    Having trouble setting up a sync between ICal and Gmail (first time).

    I am using Mac Calendar vs 7 and Android 4.4.4.

    I believe I have followed the procedure correctly at : ?

    I can receive the calendar from Google to Mac but not the other way. That is, iCal reads saved calendar entries i make using Android and Google (ie in gmail), but entries saved in iCal are not synced at gmail. :eek:

    Any solutions to this problem greatly appreciated!

    Have you checked to see whether the events created on the Mac are being saved to the Google calendar, or to a different calendar? Check the default account setting in Mac Calendar preferences, and the calendar to which the missing events were assigned.

    Im not exactly sure how i would determine "default", but in Mac Calendar -> Preferences -> under Accounts and Google CalDAV (which is enabled) I press Edit Account —> in Google account i have everything checked including Calendars.
