Summit works with iCloud, Google, and Outlook/Exchange calendars. Syncing with all of these calendars is handled through EventKit, which is Apple's secure calendar management system. When you give Summit permission to access your calendars, it will automatically sync with all of the calendar accounts you have added through the iOS Settings app (under Accounts & Passwords).
If you've already added your calendar accounts in the Settings app and allowed Summit to access them, but you're not seeing them in Summit > Settings > Calendars, check to make sure Calendar is enabled in iCloud in the Settings app. If it is, but you're still not able to see your calendars/events in Summit, go to the Settings app, then Calendar, and set Sync to "Events 6 Months Back" or "All Events". Trying to sync with a shared Google calendar? Here's how to do that. If that doesn't solve it, reach out through the Send Feedback view in the app and let us know what you're seeing so we can help you get them syncing. Thanks for your patience. Have a great day!
If you're seeing a "Summit_Calendar" event on your calendar, that's just an auto-generated event that keeps everything, including special metadata not found in typical calendar apps like event completion status, checklist and priority. They're set to show up 60 days ago for each calendar so they're out of the way. If you have any issues syncing your calendar, go to the Settings app, then Calendar, and set Sync to "Events 6 Months Back" or "All Events".
If you're not able to edit the Event Name or other details, it's likely that the Calendar selected isn't editable (e.g. Holidays or Birthdays). If you change the Calendar first, are you able to edit the Event Name? If so, you can save time in the future by setting the Default Calendar in Summit Settings.
There are a few ways to reschedule or postpone something:
1. Tap the task/event, then its Due Date/Times field. Change it, and go back.
2. Swipe left on the task/event cell on the Planner and change it right there.
3. Drag & drop the task/event cell to any date on the calendar.
Drag & drop is the easiest and fastest way to change the date, and you can even drag multiple items at the same time!
Those lines are similar to the dots that calendar apps show below dates that represent an event. With that design, they can only show a few dots before it starts getting cluttered, and since Summit includes tasks and events in one place, most days would just show three dots, which isn't useful.
So, we came up with the busyness lines design, which is a simple way to reflect how busy you are each day. The wider the line, the more you have planned.
Definitely! Tap the three dots in the top right of the Planner, then "Show Completed". From now on, you'll see sections for Due and Done. You can also enable this separately on List views.
Tap the Planner tab in the tab bar or the month label at the top.
Yes. Tell Siri something like "Add bananas to my Groceries list in Summit" or "In Summit, remind me to call Mom tomorrow at 5pm" to create a Summit Task. If that's not working, be sure to enable Add Tasks with Siri in Summit Settings. Enjoy!
Tap the Account tab (far right in the tab bar), then Settings. There, you can change when you get a daily planning reminder, choose which Calendars to show, the day your week starts on, default settings for new items, and more.
If you're getting notifications from both Summit and the Calendar app, we'd recommend going to Notifications in the Settings app, then Calendar, and turning off notifications for Upcoming Events. That way, you'll only get alerts for Invitations, Invitee Responses and Shared Calendar Changes from the Calendar, and all of your time-based alerts from Summit. You could also turn Badges off for the Calendar app if you'd like, so you don't have to open the Calendar app to clear its badge. With this setup, most users put the Calendar app in a folder on their phone because they don't need to open it anymore. :)
