i just ran into the same problem. I created a local calendar with an app and then removed the app before deleting the calendar. I could re-install the app and delete the calendar there. So for you as a developer this means you should probably add this functionality to your app. However if you need a quick fix or if someone else is running into this problem ...

For read only feeds ICSDroid does this. It'll work with facebook's feeds too. DavDroid will do the same for a proper caldav server (syncs in both directions)

The native AOSP calendar app was replaced by Google's own1. It went by the package name com.android.calendar, but is no longer found in either Google Play Store or on F-Droid (you can find its code on Github, though). As for synchronization, that's usually not done by the calendar app itself but by the corresponding sync service; most calendar apps use the "...

YES, you can delete the stock Email (Email.apk) and stock Calendar (Calendar.apk, CalendarProvider.apk) app. For a list of other apps you can delete on CyanogenMod, see the expandable list at the bottom of the CM wiki. I'm not so sure for AOSP though.

If you want to stick with your Google Calendar as backend and frontend, you might wish to check Calendar Event Reminder. You can tell that app which calendars to look at, and to annoy you until you're going crazy. I almost guarantee you cannot miss such a reminder! I've used the app for quite some time, before... I switched to a different calendar frontend: ...

I am replying (I see no one else has) because I have always used the calendar/notifications functionality in the EXACT same way you have, and was also distressed of this change in functionality. I think we are in the minority, though, because your post is the first acknowledgement I have even seen anywhere about this issue. The only solution I have is to ...

I was never able to make any of the "top" calendar widgets, including those recommended here, show my Outlook calendar. They just showed my empty Gmail calendar or Google calendar or whatever. However I eventually discovered, way down at the bottom of the widgets list, that there was already an Outlook widget installed and waiting for me: Putting the ...

Google Calendar could be considered as native android calendar app. You can download it from Google Play. But I personally don't like it. As for device-only calendar - I have never seen an android phone without such a calendar (I'm not familiar with Samsung devices though). Normally you can choose a calendar during creating an event.

The current Google API / OAuth method is not supported by DAVdroid but it's still possible by using the deprecated format: https://www.google.com/calendar/dav/[yourname]@gmail.com/events username password Yet it requires the compromise Allow less secure apps: ON in the Google security settings. However, delegates don't sync. Tested on OnePlus 3t, ...

Since it seems there is no easy free way to to this, I created my own =) Here is the app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.whitebox.calendartoolbox If someone needs to create, delete, or update local calendar, it will do it.

I think what you need to do is subscribe to your calendar in Google Calendar, then have your calendar app sync with this feed--much like you would sync additional calenders like days of the week, etc. Subscribe to public calendars using the calendar address Click the down-arrow next to Other calendars Select Add by URL from the menu Find the address of the ...

You can copy the mp3 file that you'd like (for example a 5-minute song) to the Notifications folder in your Android (at the same level that the Download folder). This can be done as well for ringtones (Ringtones folder) and alarms (Alarms folder). Now, go to calendar Settings, General and change the tone to your mp3 file.

UPDATE: 4 years later, I think Mike's comment is right, and I call on Google/Android to support a way to make a calendar reminder really persistent. I actually used the Calendar Snooze app for a while until it stopped being reliable. So I'm taking this comment back: I initially had the same reaction you did about the change in Calendar behavior. But I ...

No - Individual Apps have to implement and support the different calendars. Internally the Android System kernel really only knows about UNIX Timestamp. If you change the date/time manually without any network, you'll be changing that value. It is up to the Android Framework or third party developers to support the various calendars. From the beginning of ...

There are a few apps that can do this for you, or at least some of these things. One I saw on Lifehacker yesterday is Agent. Agent is a combination automation tool and personal assistant that will silence your phone during meetings, remember where you parked, auto-respond to texts and phone calls while you're driving, and more, all so you don't have to.

Of course Facebook likes so much to break compatibility with whatever it ever developed... so now the method is different: On Web Facebook, choose the event you want to have in the Calendar Set the participation (Going/Maybe) Click the 3-dots menu and choose "Export Event" Ensure that the "Save in calendar" option is selected The link shown below that ...

It's up to the app (developer) to set when the notification is dismissed (automatically when you touch it, or at some other time), so it sounds like the difference here isn't between the two Android versions, but between the calendar app you were using on your old phone, and the one on your new phone. Because it's up to the app, it means you just need to ...

I found a workaround : delay the event in the future for x hours then add a notification x hours before the event. For example, delay the event to tomorrow and add a notification 24 hours before the event. The notification will stay in the notification bar until the event is ended. You can do the same with several days or one week if you want the ...

The app you are looking for is cLock. Its a widget and its still present in CyanogenMod. Unfortunatelly, from Lollipop onwards, you can't put any widgets on your lock screen, and by that you are unable to use the described widget as you used it before. Hovever, you can still place it on your home screen.

You can try to achieve this by automation. I prefer MacroDroid being easy to learn and free I don't have Nougat , so can't test it. I also recall reading that dnd mode is behaviour is different compared to Marshmallow ( and don't remember how), so this may need further tweaking based on your revert The way I understood your need and accordingly configured ...

These are independent of the location. I live in India and see exactly the same images as you posted for those months in question. Very few parts of the country experience snow and definitely not where I live. Wiki on Calendar also didn't mention that these are location based and it appears universal. These images can't be disabled too Only the holiday ...

Google Calendar Help says Invitation status Events on your calendar look different depending on how you’ve responded: If you’re attending an event, the event will be a solid color. If you’ve answered maybe to an event, you’ll see diagonal lines across it. If you haven’t replied yet, you’ll just see the event’s outline. If you said ...

You can do this using the native Exchange app on your device. On my Galaxy S5 using Android 6.0, it's in Settings -> Account -> Accounts -> Microsoft Exchange Active Sync -> then I tap on the specific Outlook account I'm trying to sync. Below is a screenshot of what it looks like on that next page. When I had this exact same problem, I found that "Sync ...

Android devices have local calendar storage database that is opaque and difficult to modify with app-level programmatic. You can, however, clear all local calendar data, which should remove the calendar entries permanently. Any sync'd calendars will repopulate. Settings > Apps & Notifications > See all Apps > (... menu) Show System Navigate to ...

I had the same problem and I did the following: on the mobile devices Settings/Apps/Calendar. Clear Cache and Data. Relaunch Calendar and now when I tap Yes/Maybe/Now Gmail sends the reply automatically, without redirecting me to the mobile browser. Hope this helps.

In Galaxy s4. Go to Calendar Menu Display uncheck "My Calendar", "Samsung Calendar", Samsung Task" select "Done" in right top corner You now have stopped visual of Samsung Calendar. You can add Google or if already added, your Google Calendar will display your events or appointments you set.

The app Mark mentions iCal Import/Export, has been forked and development restarted. The fork is called Calendar Import/Export (ics) and is available on the Play Store and on F-Droid. New features and a cleaner UI have already been implemented. The app is FLOSS and development happens on GitHub, if anyone wishes to contribute.

I found a free app, Calendar Event Reminder, that achieves the requirement at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sk.mildev84.reminder

As you're after a plain Android <-> Windows solution, apart from different hosted solutions, MyPhoneExplorer might also be worth consideration. AFAIK it can sync your Android calender with different Windows solutions, especially Outlook, but IMHO also others. According to its description, this also includes – tada! – even your favorite Windows calendar: ...

Download iCal Import Export 2.2 from the play store and you can backup the calendar on your phone. Move the file to your pc and follow the instructions here: https://support.google.com/calendar/answer/37118?hl=en to upload to your Google calendar online. Or maybe you can just turn sync on? That I don't know. But create the backup first if you try it! Good ...
