@eggert Sorry, only now saw this. Sounds like what Google Calendar does/allows. At least that would allow one to simply dismiss a heads-up, day early notification, and possibly be prepared for another reminder closer in. That might make it less painful than the present case. Thanks, I'll give it a try.
@proftumbleweed Theoretically capitals in your name should make no difference, but email addresses are always lowercase. There can never be another PrOfTUMBlewEeD account, all the variations are proftumbleweed to the Vivaldi server. I know this issue with capitals has been raised before, don’t know exactly whether something has been done about it.
Take a look at the Google calendar section. This will sync Google calendar server with all your Vivaldi desktop browser instances.
It looks like Vivaldi Calendar displays an event from my own Google calendar, but also from the calendars that are shared with me, and that get my events. Thus, like Hexshy's issue, duplicating (tri-/quadro-...) the events.
It is not only for recurrent events.
As long as this issue occurs, my Vivaldi Calendar is too cluttered, and I won't be able to use it.
It's a pity, as I want to get rid of my other calendar tools.
I was wondering how high on the bug-list this is, as it happens already since Vivaldi could import Google calendars
Thanks for looking into the issue.
@arnar Thank you so much for the quick reply! I'll forward the information on to our internal security team. I'm really loving Vivaldi's calendar for my personal use. Massive thanks to the Vivaldi team for building a better browser 🙂
@durhammer Due to some complications with different data sets from event to task and back we decided to make that a one way operation. This is to some extent a destructive operation and not at all clear in the UI so a user can easily do it intentionally or not as you point out and lose some work.
We have to improve this in some way, thanks for reporting this.
@luetage said in How is the current 'week number' determined?:
Shouldn’t the week numbering be a part of it? This would solve this cleanly and it doesn’t make much sense that the start of the week would be changed to ISO, while the week number belongs to another system.
Getting the info from the OS would make a lot of sense. Unfortunately as far as we could tell, at least for some OS-es, it does not return any info on how the week number is calculated, and in true standards fashion there are multiple incompatible rules for that. And I spent a while trying to figure out how it should work f.ex. for US and could not find a solid answer.
But we need to handle this better. For now, as a quick mitigation, we will probably add a setting allowing the user to explicitly select using ISO week numbering. Then there will at least be something concrete that the users can discover on their own.
Following up on my own post: I just realized that this can be achieved by setting "Events Layout" to "Minimal" in the Calendar settings. Sorry for raising an issue... should have looked around more ....
@infin ha shoot sorry I hadn't seen you were posting in the calendar section., POP3 and IMAP are mail protocols. Anyway, let's talk about calendars.
Check this Microsoft support post on how to publish your calendar (second from last section), which gives you a url, which you can import as a "web calendar"... anyone with that link will be able to get those calendar details
I'm not sure if I should be happy or not. Today, I decided to do a little bit of debug and I realized everything works as it should. So I'm sorry, if there was something wrong with Vivaldi, we're not going to find it probably. Anyway, if you still would like to have an account, I'll make one for you (but it's pointles I believe).
Thank you for your time.
@vivaldimh your observation might allow reproducing the problem. Please file a bug report ideally with enough info that it's easy for the devs to make a test case. Not sure how private the info is and if you can share Screenshots or ics files...
