Calendar and the definition of "upcoming"

1.1.9 release notes say “New Calendar widget displays your upcoming events”. I don't see any difference from the previous calendar. Neither on the app cover, nor on the new eventsview there are no upcoming events, except the one specific case when they're upcoming today.

This is useless in multiple scenarios: an event early in the morning on the following day, a full day event on the following day; it's not even 24-hour based, so on 23:59 it'd still not show the event that occurs two minutes from now.

There's a patch in openrepos that does this properly, but unfortunately it doesn't work on Elelelelampi yet.

Jolla, please fix :(

agreed. the upcoming events should show events by sequence rather than by date. so for example, the next 4 upcoming events (regardless of date). Or, by sequence but limit to a certain date range (would you want to see an upcoming event that's due in 300 days' time?)

It does say

See today's upcoming calendar appointments..

But, anyway I agree with @droll, it doesn't work at the moment.

And to add an issue, the event is dismissed after the start time. So if you have a multiple day event, you only see it before it begins on the first day.

I can only see: "%actual_event and %n more" on the new Events View. I would like to see all my calebdar items (or at least 2-3 more).

LVPVS over.

I can see all my events on the current day. Have you tried syncing the calendars?

@raketti, I am talking about the new Events screen. In the Calendar everything is fine. At least, nothing changed.

LVPVS over.

Currently the eventsview doesn't show any calendar entry at all
What I desire is a list of the upcoming events for about seven events or the next seven days, so I can react upon it. Such are: buy a birthday present, reserve a table, tank gasoline for the trip tomorrow, put together my luggage for the flight, set my alarm clock to appropriately time and so on.

The calendar widget of the old "HTC Desire" shows pretty well, how this could look like: sorry german

The list is scrollable, if they are more events than displayable. The patch for the calendar cover shows already a similiar behaviour.

In the event view if I have 2 or more all-day calendar entries it shows me only the first one, then show "and N more entries"... I think this is HORRIBLE
