When will you improve/fix calendar features?
Question asked by Jaime Alvarez - 9/5/2022 at 3:20 PM
Smartermail Calendar has lagged behind a lot in terms of features and usability. Is there any roadmap to make it more user friendly and better implemented?

a) When creating an appointment in the Smartermail calendar syncd into phone (dont know if its the same in android), there is no way to add Attendees.  Once again, for my gmail calendar, icloud calendar, etc., the option is activated in iphone, for the smartermail calendar it disappears.
b) When trying to reschedule an event that is part of a "Series", it can't be done on the web based calendar in Smartermail.  It only gives options to "Delete this event" or "Delete the series".  I have to go to my desktop app where my calendar is syncd into, to change this particular event (not the series) and voilá, it works... why can't i do it from smartermail web cal?
c) On the same "Series" issue. There is no way to drag and drop appointments from one day/hour to another, if the event or appointment is part of a Series.  This should be done easily and ask... "Do you want to change only this event or all the series"?

There are  more examples, but these are a few of things that we would like to see improved, solved, fixed soon in the Smartermail Calendar.

Hi Jorge,

Thanks for your feedback about the calendars.

On the iPhone, I have noticed that if you select any secondary calendars to create your appointment on the Invitees field does disappear. But if you have your default SmarterMail calendar selected you should still see it and be able to add attendees. I tested this with an Exchange account as well, on both an iPad and iPhone, and see the same behavior. That leads me to believe this is iOS behavior. 

As for editing a single occurrence in a series, you should see some changes for this coming soon.

Thanks Emily... the behavior that you describe does not happen to me.  I have tested it in several iphones (and many clients have reported the same thing) and even when the default smartermail calendar is selected I cant add any attendees.  
If I switch to other accounts, (gmail, icloud), the field appears immediately.  
I am assuming it might have to do with other things... maybe that my calendar is shared... or maybe that I have multiple calendars in my iphone as mentioned, not only SM calendars, but gmail, icloud?  I dont know... but the fact is that I cant add any attendees with the default sm calendar.

Is this fixed in the new Smartermail release?
