[resolved] Overnight multiple day event with different start and end time (4 posts)

    Say I have an event, like a retreat or camping trip, that starts at 6pm on Friday and ends at 11am on Sunday. Is there a way to do that?

    Right now, the date and time seem detached - you set the dates, then set the times separately, an the system assumes that those are the start and end times for each day of a multi-day event, rather than a single start and end time that spans multiple days.

    sorry for the confusion, have you tried to set the start date to let say april 30 with start time of 6:30 and then end date is may 1 with end time of 11:00am ?

    That's the limitation - it doesn't connect the start date with start time, or the end date with end time. The option you have is start date and end date. Then on the next line is start time and end time. It then says that my event is from April 30 to May 1, starting at 6:30pm and ending at 11:00am EACH DAY, rather than the whole duration.

    The start/end dates are not specifically attached, its more how you choose to display them.

    You can use placeholders to display dates and times ina different way using different placeholders to #_EVENTDATES and #_EVENTTIMES, as described here:

    or you can also combine conditional placeholders to show different formats for multi-day and single-day events:
