Can't add an appointment to a Google calendar

I have set up Google calendar accounts on my Playbook, which lets me view my appointments. But, when I try to add an appointment, the Google calendars are greyed out, so I can't add anything to them. Is it possible to add an appointment to a Google calendar?

 

Thank you!

Re: Can't add an appointment to a Google calendar

When did you add the account? Have you added it as a caldav acct? Gmail dropped sync services for non-android devices on Dec 14 for calendar sync and Jan 30th for Google sync. New accounts now have to be set up as imap, CalDAV and CardDAV separately - also gmail settings need to have imap enabled (not sure if additional settings for caldav and CardDAV)

Re: Can't add an appointment to a Google calendar

I added it as a Caldav account using the extremely complicated instructions online (typing in the long calendar id and the URL). The calendars synchronize to the Playbook fine, now. But I can't add any new appointments to the calendars. There's no message to say what I'm doing wrong. The only option I get is to add an appointment to the "Local" calendar on the device, but then it doesn't get put into the Google calendar. I can't understand why it won't work.

The update to the Playbook OS yesterday fixed this problem (and a few others as well). Thank you, it's working now!
