"Search" option in Proton Calendar
There should be definitely, and fast, a "search" option in Proton Calendar.
One has to be able to find a word, a name, an address etc, instead of going back searching day-by-day this item.
This is pretty important. If you need to change a future event, or look up what day you had an appointment last year (or was it the year before?), it could be very difficult to locate without search.
ProtonCalendar - Search function similar to that in Google Calendar for both web and mobile versions. I personally consider this to be an indispensable feature.

I don't see anywhere that you can search your calendar. I imported a calendar from another service and went to search for an event I knew was in there, but there isn't a search function.
I was about to request the same feature. It's especially needed in Android where screen real estate is too limited to display month with its entries showing as text, not just a colored dot.
I often need to find an event and don't remember when it is. For example, search for "dentist". Please add a search feature to the calendar.
Second this request.
YES! Must have the ability to search PM Calendar! Basic functionality.
There really needs to be a search function in the Calendar. Without it the calendar is pretty much useless.
I have put in my handwritten calendar but cannot search for a name to check event details. I am just back to flicking through the calendar online, same as flicking through my paper diary to check for something.
Search function for calendar so you can search up all occurrences of an event over the year.
It'd be useful to be able to search for the titles of created calendar events, and then jump to them via a click/tap. Perhaps by default, descriptions should be checked when searched.
Like ProtonMail, an advanced search would benefit too for things such as:
- Events in calendar(s): A, B, C, … [checkable]
- Events from: 2019-01-01 09:00 to 2020-12-31 21:00
- Events type: Both, With end and start time, All day
- Events with notifications [toggle]
- Events that repeat [toggle]

The search feature is the bare minimum for a regular use of Calendar for me. It would take too much time to find out when a meeting was coming up, or had been held (so I could update my notes/say a monthly review; or give myself a frame of reference for future actions, i.e. I spoke with Joe on this day, that was 3 weeks ago; or have reference for broader activities, i.e. cancelled Phone Service.) I do like the look and feel of it, for what's there.
Just wondering if the calendar is going to get a search field? It would be great to search by keyword, calendar name, etc.

I wanted to have a high privacy level for my calendar, in order to backup some news articles, organised with different hashtags/keywords. The basic account didn't allow me to access the calendar, so I upgraded to a paid account in order to have the calendar feature, but I can see that there is no search option!
Without this precise feature, having a ProtonMail account is just purely useless for me. I just paid for nothing :/
Thanks for adding this as soon as possible.
Why is this not standard - not moving from Google Calendar until it is available...
I wish this could get more votes too. It's the only thing keeping me from switching.
I agree, if I had noticed this funcitonality was missing I wouldn't have moved my calendar over, I really need a search function

Wish this could get more votes. I recently imported my entire calendar from the Goog to Proton and can't use the main function I need. I use my calendar as a daily journal and need to search keywords within the descriptions to pull up a list of all those occurrences.

A facility to search all of the fields in a ProtonCalendar entry would be outstanding.
Keep up the great work.
