TOPIC: Event does not trigger alert
#17268
Re:Event does not trigger alert 2 Years, 1 Month ago  
If you have doubts about the calendar, create a new one called e.g. "test" and create in this new calendar a new event filled with anything with an alarm for 30 days before.
If the alarm window shows, then I would say to move one by one each event from the old calendar to the new (but this won't do anything) or recreate the events with trouble.
If the alarm doesn't show submit here the calendar file with the one event. But again, I don't think that here's the problem.

Are the events old? I mean, did you dismiss or snooze the event at least once?

Or search in the user folder (FAQ) for the .ics file, open it with a text editor, search for the problematic event (BEGIN:VEVENT ... END:VEVENT) and paste here ONLY this event (CHANGE ANY SUBJECT OR DESCRIPTION IF PRIVATE BEFORE). This will show if there's something wrong with the event data.

Here are the two events I complained about earlier:
I created them a while ago and they didn't ever trigger (i never pressed snooze or anything)

Also... I did another test this morning after trying your last email advice and created two events:
one triggered, the other didn't:

END:VALARM
END:VEVENT


I am just about to make 3 events - test3 , test4 , test5 with different notice periods. Again, none of them have been touched apart from initial creation. I'll also backup rainlendar immediately just for evidence

Ok, as promised, created 3 new events test3 , 4 , 5. They are below.
It's been about 10 minutes and none of them triggered.
I have screenshots of the events 'edit' if you want, and below is the VEVENT for the three.

Oh well... I finally found (something) where's the problem and it's a mix between your events and Rainlendar config values.

Right click on a window -> Options... -> Advanced -> Alarm (is the last section) -> Hide from alarm after days

By default, this value is 7 days. test3, 4 and 5 alarm are more days away than this. Same as renamed text 1 and 2.

Edit: Also, you can remove the lines with X-RAINLENDAR-LASTALARMACK and X-MOZ-LASTACK. This will erase all info about previous alarms showed.

Re:Event does not trigger alert 2 Years, 1 Month ago  
Aha!!!
Problem solved, now alarms that 'quietly' disappeared from the calendar are showing up. I took it back 100 days and a few events that timed out past 7 days quietly dropped off the notifier, meaning I didn't know about those tasks after they disappeared.

We'll it's also part my fault because I am using the event as a time driven task, and if I don't do it on time I click snooze for a few days and so on.

But now by putting 100 days there I effective have 3 months worth of 'snooze', right? Also solving, for example events that are 10 days ahead, with 25 days notice, 25-10=15, so 15>7, therefore no alert.
