    DJOCTO,

    the bug is - of course - still there and - of course - still annoying. I added an appointment on PC and synced (direct USB) there was no alarm on my phone ... I could open the appointment and then see the "alarm screen". I snoozed the alarm for several minutes, but no alarm popped up. The alarm window only appeared, when opening the appointment.

    After adding a new appointment on the phone (!) with an alarm set, suddenly the alarm of the other appointment(s) came up ...

    Something is "freezing" the alarm system ...

    PLEASE have a look at this!!!

    Michael, can you check your setting for "Omit ring during meetings" (DejaOffice Settings, Alarm Settings).

    Can you tell me whether this is set? If DJO thinks there is another appointment, then it will NOT ring an alarm. Try making sure this option is OFF to see if the ring stabilizes.

    It is (and always was) off. I know, because sometimes I disable all alarms, to ensure, to get not disturbed.

    Michael, Is your database on the local memory (not SD Card), and not encrypted?

    Moving to SD Card affects alarms.

    Encryption affects alarms.

    It's not on SD, nor is it encrypted.

    I'm both dreading and also anticipating the "new system". Let me outline it here:

    1. A setting so someone can select new vs old, default to new system for Android 4.3 and higher phones. Old system on older androids.

    2. New system to use notification system only. No more alarm popup. Each notification to have an "active" row that allows snooze/dismiss/edit/complete from the notification manager.

    3. Recheck through the external alarm list, so make sure it is current.

    4. A List mode screen for Alarms, shows the next alarms queued in the system.

    5. Check for integration with Google Now. How can we integrate so it is part of the Now system.

    The basic thrust here is to put some attention on alarms, and more transparency to what is queued on the phone. As a recent tech request here on the forums indicated, Android itself is a multilayered system, and it is sometimes arcane to know whether an alarm status thread is mis-timed, device in semi-connected mode, alarm sound in some sort of broken mode (i.e. Alarm shows but there is no buzz or sound). The world is imperfect, so if we can't be perfect at least let's be transparent so it is clear what systems are being told what information.
