why not just use a specific email group (with 1 address) as the "calendar owner" email under Options->Security? Then you could have as many members as you wish.

We could make the field larger to allow more emails to be crammed into that space, but the code is really intended to only send 1 email to 1 user. The distribution list idea would seem to work for both of us...

btw, Category will take a bit of effort to add. But isn't the start time already on the email? it should be above the title in between the [ ]

That should work, Is this specific Email group function something that is set up within Localendar, or a 3rd party application?

You have done a lot of changes for me. I'll take this one off the table.

Neither start time, end time or duration are on what I, and the other users receive. Go here:
http://www.ottawapark.org/reference/images/Localendar_addEventProblemE.png

Image #1 (the top one) is how I fill out the 'Add Event' screen, which includes the Start time and Duration. #2 is what the Popup shows when the event is clicked on. #3 is what I, as the submitter receives from Localendar. Note that the date is added to the end of the Title entry, but NO times are listed. And #4 is what the owner (2 in this example) receives [different Email program]. Again, only the date shows at the end of the Title entry, and NO times.

Category is really not necessary if I could have both start and end times included. I foresee several 'Patrol Schedule' events on the same day, so having a starting time is vital. There may be some with identical starting times, so that is why I ask for the ending time. I envision few, if any, which have identical start AND ending time. It is only this last problem that having the Category would help sort out.

Ah - the image explains a lot. For some reason, I thought you were talking about the Event Reminders, which *do* contain the time and category. I'll check into what would be involved in adding to the emails in your example.

OK - the event time and category should now be present on the notification emails that are sent out.

That works great! Just what I needed. Thanks. smile

Not sure if this is related to your change or not, but notifications that I sent Saturday night [which is when I opened your post and tried it] took about 4 hours before they were 'delivered'. Reminders took about the same amount of time. And in fact, the same reminders were sent again today.

I added new events today, and those notifications took about an hour to be delivered.

They include the time, but not the category. Perhaps you could add that here also?

That is essentially what I was trying to do with the Google group, but I also wanted the owner's (me) Email address also listed. You only allow 50 spaces, and I needed about 65. My Email program allows me to set up a group, but that group can only be used within my Email program. Is there an alternative way?

I just did a test Add, and got the time and category in my notification email:

Calendar add event test on 11/24/2015 9 pm (Conference Room 2)

(Conference Room 2 was the category)
Are you not seeing them?

Is there a reason you cant put yourself in the google group email? groups.yahoo.com would also probably work.

Again, I hesitate to request enlarging the field b/c the odds are that we will correct supporting more than 1 email in the owner field in the future.

Yes, I see them when I do an ADD Event. But you had indicated they were both there for Event Reminders; only the Time is there, NOT the Category.

Just being stubborn, I guess biggrin
Ill try that.
