Hi, I quite like the samsung email and calendar apps but I'm being forced to use the outlook app for one reason... the calendar! I added my outlook calendar and found I cannot actually edit any of the entries... if I create an entry on my S10 tor Tab-A I am able to go back in and edit it, if I go onto outlook.com and edit that entry then go back on my phone a bit later it seems to become read only and i cannot edit it!!
Now I have also tried to download another app (nine) that would allow me to sync and add my calendar to the samsung calendar app and found I was able to edit it no bother... so it appears there is an issue with the Exchange Sync with the email app that seems to be having a knock on effect to the calendar... anyone else found this/got a solution??
Also after testing some apps I found OneCalendar works really well:
It's free and editing items is not a problem. It's not bad looking either, but unfortunately not as pretty as the Samsung calendar. But what's pretty if it doesn't work, right?
Same issue here. Has been ongoing for a couple of years now. Reverted to using google calendar which doesn't have any issues with shared calendars
That is so weird, because for me it started since I have my s10e. About a year ago when I still had my S8 I never experienced this problem. I think it started during an update this last year. Anyways, it is still super annoying since I use my calendar all the time. There are alternatives, but none of them look very good...I like the layout and design of the Samsung Calendar.
I have the same problem, I am pretty sure it worked just a few days ago...
This is really a deal breaker and a shame, I would really prefer to use the s calendar...
I know, it's super annoying. I'm not entirely sure when it started in my case. Around the same time the last big oneUI arrived my company started using office365 instead of 'normal' outlook exchange. I'm not sure what that changed from a technical point of view, but for every calendar item I make I am an invitee instead of the organizer. I've tried other apps like OneCalendar which is free and works like charm. However it's not comparable to the Samsung calendar in design and features.
Apart from this I started to have quite a few other gripes with this phone, like a compass that needs to be calibrated every 5 minutes when I use a navigation app (literally). Also the quick share menu had become a total mess since one of the updates. Not cool.
I've kind of let go of the idea that Samsung is going to fix this.
There's been a Samsung calendar update recently, but no fix for this issue unfortunately.
I have OneCalendar as a backup calendar now, which also has no problem with editing office365 calendar items. only thing that keeps me from always using it (or any other app) instead of the Samsung app is the UI design (although OneCalendar isn't horrible). The Samsung app is by far the best looking. All the other apps have ugly layouts, fonts, icons, colors, spacings, etc. I'm extremely fussy about these things (professional deformation I guess :-)). I also like the dynamic (active) date icon of the Samsung app.
If this hadn't been an issue for me I would have switched long time ago already.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU
I have spent HOURS trying to fix this problem. My Outlook calendar entries sync to my phone but not the other way but with this app it works great. I don't know why the tech people at Microsoft don't know of this fix
