Dear Apple Support Communities,

 

I wonder why my girlfriend gets more an more calender notifications, which stay stuck in her 'Inbox - New'.

 

Example:

 

I create a new event and add her as participant. She get's the "Accept, Deny, Maybe" notification, which dissappears after she made a choice, but the notification that I created this event stays stuck in her inbox.

 

P.S.: We share our calenders via iCloud. She can see my calenders and I can see her calenders. No edit-access. Both devices (iPhone 5s) have iOS 7.0.4 installed.

 

Does anyone of you maybe have a work-around or a fix-option for this issue?

 

In advance I thank you for your help!

 

Yours sincerely,

 

 

 

Marc

This happens to me too. My solution is to unsync and resync with the server:

  • go to Settings / Main, Contacts, Callendars
  • in the Accounts group, go to the appropriate account (for me, it always happens with MS Exchange)
  • Switch off Calendars (events will not be synced from this server any more)
  • You will be asked whether you are sure, because it will delete all the events that are currently synced from this server. Don't worry, they will remain on the server. They will be just deleted from your phone, including the stuck invitation.
  • Wait a moment
  • Switch on Calendars again
  • Now you can go to Calendar app. Events from that server will be missing, but will be being downloaded again. After a short while, all the events will be back in your calendar, but the stuck invitation will be cleared.

 

It has happend to me several times since upgrading to iOS 7.0, say once per month, and it's shame that it was not fixed by iOS 7.1.

I have the exact same issue with the same setup - the only difference is that my wife and I both have the iPhone 4S.  Unfortunately I don't have a solution.  Anyone else seeing this?

    It's properly a but, which will be hopfully fixed with iOS 7.1!

    Does nobody has a trouble shoot for this bug?

    Here you can see how it looks like:

     

     

     

    Notification stuck in the Inbox of my Calendar: http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/856/jcrl.jpg

     

    1 Red Badge on my Home screen, which can not disappear: http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/800x600q90/546/3j8n.jpg

     

    The only solution I figured out is to tell the person who added the event to delete it and reinvite me. But this is very annoying for the person who invites me to event and also for myself.

    Any suggestions?

    This is a user to user support forum. Generally, if no one has responded to your thread, it means that no one has experienced your problem, and/or no one has a solution to your issue. I can understand your frustration, however posting every 30 days is not going to get you an answer if no one else has posted. If you have email notifications set up for the post, if someone responds, you will get an email. Good luck, and no, I do not use calendars in this manner, so I cannot recommend a solution.

    It can't be true that no one else, expect briansanders74 and me, is having this **** annyoing bug! I'm really ****** off! I can't invite my girlfriend to events or vice-versa without having this disburbing god **** issue!

     

    I hope Apple is fixing this with iOS 7.1! This *****!!!!!

     

    I'm sorry for my parlance, but it's really annoying, beeing the only one with this bug and no one can help me out. I bought Apple products in order NOT to have such issues...

    My wife and I are experiencing the same problem, but sadly don't have a solution.  Would welcome any assistance in this regard.  Thanks.

    Great news! I thought they fixed it with iOS 7.1! I didn't tried it anymore since iOS 7.1!

     

    Well now we have a solution for this! Thanks!

     

    You think that this will also work with iCloud calendar?

  • kalinav Level 1 Level 1

    I don't know whether this works with iCloud. It never happened to me with iCloud. I use iCloud for personal use only, I get invitations very rarely. In contrast with my employer's Exchange where I receive invitations quite extensively.

     

    By the way, the re-syncing of past events might be quite data consuming (I don't know, just guess) so it is probably better to do it on wifi.

  • Stema001 Level 1 Level 1

    It works the same way with iCloud. I contacted Apple now via Chat.

    Hey Marc

     

    Glad to read that I am not the only one with this. Exactly the same thing with me and my wife's phone. It's so annoying.

    Believe me, I tried anything I found on the internet, out of various forums, but nothing helped so far. Except to ask the person who invited me to delete the invitation and redo it - which is really not a nice thing to ask.

     

    I will try what kalinav suggested - thank you for this, kalinav.

    But still, even if it works it's not really an option. Even more so since I do not even want to get those kind of notifications - inviatations are fine, of course, but I do not need to be aware of every single change/edit that my wife is doing on the side. I just can't find an option to disable this.

     

    Did you get any support via chat, as you mentioned before?

     

    Thank you for your feedback, that's very appreciated.

    Have a great evening, Alain
