User Expectation on a Master Calendar
I'm a web intern retrofitting the master calendar page of the University I work for. We're updating the site for responsiveness (yay!) after a long spell of not being responsive at all (boo).
Currently, on mobile resolutions, I've set the calendar to show a list of events rather than a 7-column classic calendar view. It looks something like this:
But when a day has no events planned, the day collapses (vs. the day cell on the 7 column calendar simply being empty):
The dilemma my team is wondering about is this:
- Is it more helpful to the user to see a collapsed day that has no events, or
- Cleaner to remove them entirely and leave it up to the user to realize what day an event is on?
- Something else?
What would you expect as a user? Thanks for your input.
