Google calendar does not synchronize/update when new calendar entry is made in Trello


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

Hey Andrea

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!

Thanks Matthew! I will try it and post how it worked....possibly next week rather than today.

Have a nice weekend!

Hi Matthew. I installed cronofy yesterday and connected the relevant calendars, but still not all entries from Trello are shown  in google calendar. Do you have another idea?


Now the entries finally appeared! But it took more than 24 h i think. In any case that is better than never :)

Thanks again, Matthew!
