What would prevent org-anniversary entries from appearing in the Agenda? Entries such as:

%%(org-anniversary 2015 01 01) New Year's Day

fail to show in the Agenda. I have toggled org-agenda-include-diary FWIW.

Update: Using Org 9.0.4:

  • I have ensured that the %% starts flush on the left margin.
  • I have tested the anniversary entry under a * and ** headline.
  • I have included the PROPERTIES drawer, as included in some example.
  • I have replaced the leading 0 characters in the dates with a space.

None of the above solved this -- the anniverary does still not appear in the agenda.

Starting Emacs with -Q and then evaluating only setq org-agenda-files ... to set my agenda file also doesn't result in the anniverary appearing in the agenda.

Including %%(org-calendar-holiday) results in those holidays appearing in the agenda.

    Here is a link to a related thread regarding org-anniversary -- perhaps something in there can guide you towards a proper setup. emacs.stackexchange.com/q/7869/2287 – lawlist Apr 22 '15 at 14:35
  • Where is the entry? Is it in the diary or in .org file? – and Apr 28 '15 at 18:45
  • In a .org file. – SabreWolfy Apr 28 '15 at 19:14
  • Well if you want to use org-anniversary in org-mode, you don't need org-agenda-include-diary anyways, right? That's only if you wanted to use org-diary-file – THIS USER NEEDS HELP Apr 11 '16 at 4:51
  • @lawlist: Thanks, but nothing there solved this. – SabreWolfy Mar 9 '17 at 11:28

The org-anniversary seems to have been abandoned. Please try to do this: %%(org-date 2015 01 01) New Year's Day


* Birthdays
%%(org-date 2018 8 3)Arthur Dent is %d years old

  • Can you provide a demonstration of this working and give the relevant version info? – Andrew Swann Aug 3 '18 at 8:12
