One idea I had early on, but didn’t implement there, was that multi-day events should be able to have a different time for each day. In most calendar software, you would say an 3 day conference (for example) starts at 8am Tuesday, and ends at 5pm Thursday. This gets interpreted as 8am-5pm, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. That just always strikes me as inflexible.

I’ve also thought about how important ending times are. In the version below, I’ve opted not to include them.

Here’s where I’m at, right now:

It includes both of those ideas, and also hides the fields for location and ticket (or RSVP) information, unless those are desired.
