Add an entry to the calendar without a program

Add an entry to the calendar without a program

It would be very helpful to be able to add a calendar entry without having it obligatory linked  to a program. For example, I'd wish to enter the national holidays in the calendar but I can't because it needs to be linked to a parent program.

You can... by creating a dummy parent program, Holidays, and adding them manually to that local program calendar, which rolls up to global. 

I agree, I want this feature & voted for it. But you can do it now, it's just annoying. Cart before the Horse in some of our ways of working.

In our roadmap, we do have an item to handle holidays. Details and timing TBD. 

But it is unlikely (but never say never, right) that entries can live outside programs.

I like this as a starting point - but I think the ability to add entries outside of a program would be very useful. For example, if a colleague asks for an email in a month's time, you don't want to have to create a program and a dummy send date just as a placeholder. Ideally, you could simply add a new calendar item "schedule" which you could use to avoid any potential scheduling issues, and as a placeholder until the email is built.

Agreed!  Adding placeholder items directly through the calendar would be a GREAT addition!
