Suggestion: Don't show "+1 more" in Month view


Post by aebrown »

In Month view, when there are too many events to fit in the box for a particular day, you will generally see the first 4 events (that number may be slightly different in different situations) followed by something like "+3 more" to let you know that there are 3 more events. Clicking on the "+3 more" produces a popup that shows all the events for the day (perhaps with a scroll bar if necessary to see the whole list).

It's a minor annoyance for me that when there are 5 events on one day, I see 4 events and then "+1 more". Aside from programming convenience, what's the point of that? There's obviously room to show all 5 events. Then the user can see them all and doesn't need to do an additional click to see that 5th event. The "+n more" is really only needed when 6 or more events appear on a single day.

This clearly isn't a huge problem, but it would improve usability if all 5 events could appear in the box.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
