Is there a way to not have "all day" automatically checked when I create a new event?

I rarely add things to my calendar that are all day, so is there a way to stop it from auto-checking when I create a new event?

& just as an extra, would there be a way to auto set the times that do come up? For example, a lot of stuff that I add usually starts at 8AM, could I have that be the default option when I create a new event?

I apologize if this isn't the right place to ask this question. If anyone has any advice or tips on how I can do that, it would be really helpful!

Thank you for your time!


  • Which calendar view are you using? Because if you set the Week for instance it would force you to click in the timetable and then the time would automatically set.

  • @Jason I have it set to custom 4 weeks

  • Ok good suggestion, one thing you can do right now to save a click is to uncheck the "Detect time" in the General options this will present you immediately with the "All day" button. But I can queue for development the ability to also default to "timed events". And maybe set a default time.

  • @Jason Yea I already had that option unchecked & the "all day" button shows checked. Is there any way to not have it auto-checked?

  • Ok understood that's why I've queued for development, thanks for the suggestion.

  • Good news, I've added an option to unselect the "All day" in v36.0

    hopefully that will help a bit.

  • @Jason THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!!! I really appreciate you doing that!

  • Do not help.

    Regardless of the options, the time always appears and in no case "all day" button shows checked.
