Applications :: Unable To Sync Events In Ical / Not Syncing From Ical To Google
Mar 29, 2010
Trying to get them to talk to each other - I've input the Google account into iCal preferences, and it shows up fine. But I seem only able to sync one way - if I add an appointment in Google Calendar - then sync - it shows up fine in iCal. But if I add an event in iCal and then sync - it doesn't show up on the Google Calandar.
After hours of research, I'm finally making a thread about this. It's very simpleI know you can sync Google Calendars(GC) with iCal, so anything you change on your GC will sync to iCal, but I need a way to do the opposite. iCal››Google Calendar.
I know there is a $60 service that does this, but there must be a free way! I've had no luck searching Google for answers... Why I want to sync with GC is because I want my family to be able to see my calendars, but I don't like using GC, I much rather enjoy using iCal. Much nicer user interface; unlike Google which is very bland. (As is Google's way) Anyone able to help me out?
I just used the ical calibration tool to sync ical up with my google calendar and it works like a charm. I love how i can just click on dates in Mail and add them to my iCal which then pushes i to google calendar for my wife to see...that way i can sneak tennis or a round of golf in and she can't say she didn't know
At any rate-i would like to know if there's a way to pull her cal stuff to my ical. I can see all of her stuff on my google calendar, but i dont have the "right" to add her account to ical. I assume i could just have her enter in her login info - but i would like to know if that's the best way.
I use iCal together with MobileMe and I have noticed that none of my subscribed calendars sync with MobileMe/iPhone. I installed Delicious Library a couple of weeks ago (which places a subscribed calendar in iCal) and that syncs but not my others, such as "Birthdays" (through AddressBook) or my RememberTheMilk ones
I belong to a club and shortly they are moving to Google Calendar as a way of publishing their events on-line. From what I have read else where, it is possible for them to publish their events publicly, so that they are searchable and anyone can add them to their own Google calendar.
Would it then be possible for me to view their public Google calendar in iCal? If not, could I achieve the same out come by setting up my own intermediate Google Calendar, which took the clubs feed, and then use iCal to view that? I don't wish to share information back, just add their info to my own calendar automatically. So that if an event is added/deleted or changed, my calendar is automatically updated when I view it.
Everytime I upload that ical backup file... nothing happens in google calendar. It does nothing in Firefox... and safari I just get 0 was transferred. I just want to bring over my calendar to google. Does anyone know what is going on? Anything I am missing?
am having trouble trying to get my iCal to sync with my Google calendar. I want it so when i make changes to either ical or google calendar it automatically updates the other one. Anyone have any ideas on how to do this?
i had looked at the option to publish my iCal calendar but when i click on calendar in iCal to choose "send publish email" it is greyed out.
I set up the syncing through CalDav but in iCal it creates a new calendar (which is the Google Calendar). Would I have to delete my original calendar called "Home" and just make the Google Calendar (in iCal) my main calendar? Does it do a good job of syncing both ways? Also, if I do this, does it also sync through MobileMe?
I've followed the tutorials online to sync my Google Calendar with my iCal.The problem however, is that, after doing so, only the calendars that are in Google Calendar are synced.What I mean is that lets say I create a calendar called Birthday in iCal. This would not appear in my Google Calendar! To fix this, I actually have to create the calendar in Google, then sync it!
I know that you can add Google Calendar to your iCal this way. Is there a better way? I just don't like how it is a separate calendar instead of syncing with the calendars I already have in iCal, I guess I'm looking for something that will sync my existing calendars on iCal with Google Cal similar to what Mobile Me does. Any suggestions or should I just try tailoring the above method to what I want it to do?
All of a sudden, my iCal will not sync with iCloud. My iPhone still syncs, and events put into iCal on my phone push to my Mac, but not vice versa. iCal on my Mac SAYS it's "Updating", I'm not getting any error messages, but any new events put into iCal on my Mac do not update via iCloud. What happened?

I am trying to set something up for my wife and myself in which she has full read-write access to my iPhone/iCal calendar and I have the same for her calendars...
I know that at one point in the past I came across a tutorial that showed how this could be done using Google's free Calaboration application, but strangely I've not been able to find this tutorial since, nor can I find any tutorials that go over all of the steps to accomplish this task.
I've used SpanningSync and BusySync in the past, but had issues with each of them, and I would really appreciate any suggestions that anyone has that DO NOT involve the use of either of these paid third-party sync apps...
Anyone try it yet? It's integrated now, but I'm not sure if it's just simplifying setup or actually syncing with a new mechanism. Hopefully the latter, the way they suggested setting it up previously didn't work very well.
I try not to have iCal running because I've got the Dateline app that stays on my desktop. Mousing over that will give me appts and such as I need to have them.
I've found, that opening iCal and messing with the input screen for a new event is kind of cumbersome, and I'm wondering if folks have found a good way to create new iCal events w minimal interaction with iCal itself.
Today 2.5 offers this as a feature, but it's $25. Macworld also had a tip, but running that Automator action opens up iCal in the background.
I installed GCALdaemon to sync iCAL with Google. Everything went well until I came to this: Put a colored label on all folders in '~/Library/Application Support/iCal/Sources'. open ~/Library/Application Support/iCal/Sources
Terminal ********:~ Roody$ open ~/Library/Application Support/iCal/Sources The files /Users/Roody/Library/Application and /Users/Roody/Support/iCal/Sources do not exist.
URL You can know sync iCal (Leopard) with Google Calendar without 3rd party software.Updated NotesiPhone/iPod Touch 2.0 currently does not support CalDAV.If you're having trouble authenticating your password, quick iCal and relaunch.
I'm trying to set up some automated reporting from my computer to my email when I'm out of the office. I've got the applescript set up to run when I send an email, but I'm trying to make it automated every hour or 30 minutes or something. Someone recommended iCal- I've got it able to run the script on each event, but I can't figure out how to make an event recur hourly.
I've just switched to mac and have a beginner's question: Although I selected a strong red color for my work calendar, the events are only shown in a transparent red. This actually applies to all calendars. Is there a possibility to see the full colors i.o non-transparent?
I cannot find how to edit events in iCal. I should be able to "double click it" and then click Edit. However, no "edit" button appears. Please note: this is a repeating event - is it not possible to edit them? This is needed for a monthly meeting that occurs at different places, so each individual instance should be editable with particulars for that event. Also, these events were converted from Outlook on Windows.
I've been trying to import some iCal calendars into Google recently, and I keep getting notices that "Calendar is not available. Please try again in a few minutes." The problem is that I've been trying to do this for the past three nights off and on for a few hours while working on other things.
I've done everything right from the iCal end (File-->Export), so I can't figure out what the problem might be.If anyone could try the same thing or let me know what the issue might be, I would really appreciate it.
I have about 3 to 5 events, things I need to do, etc., on each day in iCal. My problem is that I have no way to make them "Complete". I want to be able to put a strike-threw or something showing that I have done it. Currently, there is no way to see on the cal if I did something or not. Is someone going to need to make a add-on for iCal or something?
