Known limitations

iCalendar -> Remind

Remind -> iCalendar

  • Events are only evaluated in the given time frame, so events extending it, are cut of (birthday reminders for example).
  • Complex reminders are only preserved in their evaluated form (PUSH-OMIT-CONTEXT, OMIT, TRIGGER, BEFORE, SKIP).
  • Periodic reminders other then daily or weekly are not preserved.
