Re: BB10 sync with Google calendar and Contacts

Odd is not the four letter word I was yelling as I couldn't see my appointments for the upcoming week.

What is your general setup?

 

Do you have two-factor auth set up? Do you have any shared calendars? Are you using ActiveSync or CalDAV? When you check your account in the Accounts pane of settings, does it show any authentication error? It could be possible that authentication failed after some time and so the entries would be removed from your device.

No 2 step authorization set up. No shared calendar. Set it up using caldav, when I tried the active sync I get the error message saying my account can not be verified. And if  the authentication failed it wasn't after some time, it was after 1 day.

Re: BB10 sync with Google calendar and Contacts

So then if you were to delete the account now (presuming that it's online but nothing is in your calendar) and re-add it, it would all disappear again by tomorrow?

Also, swipe down from the top in the calendar app, tap manage calendars, and make sure that the one you're interested in didn't accidentally get unchecked from the list.

Re: BB10 sync with Google calendar and Contacts

I can't find where to do this set of instructions.  My Google Calendar does not seem to have these options.

Re: BB10 sync with Google calendar and Contacts

Entries that were added to Google Calendar via the "Add by URL" feature are not showing up on my Z10... solution?

Re: BB10 sync with Google calendar and Contacts

Can you please clarify what you mean by "Add by URL"? Anything that gets added to GCal on their servers should end up being synced to your phone (and vice versa) in due time (depends on how often you've set it to sync).

Click on "Add by URL" in the "Other Calendars" box located at the bottom of the menu on the left.

Re: BB10 sync with Google calendar and Contacts

Oh, it seems that Google's CalDAV service only serves up calendars under the "My Calendars" section. I'm not aware of a solution, sorry.
