I have created two diary entries, I can't see them in the week agenda. Why is that? Also I would have expected 11/15 to be highlighted, or something like that, to indicate an event was planned that day.

Weekly Cal

1 Answer 1


I didn't know Org Agenda can work with Diary since they are two separate apps. Then I searched the org manual with keyword diary, and found this on (info "(org) Weekly/daily agenda"):

In order to include entries from the Emacs diary into Org mode’s agenda, you only need to customize the variable

(setq org-agenda-include-diary t)

That variable defaults to nil.

  • Now that the diary entries come up in the agenda, I would have thought M-x org-agenda-to-appt would produce something. I get, instead, "no event to add". What are events, then?

  • @Erwann hmm, I can't help. I am not familiar with org-agenda/diary.
