  1. Poor Editor & Reminders on Events

    The Editor is very primitive. Cant use rich text nor just get simple line breaks to work!
    My group receives 2 reminders, once 2 days before (as I desire to have), and another within 5 minutes of that. I tried various tricks but can not get rid of the second reminder. Very annoying.
    How does Ms. CEO expect this to be a competitive tool? Amazing. I will be quitting this group and using Google or another provider very soon, if I dont see this improve by next fall Plenty of time

  2. Events calendar removes formatting

    When I enter text into the events calendar, I include CR/LF and start a new sentance on a new line. However the formatting is removed when Reminders are sent out, so it all appears as one continuous line, making it hard to read. Could the formatting of the event in the calendar be retained when sent out as a reminder please?

  3. Make Calendar Accessible and Event Scheduling possible from Android mobile phones

    We mostly use Yahoo Groups for scheduling Events and members viewing the calendar; however the"More" menu is not accessible from mobile phones (at least an S4), so there appears to be no way to view the calendar or edit/schedule events, making groups fairly useless.

  5. Allow owners to edit/delete ongoing events created years ago by former group members

    I need to update the description/message on an ongoing event and I've been given full owner permissions, but I can't edit the event. I can't even delete it and make a replacement version. We're stuck with it because whoever created it is no longer active in the group. Owners should be able to make changes to this!

  8. Why can't I use my Yahoo groups calendar on my iPhone? It is fine on my computer

    I'm happy to pay for features - is there an app that the members of our group can purchase to use the Yahoo Groups calendar from our smart phones? It worked before the change but we have not been able to make it work since.

  11. 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!

  13. Fix the calendar times. Notices are sending wrong time. GMT screwing it up.

    Events that are scheduled for 8-9 pm EDST are going out across the nation with times ranging from 4-5 am to 9-10 pm.
    This is really bad for our on line webinars and needs immediate attention.

  15. Events button/link not accessible on Android phone.

    The link to get to the events calendar simply does not exist in the android app. I'm owner/moderator of an active group and can't even GO to the calendar, let alone add things. You're killing my group with all this incompetence!

  17. Calendars with VERY few changes annually nearly always display "Your access to this calendar is being processed. Please check back later."

    Calendars I maintain, which may see a few (2-4 typically) changes ANNUALLY, so often display the above message. Often the time required to view the calendar is not minutes, hours or days but MONTHS. Why is something so simple so unreliable when in prior releases this message was never seen or needed? Please unbreak it and consult with your free advisory community before you have insight into the damage you're hitting your total customer base with. This impacts not just the moderators but many of the members as well. Sales Basics: Don't needlessly tick off your customers.

  18. Calendar problems

    The calendar sent out a reminder today for a meeting in August 2015. The settings call for 12 days and 3 days before the meeting. Please fix this!

  19. Calender sends out reminders with the incorrect time.

    Every once in a while the calender sends out reminders with the incorrect time. This month our 7:30 meeting was noticed to start at 3:30. The time on the calender is correct, so there is nothing a user can do after the fact to fix this. If this could be fixed it would be great.

  20. What The Heck Is Going On With The Group Calendar Now?!?!?!

    This happens wayyyyy too often!
    My group relies on the group calendar on almost a daily basis.
    A lot of the members cannot access the calendar and I as the owner am not able to either. This is not the first time that this has happened.
    Why is the calendar so glitchy?
    What a bummer!
    Please fix it so we can view it with no problems.
    I'm about to take my group elsewhere!
