How do I import my iCal events to my Gmail account so I can use them with GoogleSync?
Hey that just adds my Gmail calendar to iCal. Im wanting to do the opposite.
I use BusySync from BusyMac. Works great, but not free.
I thought it did two way sync.
EDIT: It does, I added an event in iCal and it appeared on my Google Calendar.
Nothing is showing up on my Gmail account. Do you know what i could be doing wrong?
Did you follow all the steps for iCal?
It didnt really give me any steps to follow. Maybe I should try again.
What are these steps like?
You do have Leopard, right?
To set up CalDAV support for Google Calendar in Apple's iCal, follow these steps:
Download the set-up tool here.
Open the tool and enter your Google Account username and password.
Click Sign in.
Select the calendars you'd like to add to iCal (Note you may only add calendars for which you have ownership privileges), and click Add to iCal.
Add your email address to your Address Book card by selecting Add Email. You'll be prompted to add your email address only if your address is not already in your Address Book.
You won't be able to invite or email guests to Google Calendar events within iCal if your address is not in your Address Book.
Your Google Calendar will now appear in iCal's list of calendars, and changes you make to your Google Calendar calendars in iCal will show up in Google Calendar.
Event information will automatically refresh every 5 minutes. You can change this interval by opening the iCal > Preferences > Accounts menu and selecting a new refresh interval under the 'Refresh calendars' drop-down. Keep in mind you can also force a refresh by selecting a calendar and pressing the Apple and R keys at the same time.
Remember, you can only add calendars that you're allowed to make changes to in Google Calendar.
Calendars that are checked but disabled have already been added to iCal - you can remove them from within iCal.
