An experimental BlueMind feature 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. See below.
In BlueMind 4, this only applies to the user's own calendars (default calendar and secondary personal calendars): calendars shared with the user, domain calendars or other users' calendars cannot be viewed on smartphones.
Configure this feature by creating a system file.
# touch /root/eas.multical
Restart EAS service:
# service bm-eas restart
How it works
For shared calendars to be displayed, users must first subscribe to them in BlueMind, in Parameters > Calendar > Subscriptions.
Android: Google Calendar
On Android, all shared calendars are shown in the same color, which makes it impossible to tell different calendars apart.
Solution: Install a third-party app which lets users choose different colors for different calendars.
E.g. this which has been tried and verified by BlueMind: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.slintes.android.ccc.full
In Samsung's SPlanner app, all shared calendars merged into the user's calendar.
Solution: Install and use Android's default app Google Calendar.
Note: In some devices/versions, events from secondary calendars are not shown at all in the SPlanner app
