    Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      Default event types don't have a What field (and have non-compulsory Summary further down instead), whereas custom events do have the compulsory What field (towards the top and no Summary).

      It's very confusing for users to have to create/edit calendar entries differently depending on the Event Type. We don't differentiate Event Types as custom or default internally - we just want the calendar to work the same way for everyone/everything.

      The What/Summary fields show as the “description” in the calendar view so they are helpful.

      We would just prefer not to have them as different fields for each event type - and not be compulsory.
