Monday calendar widget - creating new items vs accessing existing items

The monday calendar widget is a bit clumsy for people to use

We would like the items shown in the calendar to only be editable - however if you don’t click directly on the item, you will then be prompted to create a new item - for fixed monthly recurring items, we don’t want this to be an option - we have prevented the creation of items for non-owners, however some people do not realise they can’t create items and continue filling in the ‘item card’ for the calendar view.

If you click in the calendar date box, you create a new item
If you click on the item in the date box, you go to edit the existing item
If you want to find an existing item, you have to click the +123 and then find the item
The boxes are small, and it’s easy to accidentally create items if you click just next to the existing item
