new.lds.org calendar syncing issues

Postby jbh001 » Sun Aug 29, 2010 5:59 am

I started a separate thread to focus just this topic.

I suspect there is a problem with new calendar because when I look at the Bishop Overview page under Leader and Clerk Resources section of the beta site, it is no longer bringing in calendar items as it was before.
In trying to update the link in iCal, copying the the new link provided by new.lds.org into the appropriate spot in iCal yields the following error: "The data downloaded from [link redacted] isn’t valid."

My iPhone is also unable to validate the new link provided.

I ran into the same error trying to use the link in Google Calendar.

I have a similar error when trying to sync with Outlook. It says that the Internet calendar is invalid.

I couldn't find a feedback link on the new calendar page, and my search of the tech.lds.org/jira website did not show that this has been reported, so I reported it as a bug.

This is a known issue that is being worked on. Should resolve automatically with a refresh to a web service that the calendar relies on. Thanks

Not sure exactly what this means. Can you elaborate? Is this a work around? Thanks.

It sounds to me like he's referring to a server at CHQ that supports the calendar and not something at the user (client) side of things.

error message

Postby opee » Tue Sep 21, 2010 8:38 pm

Here is an image of the error message that I get. I did some searching on some forums and it appears that one culprit may be reoccurring appointments. One user had simple appointments and it synched fine, but after adding a reoccurring appointment, it gave these errors...

Calendar syncing but too many emails

Postby mmacconnell » Thu Sep 30, 2010 6:18 am

It appears as if the syncing is working now with my gmail calendar. I have, however noticed a new problem. Every few hours I am getting emails on every event which is amounting to over 180 emails every few hours.
