huge Google Calendar problem!
« on: November 16, 2008, 12:26:37 PM »
Hi,

I love Google Calendar! Or better: I USED to love it, because the 5th of November was the last day I received SMS and email reminders... :( Only popup reminders still work... I waited this long because I hoped the problem would be fixed within several days, but it seems not to be a wide-spread problem - at least I couldn't find any current discussions or news reports about it on the web.

What to do?

I'm not sure. Have you tried contacting Google?

No, and I'm not sure how and where would make most sense anyway. :-[

I'd start here: http://www.google.co...port/calendar/?hl=en

Or specifically this one:

If you've noticed that you're no longer receiving event notifications, reset the calendar's notification settings to resolve this issue. To do so, follow these steps:

   1. In the calendar list on the left, click the down-arrow button next to the appropriate calendar, then select Notifications. (Alternatively, click the Settings link at the bottom of the calendar list, then click the Notifications link to the right of the appropriate calendar.)
   2. Click the remove link next to each reminder set in the Event reminder section.
   3. Deselect any selected boxes in the Choose how you would like to be notified section.
   4. Click Save.
   5. Return to the Notifications settings page.
   6. Enable your desired notification options again.
   7. Click Save.

Thanks! I found the same information on their site by myself (because I only read the email notifying me of your reply before you edited the post - and not the post in the forum, hehe) and immediately tried it, but it's not working for me.

I now contacted Google's support, curious to see how quick (and how good) they are! :)

I must say I'm a bit disappointed... no reply yet, and it still isn't working. Still hope!

Still no reply from Google, BUT something happened just shortly after the roll-out of GMail's new (great) Themes roughly 10 hours ago: ~8 hours ago I received the daily event summary for the 6th (!!!) of November. I then did *not* receive it for today, but received reminders correctly for the first scheduled event.

Let's hope it's finally fixed! :Thmbsup:
