14846Re: Calendar events issues
- Jan 3, 2008Ciprian, I totally understand and agree with you, such a boring
problem that you have to deal with: one simple date entry becomes an
headache that you have to double check etc... Another aspect of the
very same problem is that, if you have a date (year) like 1960's or
1970's contact entry is not carried over calendar, however if you
enter it like 2007 (recent past years) it works.
I had another strange case as well: at that one, what ever date I
entered (with or without year, at address book section) yahoo did
not posted that entry to the calendar, at the end I had to the
calendar, and created this bithday reminder manually, so weird!
Imagine people who synchronize their yahoo calendar through other
applications (Which is my case), how it s going to work??!!!
Overall the big picture is I am very dissappointed about birthday
reminder entry, and having this problem I feel very uncomfortable
using yahoo reminders at all, maybe there are other problems similar
to this as well with calendar: so far it is an untursted application
for me :(((
