Hi there,




Recently had one of the bosses at work come to me with a calendar issue. We use Google calendar to let them keep track of where everyone they will be on a daily basis. They use Sunrise on their phones for their personal calendar, but a shortcut to the mobile site so they can see where everyone else is.




 Some time over the Christmas break there was a change and now they see the following:



Previously the lines just had the name of the shared calendar instead of the share link.




I have tested this on my personal Google account with the same outcome.




Can anyone else confirm this functionality, found a way around it or noticed when it started? Alternatively, can anyone suggest a calendar app that will list events with calendar name? With 16 people involved memorising colours is impractical.




Thanks for the time.

Hi, I used to use google calendar a lot.


I have noticed the same behavior, and it really sucks.


Its not so bad if you set up the calendar using the built in iOS calendar app, when you 'open' a calendar item, it shows correctly the username of the persons calendar. However it still doesn't show their name (only colour) in the agenda view.
