In 2020 I had asked how it's not possible ( and after what, 10yrs of Lightening being in production ) that in 2020 that when a person ( we will call him Bob ) send another person ( we will call her Sally ) an email ( and there are 2 other people on that same email ) that when Sally wants to QUICKLY and EASILY setup a meeting that people from the email from Bob are not just added to that new meeting and you are done?
This should be INCREDIBLY incredibly easy to do: right click --> Convert To..... ----> Event and then when the dialog box pops up, Bob, Sally, and the 2 other people are added to that meeting. Yet, No. Three years later? How can this be ?
In the original post https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1295910 and as commented on by @sfhowes it was suggested to ask on the chat groups. Yep. Did that. Nothing. Again, How can this be?
So, Let's add up the time it takes to do this, the number of clicks, etc,. and it's more than 5 mins just to go back and forth to the original email, copy and past peoples names and put them into the "attendees" dialog box. If I have to do 10 of these a day - and I often do, that's 1hr a day of meeting setup that I could do in literally 1 min if the above functionality worked and which it does on just about EVERY other email platform out there. Add this up, 1hr a day, 20 work days a month that's 20hrs a month * 12 = 240 hrs or TWENTY FOUR DAYS of our lives wasted every month making calendar invites where if right right click --> Convert To..... ----> Event and peoples names and email addresses were already added, this would not be happening.
Is there someone at Modzilla / Thunderbird / Lightening that we can pay to put this functionality which was clearly there in the past back, so we can ALL have 23 days of our life back every year? :))))))))))))))
This functionality is clearly needed to be enabled again.
