Occassionally events don’t show in Agenda calendar

What I did:

Nealry missed a meeting because the event didn’t appear in the calendar section of Agenda - despite showing in Fantastical. Other events are fine. I’ve restarted and it now appears.

I noticed it on the Mac, but when I checked ipad and iphone, the event was missing there too.

It’s occassionally happened before, but there didn’t seem to be anything unusual about the vent or the way i created it.

Things that might be helpful to know (Agenda version, OS and model, etc):
Mac 11.2.1, Agenda 12.0.2

This has almost certainly to do with when and how the system syncs the system calendar. If you use Fantastical it talks directly to the calendar service you use and bypasses the system calendar app. Just like fetching email, the system syncs on its own rhythm and hence it can take a bit of time for such events to make the full round trip.

Thanks, that’s useful to know but a bit worrying. I’d assumed that as I use Apple’s calendar system it would be more integrated.

Well that’s what I’m trying to say, when you use Fantastical you don’t really use Apple’s calendar, instead it talks directly through the calendar server as opposed to the system calendar app, which then talks to the server (like Agenda does).

Fantastical bypasses the Calendar app and talks directly to the server.

It could be that the system calendar store updates more if the Calendar app is running. I am not sure, but perhaps you could leave that running in the background just to ensure the store is up to date.

There is not really anything we can do on our end. The store is completely under Apple’s control.
