  1. Bring back numeric "buttons" for entering time of events rather than wheels

    Now that you folks have drastically improved the date picker in PI5.1 by reverting to a PI4-style calendar you can tap on... please fix time entry for events & bring back numbers you can tap on! If the old PI4 keypad layout doesn't fit with your new in-line design sense, how about 2 rows of numbers/symbols: first row has buttons for 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 & second includes 7, 8, 9, 0, :, and am/pm toggle?

    This wouldn't take up any more vertical space than the current wheels and would be more precise - particularly since PI5 now…

        • Tips at startup

          Create a "Tips" interface that highlights new features and how to use them, one tip screen at a time, like some other apps do. Have it start automatically on each launch after an update until someone chooses"Don't Show Again". That would pop up a quick message telling them how to manually launch it in the future.

          • Shortcuts for views

            I often change between 'week' and 'agenda' views. I want one button for week and one button for agenda. Essentially - a one-click way of accessing 'week', 'agenda', or any other view the user might want.

            • Option to show event location in Watch complication

              I primarily use my watch to assist with managing my time during the day - particulalry keeping track of my appointments. So it is essential that I be able to see at a glance location of my next appointment - or that of another later in the day via Time Travel.

              On the other hand, I imagine that some folks would prefer more details about their events... so please give user the option to include/exclude the location.

                • Old style planner

                  I d like to have back PI with its classical, first, old fashion style.
                  As it is is another planner without personality and appeal.

                  • Watch complication settings

                    Options for the watch complication could be:
                    1) Show Upcoming appointment (as it is now)
                    2) Show current day / date - this way it can be used in place of the current ios calendar complication

                    • Remove wheel for pick hours and minutes

                      the wheels to set hour and minutes are very annoying and take more time to set appointment than pick a number as it was before.
                      Please give an other option (you can leave the wheel for those who like it!).

                      • Delete multiple events at one time

                        If it's not possible already, I would like the ability to delete several events (regular and reoccurring) at one time from the day calendar view. (I use iPhone and iPad). For example, I have a repeating event to exercise every day, along with other repeating events, plus one time events. At the end of the day when I want to delete the events I completed, I have to delete them one by one. If I have many, it can be time consuming. Plus, to delete repeating events, I have to check whether to delete just that particular day's event, future…

                            • bring back time increments to the date picker

                              I prefer the wheel based method of picking time however it would be nice to see the increment options from the original Informant 5 time picker come back. Most times I just need to see 15 minute increments so having to scroll 29 times just to get to :30 is a bit of a pain.
