I have setup my Smart tab and dock, and all the Alexa skills work in Show mode except ones related to displaying or reading out the calendar. In show mode, it will not display calendar entries on the screen, and Alexa simply times out when asked a question about the calandar.
Everything works correctly when using Alexa with the tablet out of the dock, and you can even successfully add things to the calendar in show mode using Alexa, so the accounts appear to be correctly linked. I only have one google mail account associated with the calendar, and I have tried unlinking / relinking and uninstalling / reinstalling the Show application.
How do I fix the calendar visability in show mode?

Welcome to the Community,
Can you please confirm the version of your Lenovo Show Mode app and dock firmware version please?

There has been a change related to this issue - the Alexa voice skills related to the diary have now started working, but the diary entries still do not show on the screen in show mode.
Is this a common issue and if so when is it due to be resolved in a future firmware update?

Follow up on related issue... when I ask Alexa to show the calendar the calendar displays the ITEMS of the calendar but NOT the dates on the left hand side. When I start swiping on the tablet, the dates magically appear. I would assume the date on the left side would be intended to be shown from the beginning. (Yes all of the software and firmware is up to date, just got the device yesterday.)

Thank you for the additional information, will add it to my investigation notes.

Despite numberous software updates, a tablet firmware update and a factory reset, show mode still does not display my calendar items or reminders without asking Alexa to show my diary.
Please can you provide an update on this issue?
