Calendar Properties: "Publish reminders and extended data."

Post by VMUser » Mon May 07, 2012 9:19 am

Under "Calendar Properties" --> "Publish" there is a checkbox: "Publish reminders and extended data."

But if I subscribe to that same calendar (iCal, ics file) this line disappears. Why?

Is it an intentional behaviour with iCal calendars?

Hi VMUser, when subscribing and publishing to the same location, reminders and extended data are always included. This is by design, since it ensures your extended data isn't lost.

For example, if the option is enabled on the Publish tab but disabled on the Subscribe tab, the extended data would be published but would then be lost when the subscription updates. By removing the option, I prevent users from accidentally shooting themselves in the foot.
