Integrate Calendar on Mobile etc
Love that you guys created an encrypted Calendar - but what's the point of it if the only way to use it is to log in on the PM web version? There is no sync, no push notifications, and worst of all it's not available on mobile.
I think most of us use calendars on our mobile devices.
So PCalendar should either have a standalone app, or at the very least be integrated into the PMail app.
Better yet, is there any way to integrate/sync calendar data into a device's other third party calendar app?
For example, I've been using Fruux to keep my contacts and calendars in sync on multiple devices. I can add a calendar event in, say, Android's native calendar app, then it'll sync up with Fruux, and push that event on to ALL my other calendar apps (Fantastical on iOS, Thunderbird's calendar plugin, etc etc etc).
we need CalDAV access!! it's useless otherwise...zoho offers this!

If I can't see all my events with my Apple Calendar app this is not a good solution.

98% of my appointments originate from work (MS Exchange / O365) so a sync option is kind of a prerequisite for usage of the calendar functionality. "gsync" provides Outlook to x sync options this would be good for me.
There's been a Proton calendar app available for Android for a few months now. I'm waiting to switch over from my self-hosted calendar until there's a widget, but I definitely wouldn't want Google calendar or some other third-party to be able to read it, so I can be patient. I assume at some point they'll also create a Calendar Bridge for Thunderbird as it already exists for ProtonMail.
This is a key feature that is making me consider ditching proton mail.

I think intergrating it with the phnes calendar would defaut the purpose of protonmail as it would sync to your google account or provide google/apple access to your calendar events as well as others.
Since this feature requires trusting the Phones security and the third party apps security I vote this one down.. Sorry.
I agree it would be nice but I do not want the option of compromise even if it was an educated "advanced option"
This is an extremely frustrating part of protonmail and one that is making me question my decision to use the email service. I need to have my calendar on my iphone and desktop and have it connected to my email.
I just started using ProtonCalendar. Opened the web version, imported my Google calendar without a hitch, fast and smooth. I then grabbed the mobile calendar app from the play store, logged in with it and found that all my calendar entries were also available on my Android phone. Good job folks, works for me. Thank you
I Agree, pretty worthless without mobile/sync solutions...
I am very much looking forward when we will be able to sync our calendars with Bridge to any calendar on laptops and phones! Otherwise this feature https://eurot20-slam.com/ is pretty useless if I can only access through my internet browser! Thank you so much for your work.
Couldn't agree more... Calendar function is critical to operating both personally and professionally. Having it available on a mobile device is paramount! It should sync devices, it should be available in all operating platforms (iOS, Android, Windows...).
Also having the ability to invite people to an event/meeting is basic and critical. I am anxiously awaiting when PCalendar is available on all my devices as not only an App, but also integrated into ProtonMail.

Needs to function like Outlook calendar with ability to invite people, categorize and integrate with phone!

An encrypted calendar is great, but very clumsy to use on a smartphone. The ability to sync with an android calendar app would make Proton Calendar much more appealing.
I am an admin at a private school. I have my private calendar, my personal work-related calendar, our staff work calendar (unfortunately, Google), and our public calendar (also a Google calendar 😕 ). I need to be able to view all easily, preferably in a single application, whether I'm on my laptop or on my android phone. Being able to subscribe to proton's calendar via CalDAV/iCal (read/write) would be ideal, as I could quickly see all my events in a single calendar and avoid double-scheduling myself, etc. If this is possible without sacrificing privacy, please do so! Thanks.

Since we all seem to want an encrypted calendar, where can we volunteer some dev time to contribute to this project? What's the roadmap look like?
Haz dev skills, will code.
I'd go a little bit further on this. Along with a standalone app, it would be nice to have a widget related to. So that in one glance, we can see our plannings, and add some more...
A secure calendar is definitely a good idea, but the current version is not fit for business. I need CalDAV access to it in order to integrate the calendar in macOS and iOS Mail apps.
This is a great idea. My wife and I share a calendar so that we don't accidently double book a day and time. We use our mobile devices for this sychronization. It would be best if the calendar were available through the protonmail app on my phone.
