vueminder & zoho calendar

Post by bronson » Fri Mar 05, 2021 9:31 am

am testing vueminder and trying to set it up to sync with my zoho calendar. the only way seems to using ical. I am able to get appointments from zoho, but when I try to change or make an appointment, I get a server error 400 "bad request." I'm assuming then that the problem is on their end? but is there something I can do or I've contacted zoho, but I'm wondering if there's something I can tell them to help fix this issue.

thanks

Hi bronson, welcome to the forums. Zoho can sync 2-way with Google Calendar. VueMinder can also sync 2-way with Google Calendar. This means you could keep Zoho and VueMinder in sync by using Google Calendar as a pass-through. I think that would work better than trying to sync 2-way with an iCalendar URL.

To configure Zoho to sync with Google Calendar, see the page linked below:
https://www.zoho.com/calendar/help/goog ... -sync.html

To add the synced calendar to VueMinder, use the "File -> Add Calendar -> Add Google Calendar" menu command in VueMinder. Make sure you set the sync direction to "2-way", so changes you make in VueMinder will sync back to Zoho.

I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

There's no mechanism to 2-way sync with Zoho through an iCalendar URL. If you don't want to sync through Google Calendar, you could sync through Outlook.com or Microsoft 365 instead. It's the same concept.
