Subscribed calenders

Post by rjm01 » Fri Jun 17, 2011 6:30 pm

I have a subscribed calender that loses some of the events when I restart the computer. I copy the address, delete the calender, make a new calender and reinsert the address and every thing reappears. Help? It is a google calender that I subscribe to as this is the only way I seem to get access to the calender. It supposedly is a shared calender, but google does not let this happen. All the permissions are initially set to share, but these seem to disappear soon after the fact.

Thanks.

Hmm, I'm not sure why the events would disappear like that. Are you subscribing to the ICS feed? If so, maybe try the "Add Google Calendar" command on the File menu to attach to the Google Calendar, instead of subscribing to the ICS feed.

The Google calender seems to lose its permissions so I have subscribed to the ics feed which has been working. The other thing I did was a manual back up after I restored the calender and so far it seems to be working. VM was picking up deleted events from the Google calender and these were corrected prior to the back-up. I suspect it is a Google problem but I thought I would let you know.

Thanks

Still losing the data. have to restore manually to the previous best set. Google calender is not changing but VM data set is.

The funny part is I am just losing events on Saturdays. All the rest are fine.

Hi John, are those Saturday events recurring, or is there anything different about those events? I'm not sure it has anything to do with events happening on Saturday. I think Google Calendar might be setting the wrong recurrence data in the ICS feed, but that's just a guess. I haven't been able to duplicate the problem.

Just so you know, it works fine in the the Lightning addon for the Mozilla Thunderbird calender.
