Problems with Google Calendar web side
 
Good morning
I have a problem with SyncML and google calendar
The synchronization between the server and the mobile phone is good
but the events are not displayed in the web side of the Google calendar
Since the last update, all the events are sent in the mobile phone as
"undecided", and these are the events that have the problem (all the events
I create on the web are correctly displayed on the phone)
Is there a way to solve the problem?
Thank you very much
Simone

We've seen that too high security settings of the browser will not display all elements of Google calendar. Try with another browser, e.g. Firefox or Safari

I have tried with several browsers (Safari, Chrome, IE, Mozilla) and different
security settings, but it didn't work, I can't still see the events
Is there a way to set all the synced events as accepted?
Best regards

A problem seems to be that server UIDs will hamper the Google Calendar sync. First we thought this has been fixed in Android 2.2, but this is not the case.

There is a new release 2.1.1 of the Synthesis app for Android since today (23.8.2011), which will not force UIDs into the gmail accounts any more (with some restrictions for recurring events with exceptions). There is a switch in the calendar settings however which still allows to force UIDs to the calendar. For non-gmail accounts the default setting is on anyway.

Thank you very much for your answer; as I am not a skilled user, could you please explain what does the UID do and what is the best setting?
Best regards

Re: Problems with Google Calendar web side
 
UIDs are common identifiers for recurrence events with exceptions (to recognize them as one group of events)

Just use the default settings (off for gmail accounts = Google Calendar, on for all other calendars).

More detailed description can be found in the current documentation on page 15.

Hello
it seems there are some new problems related to this post: I noticed
that in the last days on Google calendar website now some events
have duplicate or even triplicate entries, while in my outlook are fine and
even in my smartphone
Could it be a problem with the UID again?
Thank you very much

Re: Problems with Google Calendar web side
 
- Are these duplicates rrule events or exceptions ?

- Which version of the Synthesis app are you currently using ?
(V2.6.6 is the current release)

- The forcing UID switch for gmail is on or off ?

Kind Regards
Beat

Hello

- what do you mean for "rrule events or exceptions"?
- I am using the last version of Synthesis app
- the forcing UID switch for gmail is off

Thanks
Simone

Re: Problems with Google Calendar web side
 
hi simone

rrule (recurrence) events are events with repetition (e.g. weekly or monthly)

exceptions are specific dates to these recurrence events where an entry is changed or deleted.

the UID is reference between rrule events and its exceptions.

the UID switch must be off due to bugs in the Android gmail system.
That's why I'm asking.

Unfortunately (due to gmail bugs) the gmail system sometimes will not see deletions on the Android calendar items. so I assume you have to remove them manually on gmail side.

Beat

Re: Problems with Google Calendar web side
 
hi Beat
the duplicated events are simple meetings with one or more people, not recurring
events; I have the problem just on few events, and it is difficult to find something
in common on these events

Simone

Re: Problems with Google Calendar web side
 
Hello
it happened again; after syncing, all the appointments of today
duplicated; if it can help, I had to manually sync two times, the first
one I got an error message 514
Regards
Simone
