iCal Feed Does Not Update

I have added a Todoist iCal feed to my Google calendar but no events show up. We have tried several times and waited several days to see if it would update. Each time we have not had a single task/appointment show on the calendar.

At this point I'm ready to give up unless I can get the iCal feed working as the zapier workaround is problematic at best.

Additionally, the most recent time we tried to set up iCal we got the following error:

Failed to import calendar from "https://ext.todoist.com/Export/icalTodoist?user_id=2290007&csrf_token=133d9e677d654e49e53f0b9f70e156cc&r_factor=5378"

Are these tasks shared with other people? Only your tasks or tasks assigned to you will show up in the calendar feed.

Some are, but the majority are not. There are numerous tasks with assigned dates that are not shared in anyway.

Hello Lucas,

Please remove all already added instances of the calendar, then try to add one again, but don't wait for it to sync at all, just add it and close the tab or the browser. Google should then sync everything within a day at most. It seems to have an issue with the initial sync.

This worked. Thanks for the help.
