Where are my events stored?
149 Live Calendar includes a secure cloud storage for your events. Calendars are synchronized across all your devices, and can easily be shared with family, team, and friends.
In addition, you can also store events in your Google or Microsoft calendars, or any other calendar set up on your phone.
Set the default calendar to store new events using the "Calendars" menu option, or just when adding a new event.
How to set up reminders?
You can define up to three reminders for each of your events or birthdays using the event detail view. When creating a new event, the reminder default is set to 15 minutes before event start. For birthdays, two reminders are set by default: One day before and on birthday date.
You can change these default settings as well as default settings for imported birthdays via the "Settings" menu option.
Why do notifications stop working after a few days (Samsung devices)?
Newer Samsung devices come with Samsung "Device maintenance", cancelling all pending notifications of apps which have not been used for three days.
This also includes all 149 Live Calendar event reminders. You can avoid this as follows:
(1) Select "Device maintenance" in Android Settings, and touch "Battery".
(2) In the following view, touch "Unmonitored apps" within the "App power monitor" section.
(3) Touch "Add apps" and select 149 Live Calendar.
Why are notifications not working (Huawei devices)?
Newer Huawei devices come with Huawei Battery Manager pre-installed, terminating apps and cancelling pending notifications once the screen is turned off.
Adding 149 Live Calendar to the list of "Protected Apps" solves this issue.
(1) Open Huawei Phone Manager and touch "% remaining"
(2) Touch "Protected apps", and allow 149 Live Calendar to keep running after the screen is turned off.
Why are notifications not working (Sony devices)?
Many Sony devices support a "Stamina" power management setting. In Stamina mode, all pending notifications are cancelled once the screen is turned off.
Adding 149 Live Calendar to the list of white listed apps solves this issue.
(1) Navigate to "Power management settings" of your Sony device
(2) Touch "Stamina mode", and add 149 Live Calendar to the list of apps which can be active in standby.
What kind of notifications are available?
149 Live Calendar can notify you of upcoming events or birthdays via sound, vibration, popup, or any combination of these options. Use the alert type option in "Settings / Notifications" to set your preference.
When using sound, you can set the alert sound and volume independent of the general settings for notifications - which is useful when you would like for example a low volume for general notifications like e-mail, but a higher notification volume and different sound for your event reminders.
How to define recurring events?
To add an event which occurs for example every few days, every week, or once a year, define event start, event end, and all other fields as for the first occurrence of your event.
Then, select the "Repeat" button in event details and chose one of the available options. Here you can also define how many times the event should be scheduled, or set an end date for the event series.
What weather forecast information is shown for my events?
149 Live Calendar retrieves local weather forecast information for each of your events up to one week in advance.
So when planning a visit to a different city or country, the latest weather forecast for each of your destinations will always be available - no matter how many different locations your calendar may contain.
For events more than one day in the future, weather forecast information is given for the day and location of event. Events starting less than 24 hours from now will show weather forecast information for the start hour at event location. For multi-day events, weather information is given for each day of the multi-day event.
What is the difference between events and ToDos?
Events are planned in your calendar for a specific point in time - for example a doctor's visit or a weekly meeting. ToDos have a target date / time, and should be done on or before the target date.
In case a ToDo such as placing a call or buying flowers is not done when the target date is reached, the ToDo stays visible in your calendar on the current day - until it is finally marked as "Done".
