Date and time that an entry was created
I would love to see the date and time an entry was created when I schedule an appointment in the calendar. My problem is that I'm scheduling time slots for clients and sometimes I'm busy for instance driving and I don't have time to put in their phone numbers. I'll put a first name only. Well then if they forget to follow up and send me the email the info, I'm left trying to figure out who it was I was saving that time slot for. My business is getting so busy that it's happened several times lately. I really wish it had listed the date and time I created the entry so then I could match it up with my call log in my phone. I could probably track down the person that way easier. It actually would be nice if I could somehow transfer the name and the phone number of the person who called right into the calendar with a click-of-a button. That would help me immensely! Then I would not be stuck typing it all out and copy and pasting the number into the entry each time.
Could we have the option of viewing a timestamp of when an event, appointment, etc. was created? This would allow me to more easily find information on the event from other sources (email, texts, phone calls)

There should be an option to see all event details (e.g. in plain ASCII format) that can be found if calendar is exported to ICS between BEGIN:VCALENDAR and END:VCALENDAR keywords (date created, author, etc.) or obtained via Google API.

It would be great to have in the menu the possibility to see ALL DETAILS. If I export the calendar and see the event, i.e. everything between BEGIN and END...
Until bc adds that to the app, i have done this a couple yrs.now since i do not need every single event create date.........just certain ones.
Can use text editor or any spreadsheet like gnumeric.
Every calendar i might need to do that for, when í use ical import export apk iand export the calendar then quickly save contents in txt or html form right then for future create dates.
open the iCal (.ics) file (export it first) with a text editor (notepad is fine) or another app - you can check the code. Each event is a component called VEVENT so find the one you want and within that section the fields you are interested in is CREATED or LAST MODIFIED (possibly). It will look like this: "CREATED:20090221T204906Z"
So in the above example it was created 21-02-2009 at 20:49:06
The Z means UTC(GMT) time, if there is no Z present it means local time.

It would be helpful if there was a way to turn on logging so that I could see a history of what events were created when it would be amazingly helpful. The scenario where this is helpful is because I share a calendar with another person and I need to know who created a conflict when a conflict was created I have no way to tell which events were created before which events.
Ideally you have a setting called log events that creates a log indicating what event/task was created or edited at what time.
Or just store the creation and modification information in the task / event itself.

Manchmal ist es hilfreich zu wissen, wann ein Termin eingestellt wurde, oder wann der Termin ursprünglich mal war (nach Terminverschiebung). Eine Übersicht über die Änderungen wäre nützlich.
