Open Recurring Event behavior changes

Post by chota300 » Fri Aug 28, 2020 2:08 pm

I use VM on Win10 64bit.
Sometimes when I open a recurring event, I get the options to open this occurrence or all occurrences.
Sometimes I also get the option to open this occurrence and all that follow.
I do not understand why I do not always get the option to open this and all that follow.
No hurry.
Thank you.

If you click the first occurrence of a recurring series, you'll only see 2 options (this occurrence or the entire series). If you click an occurrence that came after the first occurrence, you'll see 3 options (this occurrence, this occurrence and all that follow, or the entire series).

The reason "this occurrence and all that follow" isn't an option when clicking the first occurrence is because that's logically the same as opening the entire series, so confusion can be reduced by not providing redundant options that do that same thing. At least, that's the theory. It appears that decision still caused some confusion, so I'll re-think it.
