Event Fields

Start / End

The Start and End fields are mandatory. Click the icon next to the date field to select a date from a monthly calendar:

 

To select a date, simply double-click it in the monthly calendar or click the date and then click outside of the calendar. The calendar will close and the date will be selected. You can always press ESC if you want to close the calendar without changing the date.

An event can last for several days so the event's End day does not have to be the same as the Start day.

To set time for an event, you need to enter the start and end times after the dates in the Start and End fields, respectively. Note however, that start and end times are not obligatory. You can have an event without any time set for it ("untimed" event) or you can have an event with only one time, either start or end, set.

You should enter dates and times in accordance with the format set in Regional Options available from the Control Panel of Microsoft Windows.

Dates and times can be incomplete: for example, if you type only “10 13", Vine interprets this as 1:00 pm on the next possible tenth day of a month. Nevertheless, it is recommended to fully specify dates and times in order to avoid possible errors.

When you leave the Start edit box or select the Start date in the monthly calendar, the End field is automatically adjusted so that the duration of the event will not change. If you want to change the duration you have to edit the End field.
