Introduction

Through an experimental feature, BlueMind allows users to view several calendars on their smartphones.

This feature is to be used with caution: some known malfunctions haven't been resolved at this time.

Server-side implementation

Configure this feature by creating a system file.

# touch /root/eas.multical

Restart EAS.

# bmctl restart

How it works

For shared calendars to be displayed, users must first subscribe to them in BlueMind, in Parameters > Calendar > Subscriptions.

Limitations

  • In Android, all shared calendars are shown in the same color as the user's calendar. To select a different color, you must install the app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.bojo.calendarcolors
  • In Samsung/Android, all shared calendars are merged within the user's calendar. The issue having to do with the Samsung sublayer, there is no solution for current Samsung/Android versions.
  • We strongly recommend to fetch calendars with read rights only. When users have read and write rights, the device may make unwanted modifications to events created on the shared calendar.
  • No labels
