  1. I have been a loyal yahoo user for years, during yahoo ups and downs, but I am getting tired of the downs. Calendar appt times are messed up

    I spent a lot of time adding four football schedules to my calendar. Today, the times are all different, and when viewing on my cell phone, the times are completely different, thus causing alerts to go off at odd hours. I'm tried to be patient. I consider Google as Big Brother, but think I'll have to find an alternative. Sad. I've used Yahoo for years. Add me to the list of those who dislike the new email setup, too. Sigh.

    • Can't make new calendar entries because of squirrly box placement partly off-screen

      Can't complete calendar entries because the box opens too far to right and down to see, even with all vert & hor scroll bars maxed (why are there 2 vertical scroll bars anyway? This occurs when calendar date is low and to right. Don't say change screen resolution: NO other website displays incorrectly like this.

      • Fix Apple iOS Sync with Yahoo Calendar & Contacts and Yahoo Help

        When searching Yahoo Help on iOS Calendar & Contacts not syncing I found two help pages that contradict each other on how to get Yahoo Calendar and Contacts sync. They are:

        https://help.yahoo.com/kb/mail-for-desktop/apple-ios-sln14840.html
        - This one says to add a CalDAV account to get Yahoo Calendar to sync.

        https://help.yahoo.com/kb/mail-for-desktop/SLN6013.html?impressions=true
        - This one says to delete CalDAV accounts they are no longer needed to sync Yahoo Calendar.

        Which on is correct?

          • Calendar search is broken

            Calendar search is still broken. The fact that I cannot refine my search, combined with your ridiculous default time range means that search is basically useless to me.

            • Need to add calendar to the App!

              Hi, I am leaving feedback about the Yahoo Mail app. It is an extreme weakness that the yahoo calendar is not in there - Microsoft's new Outlook app is seamless and is what users want/need. Will you be adding the Calendar to the app? Even in the regular Yahoo App - the calendar is very clunky and does not work. It keeps asking me to log-in again and again.

              • please add details of calendar event to invite response email

                Right now the accept/decline emails for calendar invites show only the event title; there is no way to see the details (time, location, and event details). For those of us who create dozens of almost-identical events, this makes it very difficult to know what event people are responding to. Could we please change the invite replies to include the event details?

                  • Sports calendar entries don't update if start time of a game changes.

                    I have added my favorite sport teams to my yahoo calendar, which is a very nice feature. Unfortunately if the start time changes (like college football games often do) the yahoo calendar entries don't update.

                    • Calendar needs option to add 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc day of the week per MONTH.

                      More/Better options for repeat calendar event.
                      Example: 2nd Monday of every month = no way to schedule that
                      No options with Daily or Weekly repeat + Custom

                        • Mail glitches adding extra days to a event

                          Calendar still has glitches. When ever you use the "repeat every day till" feature, it always adds another day. This is real confusing. Had post this last year. Are we suppose to come up with glitches to counter act Yahoo glitches?

                            You should have banners for events that go on for multiple days, instead of it just filling up all the days that the event is occurring.

                                    Yahoo Notepad Search functionality is missing the boolean AND functionality

                                    After the massive and long outage earlier this year (2014) Yahoo Notepad Search no longer allows a boolean AND search. Yahoo Notepad *used* to have boolean AND by default before the outage.

                                    • Notes synced with my iPhone can't be recovered if accidentally deleted

                                      iPhone notes synced with Yahoo used to be backed up on Yahoo and not deleted if accidentally deleted on the iPhone. This gave the option of going to Yahoo, copying the note (assuming no backup of iPhone had been completed yet), and pasting the contents back into a new note on the iPhone.

                                      Now, when a Note is accidentally deleted, Yahoo immediately syncs the note as deleted also. It cannot be found in "Trash" or in "Notes". What's the purpose of syncing them if Yahoo performs no backup function. As it is now programmed, whatever is on your iPhone is…
