Multiple suggestions to improve event management
We have many events per week because we are a large program. Some events are recurring, but often with differences each week (look at http://www.cmacskiracing.com/JuniorU16Calendar/ for an example). I get continual feedback from our coaches who need to enter items in the calendar that this is very cumbersome. For instance: 1. the event list a very sparse/inefficient layout. Can you format this in rows like a spreadsheet so I can see many more events? The current design uses only the left half of my screen. 2. the event list has no ability to filter by Tags 3. the event list no mult-select (e.g. to delete old events efficiently) 4. there is no bulk create or bulk update events 5. there are no recurring events (understand that this is also tracked in another wish item). Recurring events must support exceptions (e.g. we are cancelling this week or changing the day this week) 6. add new event: find the event for "copy from existing event" is a hassle: it has has no search feature to find the event I want to copy. 7. In "copy from existing event" the list of existing events should be single row/multi-column. Currently scrolling through hundreds of events again very inefficient with the tall rows and small dialog box.
Bottom line is that the current design for event management is so inefficient I have my program asking for a better solution....

Thanks Evgeny, If you ever want to chat about this, please reach out to me.
Changed my mind: decided to put it under Usability improvements category
The format of Wishlist is to have a separate topic/thread per each idea - this way we can have a proper discussion and after that, analyze and design. With issues combining a lot of different things, chances are we will never make it.
I'm moving this thread now into General forum.
