It would be nice to create different calendars with different colors not only by syncing to a service like google or facebook. You should be able to create one for work and others for your free time, such as family or hobbies…

Calendar pulley menu has 'Manage calendars' which shows "Default" and "Birthday" by default, which leads me to believe that this functionality is supported/supposed to be supported. Dunno how to edit/add calendars though.

For example I have for some reason 2 calendars marked as default. One is the normal calendar stored in Jolla the other is calendar accessed through exchange.

I would also like to see a colored dot/bar in the calendar month view based on which calendar has events that day. Now there is only a white bar showing that one of the calendars has events that day. Would be handy to see with one look which of the current months calendar events are e.g. birthdays.

Added calendars must be accessible by syncevolution in order to synchronize as many calendars as I want using this tool.

This is already possible, but it's not very handy for people who are not familiar with Linux and Sqlite. So I hope Jolla includes this functionality soon in the future updates. Meanwhile, I wrote a small guide for adding multiple calendars and syncing them using syncevolution: http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=92788.

cool, thank you!! I haven't tried that yet but I will do. so it should be easy for jolla to include that function in the user Interface. I hope they have it on their Roadmap.

The Patch: Add more calendars (to be used with Patchmanager 3 or Patchmanager 2) eases creating additional calendars (though may not fully solve the original question).
