Description Jean-François Fortin Tam 2016-07-10 00:45:57 UTC
When clicking a cell, a popover shows up with
1. A label that says "New event on $CELL_DATE"
2. An empty GtkEntry text field
3. The calendar chooser combobox
4. Some buttons

#1 is pointless. Instead, show a label with helpful tips/reminders for users to use the syntax, especially once bug #700673's feature request is implemented, it could be something like, 'Enter an event title below. Times and places will be detected automatically, ex: "12h30 lunch with Warren Buffet at Tim Horton's" '
