when I add a new calendar entry in Trello for a card it does not update in Google calendar.
it only works when i create a new URL iCalendar-Feed and then add a new calendar in google. then all entries are shown.
if i then add a new calendar entry in trello, again, it will not show in google calendar.
I read that google only updates about once a day, but i created the entries yesterday and can still not see them in google calendar.
thanks for helping
The process can be a bit finnicky at times, sometimes you'll see it sooner, sometimes later. It all depends on when Google pings the server for the updates.
I would recommend using a 3rd party called Cronofy for Trello to sync your board to your calendar. Cronofy is a bit more reliable, and allows for quicker updates than iCal.
Hope that helps!
I am running into the same issue. I appreciate the insights you shared with Andrea, but do you know when the Trello team will be able to address this bug? I rarely have syncing issues when I add other calendars to my Google Calendar via URL (eg. Outlook) though you're right, it's not always instantaneous. I have given trello 24 hours to sync and it hasn't. The only way to sync the calendar is to remove it and add it back via the URL. I use Trello and Google Calendar extensively to manage tasks and projects, so having them integrate properly is super important.
Can you please let us know when you plan to have a fix?
I am having the same issue too. Without refreshing the url, I tried removing and adding again the trello url to my Google Calendar and I did not have the last entry though I expected it to retrieve last entries directly as it is requesting it at first at the registration of the calendar.
It looks more like a Trello issue as the provided url does not provide the last entries, but when you regenerate a new url, it works fine.
Even the same happened with my whole team as well. After removal of date from trello cards (which would be already sync with google calendar through powerup and showing on particular calendar dates) would still display as it is even if we remove date from trello card.
Ideally when we add date to trello card then a link of this trello card will be shown on particular date on google calender which should be disappeared from calender once we remove date from trello.
I don't know whether it will be disappeared after sometime from calender or will never disappear.
Let's wait and watch.
+1. We've experimented with Cronofy and Planyway to pull all of our cards in, but you'd think Trello would show it natively. We use Sunsama to show our Google Calendar side-by-side with our Trello cards, but it still lacks actually showing *all* of our Trello cards on the calendar. Maybe something to build in the future.
I've got a quite comprehensive and helpful answer from Atlassian staff, and they highlighted me that the sync issue is not because of their service. The calendar system (such as Google Calendar) is responsible for polling the information, Trello cannot affect its behavior. But...
I thought that Cronofy is a paying service. Yes, it is, but not the power-up in Trello. So, you can turn on the Cronofy power-up, and it's free (at least one power-up per board).
And yes, it does everything and a little bit more than I wanted. Highly recommended. Thank you to this forum, to Atlassian / Trello support, and mostly to the Cronofy team that you helped me to find a solution to keep Trello and my Google Calendar synced.
The tool is AWESOME!
Synchronisation goes both ways between Google Calendar and Trello. You can even edit your cards from Google Calendar (due time and content), and it updates instantly on Trello.
Also, you don't need anymore to create a separate calendar on Google for Trello. You can choose to populate a current calendar so that the result is more homogenous.
This made my day!
Agreed this is worth fixing. The calendar integration opens up the potential to build in accurate and useful visibility of cards/tasks stored in Trello in Google Calendar, but this information can not currently be relied upon due to the unpredictability of the displayed information in Google Calendar, deeming the feature essentially useless in its current state.
Hard to believe Trello has 100+ power-ups (known as apps for other Atlassian products) to choose from, enabling us to collaborate with teams and organize our work and personal lives more efficie...
