    Sorry if this has been covered in another thread (I did spend some time searching but couldn't find anything related). I have PB3 installed. My question is when someone sends an email with an event with a date, time and address, is it supposed to go directly into the calendar because it is not happening with me. I do see a event at the top of the email and there is an "add to calendar" button but when I add it, nothing populates except the date and time. The address doesn't auto fill and either does the subject or anything else. I might as well just go to the calendar app and add it if that is the case. Any advice from the board?

    I did some testing using my own address, sending emails to myself seeing what works and doesn't. It seems the address needs to be entered perfectly and in full (in my case house number, street name, city, province (abbreviated), postal code and country. For it to auto populate when you go to add the event from mail.

    Like so

    123 Street name City Province Postal Code Country

    Thanks. That worked this time. I was able to add it. One more question in case you know, once I added it to my calendar I tried to change the alert to notify me when it is time to leave based on traffic conditions. I don't see that option and I have been able to use that in prior betas. Do you know why it is not listed as an alert. I see things like at time of even and all the time variables but not the "time to leave" option. It has been working on my today screen up until this point.

    No clue on that one, sorry. I rarely use calendar events. The only thing I can think of is maybe it's automatic now with the whole proactive thing? I dunno. Hopefully someone who uses this feature on a daily bases can chime in for you.

    Select "None" as the alert and it'll automatically change to "time to leave". Basically, it seems you can't not have an alert for an event if you've got time to leave turned on in settings.
