Support forumCategory: BugsGoogle syncs issue with invitation/guests
Martin asked 3 months ago

Hi,
I’ve been using the plugin for a little while, also with easy-connect. Works great except for one very important thing, maybe it’s a setting somewhere or you have a way to by-pass.

If I create a normal event in Google calendar, it is synced and the time slot is not available in the plugin, all good. I then invite guests (attendees) to the event = fine.
But if I create an event and also invite guests while I’m creating the event, for some reason the plugin doesn’t see the event?! If I remove the guests afterwards, it still doesn’t sync… It’s the same problem if I get invited to an event. I accept the invitation and it’s in my Google Calendar but EA shows me available for that period.

Any ideas? We work a lot by invitation so we really need to fix this.
 
Thanks!

Hi Martin, can you please tell me is that Event in Google Calendar as any other Event? Is it in same Calendar? There must be something special about that event that is keeping EA from importing it.

Best regards,
Nikola

Hi Nikola, Yes, it is in my calendar. But I just noticed something different you’re right. If someone gets invited to an event and accepts it, the event shows in the calendar of the invited person but it’s still linked to the organizer’s calendar not the other person’s calendar… see screenshot. Would you have a way to check all the invitations while syncing the calendar?
In this example, i’m checking my own calendar (martin.votresite@gmail.com). I got invited to this event by rendez-vous@votresite.ca. As you can see, the event is showing as linked to rendez-vous@votresite.ca’s calendar.
Thank you!

Hi Martin, thanks for screen shot. We will check Google docs for listing those events as well.

Best regards,
