Brainstorm: http://maemo.org/community/brainstor...endar_in_n900/

Sorry for the 'new category', but I don't want to start anything elsewehere without canvassing support. Brainstorm Mods, please edit and correct to what you feel is appropriate.

I've seen a number of people complain that the built-in calendar is feature-weak. Since we have a thread collating all the suggestions for phone use improvement, I thought I'd do the same for calendar.

I'll start with this lot:

-No advanced settings of eg. repeat monthly: day/date?
-What's with the lines showing your events in the monthly view? They don't even show if the event is at morning or evening! Finding an open space for an event/appointment from monthly view is way too slow and frustrating!
-Try to create an event and select that the event is ending next weeks Wednesday ... you'll get the timescroller (or how do you call it?). Now what's the date for that day? Hell, I don't know! I need to cancel the event creation and go see the monthly view to see the date! >
The ones that aggravate me mildly are:

Not being able to set an event fortnightly.

Not being able to change the default setting for calendar alarms so I always have to change it.

Not being able in 'month' view to see whether an event is am/pm/evening.

Is this a brainstorm? A collection of bugs? Please advise.

Hmm I'll add my own stuff as well:

remote calendars(ics subscription, groupdav, caldav)

Hmm for calendar alarms it just sticks to no alarm for me once I've set it there.

a GTD todo style addition to it or as a separate but integrated app.

It sticks on each entry. But I'd like to be able to set 'no alarm' on default and forget about it. I can't find a way - if you have, please share!

I would like to see another view as outlooks daily view (and like the old S60 v1 calendar), so that I can check with a glance where I got free time without having to check the times of appointments in agenda view.

i would like to see additional repeat options for events ... for example not only every day, every week, etc but every 3 or 4 or whatever days, weeks ... (i know it's a completely different OS, but it works on my old nokia 6300)

now i do a workaround with outlook calender and synchronising via PC suite, but that's not that comfortable

I would agree with the following ones as high urgency that need to be sorted asap:
  • No possibility to remove single event from repeated events.
  • What's with the lines showing your events in the monthly view? Try to create an event and select that the event is ending next weeks Wednesday ... you'll get the timescroller (or how do you call it?). Now what's the date for that day? Hell, I don't know! I need to cancel the event creation and go see the monthly view to see the date!
  • Not being able to change the default setting for calendar alarms so I always have to change it.


Ones that I would add to this list is:
  • A new setting where you can choose what view the calender opens up in (either Agenda, Week or Month) as currently it only opens in agenda view
  • When creating a new event you should be-able to select it as 'smart calender' so that childrens birthdays can be added into calender with the birthday cake symbol appearing without having to add the child to your contacts. (see this post i created http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=40084&page=2 which ended up showing an enhancement report in bugzilla

cheers all

One thing that I really find annoying is the fact that I can't create an event to reoccur every other week, or the x monday of the month. Support for this should be really easy.

One cannot create a recurring event that happens two days a week, e.g. Tuesday and Thursday.

Ok, Brainstorm is now started here.
Please add your suggestions there as well as here. Looks like between us we could generate the idea to make a really strong, feature-rich calendar.

Then we just need people to make it happen.
