Google looking into Calendar issue where email (envelope) & trash icons are missing from events
Google Calendar is one of Google’s stock applications on Android and iOS devices. It is also available through multiple browsers as a web app.
Besides a clean and intuitive design, Google Calendar comes with a bunch of time management options. Using the Calendar app you can schedule meetings, set up reminders, track time, and much more.
Moreover, Google Calendar app lets you add events for upcoming occasions so that you never miss them.
It also provides options to send a particular event to anyone via email or delete an event. This can be done by tapping on the envelope or trash icons in the event section.
However, some Google Calendar users are complaining about an issue where they can’t find email and trash icons in the events section.
Here are some reports for reference:
When clicking an event in google calendar there was an email envelope and a trash can on the top line. They are gone, how do I get the back? (Source)
I can no longer send an email from events. Usually there was the option to send an email from the event… you could send it to whoever you wanted and send a copy to yourself. I do not see this option as of yesterday. is there a way to make this come back?? (Source)
Previously, email (envelope) and trash icons were shown on the top line of the events section in Google Calendar. But now users are complaining that these two options have gone missing.
For some only the email icon is missing, while for others both options are unavailable. As a result, users are not able to delete an event from the list or share it with anyone else.
Frustrated Calendar users have been flooding the official support forum seeking a solution from Google regarding the missing email icon issue.
A community manager has indeed acknowledged the and noted that Google is investigating it. Moreover, affected users have been asked to provide more feedback to help devs better understand the issue.
Unfortunately, there is no workaround available at the moment, so you’ll have to wait for the Calendar team to fix this bug.
