During 2013 the behaviour of Google accounts using ActiveSync/Exchange has changed - some shared and additional calendars disappear.
The GDR2/Amber update for Windows Phone 8 adds support for CardDAV and CalDAV which should fix this issue. To verify it's working...
Go to Settings > Email+Accounts
Tap on your Google account to see its settings
Looks like the answer is no longer "the answer" since this method is not possible. But I found a solution.
Add Google account in you phone and make sure that you main calendar appeared in the app.
Go to you Computer to the next steps.
Close all browser tabs you have.
Change the User Agent to iPad.**
Make sure above steps works***
The built in calendar has the ability to set reminders for appointments with sound notifications (that's what I use on my Lumia 920).
Just do the following:
Open the calendar
Hit the "+" button
Enter your details, then scroll down and hit "More details"
Then set the "Reminder" to whenever you'd like to be reminded.
In order to make sure your phone is set ...
Those texts are there to show to you in witch days you have appointments but they are not made to you really read them.
Since there isn't much space in those blocks they used those texts instead of a bar or dots to mark the day.
I had asked a long time ago the official Twitter support account but can't find it now. So I asked again and they pointed ...
Edit: Microsoft has re-branded the Calendar UI. I have modified instructions below (without updating the screenshots).
The good news is yes, you can disable notification for birthday reminders that are coming from Facebook.
You cannot do this from within the calendar app but you can do it by using your Windows Live Calendar. The steps:
Log on to calendar....
After spending quite some time on it, I have found the solution to your question.
It involves dealing with external calendars (Outlook, Facebook) on their respective websites.
First of all, on where the birthdays are stored: when you connect to Facebook on your phone, Outlook automatically imports all the birthdays into its calendar. You can view and edit ...
Outlook on Windows 10 mobile is a lot similar to the new Outlook app on other platforms.
As you can see in the suggestion section on the Outlook for Android, this feature does'nt exists on Android. It is probably the same thing on Windows 10 mobile for the moment.
Alternatively you could use Wunderlist (https://www.wunderlist.com/) which is cross-platform, ...
A feature called "Quiet Hours" has been introduced into the core operating system with the 8.1 update. You can trigger quiet hours manually, or automatically with a preset time (e.g. via a calendar event). A cool feature related to quiet hours is the concept of an "Inner Circle". This is a group of contacts, e.g. your significant other, who may contact you ...
If you have upgraded to the new outlook.com layout;
Go to your online outlook calendar (live.com/hotmail.com/outlook.com) via select Calendar > Birthday Calendar (do not uncheck it click on the title) > Under "Reminders" remove anything you do not want. I removed them all.
This way you could still get email reminders if you want them and just not the ...
The first day of the week setting isn't in Windows Phone 8 anymore (Why, I don't know...). It's on the users' feature suggestions in the WP website, here.
It seems that on WP8 the first day is automatically set, depending on the Country/Region set in Language and Region.
To know which is the first day of the week on your phone, open the Calendar and choose ...
I'm pretty sure that this is not currently possible with the built-in calendar application.
I am unaffiliated with this app, but Calendar[+] appears to have a similar function as well as Chronos Calendar. I just installed this app on my phone, and it does exactly what you described.
Here's a screenshot of how Calendar[+] looks:
Here's a screenshot of how ...
I am a developer that creates apps for Windows Phone. I also create an app "Week View" that's provides a weekly view of appointments as the name suggests.
Please let me explain, how calendar apps for Windows Phone work.
Do "all" calendar apps on a phone share a common underlying calendar datastore provided by the phone?
No. The "calendar store" is in ...
Found this thread a little late and not sure if this will help, but....
After 2 hours of trial and error I managed to remove the rouge calendars from Lumia 930 phone.
Logged into Microsoft Outlook Exchange.
Accessed Folder view
Permanently deleted calendars from trash (for some reason the calendars did not show in the trash while in Mail view)
Next on ...
All of your contacts and calendar reminders seem to be available online, right? Then I would agree with the MS Tech support to go ahead and do a hard reset. This usually does solve a lot of issues related to the W10 update.
The feature you describe would be covered by "Google Sync" (their name for Exchange ActiveSync), which remains available to set up new Windows Phones with, until 31 July 2013 - it will also be available to set up new devices with after that date if you are a Google Apps for Business, Education, and Government customer.
I am on WP 7, but this should be only incidental. If it is an option, you could synchronise your contacts to your LIVE account and create an outlook.com-Account (you don't have to use it for e-mail). There you should get an birthday-calendar for your contacts automatically. It should also sync with your contacts, whenever you edit or add a new contact.
I don't think there's any way to set up one-way read-only sync directly in Windows Phone.
However, you should be able to achieve what you want by having everyone in your group subscribe to the Google calendar in Outlook.com. Follow these steps:
In Google Calendar, click on the arrow next to your calendar and select "Calendar settings".
Next to "Private ...
I was not able to find it either. I did find a relatively cheap alternative. It is an app called 2day. It links with outlook.com and office365 (not sure the difference). I chose outlook.com and so far so good. It has a 30 day free trial. The paid version is like $3 or $4 dollars.
This is a bug with the calendar app on Windows 10 Mobile. Events created 6 months in advance will not show up. This problem isn't restricted to certain phones or Google calendars. There is an issue submitted in the Windows Feedback app for this problem, which you can vote on.
As of today I could not get any of the posted solutions to work, it might have to do with the fact that I've got a Google apps account.
The procedure that worked for me was simply to go through the iPhone guide provided by google, and end up at https://www.google.com/calendar/syncselect and choose the calendars I wanted to sync!
Here it is possible to ...
Hit F12 to see developer view
Click on the little gear on the lower right hand corner of the screen
Under Settings: Click check box next to User Agent and choose IPad IOS 5
I managed to do it on outlook.com, click on calendar the top right filter option uncheck the birthday calendar. The issue was it still showed all birthdays on my phone. To stop this I had to remove all hotmail/outlook.com reminders which is annoying.
im trying to work out how to disconnect hotmail and facebook as i think that should solve it.
No. At the moment its not possible to select what to show or not to show, of upcoming meetings on the live tile. You can however, choose to turn it off.
On the live tile you can make a small tile so it wont show upcoming meetings, or you can go to settings, scroll all the way down and choose: Show on calender.
To hide from lockscreen go settings -> ...
This is indeed possible. I added my own CalDAV and CardDAV servers this way:
Add a new Google account and enter some random account data. The login should fail.
Reboot your phone (this is important!)
Select the just added Google account and change the default IMAP, CalDAV and CardDAV settings to your own ones (those from Yahoo).
Save, activate and sync.
There is no week view in the native calendar app.
A week view will be implemented in Windows Phone 8.1 and until you recieve that update you can download third-party calendar apps from the Windows Phone Store.
