Subgroup calendars do not seem to appear on Web site, but _do_ appear on calendar subscripton (ICS file) #calendar

Hi all,

I'm trying to set up a system of calendars for a large mailing list with many subgroups. The 'main' calendar (above all the subgroups) doesn't show events in the subgroups when I view it on the Web site, but when I add it to an iOS calendar via a subscription, I see all of the subgroup events (which is what I want!) Am I missing a feature or a setting, or is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong, or ...?

I can add screenshots if the problem isn't well described. Let me know :)

thanks! I love groups.io!


 

Titus,

feature or a setting, or is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong,
or ...?
I think it is a feature that doesn't exist.

It would have to be a setting, as some subgroups would undoubtedly want private calendars that aren't shown to the primary group. Maybe in the Features section of the subgroup's Settings, a new checkbox for "Show this subgroup's events on the primary group's calendar".

Would anyone want the opposite: "Show the primary group's events on this subgroup's calendar"?

Either way, the official suggestion box for Groups.io is the beta group, I recommend you post this suggestion there:

In the original e-mail, I pointed out that in the iCal export the subgroup      
events *do* show up on the primary group's calendar. Sounds like either         
way there's at least one bug...

Good question!
