Where are my events stored?
149 Live Calendar comes with an own calendar storage to enable more features and
functionality for your events.
When using the app without a 149 Live Calendar account, events are stored in the private data folders of the app. Backing up the app via standard iOS or Android means will also back up all calendar data.
A free 149 Live Calendar account includes secure cloud storage for your events. Calendars can then be synchronized across all your devices, and can easily be shared with family, team, and friends.
In addition, you can also store events in your existing Google or Microsoft calendars, or any other calendar set up on your device. Tap the button below "Photos" / "Camera" / "Colors" to choose the target calendar when editing or creating an event.
What is the difference between events and ToDos?
Events are planned in your calendar for a specific point in time - for example a doctor's
visit or a weekly meeting. ToDos have a target date / time, and should be done on or
before the target date.
In case a ToDo such as placing a call or buying flowers is not done when the target date is reached, the ToDo stays visible in your calendar on the current day - until it is finally marked as "Done".
How to share calendars and ToDo lists?
You can share your calendars and ToDo lists by inviting participants:
iOS: Tap "More" in the bottom navigation bar, and select "Add participants". Then tap on the calendar or ToDo list you would like to share.
Android: Select "Calendars & ToDo lists" from the main menu. Tap on the calendar or ToDo list name you would like to share, and select "Share" from the following dialog.
Then, choose between read-only and read / write access for the new participants, and decide if you would like to re-confirm each person who accepted your invitation. Finally, send the calendar invitation to the participants.
How to set up reminders?
You can define up to three reminders for each of your events, ToDos or birthdays using
the event edit view. When creating a new event, the reminder default is set to 15
minutes before event start. For birthdays, two reminders are set by default: One day
before and on birthday date.
You can change default settings as follows:
iOS: Tap "More" in the bottom navigation bar, and head to "Settings". Then tap on "Reminders".
Android: Select "Settings" from the main menu. Tap on the button next to "Default reminders and more" in the "Event reminders" module.
Why are reminder notifications delayed or do not appear at all (Android devices)?
Devices running Android 6 and higher include battery optimization. Apps not
white listed from optimization might not be able to run in the background and might see
their notifications delayed significantly when the app itself is not running.
To make notifications work reliably, 149 Live Calendar must be excluded from such optimization:
(1) Select "Settings" from the main menu.
(2) Tap on the button next to "Default reminders and more" in the "Event reminders" module.
(3) In case a warning is displayed, tap the button of the alert module to open Android settings.
(4) In Android settings, select "All apps" by tapping on the header.
(5) Select 149 Live Calendar, and exclude it from optimization.
In case 149 Live Calendar is already excluded from optimization and notifications still do not show, make sure you do not use a notification blocker such as CleanMaster or SecurityMaster.
Phones or tablets running older Android versions often come with proprietary battery managers such as Samsung Device Maintenance, Huawei battery manager or Sony stamina mode. Get in touch w/ our support team for configuring these devices.
How to define recurring events?
To add an event which occurs for example every few days, every week, or once a year,
define event start, event end, and all other fields as for the first occurrence of your
Then, select the "Repeat" button in event details and chose one of the available options. Here you can also define how many times the event should be scheduled, or set an end date for the event series.
What weather forecast information is shown for my events?
149 Live Calendar retrieves local weather forecast information for each of your events
up to one week in advance.
So when planning a visit to a different city or country, the latest weather forecast for each of your destinations will always be available - no matter how many different locations your calendar may contain.
For events more than one day in the future, weather forecast information is given for the day and location of event. Events starting less than 24 hours from now will show weather forecast information for the start hour at event location. For multi-day events, weather information is given for each day of the multi-day event.
