Julian Robichaux941 - 30 2007 / (0)
Currently if you use a Notes date/time control on a form in the client, the control field still has the small calendar button on the right when it's in Read mode (see attached screenshot).
This has never made sense to me, because you can't change the date in Read ...

Stephen Bailey1802 - 11 2008 / (1)
This may be available in Notes 8, I'm not sure, but.
In Notes 7 and before, invitees to a meeting can delegate a meeting to a colleague.
However, the chair of a meeting is unable to hand over "chair rights" to the meeting to someone else. I'm sure ...

: calendar, usability
Eric Wilson1688 - 07 2008 / (0)
It's a BIG nuisance that once a Celendar Entry is saved you can't change its type or it's repeat properties.  This leads to lots of recreation of Enties on a regular basis.
PLEASE fix this.  I hear from customers about this more often than I'd like and I encounter ...

Gregory Engels1706 - 27 2009 / (0)
Sometimes it happens that an invited Room or resource declines the invitation (for example due to the fact that the capacity of the room would be exceeded otherwise). Since the room is moore important then other invitees (you could end up fighting with some other party who also think they ...

When you create a repeating meeting/appointment, you cannot edit the reoccurence information. For example, if I create a repeating appointment for every Tuesday for the next 5 weeks, and want to extend it. there's no way to edit this.

Bill Malchisky12192 - 09 2008 / (0)
The side bar in the ND8 client has a nifty Day-At-A-Glance feature. Problem is that when you have multiple appointments/reminders/ToDo items, as you accomplish things and the day progresses, it looks like you still have a full plate.
Create the option to strike-through entries in the panel applet, so ...

In 7.0.2, we got the ability to "subscribe" to iCal calendars - great idea, but the implementation when compared to other calendars left a little to be desired - import only.  If the calendar is updated, oh well, you can remove the calendar, or change it's name, but not update ...
