Looks very nice but the number of agenda items displayed on my calendar has now halved as mine are mainly single-line events (all-day events or title-only). I think it looks like this because the date number is now huge and the vertical coloured bar on each event seems to be bigger. Also, any icons are no longer the same colour as the calendar. Any chance of offering the old layout as an option ?
Hi John, thanks for the comments. We have a feature request open to add background colors to the events here: https://github.com/dakboard/Cloud-Platform/discussions?discussions_q=1199 and if that’s something you’re looking for, I’d recommend voting on that or adding a comment. Thanks.
Love all your updates/work 🙂 thank you
