Date links in Messages app

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I'm getting links for days as well as things like 'today' and 'tomorrow'

When I select them, it brings me to the calendar. 

It is breaking some url that have dates in them. 

I have had no luck on where to disable it. 

This is only happening on the Note 10. My old Note 8 is not doing this.

Hey @EquinsuOchaZeke, I hope you're doing great.

 

I've looked everywhere even under some advanced hidden settings and there is no option to turn it off. I believe the only way might be to turn off customization services but that would turn off a ton of other options. I will ask that a moderator flag this post as a feature request.

 

@SamsungRei @SamsungAdam @SamsungCole @SamsungJace can one of you guys please flag this post as a feature request? Essentially, users are requesting an option to turn off the smart-calendar option in messages. Basically, when a message is sent or received and has a date/time, it creates a hyperlink that opens the calendar up to create an event.

 

Thank you all.

 

Take care everyone

Hi @EquinsuOchaZeke, I hope you're doing well.

 

I see what's going on. The links for dates/times that open the calendar up is part of OneUI 1.5+. Essentially, it's a smart feature that'll allow you to make a calendar event based off dates/times in your messages.

 

Example, "Hey Josh, let's have dinner tomorrow at 7:30pm."

 

The time would then turn into a hyperlink allowing you to quickly make a calendar event.

 

I hope my response was helpful and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

 

Take care!

Is there an option anywhere to disable this? It is overwriting URLs and breaking them.

How do you turn this off it's extremely annoying and it makes the link unclickable.

I have not given up. 

I called Samsung support and they had no idea what I was talking about.

They sent me to a Samsung certified repair store and they had no idea about it. I was the first person to come in with a Note 10. 

Still looking for any help.

Don't let anyone screw up your phone, I have Note10 and see the same thing.  I have not thought on how to remove it as it hasn't annoyed me.
