Recurring events don't use the selected starting date from the scheduling grid
I'm not sure if this is a bug or intentional, but it seems counterintuitive to me that if I've selected a date (or a week) on the scheduling grid and go to enter a new event that's recurring, the starting date of that recurrence should be the date I've selected, and not whatever today's date is. If I've intentionally hunted down a room during a particular date, it's so I can verify its availability, and thus schedule the event during that day/time.
See screenshot below of the date selected in the grid (highlighted, upper left) and the starting recurrence date initiated by the event creation (highlighted, center). And this happens regardless of using the daily or weekly view and it's just weird.
