đŸ”¥ Sorted³ calendar integration feature not available in macOS Sonoma

This article only applies to the problem that the calendar cannot automatically obtain all authorizations after updating macOS Sonoma.

macOS Sonoma provides new privacy permission settings, including authorization for calendar permissions. Therefore, we need to adapt Sorted³ to make the calendar integration function work properly. However, Apple updated the development tools, which prevented us from properly packaging the software to be updated. As a result, we were unable to release a new version of Sorted³ for macOS, and we were unable to solve the calendar integration problem. To this day, we are still stuck in this impasse. Calendar integration, which we offer free to Sorted³ users, has been well-received since its release and more and more users are using calendar-related features in Sorted³, so we take this incident stemming from Apple’s developer tools very seriously. To this end, in addition to our daily development work, we have additionally developed a new independent macOS version directly using the latest development tools to solve the calendar integration issue in a special way. While it's not a perfect solution, we hope to provide you with a solution using calendar integration with this new app.

General Solution

This option only applies to some users who were using Sorted³ before updating to macOS Sonoma, and may apply to a small number of others. Please follow these steps:

  1. Open System Settings App by clicking on  in the upper left corner of your screen.
  2. Open "Privacy & Security" and then click "Calendar".
  3. Find Sorted³ in "Calendar", make sure it's turned on, and click "Options" on the far right.
  4. In "Options", select "Full Calendar Access" and then select "Exit Sorted³ and Reopen" and Sorted³ will restart automatically
  5. Open the Sorted³ App, go to Calendar Settings of Sorted³, and re-check the calendars you want to manage in Sorted³.

Please note: If you are unable to fix the calendar integration issue with the "General Solution", please wait for Apple to update the development tools so that we can package the new version normally, or try the "Special Solution" below.
