. Would that work for you?

I like it. Especially that you didn't add a new tab, but merged with Attachments (we're limited on mobile). As once Jeroen was interested in decluttering event dialog, he might be interested to take a look. @vanmeeuwen

@bohlender you omitted the Reminder field, you think it should be in the Summary tab? I think it should.

@machniak the reminder can get pretty complex and add a lot of clutter. the easy solution was to (re)move it.
I will try another version with a redesigned reminder field.

@machniak I tried and it looks cluttered. What works is merging reminder and recurrence in one tab.
Would that work for you?

I don't think this is a good idea.
