Open in edit when you double click events
I suggest that you open all events, meetings bookings in edit (less clicks) mode when you x2 click it
Here! Here! badly needed. Why was it ever changed....
Yes! Microsoft's user interface is inconsistent with the rest of the Mac UI. Please change it so when we open an item, we can edit it. AND also add the alarm and location fields which are strangely missing from the non-edit window.
terrible UI decision - UX should never go backwards in new versions.
Glad I'm not the only one struggling with this odd experience in the calendar interface. I would use all my votes on this idea if I could.
I edit meetings more than I care for on the daily. It's enough that I'm considering toggling off the new Outlook for Mac until this calendar feature is adopted.
I SO agree. This is Microsoft in a nutshell, introducing *more clicks in interactions you use all the time. I'm baffled that you just can't click anywhere and just edit it.
This is a new feature that increases frustration for no reason. When opening my own calendar event, I should be able to edit it immediately - no need for a read-only view.
It's a small action, but it adds up time & frustration
Holy cow, yes. This is a PAIN with zero benefit.

When I open an existing event, I often want to edit something like add a recipient or a meeting agenda item. Having a read-only screen and needing to click Edit Event is an extra step that I wish didn't exist.
Instead, the way Google Calendar does it is great -- if you double click the event you see all the details, and you can edit any of the fields.

The Extra step is annoying. The simplest use case example I can think of is when you create an event, then discover a spelling mistake or want to copy in some info from an email or doc. The having to click edit is jarring in its difference to expectation.
Strongly in agreement - the "new" interface in this regard is a step backwards.
David Goldman commented
I strongly agree with this. I've been frustrated trying to edit events many times, before realizing that I have to click "edit event" before I can edit. And even once I've memorized that, having another step before I can edit will still slow me down unnecessarily.
