Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Theoretically this AddOn is worth 5 stars! But regularly I just can't close the reminders from my Google Calendar (calDav).

I now have 9 reminders open and it's getting more and more with every day! I can't deactivate the function because some of the reminders are still up-to-date but most of them are not!

It would be great if you could fix that soon and make an automatic update available.

I speculate that none of the developers are using Lightningh with Google Calendar, 'cause I don't know how this can happen quarterly.


This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.1). 

This is a Google Calendar Server bug, not necessarily a Lightning bug. They don't roundtrip X-Props correctly, which we use for dismissing alarms.

As a workaround you can disable alarms by unchecking "Show Alarms" in the calendar properties dialog.

The only way we can "fix" this bug on our side is to introduce a new feature to save alarms locally. Work is underway, but this is not something that should be dumped into an existing release branch without sufficient testing.

Great, but not with Windows 8 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Lightning is great. Unfortunately it doesn't work yet with Windows 8. You can't close reminders. If a reminder pops up and you hit the "Close" button, nothing happens. Would be great if you could fix that.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7).
