    Hey all, I haven't been able to figure this one out and thought I'd check here to see if it was possible.

    I'm using LockInfo and don't want to display my calendar items on my page. I will though, if I have to, to make this work.

    I keep getting the Calendar pop-up for the alarms and would rather see them on the LockInfo screen.

    Is that possible? It's a Calendar alarm so not sure if it can show just as a notification on the LockInfo screen. Thanks in advance!

    Let me see if I'm understanding this correctly...

    You don't want to display your calendar entries within LockInfo. You want your calendar notifications to appear through LockInfo instead of having the standard iOS pop-up notification. Is this correct?

    You could hide the Calendar plugin from within LockInfo but this might affect how the notification appears if you're running the LockInfo 3 beta. To hide the Calendar pop-up notification, use Popup Blocker, made by the same developer of LockInfo.

    Yes, that's correct.

    I'm hiding the Calendar plugin right now. Haven't tried the LockInfo 3 beta yet but I'd like to. I noticed there's a thread on it. I'll have to see how I can install that.

    I'll have to try out Popup Blocker...thanks!

    Did you ever figure out how to do this? Blocking popups is easy but I see no way to add calendar alerts as notifications in LockInfo.

    get popup blocker. It's apparently free for anyone with a lockinfo license.

    I have it but how does it address what I'm after? If I block a notification popup I see a row in the Notifications section of the Lockscreen/Infoshade but never for calendar alerts.

    Calendar alerts fall under the Calendar Plugin. The events should be listed under the Calendar section if yuu have that plugin enabled and showing. You won't get any kind of on-screen alert if you have Popup Blocker set to block Calendar Alerts but you will still get a sound notification, unless you're on silent mode.

    That stuff I've got down. Right now, what happens is I block the popup and, when a reminder occurs, I get sound and a small exclamation icon in the calendar section header. What I'm missing is some sort of indication as to which appointment the sound/icon belong to.

    I turned off notifications using lock info. Settings > Lockinfo > Lockscreen > Alert popups > turn block pop ups on.

    I also have notified pro, with grip notifications. It's an amazing notification system for me. Check out videos of it on youtube. Works amazingly with lockinfo.

    I saw it mentioned somewhere but it seemed like too much overlap with Lockinfo. I'll take another look, thanks.

    Let me know if it works for you.

    If not, you could always use notified pro to block your pop ups.

    I researched it some more and decided there's way too much overlap. All I need is for LockInfo to save calendar alerts like it does everything else and I'll be set; not worth a whole other app for this one small thing.

    Thanks for the suggestion, though.

    Turn the calander plugin off (Settings->Lockinfo->Plugins->Calendar), but leave the "Show In Notifications" option at the bottom of the page ON

    I have them both on so I can see upcoming appointments and also see reminders, I think the OP just needs to find that bottom switch which is quite elusive and they will be happy.
