Hi, please let us know how we can improve Groups.

Cannot edit calendar events

All of a sudden, No one can edit or delete the calendar events. I cannot edit or delete the Yahoo Group events / calendar even though I'm the owner of the group. I already tried changing the access to allow all members to view or edit the events AND it is still not working.

Please fix this defect / bug.

    I am the owner and moderator of the Mearns Bird Club Yahoo group:
    On 7/8/18 when I try to add an event to the calendar I get an error message:
    "We are sorry! Something went wrong...
    Sorry, we are experiencing technical difficulties. Please wait for a few moments and try again. Error code:500"
    Previously though I was able to enter information into the Events Calendar, though none of the events were being sent out as a reminder email to members. I had previously complained of this in January 2018. Please fix. A problem six months old should have been fixed a long time ago.

    To help you diagnose the problem, I get a dialog pop-up stating:

    We are sorry! Something went wrong...
    Sorry, we are experiencing technical difficulties. Please wait for a few moments and try again. Error code:500

    When I try to advance to VIEW the next month, the month does display, but any events I add disappear immediately after they are entered, and I get the identical error message.

    I hope Error Code: 500 is meaningful - I know many programmers that have one code for any exception - but they don't work for me very long.

    Is anyone from Yahoo attending to this? The problem was flagged Nov 30, 2017. On Jan 25, 2018 this same question is asked "If anyone from Yahoo is even reading these posts?" I cannot enter repeating or single events in two groups I moderate. Repeating events do not appear after saving and single events disappear when one leaves the page. Past events have disappeared too in both groups.

    The silence is deafening. Please give us some clues about what, if anything, is happening.

    this is exactly what is happening to our calendar and all events are gone since the beginning of the year and no new ones can be created.

  • Terri Bailey commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    now I can put in events but the calendar is deleting them. I put all my events through April and they are all gone.

  • Michael Lopas commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    all of my events have disappeared. When I add an event, it goes away as soon as you refresh or add another event.

    THis has been an issue since the first week of January 2018

    I've discovered 2 occasions in the last 2 months where my event listings have just disappeared. The first one at least restored to a version where 2 of the 4 of my events returned, but they've now ALL disappeared for at least 2 weeks now. This is not an isolated event as it has happened off and on over the years. Looks like no one cares about our calendar problem, maybe time to find another group server.

    Wondering if anyone from Yahoo even reads these posts! Although I have finally been able to add events to our group calendar and they show after saving input, they disappear next time I log in. ANYBODY AT YAHOO LISTENING????

  • Peter Dalgliesh commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Very frustrated with Yahoo. it has always been problematic and difficult to use, i this isn't corrected soon we will have to leave!

  • sandy triplett commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Same here - when the page first opens the edit section if visible on the right but then disappears quickly - too quickly to click on it. Please help!

    Same corporate unresponsiveness to a problem for the last year or so. I haven't had good access to my groups calendar for over a month now. This is the 3rd time in the last year. Heck, the help icon on the calendar page doesn't even work!

  • Jean Brewer commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Jan 8 2018 Same here. I've done everything I can think of to
    remove deceased people and pets birthdays from the Calendar.
    Almost everyone has moved to Facebook, but not all. I'm concerned
    for yahoogroups.

    Apparently, I am not alone in this issue! I cannot EDIT or DELETE any events and when you change the meeting location it is important to let ALL members know. Event reminders are now going out with the wrong information! I cannot see that support is helping at all or for that matter, I can't find a link to click for "support." When is this going to be fixed?!?

  • Paul E Wieloszynski commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Not only can I not edit my Calendar events, the event reminders are all going out a week earlier than scheduled.

    PLEASE FIX!!!!
