Calendar Attachments

17 04 2018

In some cases I’d d like to add one or more attachments to a calendar event, e.g. a JPEG, a PDF, a Pages, or an Excel document with more detailed information about it.

In my example I added the application form (PDF) to prolong my retirement visa for Thailand.

This is neither an option in Apple’s app Calendar nor in the calendar feature of Microsoft’s app Outlook. Only Google Calendar provides an option to add an attachment (from Google Drive) regardless of its file format.

Dear iOS developers,

please implement an option to add an
attachment via Files to calendar events.

Thanks.

If you would also like to see this feature in an updated Calendar app please send feedback on

Hey Apple!

Electronically signed documents are legally invalid in most countries of the world.

And there is even more.

  • Sending a document as an attachment to an unencrypted mail is like an invitation for bad boys to use the signature done with the  Pencil.
  • Using it for business purposes would also require to keep it accessible over 5 to 10 years. But where’s your document management and digital archiving support?

No, no.

It’s not that easy you want us to see this feature.

Thanks for dropping by.
