For as long as I've used Fantastical 2 as my main calendar, its NEVER sent me any kind of notification. I share calendars with my wife through iCloud and usually anytime she adds a new event or updates/changes one on our shared calendar, I am immediately notified via the built in iOS calendar. According to Fantastical 2, it has the same exact capabilities. All events are properly showing and updated across both platforms, however Fantastical refuses to push notifications for birthdays, new events and event updates for all shared calendars. I even have its app badge icon set to display for new event invitations, however none ever display. Am I missing something? All my notification settings are turned on in the app and in iOS. Spoke with Flexibits, and they ensured me theres no known issues with the notifications in their app. I am currently using the beta, and have for awhile, but I can't imagine that be the cause as it would've been discovered well before now.

Anyone else using Fantastical 2 and also having this issue?

Fantastical notifications are not working for me. I'm not sure if it's an iOS 10 issue or what but I am not getting any event notification on Fantastical, but I am getting notifications for the same event on the stock iOS Calendar app... which I deleted... makes no sense. Unfortunately I have not been able to find a solution to this.

I have noticed the same thing with Week Calendar and therefore I'm also using the Apple calendar app for notifications but on day to day basis I do use Week Calendar. I'm still using iOS9.3.5. It remains odd that this isn't working although I've got everything set up as far as notifications is concerned for Week Calendar and probably you guys have done the same thing for Fantastical 2.
