Hi, if you add a Google and the vivaldi.net calendar to Vivaldi they are not synced.
You simply get the events from both and you can add events to one or the other.
The red entries are vivaldi.net the green are Google entries.
@eggert said in Bug: Drag // Drop onto Fri Cell - Not:
@janrif Can you share more details
is it a full day event or with time? if it has time, what time of day?
online or local calendar? if online, does it sync on the same time as shown in vivaldi?
which timezone, I assume Eastern US based on your signature.
Bugs with things jumping days tend to relate to timezone issues. I have tested with both negative and positive offsets and can not reproduce this.
@eggert This seems to have straightened itself out. I wonder why these little crinkles occur, then they go away. Maybe I don't test enough or the right way. In any case, sorry to waste your time but appreciate the feedback. Thanks. Have a nice evening.
@eggert Reccurence field contains only "FREQ=WEEKLY;BYDAY=TU" etc. The day changes of course. And concerning the modification causes the duplicity I honestly don't know. Maybe it's the event cancellation, not sure. The most duplicated event is often cancelled or other people are added to the list of attendees etc. Others that are duplicated only few times change much less often. I would guess it's at least connected if not direct cause.
@jasonjauregui This is something that we have not considered. Actually Vivaldi does not send any info on Busy or not so apparently Google will assume busy if it is missing.
I have created a feature request in our issue tracker to add possibility to control this, might take some time for us to be able to address it.
I have not checked but it might be possible to change settings in google calendar to work around this until we add the functionality.
Thank you very much for taking the time to report. It is really appreciated.
@Troejg Just to make sure I understand correctly. Do you have "Preferred Date & Time Format" ( In Settings -> General ) set to "Inherit from Operating System"?
If so and the OS setting is 24H system then there is something weird going on. In that case could you share more info on OS, and Vivaldi version?
@mib2berlin @rosswald It seems I was misunderstanding a bit with our release process and this fix didn't make it into any of our stable builds yet. So for users using the normal stable channel from our main download page then the issue is still there.
Unfortunately there is no simple workaround. One which involves opening up the database and messing with the stored recurrence rule is possible, but I'd not recommend it unless the reminders are totally untolerable.
@SSBeluga Thank you for the reply. I have been able to reproduce this now with your additional info. Will make a ticket so we can hopefully resolve that quickly.
Regarding the time changing, there was a recent regression which caused this and we didn't notice until too late. A fix is already done which I hope will make it into the next release.
Thanks again for the feedback. Much appreciated.
@gmg said in Calendar Funkiness:
So the highlighted today is different when in the Calendar tab vs. the Calendar panel? Which timezone are you in and what time of day are you looking at?
Not sure of your description.. To clarify: I open Calendar (Month View) in a new tab window. But I have the Calendar display set to open Day Only in right pane so in one tab I see both the month calendar & the day calendar. Meanwhile the LEFT panel is still available for Notes, etc. I am in EST; I usually look calendar first thing in the AM.
Will tag @eggert here since he deals with all things Calendar (I'm messing with the mail).
Much appreciated. I will remember for the future.
@TryingNewThings This is a very good suggestion. Our reminders work decently for many cases but there are things to improve especially for when they are set for a long time before. One thing I have personally seen using them recently is that we only show the time of the event, which works fine on the same day but for reminders a day or more into the future showing the date would make sense.
Added a request to our issue tracker for this, VB-95985. Hope I can pick it up soon. Thanks a lot for taking the time to report your issue, it is appreciated. 🙂
@janrif @mib2berlin I am currently working on things related to this problem. That is with things changing in a weird way when editing events/tasks.
There are things that need to change in response to other things changing, f.ex. when you change an event to "All day" we have to add one day to the end time to get the end date in the way users expect. This then is complicated more with our choice to allow the option to change from event to task and back.
So now I am trying to improve our test coverage and make this work more reliably since it has constantly been breaking in some way when something else was fixed.
I hope this work will result in something that is more coherent and consistent. Thanks as always for your testing, reporting and putting up with bugs 🙂
@maxoku said in Calendar: Wrong notifications for all day events:
Notifications returned, but they are for very short time. It's easy to miss them. Sometimes I hear only the sound but not the notification itself. It could appear but it's for so short time that vanishes before I even look.
This should be fixed in the next major version.
@BYVivaldi Great that your problem is solved. Bad that you had to jump through hoops to fix it.
We will continue to try and improve Vivaldi. Thank you very much for taking the time to write and follow up on the problem, much appreciated.
