When creating a calendar event on the BlackBerry 10 smartphone and pressing on the calendar drop-down (to select the calendar that the event will be created in), the Gmail calendar is not available as an option.

Note: This will only impact Gmail Calendar accounts integrated as CalDAV.

This is a previously reported issue that is being investigated by our development team. A resolution is currently unavailable.

The Gmail calendar may appear in the drop down after 24 hours.

If the account is a Google Apps account, see KB33472 to integrate your account using ActiveSync. 

CollapseAdditional Information

Do not remove the Gmail Calendar in order to workaround this issue, as doing so could lead to being unable 
to integrate the Gmail Calendar at all. See KB33458 for more information.
