Calendar app

The new HD+ has a calendar app that is preloaded but needs an microsoft exchange account in order to use it.  Can anyone tell me how to get the app to work or how to get an exchange account without having to pay extra for it

Re: Calendar app

I can only tell you what worked for me. I set up my email accounts first, with usernames and logins. Then when I opened the calendar, I can see whatever calendar events I have scheduled on either email account. The events on the calendar are color-coded based on the email account, by the way, so it's easy to differentiate between multiple accounts. I primary use gmail for scheduling appointments (and Google Voice) and hotmail for my primary email. Hope this helps.

Re: Calendar app

For the record, it does not require Exchange to work.  The manual seems to indicate that it does but it is syncing my Google Calandar perfectly.  I don't know if it supports any other calendaring solutions.

Re: Calendar app

It doesn't require Exchange to work. Just enter in your Yahoo or Hotmail or Google email account information.

Re: Calendar app

Sonya, Yahoo mail has problems. It had both with Color + Tablet and I'm guessing with HD and HD+ too.

 

First - delete the account that isn't working.

 

Second - Start the process of adding a new email account. Choose Manual Settings when you set it up.

 

Third - Try the following settings

 

My Incoming Settings are

 

IMAP server: imap.mail.yahoo.com

Security Type: SSL

Port: 993

IMPAP Path Prefix: Optional.

 

My outgoing Settings are:

 

SMTP server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com

Security Type: None

Port: 587

 

Also try (from the below threads)

Re: Calendar app

Is there any way to create colors for family members on this calendar app? Its linked to an online calndar but I don necessarily use that. I line every thing up the calendar on the nook and everything is the same color (due to 1 account , hotmail, being used)...I don't live online but by the family schedule. Any chancethey will introduce a color option for calendaring?

Re: Calendar app

I think they need somthing more like the real android (os) calendar. Where you can have a local calendar and add events to it without having an online one.
