Steps to reproduce:

Receive email containing the invite. (invite.ics)

Should have allowed me to add this invite to my calendar as it used to do.

Please make sure your calendar is writable and an email identity is associated to it - check the respective calendar properties [1]. Iirc, only the primary calendar would support invitations.

Philipp, does there exist an up-to-date documentation about invitation support for the gdata provider?

There are not many docs about the gdata provider, especially not for this case. Indeed only the primary calendar can be used for accepting invitations. Worcester12345, are you using the primary calendar?

Where is this determined? If you give some guidance, I can get you the answer to that. Still a problem. I've just been manually entering info, as former calendar function is kind of broken.

Thanks.
