Since the functionality of the native calender app is very ... basic I am using Android replacements (CalenGoo). But it seems like that Android apps have no access to the system alarm, i.e. reminders etc. do not work. I tried also some Android alarm clocks, which showed the same behaviour. It would be nice to implement this feature as long as the native calendar is not as mature as e.g. CalenGoo.

Interestingly, I found out that the "Timely" app can create an alarm notification that is caught by the SailfishOS as a seemingly native alarm notification, but only when the Android environment is open, and still not every time.

I encountered the same problem when I tried different sleep cycle alarm clocks (SleepBot and SleepTime). SleepBot didn't do anything when alarm should have triggered and SleepTime works only when it's active.

Is this still the case in current Sailfish Are you still using an Android calendar solution? If so, can you sync it through CaldDAV? I'd like to try that, but not sure which app to go with.

@bennypr0fane you can use CalDav with the Sailfish calendar.
