When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Alexa wont delete or amend events in Google Calendar
« on: December 04, 2018, 04:11:28 pm »
Hi. I took delivery of my third generation echo dot today. I have been working out, and learning how best to use it, especially for my calendar. One of the main things I learnt was that she cannot read events that were created on other calendars, but may be linked to a Google calendar.

The problem I am having is that Alexa will not delete, or edit an event that I created in my google calendar. I have disconnected my Samsung calendar to be sure. When I say 'move my such and such event to another day, or ask her to change the time etc, she always replies by saying "currently this calendar query is not supported".

Now it could be that I am doing something simple incorrectly, but she is not much good to me if she can't do simple commands such as this.

Any assistance would be gratefully accepted.

I have just been on the phone for 40 minutes with a lovely lady who was trying her best to help.
Unfortunately it transpires that the issue is that here in the UK we cannot currently amend or delete events that we have created. It must be a legal thing as I thought all the servers would be in the US anyway??

Oh well, if anyone has any other ideas then please share them.

Thank you.
