OS X :: Unable To Upload Ical Backup File / Not Exporting ICal To Google Calendar
Jul 22, 2009
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?
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.
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.
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.
I have encountered a problem with consolidating and migrating my calendars to iCloud. Previously I had been using MobileMe, but like a lot of iOS device users, I had made the mistake of also synching calendars and contacts locally. This had the effect of creating an "on my mac" calendar, which I did not realize for quite some time that I had been using.
In the process of migrating my MobileMe account to iCloud, I realized this and set about uploading the local calendar to iCloud. I used the following procedure:
1. Highlight the "on my mac" calendar and export it to an ics file.
2. From iCal, select File>Import and select the ics file I had just created
3. In the window that opens, selecting one of the iCloud calendars to import the events into
However, what I find is that the calendar hardly imports any of its hundreds of events. I rely on this calendar to keep track of events that I attended in the past, but it seems like no events in this local calendar prior to January 1, 2012 got imported into iCloud. I don't want to try and re-import it, since that might create duplicates of the events that have already succesfully imported.
Is iCloud not allowing me to import old events? Is there a way I can import the entire calendar to iCloud?
I need to upload just the months September 2008-June 2009 to a website. Actually, I'd prefer to save this file in some way to send to someone else to upload. I can't seem to find a way to do this! Can this be done w/Ical? If not, does anyone know what software I can use to do this (Word now uses Entourage when I try to make a calendar with it & I have the same problem w/Entourage!) We don't need/want to upload the whole calendar.
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!
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
One of several calendars was accidentally deleted from the desktop. It is still present on the iPad and backed up to the desktop. Additionally, the iPad version can no longer be edited, copied or moved.

ICal has decided it won't allow any more new Events, not from invoking New Event from the File menu and not from entering directly into the calendar itself. On click-drag in the calendar, a little box opens, just as though I were about to be able to enter a new Event, but on releasing the trackpad button, the box disappears.
I'm trying to order a calendar in iPhoto '11 for my grandmother. I've did this as part of her Christmas gift the last three years. I added everyone in my family's birthday into an iCal calendar years ago.
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.
I want to migrate from my iTunes account to my MobileMe/iCloud account. But before I can do that, I need to create a backup of my calendars. My problem is though, that iCal constantly freezes when I'm saving the backup file (via File > Export > iCal Archive…) and I have to force quit it after a while.

I've made a calendar in iCal organizing the shift roster for 4 people at my work. Its a security job, so there are 'Day' shifts and 'Night' shifts. Starting at 5.00AM and 5.00PM respectively and running for 12 hours.
The problem I am running into occurs when I go to print. Instead of having the nice layout that it does in the actual editable calendar where it just says Day and Night (image 1), it is adding the times of the shifts (image 2).
What I am trying to be able to do is simply print out the calendar as it appears in the program in the first place. Anyone know how to do this?
I've used iCal for several years and love it. I have a moblileme subscription. I sync among an ipad, an iphone and two macs. Usually everything works great. Latest version of everything.
This morning I notice that on my MBP, only my business calendar is showing in ical. The personal one is there, and its box is checked, but none of the events are showing up.
The personal events are still there on my iphone and on [URL]. I just opened up the Calendar app on the ipad, and I watched some new personal events for today appear. So they are "out there." How do I get them to show up on my MBP?
