    I have a shared google calendar with my wife... when she puts something in there (to let me know what i am doing at the weekend :) i get sent an email AND the calendar invitation... so i get two alerts on my phone/ipad.


    anyone else find this annoying or have a way to stop the email but keep the invitation alert?

    i tried filtering (in gmail) the emails to be marked as read and archived... but then i loose the invitation alert on my devices also :(

    any ideas?

    Very annoying. Its the reason me and my wife moved to iCloud. Hotmail also has email notification when events are created/changed w/o any invitations. What annoys me about Google is having to accept the event once the invitation is sent. Heck, I've given permission to my wife so why do I have to get an invite....

    ok so i think i found the solution. in gmail i just setup a rul to mark the incoming emails a Read but not archived. With this setup i still get the invitation on my iphone etc, but no duplicate email (which is the desired behaviour for me)


    in google calendar you can set shared calendar invitations to auto-accept... i spotted it yesterday while i was digging to solve my problem

    Yes but I don't want any invitations sent..... Google needs to change this.

    In your case you should share the calendars at Google so that, in the end, each can edit the other's calendar directly. No changes from Google are required.

    I believe the is also an option in the calendar settings on you iOS device to disable all invitation messages
