Shortcuts: Calendar is Read Only

#1

Hi all,
I have an error message question.
I have a Shortcut that has been functioning well till now.
It’s a simple calendar event creator that uses a list to choose the event type.
It allocates the event to one of 4 calendars, all iCal calendars.
Suddenly I get an error message on one of the calendarsitems:”this calendar is read only”.

There have been no changes to the rules of this calendar. I have checked all the settings for the calendar and cannot make it work.

If I enter the event directly into Apple calendar, using the same calendar that is generating the error message, it works fine.

Any ideas??

Thanks in advance
Greg

Try disabling Settings (App) > Privacy > Calendars > Shortcuts. When you next open the Shortcut you should see a prompt on the action to reauthorise access. Do that and see if the issue with the one iCal calendar persists.

Note if it were a Google calendar, there’s a known restriction on account access.

thanks for the feedback, but all to no avail.
Unfortunately this is a shared calendar. On the other end the shortcut that the sharer uses is working. (Different to mine though.)
So deleting and restarting will possibly lose their appointments.

Sorry, I don’t follow. You do get that the settings I’m suggesting you try are for Shortcuts on a single device right? They have zero impact on anything other than the one app on the one device.
