Mostly changing the statement from singular to plural to imply that more than one timestamp can be in a TODO item (SCHEDULED, DEADLINE, multiple plain timestamps) w/o directly mentioning how (leave that for later examples in the chapter). >> ** Timestamps >> :PROPERTIES: >> :DESCRIPTION: Assigning a time to a tree entry. >> :END: >> +#+cindex: timestamps >> +#+cindex: ranges, time >> +#+cindex: deadlines >> +#+cindex: scheduling > > We do not need cindex and other index keywords in org-guide.

In testing, I found the following: * TODO summer school <2023-06-05 Mon 10:30-12:15>--<2023-06-08 Thu 10:30-12:15> This shows in my timegrid agenda for the week for Mon, Tue, Wed, & Thu on the specified time range. Interestingly, each agenda item had a "(n/4)" on it (n=1 to 4). Also, if you mark any of the 4 as DONE, then all change to DONE (which you kind of expect for this style). Is this being done by an add-on package? I have these, but most of them are not setup: org-ac-20170401.1307 org-books-20210408.1913 org-brain-20230217.1908 org-contacts-1.1 org-download-20220906.1929 org-edna-1.1.2 org-emms-20230515.1838 org-noter-20230605.323 org-noter-pdftools-20220320.300 org-pdftools-20220320.301 org-ql-20230525.1548 org-super-agenda-20220826.2315 org-vcard-20221111.328 >> - <2006-11-02 Thu 20:00-22:00> >> + <2006-11-02 Thu 10:00-12:00> > > I do not mind, but wondering why you changed the time interval.

I think you're looking at the patch file, so you're not seeing the line before the 'diary' line which has a time of 22:00-23:00 on it. I don't use 'diary-float', so did I misinterpret the example? If so, drop the "and time". The main purpose was to add in "hours" after N. -- David Masterson
