    Yes, you're right.  Duplicate entries isn't the problem, though in my case they were duplicates only because my Yahoo calendar was syncing with my iphone calendar.  Even after I "inactivated" the account on my phone and the Yahoo calendar entries were no longer showing up on my calendar, they were still showing up on the notification screen.  That's where turning off the reminders setting within the Yahoo account setup on my phone worked.  Believe me, I don't get it either. It has to be a bug.

    This is bull. This is a documented bug that Apple just ignored with 5.0.1. What gives? Please fix ASAP!

    I have the problem noted plus when I click the "X" on the Calendar section of the Notification Center and then click the "clear" option, nothing goes away.  All the events still are there in the notification center, however the "x" goes away so you cant try again.  Any ideas?

    The "x" being in the notification center is to let you know that some of those events have had ALERTS go off.  By clicking on the 'x' you are just confirming that you received the alert.  If those events are in progress, they will remain in the calendar section until their time expires.

    I got around this thanks to Google calendars. My wife and I share some calendars, but not all, so we were getting unwanted notifications. I simply moved her private calendars into her Google calendar (using export and import in iCal, after adding her google calendar to iCal), and then added her Google account to HER iPhone, not mine, that's it.

    Still waiting for the bug fix, though...

    Same Issue. Trying to be patient for the bug fix.  Seems simple enough to only display the events from the calendars you've chosen to display in the calendar app - kind of wondering how this logic was overlooked to begin with.

    Just updated to production 5.1 on iPhone 4.   Problem still there!  This is crazy!

    Dont look good for Apple when the only workaround is to setup another calendar with another provider just to have one that works with only one device in your pool!

    sampe problem, no way to select what calendars the "notification center" shows.......

  • Tresdigital Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    This drives me crazy....the calendar bug seems to me to have more problems. For instance, when I only select iCloud calendar to view, I still get reminders/appointments popping up from my 'on my mac' calendar, and once this shappens, the settings seem to re-check that calendar so i have to go back and switch it off again in the calendar app, leaving just the iCloud calendar again. Does anyone else have this problem or am I missing something obvious?

    Frustrating that now as we are at iOS 5.1.1 there is still no fix for the issue.  I called Apple a little while back and the representitive made a mention as to that this was a 'feature' of the notification center and not a bug.  I think 'features' are supposed to make for better usability, not an inability to use a function.  With that said.. any workarounds?  Right now, I'm doing the following:  My brother and my wife both share their calendars with me, iCloud to iCloud.  I started two iCloud accounts, one for the intended purpose of iCloud (syncing all of my calendar events, contacts, etc.)  and one simply for their calendars to be shared to.  I've included that iCloud account only on my iPad and turned off calendars in the notification center on the iPad.  So if I want to see their calendars I can now use my iPad for that purpose. 


    Please also send a bug report to Apple if this issue is bothering you --- discussion forums are just that, for discussion. 

    Thanks for any advice you can provide about the above and for any other work-arounds!

    Ok, so it's not really a fix but I find that if I go into the email, calendars etc. section of settings, and click on the account of the calendar that I don't want to show, and disable (switch off, not delete) the calendar from the account, then it doesn't show in the notification center. When you renenable it the same way it automatically shows the calendar in the calendar app (I.e has a check mark next to it in the calendars list) and reappears in notification center. Sooo, if instead of  unchecking the undesired calendar inside of the app itself, we can disable the calendar of the account in the settings and it solves the problem. It only adds two extra button pushes to disable the calendar both on the calendar and the notification center, and reapplying the calendar both in the app and in notification center is just a simple swipe to turn it on.

    Path:  settings-email,contacts,calendars-accounts.  Select desired account and switch off calendar

    This doesn't solve the problem at all. I have my coprorate sync account with two calendars. One is my calendar of appointments, and one is a resource calendar with everyones schedules. I don't want the resource calendar showing in the notification center b/c there are more than 10 employees, and then I can't see any of my actual appointments for the day.


    I also don't want to turn off my whole account, b/c then I wouldn't get any appointments for the day.
