How do I get synch with Google calendar to work?

G

When I copy the URL into Google calendar in order to synch as instructed, I get an error message telling me it's not a valid address. I can't get it to accept the link and synch.

Hello Greg,

Please copy/paste the link as instructed and you will see a yellow message at the top saying "Importing from URL". When you see that message, please close the calendar and don't wait for it to sync.

After a while (shouldn't take longer than an hour), you can re-open the calendar and all data should be synced by then as Google will automatically retry multiple times if the calendar isn't opened.


Best regards,
David

No, I can't get this far. I don't get the yellow message saying "Importing from URL." When I paste the URL and hit enter, I get an error message saying "[URL] is not a valid email address." That's it. I've tried innumerable times, I upgraded to the latest IE, I tried it in Firefox.

Greg,

Unfortunately, we can't reproduce this issue. Please make sure that you copy/paste the entire URL of the iCal feed. WHen you click on it once, it should be fully selected and then try to copy it by right-clicking and choosing "Copy" from the context menu (not with Ctrl+C).


Best regards,
David

I'm getting the same response. This is what it says...

The address that you provided did not contain a calendar in a valid iCal or GData format.

So how do we get the iCal format?

Hello Kristin,

Unfortunately, we can't reproduce this issue.

When you copy the iCal feed URL from Todoist, please make sure that the entire URL is selected. Try to left-click on it once which will automatically select the full URL. Then try to paste it to the notepad to make sure it is complete.

Next, use the "Add from URL" option in the calendar and when you'll see the yellow "Importing from URL" message at the top, close the calendar. It will automatically sync after some time.


Best regards,
David
