    Well I don't have any trouble doing it. I just edit it and when it asks me if I want to apply the edit to the whole series, just this one, or this one and all future ones, I select the appropriate option.

    Are you editing a recurring event, or are you editing a multi-day event? They're not the same thing.

    I've got a 1 hour long event that reoccurs weekly, but only two options I get are "Change all events in the series." and "Change this and all future events.". The option to only change one particular event is missing here as well.

    why do i only have the change all events option. this is so weird and annoying.

    i also wish i could choose how long i want to snooze a reminder.

    While we're at it, it really pisses me off that i can't set a specific time for a reminder. The limited set of '5 mins before ... 1 hour before ... 12 hours before etc' doesnt cut it if you need to remind yourself between getting up and leaving for work.

    Whoever coded the calendar app has obviously never had a 2pm meeting. I can be reminded at 2am (dont feel like getting up that early thanks) or 11pm onwards (sorry, already at work, way too late), but not, apparently, say, 8:30am. Utterly, utterly useless.

    Get a grip. Set your meeting, with a reminder before it if required, and put another "Meeting prep" event in, if you need to do something before the meeting then it needs time in your calendar by itself. Try using your brain a bit instead of just relying on being hand-fed precisely what you want and whining about the phone being "utterly utterly useless" when you don't get it.

    While the advice is good, the tone isn't. Let's keep it civil, please.

    I've been posting to the internet since 1991, pre-dating the WWW, I ran out of patience a *long* time ago..

    I didn't ask for patience.

    From the Site Rules & Guideline, under General Conduct:
    "Please treat other members with respect."

    That is all.

    I also can not edit "just this one". It's not an option. How did you resolve?
