  3. gmail calendar event is deleted by calendar app

    Hi,

    We appreciate your time and effort for getting back to us.

    If your Google calendar can't be synced with the Windows Calendar app, then follow the below Microsoft article.

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/see-google-events-calendar-app

    If the issue persists then, I suggest you to uninstall the apps which came inbuilt with Windows 10 using Windows PowerShell and reinstall using Windows Store. Follow the below steps.


    • Open the Start menu, type Windows PowerShell in
      the search bar.

    • Right click on the Windows PowerShell and select Run as administrator.

    • Enter the below command to reinstall the Mail and Calendar app.
    get-appxpackage *microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps* | remove-appxpackage


    After performing the above steps, install the Mail and Calendar app form the Windows Store.

    If you need any further assistance let us know and we would be glad to assist you.

    Cannot create a new event in Calendar App


    Hi, I can't find anyone else with this problem anywhere on the internet.

    My calendar app opens fine. I did the setup with adding accounts and I can view the calendar perfectly in any way I want (by month, day, etc.). As far as I can tell, everything is working except for the New Event button.

    This is what it looks like:


    Create New Event in Calendar app in Windows 10 [​IMG]


    The New Event button looks highlighted, even though my mouse is nowhere near that window. When I do mouse over it, nothing happens. If I mouse over the numbers on the calendar below it, they do get highlighted, but the New Event button does not. It's as though there's nothing there at all.

    A calendar's useless to me if I can't put events on it. If I wanted to just see the chart, I'd just click the time on the taskbar.

    Is anyone having the same problem/Does anyone know what's wrong? Or perhaps if there is an app in the Windows Store (for free) that functions like this one should? I tried to find one, but they were all "view-only" calendars.

    Thanks,

  5. New event added in a wrong day in Calendar

    Hi,

    Provide us additional information to assist you better with this issue:

    • Are you using same Microsoft account configured on both the devices?
    • Were you able to create any other events for different dates and check if the issue persists?
    • Does the same issue persists when you try to create event on website and try to sync this on Calendar app?

    If you are using same Microsoft account on both the devices, follow the troubleshooting steps below on computer and check if it syncs on phone as well.

    Method 1: I suggest you to run the
    Windows Store Apps troubleshooter.

    Windows Store Apps Troubleshooter,
    troubleshoots problems that may prevent Windows Store Apps from working correctly.

    Run the troubleshooter for Windows apps

    Method 2: Remove the account from Calendar app, re-add and check if it helps.

    Refer: Calendar app help

    Hope it helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of crated events on Calendar app for further assistance.

    Thank you.

    Hide declined events in the Windows 10 Calendar App

    Hello,

    I apologize for the late response as we were trying to research a solution for your concern and we’d like to gather additional information about this case:

    • When you declined an event, are you doing this in Google Calendar and not in the Calendar App?
    • Do you mind attaching a screenshot of the step by step guide on how you are declining an event in google calendar and how you are seeing this is your Calendar app? You may refer to this

    We’ll be waiting for your response.
