I cannot edit a calendar event

For some reason I am no longer able to edit an event on my home calendar.  I can create a new home event and it automatically names it new event with a default time of 11:00 a.m.  I have always been able to create an event and edit it with the details of time alarm duration etc.
Can someone shed some light on this for me.  Thanks

1. First make an iCal backup, File > Export > Archive.
2. Remove the following to the trash and restart your computer:
Home > Library > Caches > com.apple.ical
Home > Library > Calendars > Calendar Cache, Cache, Cache 1, 2, 3, etc. (Do not remove Sync Cache or Theme Cache if present)
Home > Library > Preferences > com.apple.ical (There may be more than one of these. Remove them all.)
---NOTE: Removing these files may remove any shared (CalDAV) calendars you may have access to. You will have to re-add those calendars to iCal > Preferences > Accounts.
Once the computer is back up and running open iCal and test.
If the issue persists Safe Boot and then restart as normal and test: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1455
Hope that helps.

  • Editing a calendar event always changes time zone to CDT

    Whenever I create a calendar event in my iPhone or iPad, it is always created with a time zone of "New York".  It always syncs to my other devices and displays them correctly.   However, whenever I edit the event on another device, it always brings the event up in a time zone of "Chicago" and the times are one hour earlier.  
    For example, I create an event on my iPhone that starts at 11;00am and defaults to the time zone of "New York".  This is what I want.    However, if I try to edit the event on my iPad, it shows the event starting at 10:00am and the time zone is "Chicago".
    This was a problem when I had an iPhone 4s using iOS6 and iOS7.    I now have an iPhone 6 on iOS8, and am still having the same problem.
    Any ideas?

    I was wondering if anybody else has run into this problem.   I've tried everything and cannot figure out how to solve this.

  • Can't edit Google Calendar events in iCal

    I am using Google Calendar's new CalDAV sync system and their "Calaboration" tool to sync my iCal (version 3.0.5, and I'm using Mac OS 10.5.2) with my Google Calendars, per the instructions on this page:
    It seems to work ok in that I can now see my google calendar events in iCal. I can also add an event to that calendar in iCal, and it will sync to my google calendar. However, I can't seem to edit an event in iCal that was created on the Google Calendar web page. That is, all my events that I created in Google Calendar do indeed appear in iCal, but I can't edit them in iCal. I can edit events that I create for that calendar in iCal, but not ones I created in google calendar. Not a huge deal, but I was wondering if this is how it is supposed to work, because it seems a tad inconvenient.
    (I do have my e-mail address in my address book "me" card, so that's not the problem.)

    Yeah, I tried deleting the calendars in iCal and re-synching to them via Calaboration, but the same problem persisted.
    I did find the solution after a bit of experimenting, though. To solve it, I basically created a new calendar on Google Calendar, imported all my events from my old google calendar into it, then used Calaboration to sync iCal to the new Google calendar, and now I can edit events in iCal and GCal without problems. I don't actually know what the problem WAS, but this seems to have solved it. Maybe I made my original Google Calendar too long ago and it had some old bad settings I couldn't see? I dunno, but it doesn't matter now.
    For those who might have this same problem, here's how I transferred my old Google Calendar events into a new Google Calendar without losing anything: (You actually don't need to delete your old Google Calendar at all if you don't want to, so there's no reason to worry about losing your events.)
    1. In GCal, click the "settings" link at the top right of the web page. Then select the "Calendars" tab. Click the "Export My Calendars" link, which should be under your list of calendars, next to the cancel button. This will download a .zip file to your computer, containing all of your google calendars as individual .ics files. Go ahead and unzip them so that the .ics file for the calendar you want to duplicate is sitting in a folder somewhere on your computer.
    2. Now In GCal, click on the "Create" link on the lower righthand side of the "My Calendars" box, which is on the lefthand side of the screen.
    3. Create a new blank calendar and name it whatever you want. This is the blank calendar into which you will import your old calendar's events.
    4. Now, in GCal, click "Add" at the bottom right of the "Other Calendars" box, which is under the "My Calendars" box on the left side of the web page.
    5. Select "Import Calendar".
    6. Click "Choose File" and browse to the .ics file you want to duplicate on your computer.
    7. In the "Choose Calendar" pull-down menu, select the new, blank calendar you made in step 3.
    8. Click Import. This may take a few minutes, depending on the number of events you have in your .ics calendar file.
    9. Once it's done, look at the calendar to make sure your events all came into your new Google Calendar ok. It should look exactly like the original google calendar, but it will be a different color.
    10. NOW, use Calaboration to sync your iCal to the New Calendar you just made in Google Calendar.
    11. Once it's done synching, you should be able to edit events in the calendar in iCal.

  • Cannot find my calendar events older than one year. Where are they ad how do I get them back?

    I cannot find my old events on iCal. It seems it only goes back one year. How can I find them and recover my information and events going back further than that?

    Sorry to hear about the missing data.
    If you don't see your events there are 2 possibilities:
    1.) There is something wrong with the calendar cache
    2.) The events have been deleted
    First go to iCal > Preferences > Advanced > Delete events.. -- see if this has been checked as this deletes events after a point in time you specify.  Even if this is not checked now, if it was ever checked in the past, that will delete events.
    To reset iCal's cache and settings in the hope this will bring the events back:
    1. First make an iCal backup:  Click on each calendar on the left hand side of iCal 1 at a time highlighting it's name and then going to File Export > Export and saving the resulting calendar file to a logical location for safekeeping.
    2. Remove the following to the trash and restart your computer:
    Home > Library > Caches > com.apple.ical
    Home > Library > Calendars > Calendar Cache, Cache, Cache 1, 2, 3, etc. (Do not remove Sync Cache or Theme Cache if present)
    Home > Library > Preferences > com.apple.ical (There may be more than one of these. Remove them all.)
    ---NOTE: Removing these files may remove any shared (CalDAV) calendars you may have access to. You will have to re-add those calendars to iCal > Preferences > Accounts.
    Once the computer is back up and running open iCal and test.
    If the events do not come back then the information you are looking for is truly not in iCal.  You will need to restore from a backup (like TimeMachine) from a point in time before the events in question went missing.
    If you do not maintain backups of your computer, start now.
    Depending on how long ago these events were deleted from iCal you can try using data recovery to bring the files back although as these are past events, you may find that just moving forward from here is simplier than going through the effort but that is of course up to you to decide.
    Here are a few examples of data recovery programs:
    http://www.subrosasoft.com/OSXSoftware/index.php?main_page=product_info&products _id=1
    You can contact a local Apple Authorized Provider to see if they offer data recovery services: http://www.apple.com/buy/locator/service/
    There are many nationwide / worldwide data recovery companies out there.  Here are a few examples:
    Best of luck to you.

  • How do I edit existing Calendar Events with Applescript?

    I've got a script that needs to add a URL to an existing Calendar event.  I've tried everything I can think of but can't get it to work.  Here's what I've got so far, that's working, but it's missing the last piece:
    tell application "Finder"
              set icsFile to POSIX path of ("Macintosh HD:Users:user:Library:Calendars:icsfile" as alias)
              set eventID to do shell script "cat " & quoted form of icsFile & " | grep -m 1 'UID:' | sed s/UID://"
              set hangoutLink to do shell script "cat " & quoted form of icsFile & " | grep 'X-GOOGLE' | sed s/X-GOOGLE-HANGOUT://" as URL
    end tell
    tell application "Calendar"
              get name of every calendar
              tell calendar "example calendar"
                        set theEvent to first event whose uid = eventID
      --here's the bit I can't get working
                        tell event theEvent
                                  set properties to {url:hangoutLink}
                        end tell
              end tell
    end tell
    When I run it, I get the following error:
    Calendar got an error: Can’t make event id "[email protected]" of calendar id "6B53911E-829F-4CCA-90F9-0A493B8DF3F5" into type integer.
    Thanks in advance for any help!

    The properties of the text should still be set to the text tool if it was the previous text used, otherwise I'm not to sure.

  • Cannot edit Enterprise Calendar in Project Server 2010

    I am configuring a new instance of Project Server 2010, have full administrator rights, and have run into a problem with the Standard Enterprise Calendar. If I try to edit it from PWA, after about 30", I get the "Unknown Error" Message, whether I actually
    open the "Change Working time" screen in Project Pro or not. If I do get there, whether I start in PWA or in Project Pro, I cannot enter any exceptions to the calendar.
    I have looked at solutions to similar issues here in the forum and they do not solve my problems. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I have the exact same problem, it seemed to coincide with the installation of December CU; was this the same for you?
    I am a user in the Administrators group which certainly has permissions to change Enterprise calendars. I went in my user settings and happened to change the value of some unrelated ECF's and it somehow started working again.
    I tried similar changes in my QA environment but it still has the error there, so I cannot tell you really how to resolve it, but perhaps try some user changes and saving.

  • No alerts/editing of Calendar events from e-Mail

    My office uses lotus/imap which sends me invitations in the form of .ics files in mail on my Mac laptop.
    I just noticed the other day that all meeting invites that come in through mail this way are un-editible both in ical and on the iphone. You can't set an alarm, add notes to the meeting...nothing.
    This is really inconvenient, particularly not being able to set an alarm for 10 minutes before the meeting.
    Have I got something setup wrong? Is there a way around this? Works fine on events I enter manually on the iphone or ical, just not these automatic ones.

    I can understand not letting anyone but a meeting's organizer change details like time/date/location.....but the alarms and notes???
    If my boss sends me an invite to a meeting I don't want to forget, where's the sense in me not being able to turn on a 10 minute warning alarm on my laptop/phone???
    Not being able to add private notes to a meeting is also pretty bad....sometimes need to add notes to yourself on stuff you need to bring, how to get to a meeting room...etc.

  • Why do all my Calendar events on my iPad 2 disappear when I try to edit an event?

    Ever since I updated my iPad 2 to iOS6, a strange quirk occurs with Calendar. If I try to edit a Calendar event on the iPad (no matter what the event is or when it is), all the events in my entire calendar disappear from iPad. They don't actually "delete" themselves because I can then click on Calendars and add my Gmail calendar back. This is extremely annoying, though, and I'd hate for it to decide to wipe them all out food good one day. Has anyone else experienced this bug, and have you found a solution?

    You can sort Events manually, but you cannot sort within Events manually. So I'm not sure what you're asking here.

  • How to edit Calendar events?

    If i am invited to an event i get an email with the .ics attachment. I add it to my calender and then accept the invite.
    If the times are then changed i get another email with the new times on the email and a new .ics attachment.
    The new .ics attachment on the email update still has the old times on it (and if the times were new i still cannot do anything with the attachment - there are no options to put it in my calendar).
    I cannot edit the original calendar event to the new times.
    I cannot delete the old event without declining it first.
    Even if i could delete the old event with the old times i then have to make my own calendar event  (which then doesn't link in with the organisers event and doesn't show my attendance).
    Why does my calender event not update automatically once the revised times have been emailed to me?
    I have "shared calendar alerts" enabled but all it does is send me an email about modifications, i cannot edit the actual event anywhere.
    Am i doing something wrong? have i missed something?

    You don't say what it is you want to change, but if you simply want to consolidate:
    Select a calendar in the list, choose file>export.
    Select file>import, choose the file, and select the destination calendar. (The destination calendar can be one which you sync with Google Calendar.)
    When you're happy all is where you want it, delete the original calendars.
    As always, take a backup before you start - just in case!

  • I can no longer EDIT nor VIEW events created in iCal...

    I have a problem with my iCal in that I can longer edit nor view events.
    I can create events, but only the first line of the details for a new event. I am not able to edit or add more info in any way after that (date, time, details, etc.)
    I can delete the event though.
    When I say I cannot edit nor view events, this problem occurs when double-clicking, when right/CMD-clicking, choosing the relevant command from the menu, or when typing the keyboard shortcut of either CMD-i or CMD-e.
    Nothing works. Nothing happens. It's as if I have chosen to do nothing at all.
    I have an iPhone which I use to sync events between my Mac and my iPhone, but without being able to properly create an event on my Mac with a chosen time and alarm, etc. iCal on my Mac is almost useless. All my events now have to be created on my iPhone - even when I am sitting right in front of my Mac.
    The only use my Mac's iCal is to me now is for pop-up reminders after an event from my iPhone has been synced to my Mac.
    The problem I am having with iCal is happening with all the calendars I have set up.
    I have no online subscriptions, everything's local.
    I have my iPhone set to auto-sync with my Mac for all data.
    I am running the latest versions of iCal, the Mac OS (Leopard), the latest iPhone OS, etc.
    I tried deleting all my iCal preferences from the ~username/Library/Preferences, but that didn't work.
    I tried deleting all my calendars from within iCal in case there was a corrupt calendar, but that didn't work.
    I trashed everything I could find that had anything to do with iCal (knowing I could restore from a recent Time-Machine backup), but still nothing worked.
    Even when I had an empty iCal to work with, creating a test new-event revealed the same problems of not being able to edit the event after the first line.
    I have since restored all my data from the backup I did the other day, so I am back to square one - not that anything I tried before this actually moved me off square one in any way...
    Can anyone help me here? It's getting really frustrating having to type all my events out on the iPhone screen, especially when I'm sitting at my computer.

    Similar problem here. My Ical refuses to edit or delete events. Viewing is possible, though sometimes the whole screen turns grey. Adding new events from mail is still possible. The task-pane completely disappeared. My local apple technic-centre messed about with disk utility for a bit and than told me to reinstall leopard. I could of course do that, but it seems to me that reinstalling Leopard just to fix iCal events is a bit invasive.
    I tried also tried removing everything, installing a new copy of iCal from the leopard-cd, software updates, all to no avail.
    At the moment I'm open to all suggestions that do not include a complete leopard reinstall.

  • IPhone 4S Calendar Event Defaults to Incorrect Time Zone

    My iPhone, Win7 PC is set for Eastern Time. I use Outlook/Exchange and the Outlook calendar in Options is set for Eastern Time as well. I never had any issues until recently. My iPhone syncs with the Exchange server using ActiveSync.
    A few weeks ago I was out west and changed my Win 7 O/S time zone to Pacific Time. I did not change anything in Outlook or on my iPhone. The iPhone has always been set for “Set Automatically” (Settings/General/Date & Time). Also, in Mail, Contacts and Calendars my Time Zone is Set for Montreal (where I live) with Time Zone Support “On”. I have never changed this from the day I got the iPhone. Whenever I travel the time zone automatically switches. When I came back from the west coast my phone switch back to Eastern as it should and I manually set the Win 7 O/S to Eastern as well.
    Now for some reason, when I create a calendar event in Outlook (i.e. on the desktop) the event shows up correctly on the iPhone (example: a meeting for tomorrow at 2:00 PM Eastern shows up as tomorrow at 2:00PM on the iPhone). However, when I “edit” the calendar event on the iPhone, the time shows up as 11:00AM and the time zone is Los Angeles (3 hours apart from Montreal). You can just imagine how this is causing me havoc as I do business in different time zones and have to reschedule meetings often.
    I have tried to set the time zone to something else and then back to eastern or Montreal. It makes no difference. When I create a calendar event directly on the iPhone the default time zone is Montreal and it shows up correctly on both devices.
    Any ideas what’s going on?

    Hi Song&DanceMan, 
    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities!
    Issues with calendar time zone can be very frustrating. It sounds as though the Time Zone Support feature may be affecting these events. Please use the attached article for more information on Time Zone Support.

  • Cannot edit calendar events on iphone

    Cannot edit calendar events on iphone with most of the calendars, one personal calendar has the Edit button available but only on a few events--not all. We hosting the calendars through an ical server, running OSX 10.5.8.
    The software is up to date on the computer and on the iphone. Any ideas how to get the edit feature to appear?

    The edit feature was working correctly with the calendars and stopped. Performed a sync through iTunes removing syncing preferences first. Did not resolve the issue. I am considering restoring the iphone.
