Activity permissions

I'm getting insufficient permissions for the component: 
Insufficient permissions for Activity component
I can't find any reason why. I thought it was because this can't live alongside Activity History related lists, but I made sure we weren't using those. Now I can't figure out how to display this.

Hi Holly,
I am assuming your profile has access to event fields,record types

Thank you, Sakshi for your answers. Unfortunately, these answers are related to related lists, not the lightning component. It is the lightning component that is showing the permissions issues.

This is a standard lightning component right?

Hi Holly, did you ever get this resolved?  I'm seeing the same thing in a sandbox environment and it isn't making sense.  I'm a system administrator so why don't I have permissions to see this component?

No, I never resolved it.  However, this was occurring in a sandbox we made for the client. Back in the main dev environment it works fine. We think we might be able to sort this out once Summer 19 is live.

Has this been resolved? This is happening with one user in Production but their SandBox is fine.

Just in case anyone else is having the same problem I spent most of the say trying to resolve this issue and then came across this post which solved the problem for me:

Basically under Record Page Settings in Setup, the Activity Timeline View needs to be selected!

I spent all day trying to solve this as well ( I think it was caused by my recent Linkedin Navigatior installation?).  Thanks so much for saving me from 5 more hours of guessing.

Another place to check is the users own Record Page Settings...they must have Activity Timeline selected as their default.
