I recently got a Nexus 6P and installed CER. Everything seems to work perfect except the default calendar reminders are not being surpressed properly. So I end up getting the CER notification and also the default Google Calendar notification.Is there a workaround for this?Also is it required to disable battery optimization for CER to work on newer versions of Android? I didn't know about this until I read through some recent comments here. It would be worthwhile to update your FAQ and also proactively notify new user upon install that this is needed.Thanks! Hi Frank,

I love CER and have been using it for years. I recently got a Nexus 6P and installed CER. Everything seems to work perfect except the default calendar reminders are not being surpressed properly. So I end up getting the CER notification and also the default Google Calendar notification.

Is there a workaround for this?

Also is it required to disable battery optimization for CER to work on newer versions of Android? I didn’t know about this until I read through some recent comments here. It would be worthwhile to update your FAQ and also proactively notify new user upon install that this is needed.

Thanks!

In addition to the fact that I've turned off battery optimization for a large number of apps at this point, CER notifications ate also not appearing at times when Doze is not (or should not be) on. I can be using the phone, or moving around with it in my pocket, and I still won't get a reminder. I don’t think this is battery optimization changes in Marshmallow.

But I've turned off optimization for Calendar, CER, and calendar storage.That didn't help.Is there a way to turn off optimization for all apps at once? I only know how to do it one app at a time. If I have to do it that way, I'd prefer to start with other apps that you suspect might be involved. Google calendar sync doesn’t appear at all under battery optimization.

That didn’t help.

Could you please also try to deactivate battery optimization for the apps 'Calendar storage' and 'Google Calendar sync'? If this doesn't help I would recommend to deactivate it for all apps in order to find out if this has anything to do with it. Besides that I know that some Marshmallow devices suffer from bugs in the Android system that Google needs to solve. But let's hope it's something about the battery optimization. Cheers, Frank Josh, OK. Could you please also try to deactivate battery optimization for the apps ‘Calendar storage’ and ‘Google Calendar sync’?
