In the calendar, multiday events that ends the selected day are currently presented like "00:00-14:30", and correspondingly are multiday events that start the selected day presented like "21:00-23:59". In my opinion, a better way to present the event times would be to skip the "00:00" and the "23:59" parts, which in my world only is unnecessary information. The examples above would then be written like "-14:30" and "21:00-", respectively. This way better corresponds to my mental picture of the events ("Event X ends at 14:30", rather than "Event X starts at midnight and ends at 14:30"). As a side note, events that start before and end after the selected day are already handled as a special case ("All day").

I modified /usr/share/jolla-calendar/pages/EventTimeLabel.qml but have nowhere to send a patch or pull request.

EDIT: The patch is now available via Patchmanager 2.0: Don't start/end events at midnight

@luen just as suggestion. maybe for better representation you could place nearby a screenshot of the original view for having a good comparison between before and after....
