Stock Sense to open appointment in POL ?

After getting my first SOD after 6 months of owning the phone, I decided to go easy on it & only install the applications I absolutely must have (not probably related to this issue, but more of an overall KISS thing - I want a stable phone that provides me with features I need, with least amount of tweaking).

So, after a HR I decided to use a stock Sense instead of all-too-powerful but sometimes problematic CHT2.

Surprisingly, I like it. I wasn't using most of the widgets anyway due to stability issues, and I find that I can live just fine with 9 quicklinks and a well organized Start menu.

So that leaves Calendar. I don't mind having just one appointment show up in Sense - I can see more by just clicking a button.I turned off HTC Calendar tab - it takes a while to refresh the all-day appointments, and I can get more info faster by simply starting POL that comes up instantly. I hate looking at HTC Cal tab and not knowing if what I see is all or if it is still refreshing.

But the behavior of Sense calendar widget really puzzles me. If I have any appointments on a given day (and I almost always do), clicking on the appointment brings up HTC Calendar tab, but since I turned it off it does nothing (shouldn't it just bring up HTC Calendar app instead) ? That's OK, I have POL calendar in the topmost row of links. (However, if there's a registry edit to switch Sense taps to POL, please let me know).

But if I don't have any future appointments on a given day, things get interested. I thought it would show me the next appointment, whenever that is; it doesn't. It seems to be set to only show today's appointments and I couldn't find a setting to change this. When there's no appointments left today, it shows a small calendar icon and a word "Calendar". Now, if I click on that, POL starts up !

So, to summarize:

- if I have appointment shown in Sense widget, clicking on it does nothing if the Calendar tab is turned off.

- if I have no appointments left today, clicking on Calendar widget brings up Pocket Outlook calendar. (see screenshot)

Can this behavior be modified without installing any mods ? (E.g. by editing registry) ?

Re: Stock Sense to open appointment in POL ?

eww ¿you're still on the stock sprint 6.5 21889 rom? id upgrade that to either a 21916 rom or even downgrade it to the stock 6.1 or sprint basics rom. that will stop your SOD problem. as far as the calendar situation mine would always show the closest next appointment in sense whether it be sense 2.1 or 2.5 but a lo mejor thats cuz i have the calendar tab on sense.

your missing the point man.. first, he said hes had 1 SOD happen in 6 months, so its not an issue for him... there were plenty of people who ran that ROM without SODs, it just made it more common - thats ALL!!! second, OF COURSE your appointments are still gonna show even though the HTC CAL Tab is disabled, but if you click an appointment, it cant jump to the HTC Cal Tab because its disabled - this is what the OP is trying to get around.. when he clicks the appointment he wants it to open Outlook Cal instead...

OP, ill take a look through the reg and see if i can find something.. HTC Cal isnt an app, its a TAB... which means its all mostly Manila files and not program files... Tabs seem to work alot differently than programs.. Just like Most people would prefer tapping the message tab and going to WM SMS vs HTC SMS, but its not simple at all to make that change... merely changing the reg to a different drectory doesnt work... this is similar to the task your asking for... ill look, but the DOC above very well might be right in saying its not possible..
