Todoist calender does not update in Google Calendar


I linked the Todoist calendar to my Google calendars and then could get the Todoist tasks to show up in the calendars on my mobile devices. However, when I edit the Todoist tasks or delete them, the changes are not updated in Google Calendar. As a result they also don't update in my mobile calendars. I am stuck looking at out of date tasks that I can't edit or remove from Google calendars.
How do I get Google Calendar to refresh tasks from Todoist?

Hello Peter,

Unfortunately, Google is updating the calendar only once a day. This is a setting on their end for all iCal feeds and even though our feed updates in realtime and you would see all changes on any other calendar software, Google will only update it once every 24 hours.

We're sorry for the inconvenience, we hope they will change this one day and we're also going to implement our own calendar module within Todoist as an alternative.

Best regards,

Thanks for the prompt reply. Now that I know it's updated once a day, I can work with that. Todoist is an excellent service.
