Applications :: ICal - Cannot Edit Events (Converted From Outlook)

Apr 27, 2009

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.

Applications :: ICal - Multi Day Events Span Multi Days In Month View

Apr 27, 2007

If I have an event, starting on Friday, going on Saturday and and finishing Sunday, is it not possible to get this to show in the month view? I know it shows up in the weekly view, but it would be more helpful for me to have it up show up like this so I can get an overview of the month's forthcoming events. Or if it, are there any mods/addons etc that can enable this?

Applications :: Adding Alerts To Subscribed Calendars In ICal / Customizing Calender Alerts

Oct 4, 2009

Okay, I've subscribed to a couple of calendars in iCal, including birthdays from Address Book, but I'm completely stumped. If I want to receive an alert when one of these items is coming up, then what do I do?

I don't want to rely on alerts being added at to the subscription itself, I want to be able to customise on my end when I get an alert for an entry, and when or what that alert will be. Is this possible? I don't see any options for it. If not, anyone know of any good alternative calendar applications that are like iCal?

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.

Jun 17, 2010

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.

Applications :: How To View Publicly Published Google Calendar Events In ICal

Jan 3, 2011

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.

OS X :: How Can I Create ICal Events Without Having ICal Open?

Nov 9, 2010

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.

Are there any other solutions out there?

Software :: ICal Alerts And Sync - Get Two Message From Machines?

Sep 24, 2007

I use Sync on two machines to keep iCal on both synchronized. It works fine, except for one small annoyance. Sometimes I create an alert attached to a calendar entry, to send me e-mail sometime before the event. And, yes, I get two messages, one from each machine.

Applications :: Immediately Open Edit Window In ICal Upon Creation Of New Event?

Apr 20, 2010

One thing that annoys me about iCal is that when I hit the shortcut to create a new event, I have to hit another shortcut to bring up the edit window. Ideally the edit window would pop up immediately upon creation of a new event, but I can't find a way to make this happen.

Does anyone know a work-around for this?

Another annoying thing is that I can't just hit Cmd-N to open a new event; I have to make sure I'm in a calendar that can be edited before creating a new event. I don't think there's a fix for this; I think it's just one of those things.

I searched for info about this, but I didn't find anything.
