In gmail I have 5 calendars so as to color "categorize" my appointments: Uncategorized, Work, Play, Appointments, Misc

In iCal I could setup the Uncategorized calendar, and had to set the other 4 as "delegate" calendars. They seem to show up fine in iCal this way.

But, when I sync with my iPhone I can only sync the main "Uncategorized" calendar. I cannot sync any of the delgate calendars.

Any idea how to do this? Is there a better way to "categorize" appointments?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.7), NA

    I have the same exact problem. Need the delegate calendars to sync with my iphone

    Same deal here. I'd love to either be able to have either:
    - my Google "delegate" calendars sync'd from my desktop when I dock
    - have the same with over-the-air sync (either mobile me or bluetooth)
    - have mobile me support for multiple calendars and sharing/subscribing (with push of course)

    Yes, what is going on here? I have the same annoying problem.
  • Jeffason Level 1 Level 1
    I think i found the issue.

    Go to m.google.com/sync and select the other calendars!

    Well, that's /an/ approach, but doing so means reconfiguring to make Google be the master (the "system of record") for your address book and calendar data.

    This is not what I want, and probably not what others want, since the iPhone's integrated calendar and address book features are really good, and have other benefits like sync over mobile me and the ability to make changes on the phone which are immediately reflected all over.

    Thanks for the tip, but I'm going to hold out for a native solution.

    There is no need to wait till you dock. Changes to the delegate calendars on my laptop or desktop change my google calendar

    - have the same with over-the-air sync (either mobile me or bluetooth)

    I am not sure what problems you have, but it doesn't matter which device I modify any calendar whether delegate or not ( the google calendar site, my iphone, desktop, laptop ) the changes are made almost instantly to all devices.

    Jeffason, would you mind checking your iPhone (or iPod) sync settings in iTunes? In the Info tab, under the Calendars section, do your "Delegates" calendars show up? Mine do not, for me, and I'm not able to get any calendars from Google Calendar aside from the main one onto my iPod touch.
  • Jeffason Level 1 Level 1
    itunes says the calendars being synced with exchange
  • madaboy Level 1 Level 1
    Yeah because other calenders don't work with iPhone except Uncategorized for some stupid reason
  • Jeffason Level 1 Level 1
    Go to m.google.com/sync and select the other calendars!
  • Jeffason Level 1 Level 1
    ...from your iphone
  • aburgman Level 1 Level 1
    Thanks. Hmm... Doesn't apply to my situation (iPod touch, going from Google Calendar to iPod through iCal) but glad it's working for you.

    no solution here, but for what it's worth... same problem here
  • anomoly Level 1 Level 1
    Hi all. The good news is that it looks like a solution exists with the iPhone 3.0 software, which will be generally available next week...

    3.0 supports CalDAV, and as such you can subscribe directly to any single Google calendar that you normally can access, with full writability from the native calendar app.

    Only hitch is that it doesn't give you delegates "for free" like the desktop iCal does. Instead, you have to set up a subscription for each one individually supplying your google username/password and the URL:

    https://www.google.com/calendar/dav/<CALENDER ID>/user

    ... where <CALENDAR ID> is a long unreadable mishmesh which is taken from the calendar's Details>Settings>Address field

    Fortunately, 3.0 also provides copy/paste, so you can work out the long URL on your desktop, and mail it to yourself for pasting into the field.

    Cheers!
