I’m very excited for the events/calendar functionality, but I find the format of the title of event posts hard to read, especially the way we post webinar titles. It’s difficult to parse the important information when you see:
6-20, 09:00, (GMT-04:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) Webinar: Six questions to ask when using tech to improve access to justice (20 June 2018)
Can we make the default format of these topic titles easier to read?
- Can we lead with the name of the event, rather than the date and time, so it doesn’t take so long to get to the punch?
- It’s not clear that 6-20 means a date, it’s easier to know what it is if it’s written out…What do you think of having it say June 20?
- Is it necessary to include the long form name of the time zone? (e.g. 9:00, (GMT-04:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) )…can we just use GMT? or a shorter name for the time zones? btw does every person see the time in their own time zones? I assume yes; it’s not helpful if they only see ET. If not, I’d remove the ET time zone name and time entirely and go with GMT.
Also, when I click on the calendar icon, I keep on expecting to be sent to the calendar. Instead, it sends me to the topic. It’s kind of misleading - shouldn’t the icon of the calendar lead to the calendar itself, and the text of the topic lead to the topic?
Thanks for listening to my random thoughts.
