Option in settings to have event editing windows to stay expanded.

Have option in "settings" to have the following windows stay expanded:

Event date and time
Event location details
Event cost and Tickets
Organizer contact info

Reason is...

If you have a lot of events and you are double checking the info on each one before publishing makes It hard to see if all data in all spots is correct. Or for that matter editing a mistake you made which carried through to the rest of them. (guilty!)
You have to keep expanding each one.
I do a lot of sports training events where I have each event blocked for an hour and for x amount of weeks and I clone them and change data.
Very cumbersome to verify if data is correct after doing 36 events (or more) in one sitting. Trying to remember which one you are on, if all the dates, times and info are correct, etc...

I don't understand the point of the expanding windows anyway... you are editing / creating the event... why should page space be an issue?

You have to scroll down anyway...

    BTW... fastest way to do it I found is to... do them all as drafts at one time...

    1) Create first event and "Save Draft".

    2) Open "All Events" Select "Drafts"

    3) Select "clone to draft" for the event to open in a new window.

    4) Change times, dates and ticket description...

    5) Select "Save Draft"

    6) After it has updated, close that window.

    7) In the "All Events"  "Drafts" Window add this to the url after the

    "?post_status=draft&post_type=ai1ec_event"

    Add this...

    "&orderby=ai1ec_event_date&order=desc"

    8) Then hit refresh.

    Now it will show the last event you just did...

    Then repeat 1 - 8 Skipping step 7.

     

    I do a lot of events where the data is the same. Just times and grades are changed.

    Example: (so you can get an Idea... this is just 3 classes for 3 hours... imagine doing 2 sessions for 12 weeks. As you can see little for the data needs to be changed.)
