Event Creation in Lightning 'Remembers' Time Settings When Toggling All Day Checkbox

Knowledge Article Number 000247211
Description

When in Lightning experience, if a user is on the Event creation screen, there is a checkbox called All Day Event. Setting values for the start and end times, then checking the All Day Event checkbox, will convert the start/end date/times into date fields. Upon unchecking the box, the input fields for start/end times get automatically converted back to date/time, allowing you to select specific times for the event again.

In Summer '16, if you set times for the start/end time fields, check the All Day Event checkbox, then uncheck it, the times that you had specified will be 'forgotten' in the sense that they will reset back to what they were before you set them. This is expected behavior in Summer '16.

EXAMPLE:
-----------------

In Lightning Experience, navigate to the Event creation screen. Suppose the default start time is 8/5/16 at 10:00am, and the default end time is 8/5/16 at 11:00am (NOTE: The default time is dependent on when you are clicking the Create Event button). Next, set the time values to something different, such as 5:00pm and 6:00pm respectively.  Checking the All Day Event checkbox, the times disappear and you are left with only the date fields 8/5/16 and 8/5/16. Unchecking the box, the times reappear, forgetting what the prior values were, and showing as the default 10:00am and 11:00am.

Resolution In Winter '17, the behavior changed. The expected behavior for Winter '17 and beyond is that when you check then uncheck the All Day Event checkbox, the times will reappear with the values you had set before checking the box.

EXAMPLE:
-----------------

In Lightning Experience, navigate to the Event creation screen. Suppose the default start time is 8/5/16 at 10:00am, and the default end time is 8/5/16 at 11:00am. Next, set the time values to something different, such as 5:00pm and 6:00pm respectively.  Checking the All Day Event checkbox, the times disappear and you are left with only the date fields 8/5/16 and 8/5/16. Unchecking the box, the times reappear, remembering what you set them to initially, and showing 5:00pm and 6:00pm.
