iCal feed does not work


I've upgraded to Premium and followed the instructions on ToDoIst settings to add the iCal feed, and cut and pasted the exact URL into Google Calendar. This was in the Safari browser on a new iMac. It did not work.

The Google error message was: The address that you provided did not contain a calendar in a valid iCal or GData format.

Beta testing results:

The ToDoIst settings refer to: https://ext.todoist.com..... (etc).

The ToDoIst Help video refers to: webcal://todoist.com.... (etc).

Neither works in Safari on an iMac.

I tried again in Google Calendar using IE11 on a Windows 7 machine.

The https:// setting still does not work.

The webcal:// setting DOES work.

Hello John,

Unfortunately, there are indeed some issues with Google Calendar that we're aware of. Usually, adding the URL and then closing the calendar right-away without waiting for it to sync and opening it later can bypass them. We will look into optimizing the feed in the future, though or other alternative ways to sync tasks with Google's Calendar.

Best regards,
