Hi, I don't have any regular data plan, except a very small one. So my Jolla is always connected through wifi or...not connected. And in a single day, the phone can switch between off/on line several times.

Then, I've an issue of my Google calendar (synchronized with a regular Google account on the Jolla + CalDAV to sync my wife calendar as well). It can happen (it's not rare at all) than all my own calendar events are just gone from the phone. In this case, I can check they are still present on the Google server. And after a while, (going back home for instance), the events are back again.

Not sure if this has already been reported, or if there is a workaround (by also using CalDav for my own calendar?).


EDIT: this happens only with my own calendar (through the Google account on the Jolla). This does not happen with my wife's Google calendar synchronized through CalDAV.

EDIT: The bug is still present on, really annoying @cybette.

EDIT: I think I've found a reproductible test case.

  1. Get offline
  2. Create a calendar event (on your Google calendar)
  3. Get online
  4. Wait for few hours? (Not sure about this)
  5. Browse your Google calendar with the Jolla browser
  6. On the Jolla, create a new event on your Google calendar
  7. Wait for few moments to the sync to occur
  8. Check on the Google Calendar page the event newly created is present

-> At this point the event created at step 2, is gone from the Jolla

I suspect the Google sync first pulls events from Google, and then pushes the events from the Jolla to Google. And the first even doesn't exist on Google, it is deleted from the Jolla.

do you havr a situation that you see events only crated on your jolla when this happens? could you test it? create event on jolla ad manually sync few times and observe what happens.

Sure, I'll try this and post results, it'll take few days to post an update.

Finally tested. I created a "test" event on the Jolla. Then, I went to the cinema with my kids (so no data), and gone, all my Google calendar events were gone, including the one created on the phone.

Got back to home, when for a moment, and hourra, all events were back!

hmmm... that doesnt resamble my problem unfortunately. i have problem where my jolla keeps two different sets of calendars. one is events created on jolla and the second one is events pulled from server. very annoying. everytime my phone syncs it shows different event set. thats is extra weird because all events from jolla are synced to the server.

i wonder then why your events on the calendar disapear when you are offline. i thought jolla should keep the information whwn you are offline too.
