    I have synched iCal with Google Calendar and it seems that it is working fine. The items do synch. But I get this annoying message very often that the URL is incorrect (screenshot attached). How do I fix it?

    I tried deleting the account and adding again, but it did not fix the problem.

    Thanks!

    A) Can you post that beautiful wallpaper? :)

    B) Do you know if that is the same URL you've used in the past?

    How many devices do you have synching with Google Calendar? Google only allows one connection at a time to your calendars. If one device is currently synching, it won't allow another connection and that error is the result.

    I was not aware of that. That is a strange limitation don't you think? Can you be using the web interface and a syncing device at the same time?

    It is a strange limitation. As far as I know, you can be on the web interface as many times as you want. The limitation only exists with the CalDAV protocol on Google's end.

    I have attached the wallpaper. ;)

    I deleted the account and added again so I guess it would update with a new URL?:rolleyes:

    I use google calendar on my Note 3 smartphone.
    Also wanted to use it here on my MBP and it seems it is working; just very annoying to receive these messages.

    What other calendar services would you recommend?
    I tried iCal as my calendar, but for some reason it did not send email notifications (maybe because I am not using the Mail app as my client).

    Google calendar, even though used in iCal does send email notifications as well as Note 3 Android notifications.

    Thanks!:)

    Google is one of the better calendar services. How often do you have your machine checking the calendar for updates? You may have to extend the time to 15 or 30 minutes.

    MBP iCal's default is 15 min (lowest value). I just changed to one hour; will see if this fixes the issue.

    Thanks!
