  1. I am not having a problem with the spotlight search, it finds my events. It is the calendar itself keeps showing no results even when I can see them on the page. I have the very latest update Monterey 12.3.1 How do I fix it? I need that search and it works on my phone, just not on my new MacBookPro

    1. I have exactly the same problem (also a new MacBook Pro). Calendar search works on my iPhone but not on my laptop. Did you find a solution?

  2. From DDJac on Apple Support, January 2022:

    Ok, I found a workaround in some other thread and it worked for me: Rebuild the Spotlight Index

    Apple already published this workaround for another issue and this procedure also rebuilds the calendar search index:

    Basically it works like this:
    open System Preferences, then click Spotlight
    click the Privacy tab
    add the main harddisk of your Mac to the list of items which should be excluded from the indexing process.
    close System Preferences
    reboot the mac
    then: do the same steps and remove the harddisk form the list
    reboot the mac again and the rebuild the spotlight index process starts (internally)

    As I understand, these steps “force” to rebuild the spotlight index which then includes the calendar entries.
    The rebuild takes a while so don’t expect to get search results immediately.

    But this procedure worked for me!

    1. THANK YOU!!! I have just upgraded to a new MacBook and inexplicably losing the calendar search function messed up a whole bunch of tasks for me.

      This was so helpful and fixed my issue very quickly!
