New Tasks not appearing in Calendar

Steps to reproduce

  1. Install Tasks
    2.Create a Task
    3.View Calendar

Expected behaviour

According to the description of the Tasks app here
a new Task should appear in the Calendar to which the Task was assigned.

Actual behaviour

The new Task appears in Task list but doesn’t appear in the Calendar.
The Tasks app hasn’t been updated for a while so maybe no-one expects it to work.
Or perhaps I have misunderstood.
The image below shows a Task called “Test task A” created today (assigned to calendar:Personal) which doesn’t appear in the Personal calendar

Since posting this I have noticed that the Task appears on my Thunderbird (oc-linked) calendar!
…so I guess it’s the oc webview that doesn’t work.

Any suggestions gratefully received.

Hi @Rix999. Short answer: VEVENT → calendar app, VTODO → tasks app.

I think everything works as designed. Both data-types are in your selected calendar and will be synchronized. But the calendar app ignores tasks, even with a due date set. This in contrast to the TB calendar, which is a combi- tool, can deal with both types of data.

Ok, thanks Alfred.
Shame…it appears to have been done in Nextcloud.

The Calendar app is a user interface for Nextcloud’s CalDAV server. Easily sync events from various devices with your Nextcloud and edit them online.

  • :ballot_box_with_check: Tasks! See tasks with a due date directly in the calendar

Yeah, possibly the NC apps are further.
