Description Benedikt Bauer 2013-12-11 12:06:55 UTC
I use a calendar that is synced via owncloud's CalDAV interface over several computers that are partly equipped with KOrganizer and partly with Thunderbird/Lightning. Whenever I change a recurring event in Lightning by shifting the start and/or end time, the whole recurring event disappears in KOrganizer's calendar view.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a recurring event on a CalDAV calendar
2. Use another application (e.g. Thunderbird Lightning) to add an exception (in my case different start and/or end times) to the event.
3. Wait until the CalDAV calendar has been synced back to KOrganizer
Actual Results:  
The exception makes the whole event series disappear in the KOrganizer calendar. The exception is present and labelled correctly as exception in akonadiconsole.

Expected Results:  
KOrganizer should display the recurring event and the changed exception correctly.

Confirming this issue. Zimbra, korganizer-4.14.4-6.fc21. Having exception in recurring event (weekly meeting) causes means the whole series is gone.

I wasn't able to reproduce this with KOrganizer 5.19.3, but my mix of 
software is different from the original report.  Can you still reproduce
the bug?

What I did:
- I used mailbox.org as the CalDAV provider.
- I used the web interface, to avoid any problem with Thunderbird.
- I created a recurring event, and waited for it to sync down to KOrganizer.
- I made one occurrence an exception, and waited for it to sync.

The change synced properly, and no events disappeared.

I couldn't reproduce it either on 5.19.3. Looks like it has been fixed.
