Thank you as always for doing such a nice job walking us through all the new stuff. I downloaded iOS 14 a few days ago but haven't been able to install it yet due to wonky wi-fi. I'm trying some possible fixes for this though, and will install the update asap.

I can find the day I want, but I can't find the numbers, or how to fill in the field for the end of the event.
