Hello David,

There may be an issue due to server overload. Please follow the instructions in the video to the point where you add the feed to Google. At this moment, you will probably see a yellow message at the top saying "Importing from URL". When you do, please don't wait for it to sync, but close the calendar. Google will then attempt to synchronize it automatically and within 24 hours your tasks should be synced.

Best regards,

Hi David,

I tried 3 time to import the iClendar, but it always prompts with a message "it failes to ....". Could you help ?
btw, why the icalendar url changed when I open the todoist settngs ? Is it right ?

Hi Li,

Please try the following steps listed below:

1. Try subscribing to the URL
2. When you see the calendar being added on the right, close the tab
3. Go back to it after an hour

If this doesn't help, please let me know. Also note that it takes a few minutes before your tasks populates in Google Calendar.
