Contacts, Calendars, and Notes
To sync with your cell phone and email - iphone calendar, contacts, and notes.
ProtonMail offers encrypted contacts for both web and mobile applications (https://protonmail.com/blog/encrypted-contacts-manager/). Calendar and note functionality will be released in the future.
> Any vague-ish timeline for calendars?
From protonmail's twitter account, as @ reply an hour ago:
"Not sooner than 2019. We don't have a fixed ETA at the moment. It's a complex project, but it's under development."
The only thing holding me back from completely dropping google and going visionary with protonmail:
-Contact sync to device
Nice to haves:
-Notes / Document sharing
-Yubikey integration (Not OTP)
I switched to ProtonMail but didn't realize how problematic it is not to have a calendar. It seems this has been promised but undelivered for years so I might have to move to Office 365 or back to Google G Suite, which is not ideal.
Any vague-ish timeline for calendars?
i will switch to proton mail when a good and secure calendar will be available ..must look good to :P
Hello, do you have any idea of when an agenda would be provided by Proton ?
Ideally calendar would sync to Google Calendar. I think the only secure way to do this would be allowing Proton Calendar to post a shareable URL to Google Calendar. Obviously any items shared would not be secure but it would be convenient. Allowing the reverse would also be nice to any items posted in Google Calendar show up in Google Calendar. Obviously the dream is to do away with Gmail completely but I think there would need to be an between step.
When you release Calendar I will go Visionary. Calender with iCal subscriptions is the only thing holding me back.
I will add, a *quality* calendar that works well and looks good doing it. Something I can use with my wife and daughters, in the same way we currently use the Google Calendars. Thanks!
I will gladly make the switch once a quality calendar feature is added AND an "undo send" function. :)
I agree with Ross: a searchable calendar would be perfect. Do you have a date to announce yet?
I promise to leave Gmail for good if you provide a calendar!!!!!!!!!!
I don't understand why Protonmail doesn't have an integrated calendar like other email services. Disappointing!
The day ProtonMail offers a Calendar is the day I leave Google for good.
Most other services are starting to offer this as part of a privacy package, this allows for an integrated calendar that would also be encrypted with the same protonmail magic!
Hopefully this includes full syncing with the address book of your phone/computer. It would be nice to have ProtonMail contacts available for use outside of ProtonMail.

share sheets would also solve this problem by sending items to the calendar (iCloud, or others)as well as to other apps like OmniFocus, EverNote, etc.
My calendar "asks" are:
1) Help me "push" selected personal Calendar Events from Protonmail into the CRM app for my cloud-based integrated business application suite (think Zoho One, Salesforce.com)
....BUT limit the information which which is pushed. For example, the pushed personal calendar event might say something like: “depart for 3pm appointment” and “estimated return from 3pm appointment.” To protect my privacy, it would not include the address, business name, or contact name.
2) Help me push an address stored in Protonmail into a driving direction application like Google Maps.
3) Help me avoid a scenario where I push encrypted [personal] Contact Notes from Protonmail into the Contact data I store in the CRM app for my cloud-based business application suite.
4) If a Business Contact becomes a personal contact as well, help me push Contact data to Protonmail from my integrated business application suite - Zoho One.
I realize that "Push" is a pretty vague term. It should not be interpreted to mean "automatically synchronize contact information between Protonmail and in my cloud-based business application suite-as-a-service if the contact is stored in both systems.
Would love to know if you think my "asks" are doable.
Please, please, please offer a SEARCHABLE calendar. I run a small business, and its absolutely imperative that we can search the calendar for previous meetings with specific clients or where the last meeting took place.
Search for encrypted calendars could be done the same as Tutanota do their search for encrypted emails: An index file is generated LOCALLY to enable search on the user's computer at that particular time. It works well. Similar to how password managers store everything encrypted in the crowd but still allow search on the computer when you are using them.
Pretty, pretty please with a cherry on top, please develop a search function for the calendar.
CALENDAR support and my last Exchange account will be transfered to protonmail. Mine and MANY of my customers', you would like it as much as I would!!
Please offer calendaring and a way to sync contacts to cell phone.
