My wife and I have been doing something like this for years. We each have our own separate Google accounts (separate contacts, Gmail, etc.) We've also done this with our calendars: We each have our own default Google Calendar and have shared read-access to the other. We've also created several shared calendars (Household, Local Events, plus a calendar ...

"Alert" will cause a new window with the event details (or a list of events with their info, if more than one) to pop up on top of the active one and take focus when the reminder occurs. It also puts a notification icon in your status bar tray. The "status bar notification" setting causes the status bar icon to appear but doesn't automatically bring up the ...

Yes you can, you will need to create a different "calendar" (probably "tag" would be a better name, but that's Google's terms for it). Creating a Calendar (do this from the Desktop, I didn't found a way to do it from Android's Calendar app; do anyone know?): Go to http://www.google.com/calendar. Look for the "My calendars" box on the left, click on "Add" ...

I had similar problem. I had to clear calendar cache - than re-sync worked for me. The cache clear method is very similar like in this answer, but I clear the official Calendar storage: Go to Settings -> Applications -> Manage applications. In the top of the screen select All. Scrool down to Calendar Storage, then open it, tap to Clear cache button. ...

Yes you can add the eMail adress from your GApps account via Settings > Accounts & Synchronisation > Add Account Then enter your credentials and you can access your accounts eMail, contacts and calendar without automatically sharing information from your private calendar with your colleagues. But you need to watch out which account you use creating ...

If you go into the Calendar app and press the Menu button, then select Settings you should see an options at the top for Calendars this should show all of the individual calendars on your device that are being merged together into the Calendar displayed. The top one is probably My Calendar then below that should be an entry for your GMail calendar, then ...

The ideal solution would probably be to try setting up a calendar on one account and then sharing it with the other account from the Google Calendar website. I know this works with things like my office's apps accounts because I can see our shared calendars on my phone, but I'm not positive if it will work with a personal Google account (I'd imagine it ...

My personal solution would be to use Widgetlocker and put a widget on the lockscreen, such as the built-in ICS calendar widget. But that's just me :)

Go to Settings -> Accounts and sync: Ensure Auto-sync is checked. Check the relevant accounts to see if sync is enabled for them (click the account and see what's checked off).

Try clearing the calendar's cache (Settings -> Applications -> Manage applications, choose the application, then Clear Data) and then re-sync (how to do that depends on the app).

All you need is an Android with Google Calendar and two Google accounts for you and your wife (if you don't have those already). The Google Calendar supports sharing of calendars. You can create an calendar that you both can edit and that will show up on both of your phones.

Llama will let you do this, and it is free (Tasker costs money). It has many of the features as Tasker and Locale, and it can even use Locale plugins. I have grown fond of this app and have set up many automated events. To do this in Llama, you create two events and two profiles. Profiles Create a new profile and name it something like "No ...

EDIT: To only sync the calendar you first have to switch off everything else: Go to Settings -> Accounts -> YOUR Google Account and un-check all the sync targets you don't want (Chrome, GMail, Drive, Contacts, ...) /EDIT Then you can take care of when to have it sync. Generally, this is left to 3rd party apps. You can always pick your favourite 3rd-party ...

CyanogenMod 10 includes an outdated Google Calendar app. When I installed the updated one from the Play Store, I neglected to remove the system Calendar app. Once I uninstalled the outdated system Calendar app, I only got 1 notification per event.

Assuming your end goal is just to get the app to shut up (i.e. not get double calendar notifications for all events), all you have to do is disable the alerts and notifications from within the app itself. Go into the App Press the menu button Choose Settings Scroll to the bottom Change Set alerts & notifications to off For good measure, I also ...

Is this still a problem? I see birthdays from contacts in Calendar. I add birthdays to my contacts in Gmail, and I subscribed to the "Contacts' birthdays and events" in Google Calendar: Under "Other calendars" Add > Browse Select "Interesting Calendars" Select "Contacts' birthdays and events" This gives me a calendar in Google Calendar with my contact's ...

There is an app called Holiday Alarm Disabler. I haven't tried it myself, but it has a pretty good rating at Androlib. QR Code for Holiday Alarm Disabler:

Another possible cause: is your phone's memory full? If your phone is low on free memory, it will not sync any new data to it. You'll have to uninstall some apps or move them to the SD card to resolve this.

Just turn off sync in Settings -> Accounts and sync. You can specifically turn off Calendar syncing for a particular account in that menu, as well.

Within the calendar app's menu, see if the newly added calendar shows up in My Calendars. Select and sync your account. If it doesn't or you have problems, clear the data cache from within Android's main settings > Applications section and resync.

I recall having this issue with some calendar not showing up. If I remember correctly it had to do with having some calendar disabled/hidden in google calendar at the time of the first sync; the calendar app would then not bother looking for other calendars. Try going in Settings > Accounts and Sync > Auto-sync and uncheck it. Go to google calendar on the ...

I can confirm that this is normal behaviour for the default (blue) Google Calendar on the Nexus 4 - just the 1 app. Having tried a few tests of my own... The multiple "roll-up" events appear to be events for which you have already received a notification, but have not explicitly acknowledged or "dismissed" it - in which case the notification remains in ...

This was reported in the Android Central forum here with a link to LifeHacker. It sounds like it will allow you to sync your Facbook calendar without the birthdays because you're exporting the events directly from Facebook. First, you may want to undo the sync that you have going on now. Hope it helps. Quoting the post from Android Central: just go to ...

This is apparently not possible on a Motorola Droid with Android 2.1. FroYo is slated to release next week. Maybe it will also change the ability to set this value. (If it does I'll change this answer.) Sadly, this is still not possible with Android 2.2 either.

WidgetLocker is a great lock-screen replacement that will allow you to put any widget installed on your phone on the lock-screen. You can also configure it to allow your Notification bar to be usable. The actual calendar popup I'm not sure about, but I know you'd be able to see it when it shows up in your notification bar, and from there you can open it up ...

It depends on how you are managing your contacts and calendar on your Linux system. If you are using Evolution, Sunbird, Thunderbird, Lightening, Kontact or Yahoo then MemoToo will get the job done.

Using stock Calendar apps, you can Press "Menu Button" > Tap "More" > Tap "Settings" > Tap "Set Alerts & Notifications" to set the phone to ring for each reminder you've set for each events. EDIT: The stock calendar icon: press "Menu", then tap on "More": tap "Settings: tap "Set alerts & notifications": tap on "Alert": This ...

You can try using iCal Import/Export. It looks like it should be able to export your calendar data. It will allow you to export your calendar(s) to iCal files. I haven't actually tried the application, so I am not sure if it uses the local calendar database on the device, or it it attempts to connect directly to google calendar.

Open up main SETTINGS > APPLICATIONS > MANAGE APPLICATIONS Press MENU > FILTER > ALL Search for Calendar and Calendar Storage. Clear Data for both and then return to the Calendar App. Choose the Calendar(s) you want from the options within the calendar app (if you have more than the default calendar you wish to sync) and then sync.

I got it to work now. The problem was that calendar sync appearently wasn't supported by Funambol Android client v9.0.1 (which is not the latest version, whatever their download page says) the most recent version v10.0.3 has a bug that prevents a calendar from being created if none exists on Android v2.3 and above. You can either wait for the next ...
