Most my calendar events have just one start time,
but my kids' events aren’t that simple.
A marching band performance may be at 7pm,
but the bus to the stadium leaves at 4pm.
Since we live by notifications,
it’s important to get those notifications
at the earliest time at which we need to act.
The other times
are likely just extra details that can go
into the event title
or event details.
I can get a notification for 4pm
and realize I don’t need to be there until 7pm,
but I can’t tolerate a 7pm notification
if I was supposed to be dropping a kid
at the practice at 4pm.
If I find it’s important to see notifications
for all the potential times of an event,
then it’s probably best to break
that event into more than one event:
drop-off, performance, and pick-up.
