overlapping the events / multiple events same day

I added the module and set up several overlapping events.  When I did this I went to the page and only 1 event would show up.  Each time I click on the link to refresh the page, a different event would be displayed.  Is this module capable of supporting overlapping events, or do all the events have to be different for each time period?

When items overlap for a particular time and day, these are considered as multiple matches. In the module settings, you can specify how multiple matches are displayed. The options are as follows:

 

Random

Last Created (i.e. Added)

First Created

Last Created

Least Viewed by User

Sequential

Time Span

 

The default is Random which will result in the behavior you indicate – each time the page is visited (or refreshed) a one of the matching items (selected randomly) will be shown. If you want to display items matching various time spans on the same day, set the Handle Multiples option to “Time Span”.

 

Thanks for your interest in this module.
