Key features still missing and frequently buggy

I use this app every day on my laptop just so I can have an easy command-tab access to my calendar. This app frequently fails to save my changes, however, and there are certain features that have just never worked.

The number one feature I would request that they fix immediately would be that hyperlinks in the event notes actually function. At this point if I want to open a link that has been dropped into the notes of a calendar event, I have to open my calendar from a browser to do so. How is this not a priority feature?

Simple but lacking features

I like having a calandar as a desktop app, so this works great. The biggest problem is that I cannot click on any links within a meeting. I also lose the functionality to start a zoom call, which is available by browser. If it’s just a web interface, why wouldn’t it do exactly what calendars does?

Can't click links today, but usually good

Keeping up with Google changing GCal must be a pain, I think this app does an ok job considering.

But I haven't been able to click meetings for about a week now, which means I can't join meetings, which is a dealbreaker.

Also, I kind of wish there was an agenda list available straight from the menubar, but that's not a ding to my review, just an idea.
