  1. Our reminders are coming out with a completely wrong time from the actual times of the events in the calendar, which is causing confusion.

    Our reminders are coming out with a completely different time for the events than what is in the calendar-it is just randomly making up times! This is causing mush confusion. Please Fix!

    • Please repair the time zone function. I have seen our reminders post for a different time zone than the one we chose.

      please repair the time zone function. I changed it just now to be a different time zone since the event reminders are posting for the wrong time. The system bumped out my change and put in a completely different one!!

      • Events calendar is back but . . . . reminder delivery is not.

        Events Calendar has been glitching since you introduced the "You must choose at least one delivery option" with the two tick-boxes for E-Mail and Yahoo Messenger.

        I wondered why our group was no longer getting Events reminders. Yahoo has wiped all my settings to deliver via E-mail, and will only accept a tick for delivery via Yahoo Messenger.

        Since not all our members have Yahoo messenger, E-mail is the best option, but seems no longer allowed.

        Could you PLEASE go back to Reminders as they were -- no need to tick delivery options. If we are marking Reminders, obviously we…

        • repair Events calendar

          Too many of my groups members cannot access the Events calendar. They see a message that the moderator has not enabled their account to access Events, but I cannot see anything wrong with their details, and I cannot see any way to fix it.

          • Can not edit or delete calendar event

            Many years ago I created a repeating calendar event under an old logon that no longer exists from a discontinued e-mail address. Now that I have a new logon, I can not edit or delete that old calendar event. I get the following message: "Edit" Permissions Not Available. How can I delete the old calendar event from the GCMA Group?

            • Please fix the yahoogroups calendar!

              Please fix the reminders in the calendar. No matter how many times I save the reminders, it doesn't actually save. I can edit the calendar entry 20 times, but it never "sticks". We haven't had a reminder sent out in almost 2 months.

                  • Stop screwing things up!

                    Everytime you touch the calendar, my event times get screwed up, and I usually loose the content. You need to thouroughly test everything before sending it out

                    • Calandar notice is using GMT instead of local time

                      I have been using the automatic notice feature for 2 groups that I moderate. This month's notice came out describing the meeting time as
                      Friday, 17 October 2014
                      12:00 AM to 02:00 AM
                      (GMT) Greenwich Mean Time - Dublin / Edinburgh / Lisbon / London,

                      when the appropriate local time (NJ) would be 7:00pm to 9:00pm.

                      This is not helpful. Moreover, the UK is not on GMT in Summer, so the times listed are off by 1 hour.

                      I would call this an error but I can't post/send it to customer care.

                      • The events page has become almost useless!

                        The events page shows events only for the current month. I post dozens of events every month, and I need to be able to go back to them for reference. But the only events that show on the page are for this month! If I do a search for a key word in the other events, they show up on a list and I can click on them to see the details. But no events from previous or future months show up on the actual calendar page. This is an extremely serious problem for me and my subscribers!

                        • Group Event Calendar - We are sorry! Something went wrong…?

                          I don’t seem to be able to edit calendar events that other people have added to the calendar. I get the message: "We are sorry! Something went wrong… “Edit” Permissions not available". I have moderator status though on the "Access Control" page we have everything set to "Members" to be able to view and edit. My web browsers and plugins are all updated and tried it on Firefox and IE, and get the same message. Please let me know any suggestions. Thanks!

                          • Evernt reminders are showing incorrect time even though the event on the calendar is correct.

                            Please fix your upgrade processes so that it doesn't almost always mess up the groups event calendar and reminders.

                            This problem occurs every time yahoo groups is upgraded substantially.

                                • Allow a FIXED TIME ZONE

                                  I have a very local group. I want JUST Pacific Time Zone. I have LOADS of trouble with members who can't get the time zone setting right.
                                  (Yahoo USED TO let us just set the Calendar times without these zones. I spend a lot of time now helping members get their zone right.
                                  AND -- Yahoo buries the time zone setting in multiple places.
                                  AND -- Yahoo doesn't recognize time zone changes right away -- leading to GREAT confusion. I've CHANGED the time zone setting, but my calendar doesn't look any different. WHY?? Why indeed.

                                        • Rich Text Editor Needed

                                          Can we get the notes editor to be rich text? I am a mod for my group and like to insert rich text in the notes for group events or edit the notes using rich text features, bitmaps, pictures.
