Mobile Widget for calendar on iOS
It'd be super useful if there was a mobile widget for the ProtonCalendar app so I can see my calendar from my home screen
Widgets are available for Proton Calendar Android.
We are keeping this issue for the iOS app.

Widget for iOS and the search functionality would make the app much more usable, it is not very convenient to open the app each and every time.

Sad that this is still an issue in 2023. Without widgets, apps lose most, if not all, of their user experience usefulness.
i'm waiting this feature to switch to proton services
already done on android, it's nice
I second this request for iOS and iPadOS. Create four all for widget sizes just like the Apple Calendar widgets.
I would like to see an option for a full month view in the widget. The current widget doesn't have this option.
I have seen that the widget blocks other widgets from updating/refreshing.
After I removed the Proton Calendar widget all my other widgets are updating/refreshing again.
Might want to look into it.
This is ESSENTIAL! Based on my experience using google calendar for Android, I barely even use the app! I do it all through one giant widget that fills up one full page of my home screen and shows A WHOLE MONTH of events. For me, that is a must to start using proton calendar.
The update from November 15 is great, but it would be even better if it could display the full month with description as well :)
Something similar to this: https://digibites.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/article_attachments/200104382/Month_widget_alpha_blue-s.png
Or the full week, like this: https://digibites.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/article_attachments/200097891/Grid_widget_alpha_dark-s.png
(note: the images are from the DigiCal app)
The Nov. 15 Android update includes the widget, see the "What's New" on the Play store page: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=me.proton.android.calendar&hl=en_US&gl=US
I quite like it.
See this post on Reddit for a screenshot: https://www.reddit.com/r/ProtonMail/comments/qmkvrk/protoncalendar_android_app_widget/
Just discovered proton calendar after being happy with mail pro for the last year.
It seems really solid but is lacking this widget to view the months events. It is a must have to compete with google!!
+1 for this suggestion :)

This is a critical requirement for calendar to be useful on mobile phone.
I have to keep using outlook calendar, so i can see the upcoming things i have easily at a glance.
Literally the only thing keeping me from leaving Google and switching to Proton Calendar. The only thing I use my gmail account for these days is event organizing and would really love to be able to leave the google ecosystem.
I think adapting ProtonMail to our widget will be more interesting for the ProtonMail guys :-)
- That is a commercial service.
So I would advice you to ask them pointing to our widget's Open Source repository:
Ich denke, Anpassung von Protonmail an unser Widget ist interessanter für die Protonmail-Jungs :-) - das ist ein kommerzieller Service. Also würde ich Ihnen Ratschläge geben, um sie zu bitten, auf das Open-Source-Repository des Widgets hinzuweisen:
Dieses Beispiel ist super einfach, dezent und funktional:
It isn't super useful. It's essential if you are on mobile. The whole point of using android on a competent phone is to see things easily and not having to log into a website. This is the only reason I use Google calendars at all. Considering proton is a paid service I'm surprised this doesn't already exist.
A widget is the only way I use a calendar app on my phone. The lack of this feature is the only thing keeping me from switching to Proton calendar.
YES!!! Even just a listing of upcoming appointments in a widget would be a huge help.
Great Idea +++ lot's of love 😉

In addition to the std calendar widget, an agenda widget which only shows the next 5 (depending on widget size) events would be great
