Events from date - to date event
« on: January 07, 2020, 04:41:51 AM »
Hi Marius,

Can we have an addition to the events please ?

Cuirrently we can select a date to trigger and event in conjunction with the hour and time.
Can we have from a date, to a date still with the hour and time ?

This would be excellent for things that you want to start on a date/and time and end on another date and time.
We can do it to an individual track but sometimes we want to have an event only be active for a specified number of days or alternatively (like Christmas, Easter, New Year, Local event etc to have the usual event stop, have another take over and then revert to normal at the end of the time period.

Is this possible ?

Kind regards and Happy New Year !

Can already be done with a workaround. Just place the event you want to have enabled/disabled in it's own Event category, and enable/disable that event category by other events. Yes, it's a workaround and it would be easier by doing it your proposed way, but if the option is really needed, the workaround will do the trick.

Thanks Calypso,

Yes, it's a bit dodgy but it will work. I will look at doing that.
