syncing issues with google calendar
I want my todoist tasks to show up in my google calendar, and they are, but sometimes it's taking a LONG time for this to happen. How frequently does sync occur? How quickly should I see my tasks in my Google calendar.
I tried redoing the feed and as soon as it did my new stuff showed up in google calendar. But then I had duplicate feeds. When I removed the duplicate, it seemed to be slow again.

Unfortunately, Google only updates the calendar feeds once a day, so it can seem like awhile for things to update on your Calender.
At this time there is not much we can do, as it's a limitation with Google, but we do hope to find a better solution in the future.

I don't know how to sync my todoist with my google calendar. Can you help?
Yes I can :) Just head to http://www.todoist.com and in the top right corner click on the gear icon --> Settings.
From that new pop-up there should be an iCal Feed URL at the bottom of it, if you click on this once, then right click and copy, you will then be able to paste that into Google Calendar.
When you do this, once Google Calendar shows a yellow "Importing.." message at the top of the window, close it and return to it later. This way it will complete the sync.
Let me know if you need more explanation :)
The sync should work as Google allows it, that is - the changes you make in Todoist will be synced once a day. We're still looking into alternative solution to work around this limitation, but for now this is the only option for our iCal feed.
