Support forumCategory: QuestionsGoogle Calendar Sync
dave.brill asked 1 week ago

I am seeing inconsistencies with the 2 way sync with Google Calendar.  There are times when adding entries into the calendar everything syncs and is fine, other times entries don’t show up.
I have the same email address in the two workers that owns the calendars.  I have default services configured.  I have 7 days set to sync.  The advanced calendars are set to the different workers.
I am hosted WP on GoDaddy and using cron-job.org every 5 minutes.

When it syncs….everything works great…..but the challenge is that its not consistent.
Any help would be great.

The log files show the 5 minute sync with nothing to sync even after new appointments were added.

Hi Dave,

from log file looks like it has pull 3 new events from Google Calendar. Under GoDaddy you should have Cron settings option in CPanel. Using build in cron is far better option than external one.

Best regards,
Nikola
