Group Calendar not showing on member's calendar

Asked by caveman

How is it possible for people to view the group calendar that they are part of?

I assumed that any calendar entry put in their group calendar should show up on the memeber's calender the next time they logged in and clicked on the "calendar" tab at the top. However, I am in a group (created one called staff) and the information which is put on the "staff group" calendar does not show up on my calendar, neither can I add the calendar (using the more button like I would for resources).

The only way I can actually get to the calendar is by clicking on the "home" tab then going down in my profile to the group called "Staff" and clicking on it. Then on the left I see the calendar which has the info I am looking for on it.

How do people view this or how do I make it show up on member's calendars so that they don't have to go digging for it? It makes sense to use group calendars for meetings and events pertaining to a group but not if it is hidden aways so that noone can find it.

Thanks in advance for your help on this matter.

Ah... yes, you are making reasonable assumptions and that used to work. In a larger sense, you are discovering that the calendaring functionality is badly in need of attention. As it turns out, not many people have used it in recent years -- or at least not complained when it didn't work well -- so our attention has been focused elsewhere.

Basically, we are hoping to focus some attention on these issues in late February and have some fixes in the April release.

I linked to an existing bug for the issue -- it is five years old I'm afraid!

Can you help with this problem?
