Alerts on shared calendar events don't show event preview text
- This is a server issue and we are working on a fix.
- It won't require an app update to address.
Calendar alerts don't work if offline
- If your device is offline when the alert is due to arrive at your device, you will receive no alert.
- If you require alerts when your device is offline, we recommend syncing your calendar with your device over CalDAV.
No offline support yet
- We are building the infrastructure to support offline capability.
- We don't know when the feature will be ready.
Android: notifications don't work without Google Play Services
- GCM (or FCM as it once was known) or a compatible Google Play service is required for notifications to work on Android.
- Notifications are encrypted as they pass through the Google servers.
