Delete Group issue

Postby apelec » Tue May 17, 2016 7:59 am

wanted to experiment with Groups, and created two. I want to delete one of then but I get a warning that a Contact will be deleted. The contact is the one that is open as shown in attachments.

What I am doing wrong?

Hi apelec, I apologize for the confusion. The "Group" referenced in the Calendar Items area is not the same as the "Group/folder" that is assigned to contacts. Calendars in the calendar list can be arranged in groups, such as "Shared Calendars", "Work Calendars", "My Tasks", etc. When you use the menu command to delete a group from the Calendar Items list, it will also delete any calendars within that group. This doesn't have anything to do with contacts.

Unfortunately, there isn't currently an easy mechanism to manage previously assigned "Group/folder" values in the Contact Editor. If you edit all contacts that were assigned to a certain group to be assigned to a different group, the original group will be removed. However, this could be tedious if you have many contacts that you'd like to move to a different group/folder. I'm planning to improve this and I'll post a reply when an update is available.

the two test Groups made yesterday are no longer visible. If there were deleted it is of their own volition.

IIUC Calendar Groups are to display two or more calendars. Why a right click on a groups and delete asks to confirm the deletion of the currently open contact. Is the context menu refer to Contact rather than the expected Group?

Confused.
