    HI ALL!

    I used to have a Galaxy S5 and never had a problem with the calendar app. Once an appointment came due, it came up on the main screen until you addressed it.

    On my S7, if my screen is locked, the notification comes up full screen and basically stays active until I address it. If I am logged in, the phone will make the sound, and a bar will appear at the top with the basic appt information, stays visible for about 5 seconds and then appears as a teeny weenie itty bitty icon on the top bar. If you happen to be in another room and you are logged on to your phone you might not even realize you got a notification. Anyone know of a way to get it to take over the screen like if you're screen is locked, or can recommend another calendar app that works better?

    Thanks!

    The notification LED would be pulsing, and there would be a smaller notification on the lockscreen should the scenario you mentioned occur. I don't see how you could miss that.

    The app listed by peter7769 should solve your problem. However, keep in mind that the Galaxy S5 ran on lollipop and the S7 runs on marshmallow and most of these changes you reference are built into marshmallow. Personally, whenever I come back to my phone, I automatically drag down from the top of the screen to see all my notifications. Since I have the S7 edge, I also have access to an "edge screen" that chronicles all my notifications.

    Yep, this is what I have used for years too. So many options in the customization menu to tweak just to your liking.

    I had read that this app was having issues in 6.01. I can assume that, that is not the case for you guys.

    I can't speak for others, but I haven't experienced any issues with it on 6.0.1
