Could use some help with this one. I've got iCal synching properly with Google Calendar and I've got Outlook setup to sync (via Sync Services) with iCal but the data never comes across into Outlook. I've checked and rechecked the sync services setup in Outlook and it looks fine. Any idea why it isn't able to pull the data from iCal? Thanks for any ideas.


Mac OS X (10.7.2)

    No one? Am I the only one having this issue? It's very strange.

    I remember doing a Microsoft update in the last week or so.  It seems that my calendar stopped syncing at that point.  I have Outlook pushing my Calendar to iCal and then I have busy sync publishing my iCal up to Google.  My Outlook is not pushing anything anymore.  I've tried removing sync services and re-adding them.  Nothing...

    So you can see the sync services and they appear to be working but just aren't? That sounds like I'm in the same boat. I wish someone would chime in with some ideas. I need this resolved, too.

    So NO ONE has ANY IDEA on this?? This is crazy. Does this sync just not work from Outlook to iCal? Do I need to bring this up on the Microsoft forums to get more feedback? I've got to have a solution to this ASAP. ical.jpg

    This is what I have but it is NOT synching. Ideas? Snide remarks? Do I need to use iSync or iTunes specifically to make this actually sync? I thought "sync services" meant it was a program that actually synched?

    My way around this was to add an Exchange account to iCal.  So now I get my calendar in both places.  The only thing that ***** about that is invites.  I get double invites.  But as I stated in an earlier post, I'm using BusySync to push my Exchange calendar to my google account.  So I just ignor the Exchange account when I'm in iCal and just look at the sync'd Gmail calendar.  That was my way around it.  Also, I've tried this on both Snow Leopard AND Lion.  So it's not just a mountain lion thing.  Funny thing happened after all this messing around.  I shut my system down and rebooted everything.  The next time i opened iCal my sync'd outlook calendar was working again.

     

    I'm pretty sure it was the microsoft update that did it.  But apparently a reboot did something.  You might have better luck posting this on a Microsoft forum.  Or you can give my BusySync solution a try...  Good Luck!

    Same issue here!  I updated too and the same thing has happened.

    I think the microsoft update must be the issue as it seems too much of a coincidence.  How can I undo the latest Microsoft Office update on my Mac?

    Same issue - after the Microsoft update I actioned yesterday :-(

    GHow do I back out of the update?  It said it was critical - but I think the only thing critical to me right now is that they have mucked up my ability to schedule!

    If you do find out anything please post it on here!

    Unfortunately this client doesn't use an Exchange account on a local network. Does iCal allow you to connect to Exchange via RCP over HTTP? If not, I'm sunk with BusySync and Exchange.
