New version of TB and again event colors are gone.

I used the patch Todd gave me in the previous topic with the same name, archived. It worked after again half an hour of useless work.

When will TB include this in standard coding?

Something changed at some point in time with the calendar file. When I started using Thunderbird I was able to set up entries in the calendar file and give them names and an associated colour. I can't seem to do that any longer. Eg. I set up entries for Birthdays which showed on the calendar as purple and Anniversaries where green. I can't do that anymore. Was that ability removed at some time?

Another situation I came across was importing .ics files. The method changed and now you have to open a file. What it does is ask where you want to put the contents, ie as an Event or a Task. I tell it where I want it put . But when I check the entry it shows as the .ics file and not as an Event or Task. Then I have a terrible time trying to remove it. Nothing happens when I tell the program that the Event/Task is completed. HELP!

When typing up event comments, in Calendar, the spellchecker highlights incorrect spellings but does not offer alternatives when the word is right-clicked, as the email composer does. This has become rather annoying and one other user asked the same question in November 2023, but never got a response. That particular thread has been archived, so I can't add to it. Can the developers please look into this?

Hi lads,

I used TB for many years but only now started using it in office. I have a problem with the calendar function however which I have to use now. I'd like to have an audio alert and/or window pop-up forcing interaction for any event in my calendar, let's say 15 min ahead. I tend to overlook the small notification pop-ups in the bottom right corner of the screen since they also vanish automatically after a few seconds.

I can get these small bottom right corner pop-ups to appear for any event by using the global notification preferences in the Edit Calender options. However, I can not globally activate an audio alert or a window requiring interaction for upcoming events. I can just activate a reminder manually for each and every event, which is a lot of work, naturally. So, is there a way to activate a reminder (not a notification, which is the bottom right pop up I assume) globally for any event in a calendar?

Can also be done by an add-on or by manually changing source files, if anyone has suggestions in this direction.

Thanks in advance, trashmaster

Hi,

I would like to know if it is possible to have a calendar feature that's like Apple's Calendar and like Google's Calendar where I can drop files into the date I create or will edit. I would like it to also have an unlimited attachments list where I can drop as many as I can. Also if I can drop off files or have the destination open on my drive/pc?

Best,

Kevin

OS: Windows 11 Pro (23H2) Tb Version: 115.9.0 (64-Bit)

This is more a design question. With the Supernove release you moved the search bar and action icon into the top of the window. So on the email and calendar tab all the buttons are now on the very top next to search bar.

I configured to create new appointments in a new tab, not an extra window. But in this appointment tab the action buttons are in a seperate action bar below the tabs for email and calendar and not next to the search bar on top like I would have expected it according to the new design. I added screenshot to describe better what I mean. Is it planned to move the action buttons to the top for the new apointment tab?`

In general it is a bit annoying that the height of the toolbar on top varies. Like if there are buttons and you choose "show text below symbols" for it the toolbar is higher, of course. But then if you have a tab without symbols, e.g. the settings-tab or the new appointment tab, the height of the toolbar reduces. It would be great if this could be standardized.

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.

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

Syncing Thunderbird Calendars between various devices

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.
