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 for ...

Apparently, Google Now uses the "My Calendars" section of Google Calendars. When my wife's calendar was shared with me, I was granted "Make changes AND manage sharing" rights. This puts the calendar into "My Calendars" for both users' calendars. When I changed it to "Make Changes to events" on my wife's sharing tab, the calendar moves from "My ...

Here are some options you can try: Remove your Google account and adding it back. Source Clear app data via Settings > Application manager > Calendar Storage > Clear data. Source. UPDATE 2013-05-15: This worked for l0b0

Take a look at "Notifications" part of Google Calendar Help page. It has full details about notification setting in all devices like Android, iOS and Computer. Open the Google Calendar app. In the top left, go to the main menu (touch on 3 horizontal lines). Choose "Settings" at the bottom. Select "General". To change or turn off the sound, touch "Tone", and ...

I had read about this in Google forums I think but can't locate. However here is an article that explains the difference. More details in the article Google explains that the difference between Events and Reminders is that the former is deleted irrespective of whether the event was attended or not. Reminders on the other hand shows up in Calendar until ...

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 might,...

Calendar Snooze can repeat reminders until you acknowledge them, forever. It works with the default Calendar app, and will let it keep syncing with google. You can customize how often the notification repeats, how many times (including "Keep Repeating"), and you can customize two sets of reminders, for example repeating every minute for 5 minutes, and then ...

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 encountered this problem too when trying to get my Facebook events and shared Calendar events (which were appearing on desktop) to appear on the mobile app. I solved it via the Calendar app's settings: Go to Calendar->Settings Find the email address the shared calendar is associated with Select the shared calendar (if it isn't appearing click 'Show More') ...

As I said in several comments, the Calendar app is the way to interact with your calendar offline. If you're interacting with the calendar via the browser, you need to be connected. The Android browser doesn't support any sort of "plug-in".

Instead of synchronizing her calendar to your phone, try setting her calendar "shared" and then subscribing to it from your own Google Calendar. When you subscribe, I believe you can set it to not pull in the reminders.

I know it's typically frowned upon to answer your own question, but I have. This was a total PEBKAC. I use a different calendar app than the default, so I disabled the pre-installed Samsung calendar in the Application settings in order to stop it appearing in my application list. This is fine and doesn't affect anything, but I apparently got a little trigger ...

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 ...

The Gmail app simply doesn't have that feature. It would be an excellent addition.

Its a bit of inconvenience of how Google calendar uses time zones Here is a brief explanation of how is uses time zones: How Calendar uses time zones When you create an event, you'll see it in your local time zone. It will also show up in the local time zones for anyone you invite, even if they're in a different time zone. Some workarounds: 1. ...

On Ice Cream Sandwich, the search button is in the "..." menu:

Yes, at least for me. All of my events are stored as GMT and the time of the event is displayed based on the time of the device (my location). Now, I don't know what happens if you "specify" the timezone like you mentioned, as I have never done that.

Not sure this if this exactly what you mean but if memory serves from when I ran the stock samsung rom on my SGS2 the Samsung calendar is separate. When you create events you need to select the calendar you want to create them in. Obviously, you should pick the google one rather than the 'my calendar' one. I think you can also set the default calendar ...

Download and install the Google Calendar from the Market. Source.

There are multiple possible solutions to the problem behind your sync issue: Make sure Auto-sync is enabled Press your device's < Home > button, then press < Menu >. Select Settings. Select Accounts & sync. Make sure the checkbox for Auto-sync is checked. Turn sync off and on Press your device's < Home > button, then press < Menu >. ...

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 ...

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 ...

I think the Google Calendar app for Android doesn't support that functionality. From a computer: I open a Google Calendar, for instance this one I click on the button. That calendar gets added to my Google Calendar. From an Android phone: I open a Google Calendar, for instance this one I click on the button. The Google Calendar app opens and displays ...

Usually it's called Calendar. Ask your provider if it still isn't showing on your phone. Alternatively, trying seeing if long-pressing an empty area of your screen and then choosing Widgets - shows the Calendar Widget in the list. I am assuming of course, that you've already set up your Google Account to sync with your device.

Thanks to Doug Plenty for providing the answer to me directly. This is the subject of an Apple patent and over which they are suing HTC (amongst others) who customise Android in a way that the stock OS doesn't dare. See for example http://mashable.com/2011/12/19/apple-patent-victory/

Yes, this will all work as smoothly as you hope. I recently traveled to a different timezone. Before the trip I added a lot of events in my Google calendar with an explicit timezone set (of my destination). Google (and my phone) did the timezone math correctly when I was there. The only caveat is that if you travel somewhere outside of your phone's ...

Google calender works with time zones exactly like you hope it would. All events shift appropriately based on your local time zone without user intervention. I particularly like how on the web you can specify a different time zone for the start and end of an event so you can accurately record the time of an airplane trip.

In your Google Calendar on the web you can set a default notification period for the events you subsequently set up on the web calendar. In the calendar app provided with Gingerbread I don't see any similar default setting but you can set a notification for each event you set up. FYI Google has numerous problems with alarms in Gingerbread. One is that if ...

That calendar app is the default included in AOSP. Carrier and manufacturer customizations frequently replace the AOSP variants in favor of modified versions. This is what's happened with the Galaxy SII updates. Instead of vanilla android you received Touchwiz. If you'd like it on your phone, you can install it from the Play Store or flash a custom rom like ...

It looks like you have to launch the Calendar app, then you can open the Options menu and choose Search. Then you can search your Calendar. If you've got a Search hard key, you should be able to press that as well once you're in the app. Note that on Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich, the Search is going to be in the overflow menu. I looked and there's no ...
