This entry was showing alright in org-agenda in Org 7.8, if I remember correctly.

** Dinner
<2016-02-26 Fri 12:00-13:30>

Not any more in Org 8.2. Now, it seems I need to have it this way to show up in org-agenda:

** TODO Dinner
<2016-02-26 Fri 12:00-13:30>

How could I show appointments (items without a TODO keyword) in new versions of org-agenda?

  • This works for me without the TODO in Org 8.3.2. Maybe this is a bug that was introduced between 7.8 and 8.2, but fixed for 8.3? Mar 22, 2016 at 22:42
  • This behavior appears to be happening when either org-agenda-max-todos or org-agenda-max-entries option is set. Again, it was fine with these options in Org 7.8. BTW, besides the appointments, this bug causes the Time Grid to disappear too. Mar 23, 2016 at 15:14

1 Answer 1


This seems to be a bug (or a feature) in Org 8.2.

Removing org-agenda-max-todos and org-agenda-max-entries options fixes it, restoring display of appointments and the time grid.
