How does one enable calendars in Thunderbird version 115.8.0? When I click the calendar icon on the left of the page, I get a calendar displayed but it has a message highlighted in yellow that says: "All calendars are currently disabled. Enable an existing calendar or add a new one to create or add events."

I cannot find anything in settings or elsewhere to enable calendars.

TIA

Dear Sir or Madam,

I have come a long way using linux but there is one thing I am missing dearly in Thunderbird Calendar: I want to see the next x days to move around my appointments if needed and to see my future days. On Wednesday I don't need to see the past two days but Monday and Tuesday of the next week, so I can use the time without switching to a month view or move my calendar around.

Is this hard to implement?

Thank you!

Best regards Dejan

Hello,

I run a. Thunderbird v 78.14.0 (64-bit) on a Macbook Pro 13"mid 2012 with Mac OS 10.10.5 (Yosemite) b. Thunderbird v 115.5.1 (64-bit) on a Macbook Pro 15" mid 2012 with macOS 10.15.7 (Catalina)

How do I make happen, that I sync the calendars in both Thunderbirds constantly, i.o.w. instantly (like for example the iMAP emails do)??

I find the option for new calendars: "On the network" ... Which network is here meant??? In the help there is not much info about it. I am not using and will not use Google or any kind of "social media" (!)

Can I use my own homepage host (which has some webspace left) in order to sync? Or for example an online storage like mega.nz ?

Or could the both macs just sync the thunderbird calendars just via WiFi/WLAN directly (AirDrop ?) or via Bluetooth ??

It would be so great if calendar sync would be as easy as the emails do!

Thanks for you advice!

Best wishes, Thomas

Hi Team,

I recently started using THunderbird as an inbox and calendar tool a new business we have started with my team. I have a couple of questions.

1. I have the e-mail app on my android phone, but how can I get thunderbird calendar on it? 2. My other two businesses use google domain and e-mail accounts and my personal calendar is also on google. How can I sync the thunderbird calendar with my google calendar, so that events which I create, receive, accept on one of the calendars (i.e. Thunderbird) will automatically appear on the other (i.e. Google). 3. And is there a way to sync the calendars so that I can edit calendar events from everywhere (regardless of where they have been created)?

Thank you in advance.

Kind Regards, Alex

Hello from New York City!

Is it possible to share a calendar event. When right clicking an event brings up a pop-up menu but a command to share the event does not exist.

Similar calendar event sharing functionality exists in other web based calendar software.

From an avid user on Win11x64 with Thunderbird 115.7.0 (64-bit).

Any clues appreciated. Thank you.

Suggestions would be deeply appreciated.

I use Calendly.com for scheduling my meetings. I'll receive a meeting confirmation email when someone books, and linked from that email is an .ics file I can import to Thunderbird calendar. This all works fine except that meetings imported don't respect the default reminder setting. No reminder is set at all for these meetings - I have to edit each event manually to append the reminder to match what I have saved in the Reminder Defaults section of Settings (15 mins).

Meetings added to my calendar in other ways (i.e. an invitation direct to my inbox) respect and apply the 15min default. This places the blame on Calendly so I looked at the .ics files I'm getting from there and find no TRIGGER reference at all. I imported an unrelated sample .ics file with the TRIGGER explicitly defined and this works, but in the absence of a TRIGGER reference in the Calendly files, my expectation is that the default reminder time would be applied.

Any advice on what may be happening?

Thanks

Specific 'Calendar' topic, but could also be considered to be about updating (improving) the Thunderbird controls/options/addons.

Is this a Feature Request, per say? If so, is it in the right place here? If not, where to put this?

Platform: Windows 10. Issue: Thunderbird (Lightning/Calendar) keeps aggressively stealing focus, i.e. putting the Reminder window on top of whatever else I am doing. This is incredibly annoying and unproductive. The only option is to completely disable Reminders, which defeats the purpose of course. See also, for example, https://www.reddit.com/r/Thunderbird/comments/185c727/how_can_i_prevent_the_reminders_window_from/. Requirement: I would like to still hear the Reminder sound, and it would be great if the application also 'gets highlighted' (in orange) on the Taskbar (like many applications that have something new going on, but do not immediately push themselves to the foreground) to get a visual Notification, as well.

In any case, this overly dominant behaviour of the application should NOT persist.

Thunderbird 115.6.0 (64-Bit) is no longer syncing with Google Calendar.

I do not know since when, but recently added dates in Google Calendar are not show in Thunderbird calendar and vice versa. 

I've tried to setup new connection between Thunderbird and Google, this seems to work, because I got question on smartphone (authenticator app) to allow new connection. But the dates are still not synced. Even forcing sync does not do anything. Same things happens on two Windows 10 64bit computers, but also on Linux Mint. Any advice? Thanks.

if I schedule a meeting locally for 9am some attendees receive the meeting scheduled at 8am (1 hour earlier than actual). I have checked my thunderbird date and time settings and they are correct. The attendees claim their settings are correct but between the 2 systems (Thunderbird and Outlook) there is an hour discrepancy. This is causing clients to miss my meetings. Please assist.
