I wanted to publish an iCal Calender in Goggle Calendar. This worked for me perfect with different calendars.

Now I´m getting a report from Google. Bildschirmfoto 2011-10-14 um 16.47.57.jpg


Any help or suggestions!

    I'm getting the same problem ever since I moved over to iCloud.  Is it possible with the new changes?  Any help would be much appreciated.

    Yeah. I feel your pain. I called Apple yesterday about this very issue and they acknowledged that it was a problem. I guess we'll just have to wait and see if Apple and Google find a way to work this out...

    I find a solution!! :-)


    Delete your submisions in google or ical!

    Create new calenders in Google!

    Now set up Sync with a new CalDAV. This is described within Goggles Support Docs.


    This now works better and without bugs! Also with iPhone


    Best wishes

    Thanks. I appreciate the reply. But I still have a couple of issues with this solution...


    1. It works to get google calendars onto my iPhone (very nice) but doesn't sync with iCloud.com

    2. I want to go the OTHER way, and sync a calendar from my iPhone to google calendar.


    Any clue how to deal with those issues?



  • blueprintfilmuk Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Yep, same here.  I already use Google Cal and CalDav to sync my personal calendar, but at work everyone has iPhones and Macs so use iCal through iCloud.  I want to be able to read those calendars and won't be able to move them all over to Google just so that I can access them on my Android phone.  I used to be able to read them on Google Cal, but the iCloud messed it all up.

    According to Google: "Setting up iCloud sync has caused events to be wiped from Google Calendar for some of our users who were syncing information between iCal and Google Calendar. In response, we've stopped deleting the information until this issue is fixed. Until further notice, deleting any event in iCal will not remove this event from Google Calendar (for iCal 4 users, all changes made after a delete attempt will not be saved in Google Calendar). We've contacted Apple and we are actively working on this. We're also attempting to restore the deleted events. Thanks for bringing this to our attention, we'll keep you posted. As a workaround, we suggest you remove event in the Web version of Google Calendar (calendar.google.com). This change would be properly synced with your iCal."

    I recently called Apple technical support for a problem I was having syncing my iCloud calendar with Google calendars. I copied the iCloud calendar URL and pasted it into Google's import box and got this error:


    Could not fetch the url because robots.txt prevents us from crawling the url.


    The ridiculous thing about this is that the very same calendar can easily be shared with a Yahoo calendar.


    The guy at Apple's technical support was actually very friendly and helpful. He immediately understood the problem and took a couple seconds to see that he could easily reproduce the problem as well.


    He told me he'd send a report on to engineering.


    A couple weeks later, he got back to me and stated that Engineering acknowledged that this was an issue but they had no intention of addressing the problem.


    I use iCal for my personal calendar and want to be able to import that into my work's google calendars. Unfortunately, according to Apple, I won't be able to do this simple task.


    Sure would appreciate some guidance or suggestions here.


    Thanks so much.

    With the "icaltogcal" website/workaround resolution - have you ever seen (recognize problem) with Google response "We could not parse the calendar at the url requested."? Appreciate your help, if possible...  You seem to have the ONLY truly "understanding" solution...
