Creating calendar events #groupowner #calendar

I created this group which for all intents and purposes makes me the group owner, but it won't let me create an event in the calendar area, says I don't have permissions to do that. What the heck is going on?


 

smoky_stu,

I created this group which for all intents and purposes makes me the
group owner,
Only when logged in using the same address you used when creating the group. If you've used more than one address at Groups.io, the system thinks that each is a different person.

...but it won't let me create an event in the calendar area, says I
don't have permissions to do that. What the heck is going on?
If you can see the calendar but cannot add an event, then I think you must be logged in as a member of the group, not its owner or a moderator. Or possibly you are not logged in at all, if the group's calendar is set to public view.

As a confirmation, can you see and use the Admin button in the left column? It should be under Subscription and above Messages.

I suspect that Shal is -- as usual -- on the right track.

Do I need to log in every month so reminders are sent out?

I was posting to the thread that smoky_stu started (unable to create a calendar event at all).

The answer to your question, though, is no...scheduled reminders should go out whether you're logged in or not.

Sorry that I didn't quote enough of the context. 

Regards,
Bruce

One thing you haven't told us is whether this is a new condition, prior to which you were able to set Calendar Events, or whether this problem has always existed.

I suggest that you log in (make sure that you do so as an Owner, not a Member!) and then go to Settings. Scroll down to Features... Calendar and make sure that it is set to Subscribers can view, Moderators can edit and NOT Calendar is disabled.
