When I open a Calendar entry for a synced-from-People-birthday, it would be neat if there would be a pulley option to "open this People entry/contact" - or even better, a pull right-to-left, à la in the Messaging app!

That way, it would be really easy to phone (or send off a quick message to) that person. :-)
(also an easy way to correct an entry, should they for some reason be faulty)

Present pulley options for

  • regular Calendar entries:
    Delete, Share, Edit

  • birthday entries in Calendar, synced from People:
    (no pulley, no additional pull right-to-left view)

  • People entries:
    Delete, Link, Share, Edit

  • the pull right-to-left view, in Messaging:

No need to add Delete, Edit options to the Calendar birthday entry itself, à la regular Calendar entries, as it's probably better to keep those options over at People (the place they're synced from).

Try to seperate your idea into a question part and an answer part. Try to update title to better match the question. You could e.g. ask: "How can I open the contact from birthday entry in calendar." and then answer this/your question with your suggestion. This way you would better "fit" the idea behind this site. See FAQ and this howto.

Indeed, I'm always wondering why responding (touch onto) the notification message about a birthday it is not opening the related contact. Would enable me to contact immediately.

I think this would be worth to be warmed-up for SFOS 2.x under the question of "Allow call/send message from birthday calendar."

No thread bumping please.
