Vanishing Calendar Entries

Post by Jaffacaique » Wed Dec 15, 2010 10:01 am

Hi Dan

I am currently using portable VueMinder (purchased and registered) and have noticed an annoying problem. I have recently added several dates on to my calendar, then after about a minute they have literally vanished from the screen. One way of getting them to come back is by restoring them using the restore data option from the menu, although this restores the missing entries they still vanish off the screen again within aprox 1 minute.

The same problem happens at home and at work, I have even tried copying the whole calendar program from the memory stick to the desktop and using it from the desktop but the same problem keeps happening... Memory stick, home and work pc are all virus free.

Any help would be appreciated,

Hi Jaffacaique, one thing that could cause this would be if you added events to a subscribed calendar. When the subscription updates, the local calendar is modified to match (exactly) the remote calendar. Could you try creating a new (non-subscribed) calendar, add some events to it, and let me know if you still see this behavior?

I have the same problem.
added 3 calendars from google. One disappears all the time.
It is my birthday calendar. Not all birthdays disappears, only a few. :shock:
I can see them in VueMinder a moment before some of them disappearing again.

-------edit--------
I tryed "subscribe to the Google Calendar ICS feed, instead of syncing directly"
It seems to work

This might be caused by having Google Lab items enabled in Google Calendar. Please try disabling any Google Lab items to see if that fixes it.

The next version will contain a number of corrections to Google Calendar syncing, so if disabling Google Labs doesn't help, a temporary workaround would be to subscribe to the ICS feed instead of adding the Google Calendar via the "Add Google Calendar" command.

It is weird it syncs 5 of 6 things in my calendar. Why not all 6?
I don't use Labs in my cooglecalendar.

I'm not sure why the 6th event isn't syncing. It's possible this has been fixed for version 8.0, since a number of other Google Calendar sync corrections were made, which might be related.

There's a beta available here, if you'd like to try it.

No, not the 6th calendar, But it shows 5 out of 6 things from the same calendar.
For example birthdays. Dates 1,2,3,4,5,6
All shows in google, But in VueMinder only 1,2,3,4,5. Not the 6

---------
If I try the beta, will I lose everything in my VueMinder, of will it be overwritten?
I have the 7.4.3 Pro at the moment. (Trial)

Thanks! :)
