FIXED -Sync showing calendars not subscribed

Postby dgpapenfuss » Sun Jan 20, 2013 9:22 pm

My google calendar is showing calendars that I am not subscribed to, such as Young Women. When I view the calendar on LDS.org, I do not see the Young Women events. But when I view the calendar in google, I see the Young Women events.

I have unsubscribed to the Young Women calendar. I can't even see it on the Calendars to subscribe list (because I have unsubscribed so its not listed). By the way, its confusing to have two types of subscription lists. On both lists, I have the Young Women calendar unselected, yet it shows up on Google.

A couple of things: First, only the actual subscription page controls what goes into the sync. Not the checkboxes on the main page. (But I think you know that.)

Secondly, Google syncs about once a day. If you happened to have subscribed to the YW calender at that time so you could see all the events, that would explain it.

As it stands now, you'll probably have to wait about a day to see if things goes back to normal.

Couldn't wait till tomorrow, I found the immediate fix in the help files. For google to see the changes immediately I had to unsubscribe, then resubscribe to the LDS calendar in google, (complete remove the calendar and change the sync url). If I had waited, that probably would have worked too. The additional fix is to ensure your subscriptions are correct.
