    Calendar Search


    Hi, this is my first post. I have the Samsung Ativ 500 Tablet with docking keyboard and like it so far. I am still trying to find a couple of solid apps and Calendar is one for sure.

    I love the stock Calendar except for 1 drawback... When I choose recurring event I can not figure out how to set something to occur every 2 weeks! I have several different things that I need to list like that.

    I can do this with the Windows Calendar online but I don't want to be limited to being online. I have found a couple of good Calendar programs that cost $20 - $40 but they don't allow simple finger swiping to scroll thru months.

    I'm looking for something very similar to the stock app with a little more functionality.

    Thanks...


    I downloaded Office 2013 and found that Outlook 2013 will more than meet my needs. Thanks anyway.

    Welcome to Windows EightForums, Mickeylittle.

    I like the Calendar app as well. I see that they don't have a bi-weekly option. Hopefully they'll add it in an update. There is usually a feedback option in apps. I asked for it via that.

    Glad you found what you needed. Again, welcome.

    Thanks for that. I hope they do add that as it would surely be enough for me and would probably load a little quicker than Outlook.

    Yes, these Modern/Metro apps are far quicker to open, to use, and use less resources than desktop programs. WLM (and other programs) on my 7 side takes quite a lot longer to open and refresh than Windows Mail app and is more complicated to use.

    Today is sponsored by the word "Simplicity". 8 is a refreshing new way of performing things IMO.

Hi, I like to be able to search for a file quickly and efficiently, preferrably without involving third-party apps. So when I press the Win key, I like that I can type into the search box directly, but it's annoying that the search scope is pre-set to "everywhere", as for some reason that's...

Hello! For anyone who syncs the Metro Calendar app with Google Calendar, does it show more than just your primary calendar? Mine only shows my primary and it's a little sparse because of it. :( Thanks in advance, ~Ibrahim~
I have several calendars under one Google Calendar account (usually by school subject and other important matters) but Metro Calendar app only syncs one default calendar, which I only use it to note Holidays. Is there a way to sync all Google Calendars using Metro Calender app? Thank you!!
Hi, I can't get the popup reminders for the calendars to work. Neither in the Metro calendar nor in Outlook. I also can't make them synchronize. Does anyone know? Do sound alerts exist at all in Windows calendars or just pop ups if any?
