We use Google suite for calendars and email. We're trying out DoItBetter Calendar, and are running into two problems:
Does anyone know what's going on here and how to fix it? We have a similar problem with Team Calendars in general, and have a very fragile setup right now that syncs between Team Calendars and Google Calendar (but which requires a manual restart/reconnection about once a week); I am looking to make that more robust and resilient.
We are currently experiencing problems with the Google API request limit, so please PM me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your instance URL address so that I can immediately and forcefully enable 2-way sync for you. Please accept my apologies for the inconvenience.
Sync will be enabled for everyone, including new instances, starting next week.
By the way, I thought/assumed the issue was that the ICS URL generated when exporting didn't update its content after a change in events.
However, checking the ICS file, it does inmediately! It's just Google not syncing, which I now guess it's the API issue you mentioned?
So in other words, another Calendar that grabs that ICS file frequently will update events as expected, right? (eg. if I were to implement an ICS viewer somewhere)
Unfortunately, ICS exports at unpredictable times; according to Google's documentation, this time can be up to 6 hours, which is extremely long. As a result, we created our synchronization service using the Google API, which, unlike ics, works in both directions. https://doitbe.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/CFJC/pages/1867743233/2-way+sync+with+Google+Calendar
I'll also post here when we enable sync for all instances.
