Publishing/Subscribing and Duplicates

However, if your Calendarsync app is also publishing and subscribing the same calendar, it's possible you could end up with duplicate events when you delete events from within VueMinder due to incompatibilities with how deleted events are now synced.

You could probably work around this problem by deleting the events on your Android device rather than from within VueMinder. You could also sync through Google Calendar, which should work perfectly in version 11.0.
Tried V11, and have seen the earlier problem reappear. Even old events that had previously been deleted (and had stayed deleted when I reverted to 10.1.19) have now reappeared (just as they did with 10.2 beta)

I then tried deleting those reappeared (and sometimes duplicated ) events from Android (the Calendarsync app had not been changed recently), but they reappeared on Vueminder.

I will revert back to 10.1.19 for now, I had been reticent about using Google Calendar due to what seemed to be a number of issues with it, and annoyingly the current sync process that I have has worked flawlessly with 10.1 (all versions). But things change .....

Have now migrated to Google Calendar - once all devices have been done, I will report back.

Hi Ian, I'll add an option when publishing/subscribing calendars so they will handled deleted events like they did in v10, which will maintain compatibility with external syncing tools. I'll let you know when this improvement is completed.

I've moved all devices over to sync with Google Calendar - all seem OK now on V11 - thanks for your help

Sorry Dan, I edited my post and have now gone over to using Google Calendar for syncing - all working fine across three PCs and two android phones.

But thanks for the excellent and responsive support there. :)
