This doesn't set anything as a "Default" This is simply how to turn on an "All Day Event", and you have to do it for every-single appointment. What we want to do is set EVERY appointment to an "All Day Event" WITHOUT having to check the box, or better yet, create an appointment without a specific time. If I've got 5 jobs coming up in 2 weeks time, I don't want to have to schedule them in any specific order
