Edison Mail's Large Assistant Update gives you more features in a convenient and efficient package. One of the most important changes in the updates 1.17.0 (iOS) and 1.12.0 (Android) is the calendar function for all connected e-mail accounts. Other apps, like Spark, have been around for a while, but we're glad that Edison finally jumped aboard the train.
Unfortunately, the calendar integration in Edison's update is not quite like that of some other apps. You will not find a full calendar experience here. Instead, the wizard tries to help you track your schedule with useful updates from three key categories. You probably still need a full-featured calendar app, but the assistant's calendar functionality is definitely better than nothing.
You can find Edison's calendar feature in the wizard window by tapping the wizard's top right button. By default, the wizard displays three important information about the calendar.
First, "Today's Calendar," which gives you an overview of the events of the current day. Second, "Pending Calendar Invitations", which lists all the invitations you did not respond to. And thirdly, "Up Next", which gives you a detailed overview of events that will take place in the next 30 minutes. If you have an event under "Next," you can tap "Event Details" to launch Google Calendar.
"Invitations" is the only calendar feature available in the app is interactive. Touch "Ignore" to close the invitation or "Reply" to send an official response. The latter opens a second window in which additional information about the invitation is displayed, eg. For example, the list of invitees, the calendar, the location, and so on. Tap Accept, Maybe, or Decline, and Edison accepts the invitation to care of the rest.
These options only appear if you have corresponding calendar events feature. For example, if you do not have any pending invitations, "Pending Calednar Invitations" will not be displayed. If you have no events within 30 minutes, "Up Next" will also not show anything. And if you do not have any appointments for this day, "Today's Calendar" is also missing.
Would it be fantastic to have a full calendar in Edison? Absolute. However, you may find that these three areas meet most of your calendaring needs. If you do not use one, two, or three of these areas, you can always turn them off.
