So, what is Apollo's calendar? Is it fully integrated with Apollo?

The calendar in apollo will help you coordinate your work and your life. Work-wise, the calendar will keep track of deadlines, tasks, milestones, contacts, and opportunities. With Apollo, internal users also get a fantastic personal calendar so that they can seamlessly juggle private life and work. Apollo’s calendar is fully integrated with the other component in Apollo. This means that there is no hack required – you will see on the calendar anything that you are responsible for and has a deadline attached to it.

How do I delete a public calendar I created?

To delete a public calendar, go to Settings, Calendars, and hit “Delete”. Note that if other users are subscribed to the calendar, you won’t be able to delete it: you will get an error message instead. This is important to preserve information that other users might have stored in that calendar.

At the moment, to delete a public calendar you need to first make sure that nobody is subscribed to it. In order to unsubscribe, users can go to Settings > Calendar and untick the checkbox “Show in calendars list” next to the public calendar’s name. Please note that users who own that calendar won’t see the checkbox.

I am confused. What colour does an event have in calendars?

Users can set the colour of a calendar as a whole. This means that if you decide that you want to see another user’s calendar as yellow, you will – and this change will only affect you. However, if user “Alice” set a different colour for a specific event, and you can see her calendar, you will see that particular event in the colour that “Alice” set for it. If you have writing access to a calendar, and change that event’s specific colour to something else, “Alice” (who may well be the owner of that calendar) will also see that event with the new colour you set.

So, to sum it up: events will always appear in the colour you picked for that calendar, unless you (or another user with access to that calendar) changed that specific event’s colour to something specific.

Does the calendar support recurring events?

Yes. You can have an event repeat in pretty much any way imaginable.

A user shared one of their calendars with me, but I cannot see his tasks. Why?

When you share a calendar, you are only sharing your events in that calendar with other users. Tasks, milestones, etc. are user-specific, and are not shareable.

The main reason is permissions: user “A” might have access to several projects that user “B” is not even aware of. If user “A” shared their tasks, user “B” would see information that should otherwise be private.

Do you support iCal? What does the feed contain?

Yes, we fully support iCal. Our feed is compatible with every calendar program that support the importing of iCal feeds, including google Calendar and Outlook. (Our feed includes a workaround to make it work with Outlook).

Apollo’s iCal feed includes everything that is currently shown to you when you open up your Apollo calendar. Please note that we export events up to 30 days old, and up to 90 days in the future. So, if you scroll forward in viewing application can’t find future events far off in the future, that’s why. Please note that although you won’t find normal events in this 120 day window, you may find recurring ones. This is because we export those events, and the importing application will show them.
