My suggestion is...

Redesigned Calendar

Potential problems I've seen:
When selecting an event on the calendar it creates a border around the day cell. That border stays when scrolling from month to month and back again. It does not disappear until you select a new date. People could find this confusing because it appears that the border signifies the current date.
When viewing event details it is now a multiple step process. More steps, and you now have to scroll to the top of the page to get back to Month view.
Category color symbol for an event is very small and makes some color contrasts difficult to distinguish.
I hope you will consider improving on these little quirks. Thank you.

        Hello! First, thank you all for your feedback and patience. We are looking at ways to address feedback around the calendar changes.

        For starters, we are considering:
        a) renaming "All Day" to "Today" where it is referenced.
        b) moving times on the month view to after the Event title (so that we can display more of the title... likely removing them from this view).
        c) allowing the clicking of individual events to go right to the detail view.

        This sounds like it would begin to address some of the most common issues, but I would welcome any feedback around these changes or the calendar in general at rich.haynor@blackboard.com. Thank you!
