I’m with you! I am really not happy about this change, because we also put placeholder events in our calendar for things like summer camp. Once we get details we update the event, including invite & remind dates.
No, I don’t like this either, why has this been changed. I wanted to alter something today on an event that was put in the calendar awhile back. This is too rigid for planning events for the future. Needs to be changed back!!!
This is a temporary change. Prior to the change, users would save placeholder events (like you all talked about in your comments), but once that event was saved the first time, those “send invites when” and “send reminders when” didn’t actually change. In other words, the current change is a reflection of what was already happening, the users are just aware of it now. However, our developer, Spencer, is working on getting the necessary code changes made for users to actually be able to edit those fields after initially creating and saving them. We are hoping to have that change live on the website in about a week.
In the meantime, we apologize for the inconvenience!
