BUGFIX: "Birthday calendar" function results in duplicated entries
Since the new feature of "Birthday calendars" is implemented I have lots of write protected calenders showing all the same birthday entries.
This bug should be fixed in the next version!
Thank you Ferda!
Your step by step procedure solved my problem (exchange server as well).
The duplicates were only viewable in the app, deleting either took out the actual event but left it in the app.
The events were not related to a birthday calendar.

How to repair duplicates from remote calendar (in my case it was company exchange):
1. remove affected acount from phone
2. clear cache/memory data from app
3. add acount
4. setup again e-mail and calendar
It helped to me.
I also have all the duplicate entries for every birthday, but also duplicates for events that are on different calendars that I subscribe to. For example, I also have my wife's calender, and calendars for people that report to me - I now see a "Father's day" entry for each of them, as well as duplicate entries for meetings that are on both.

Am getting 6 reminders for each birthday for each birthday occurrence. Looks like an old problem dating back to 2015.
Weird thing is at bottom of screen, if I temporarily turn off both of my email address feeds and the birthday on/off switch, then these 6 birthday reminders STILL SHOW UP in calendar grid for each birth date affected. fix for this?
Can't figure out what is triggering this weird display behavior.
Same problem and I don't like it. using BC pro and same on the BC 2 test version.

How do I delete all these duplicate entries? Deleting one at a time us painful
Same problem here. Please fix or will find alternative calendar
When will this be fixed? It's been a problem for ages.
There are about 25 to 50 entries for each person in my contacts and they are all on one (!) day!
Because of the write protection its not able to delete them!!!!
Thats realy shi...! :-(
