Not an easy way, no. But creating another calendar specifically for this is probably the best way. You just have to enter the dates in twice. A useful calendar, though.
I did slightly differently. In Addressbook, I still used the Birthday Field but inserted both names in the "Name" field. Still shows up as a "birthday" but with two names - I simply understand it to be an anniversary. It does mean creating extra vcards.
Using the photo id in iCal it should show up when a call comes in. My iPhone does not do that - is there a preference that needs to be checked or something that gets this to work?
Does the photo of the person show un in your Contacts app on the iPhone?
I think it has to be a photo that is in your Photos collection. I think when it is just a tiny icon that is part of the contact it works differently.
Can I create custom fields and use them for "mail merges" for auto document assembly?
Possibly. Try it.
Thank you very much for your dedication to Apple products and to our community. I wish you and your loved ones a safe and festive holiday season.
In addition to birthdays which then show up on ical, it would be nice to have other important dates, such as anniversary, show up on ical as well. Right now I have cheated by inserting the anniversary date in the birthday field. Is there another way of doing it?
