    So I have 2 calendars, my personal gmail calendar, and my work (exchange) calendar. I like the gmail calendar to have a certain notification sound, and I like the work calendar to use another.

    I also use Microsoft's Outlook app for my work email and calendar, and set those notification sounds how I want them.

    What happens is if I have a work calendar notification popup, I get the right notification and sound from the Outlook app, but then I also get a notification and wrong sound (it uses the gmail calendar sound) from the Android calendar app.

    I know I could just disable the work calendar within the Android calendar app, but I want it in there because I have a widget set up that shows my agenda from both my personal and work calendars. If I removed the work calendar, it would leave the widget.

    So I don't know if all that was confusing or not, but here is what I want:
    1. Personal gmail account calendar notifications from Android calendar app
    2. Work exchange account calendar notifications from Outlook calendar app
    3. Both personal gmail calendar and exchange calendar set up in Android calendar app so I can see them both in my agenda widget


    What I don't want is when a work event occurs, is to get 2 notifications about it using 2 different notification sounds. I only want to be notified from the Outlook calendar app.

    Thanks if anyone can tell me how to accomplish this.

    În the Android calendar app, go to settings and select the calendar and under the notification, select silent.

    It doesn't appear "Silent" is an option. If I go into settings and then the Calendar I want to silence, I am presented with 2 options:

    • Default Notifications
    • Default notifications for all-day events


    They are both set to "No Notifications", but there is no option for silent.

    Am I missing something obvious?

    Hi, sorry to bump an old thread but did you ever resolve your issue?

    I have near enough the same problem, except I'm using a S7 edge along with the default calendar app (S Planner) and Nine for work emails, I want to view all my account's within S Planner due to agenda widget and received separate notifications for each account.

    I cannot find a solution at all.

    Thanks.

    I have the exact same problem with my Pixel. I have the Google exchange calendar set to "no notifications" but I still get them along with my outlook notifications. Annoying!
