This worked for ...

Hold down the alt key when you have the invitations list in view. All the OK buttons will change to Ok All and all the Accept buttons will change to Accept All Clicking the Ok All will clear the invitations with just the OK All.

Right mouse click on the calendar you want to ignore alerts from & choose "Get Info" Check ON "Ignore Alerts" & click "OK" Seems as thought you don't have to globally set this preference, you can now selectively choose which ...

The badge is notifying you of a Calendar notification. There are two cases which causes a badge: You've been invited to an event. An event on one of your shared calendars has been modified.

The iCalendar specification outlines what is required in an .ics file. In short, a simple .ics file looks like this: BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 PRODID:-//hacksw/handcal//NONSGML v1.0//EN BEGIN:VEVENT UID:19970610T172345Z-AF23B2@example.com DTSTAMP:19970610T172345Z DTSTART:19970714T170000Z DTEND:19970715T040000Z SUMMARY:Bastille Day Party END:VEVENT END:...

Apple made a 'report junk' button inside the calendar app on iCloud.com - when you report an invite it will be deleted across all synced calendars. If you get an invitation that you think is junk or spam, you can report it to iCloud. Sign in to iCloud.com with your Apple ID, then click Calendar. Open the event you want to report, then click ...

I wrote an answer to a question about scheduling jobs that could solve a few of the issues for you. That was mostly for a one off time though versus ongoing. If you have an ongoing job, like one that you would have scheduled through iCal, launchd will work nicely as well. But if you want an outright replacement to something similar to what you did with ...

The great thing about a specific question is that it can be given a specific answer. For example, the OP said: "There's an excellent Flickr app called SuprSetr which I'd like to automatically launch each morning at 3:55 am. How?" Answer: Save the following as com.tjluoma.SuprSetr.plist (or whatever name you prefer, but it should end with .plist) and put it ...

This doesn't currently seem possible using the accepted answer, at least if the inviter is in your contacts - it needs some sort of action from Apple. Please make a comment if there is extra privacy against invites from people not in your contacts (I thought it worth making an answer for this, given that information still seems to leak). I tried the ...

The ics file has an organizer line. Per the rfc2445 standard, Section 3.5 - Security Considerations, non event owners are NOT allowed to modified the event... hence the reason for getting the CalDAVWriteEntityQueueableOperation error. Removing the entire ORGANIZER line from the ics file before importing fixes the issue. Per the standard, if the event is ...

For an Exchange account the only way I found to clear old invites out was to log into Outlook Web Access in my web browser and decline them without sending an email in there. Just go to the same dates specified in iCal for the invites and use the right click menu in the calendar tab to decline them.

You can add one on iCloud or on your Mac. Just navigate to 'File' and create a 'New Calendar'. And there, you'll be able to create a new calendar, and with 'Get Info' (right-click), you can choose your color.

Entering the suite or apartment number on a separate line with a trailing comma, the address will display on the map as valid. The Suite number can even be on the same line as the city and it will work but that just looks odd. To add a new line use control+return

You may need to empty your iCalendar cache. You can find detailed instructions online, but the main points are: Backup your iCalendar data, particularly if you have locally stored data. Delete cache files in /Users/$USER/Library/Calendars/ -- basically files with the word "Cache" in the title; there were 3 or 4 files when I did it. Open iCalendar and ...

I created a filter in gmail to delete these alert emails. It's not a perfect solution, but I do want to be able to receive alerts in iCal, and I want to receive email alerts from Google Calendar as well. This meets both of those requirements, but it's definitely a workaround.

Using Google delegates definitely caused the high-CPU problem with me. The simple solution is to: Uncheck the delegation w/in Calendar's Account info window (as indicated by the UPDATE above) Change your Google calendar sharing by selecting the desired calendar(s) within the Google Sync Settings page: https://www.google.com/calendar/syncselect Making ...

After a ton of trial and error, I finally got this working. I don't know what the heck the issue was, but it was a total mess. At one point, I was somehow getting reminders for events in Notification Center even though they weren't appearing on my calendar. Anyway, I had to: Turn off ALL calendar syncing, including for other accounts (iCloud, Facebook, etc....

The above doesnt' REALLY work for people, especially not with Outlook 365. Here's the way that worked for me: With iCal open go to the menu bar at the top of the screen and select iCal, it's to the right of the Apple Symbol in the upper left corner. Select Preferences Once the Preferences window comes up select the Accounts section then select the Exchange ...

To fix the problem, open Terminal and run (case sensitive): killall Dock This will shut down the Dock, and macOS will reopen the Dock immediately. When the Dock fetches the current state of notifications from Calendar, it will see zero pending notifications, and the badge will not show up. I've had this issue a few times. MacOS has some sort of bug that ...

As far as I know (and I'm purposefully not citing anything here, because I have found absolutely nothing on the topic after much Googling, other searching, etc.), as of El Capitan there is no way to achieve this. My rather simple workaround is to type out my event, such as Dinner with Will on Wednesday at 7 PM And then to quickly tab to the location ...

There are two methods: Method 1: When you open the link of the calendar shared with you. You could click the plus sign at the right corner to add it into your own google calendar. Go to https://www.google.com/calendar/syncselect and check the calendar shared with you. Go to the Mac Calendar and you will find it in your calendar list just under your google ...
