How to save invites directly to Google Calendar profile?

HI,

I have a Gmail account that I use to make sure I can see my meetings from anywhere. The Home (default) calendar is useless if I am not at my desk.

My Setup:

  • TB 91.3.2
  • Using integrated Google calendar (not Lightning extension)
  • I have 5 calendars
 * Home (default)
 * Business Gmail calendar
 * Personal Gmail calendar
 * Client 1 calendar (read-only)
 * Client 2 calendar (read-only)
  • I have multiple accounts
 * My default business account
 * My Gmail business account
 * My Gmail personal account

My desire: When I get an invite to my default business account, I would like to add the Gmail business calendar.

What I do now: When I get a new invite, I accept it into the Home calendar, then I make a copy and store it in the Google Business calendar. It gets messy very quickly...

Today, I received an invite, and when I accepted it, TB asked whether I wanted to import it in my Home calendar, Client 1 calendar (!) or Client 2 calendar (!!). I don't have the rights to update those calendars... but I do have the right to update my Google calendars.

How to I get TB to use my Gmail calendars when accepting meeting invites? Ideally, I would like to delete the Home calendar completely since it really serves no purpose other than being a placeholder because I can't save directly to my Google calendar.

Thanks,

L

I use a Google Calendar that Synchs with the calendar on my work account in Thunderbird Calendar. When I receive invites for recurring events on my Thunderbird email account, I find it is impossible to delete them. A whole list of past events remain open and keep disturbing me when they get activated as a new calendar event occurs or open up when I am typing a message and need to be minimized. A big nuisance. Can someone please help me with deleting these past event reminders that dont seem to go away. I have attached a screenshot that show three recurring meeting reminders for Nov 1,8 and 15 still remain on my calendar. A big Thank You Milind

When using my calendar and misspelling a word a red line indicates that I misspelled the word but doesn't give a suggestion as to the correct way to spell it. I tried going into preferences to make sure the spell check was on, which it was, so it isn't the problem. I even went into add on to use a different dictionary which didn't help. I'm using the english dictionary and tried the english/canadian one. Any ideas as to what to do to solve the problem? I might add that the spell checker is working while I'm typing you this message. I have version the updated version which is 91.3.2 (32-bit)Looking forward to hearing from you. Dan Caputa

Hello, I have Thunderbird v 91.3.0 installed on Windows 11. When trying to import into a calendar from an .ics file the "Import Calendar Events and Tasks pop-up comes up with a "Loading items..." message and nothing else ever happen. The window is never populated. Hitting the "Import All" button result in the window closing. No import happens.

When trying to import from a .cvs file, the pop-up is populated with - what looks like - all events, but when "Import All" is selected, nothing is imported into the calendar.

Bug or am I missing something?

Thank You, Reed

After the recent update, my google calendar appears to be locked out, I can see appointments but they are all listed as just "Busy" rather than the actual appointment details and I can't add any new ones via thunderbird. I've tried unlocking it, unsubscribing and re-subscribing again but nothing seems to change it. It was working fine before and worked really well as it synched my calendar between gmail, my desktop and all my apple iPhone etc Thanks

I use the calendar to keep track of business and private appointments. Not only do I set up these appointments for my own calendar, but often, I add other invitees. The email addresses of the invitees exist in my address book. Sometimes, I have to type in the email address manually. Others work fine.

Today, I realized what the reasons might be: when editing the invitees, the first line shows your own email address. Add a 2nd person (which is in your address book), and Thunderbird will auto-complete the 2nd person's email address.

Now add a 3rd person (which is also in your address book). Observe that this time, the email will not be auto-completed by the existing entry in the address book.

Since v.91, I've had a calendar entry that was originally in Google Calendar, attached via the Provider for Google Calendar, that has been deleted EVERYWHERE but constantly pops up a notification that it was changed on the server, and offers a 'delete anyway' button (warning that it might affect the server) and a 'discard my changes and reload' button. NEITHER WORKS. The event is long gone from the calendar at Google, and it doesn't appear in the calendar in Thunderbird that is connected to Google, but the notice keeps popping up and blocks all other use until I click "delete anyway." Clicking "discard and reload" immediately re-presents the notice.

No other writable calendar exists.

Is this a case where I need to save/back up my mail data and ONLY my mail data, uninstall Thunderbird with extreme prejudice, and start over from scratch? If so, that's a serious failure of v.91. Or do I need to delete EVERYTHING (since I'm using IMAP the cache should eventually reload) and start over?

Hi Folks,

Prior to this latest Tbird update, using anybody's Dark Theme did not cause the calendar date numbers to become a black lettering with a dark grey environment. In short, you can barely read the numerical digits (see attached picture below). The previous Tbird version had white digits with the dark grey background which is perfect.

Any quick and dirty fix for this?

A recent update completely trashed my calendars. Fortunately they were synced on google, so I can still access them, but I would like to get them back on TB so that I get reminders on my desktop.

But I can't.

Athough the calendars are empty, TB remembers their names and lists them all as disabled. When I tyry to enable and sync them with TbSync, I get an error message which, unhelpfully, I am unable to copy and paste here.

Have tried deleting the entire contents of the calendar-data folder so the TB will be forced to rebuild files, but it still remembers the calendar names.

Basically, I have no calendar data to lose as it is all stored on google, so I just want to clear all calendars on TB so that I can import from google and start again.

Any tips much appreciate.

Hi, I have previously posted a question on this issue. But no feedback yet probably because my unclear question. The problem is importing a .ics into the newest Thunderbird (92.2.1). I have attached a picture of a test .ics file and loading hangs when I try to import it. If I delete the task entry ("todo" entry) the import works fine. Import is only a problem on my Windows 10 pc's, not on my Linux/debian pc's.

Hi. I'm helping organize a group of private citizens; we're not a corporation. We're setting up a workspace on the Slack platform to enable communication, file sharing, etc. That platform has essentially two ready-made calendar plug-ins, but neither suits our needs. We're looking for an alternative to use within this application. Some people use it on their desktops, and some on their smartphones. We'd like to provide one that the entire team (one day as many as 200 users) may view for the big picture, pull up event details, and add events to.

Is Lightning a possibility for us?

My version of Thunderbird was recently automatically updated to version 91.2.0. Event titles no longer wrap within individual event boxes in the "Week" version of the calendar display as they did in previous versions in the default calendar-display settings. Instead, they are truncated to the width of the event box, and everything beyond the first few words is replaced by an ellipsis ("..."). How does one enable word wrap in this version of Thunderbird? This program is not terribly useful to me unless it can provide my with a snapshot of my weekly schedule at a glance, and the scant few characters that appear before the ellipsis are seldom sufficient to provide a good description of the event.

I am trying to limit the calendar to print only one month. In the past, you entered the actual days you want to print so I would enter the first and then the 31st (or 30th, 29th or 28th). Now, you just select the month, so it also prints the tasks/events for the last few days of the previous month and the first days of the following month. Is there a way to limit it to printing events for one month only?

Hi, I see that there is now (Thunderbird 91) spellchecking in the description field of events. However I could not find to any way to change the used language within the event editor (as it can be done when writing emails). It seems it is always using the default language from the options. That's not very practical when switching languages frequently...

Best regards
