Onedrive

Post by MobyUK » Tue Sep 09, 2014 6:40 am

Hi. Just wondered if it's possble to have my calendars on Onedrive so I can access form two laptops. As it's only me, there wouldn't be an issue of two people trying to modify at the same time.

Hi Moby, you could configure VueMinder on your computers to 2-way sync with an iCalendar (ics) file located on OneDrive.

To enable this, open the Calendar Properties by double-clicking your calendar's name. Click the "Sync" tab and then check the box for 2-way syncing with a file or URL. Click the "..." button on the right side of the file location field, and then enter a file name in your OneDrive folder. Click the Save button and then click the OK button. The calendar will be published to OneDrive.

Wait a few minutes and then repeat these steps on your other computer(s), but select the existing file on OneDrive instead of entering a new file name when specifying the file location to sync with.

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

The only problem is, if I mark an event as completed on one device, that doesn't show on the other.

Hi Moby, the completion status doesn't currently sync through ics files. I'll add an option to make the completion status sync, and will post a reply when this option is available.

If you share through MySQL Server instead of OneDrive, there is currently an option to share completion status. See the page linked below for instructions on syncing through MySQL Server:

Hi Dan. Never had any luck with MySQL, hence wanting to "cloud" it.

WIll look forward to you adding this option as it would take away the only remaining problem.

Cheers
Moby

Hi Moby, nothing to report yet. I'm currently working on the next major release, which will contain many requested improvements.
