    I have been using caldav to sync my google calendar with ical. I was wondering if anyone has been able to change your events from google calendar to another in ical. I tried and every time it just gives me the option of the calendar that the event is created in.

    CalDAV: moving or copying between collections; presenting in multiple collections

    Google's implementation is peculiar: each collection (calendar) is treated as a separate account. This separation becomes clear after you use Calaboration to configure iCal.

    I might not expect a CalDAV client such as Calendar in iPhone OS 3.0 to work around this type of peculiarity.

    To move from one collection to another, without regard for accounts: use iCal in Mac OS X.

    To copy from one collection to another: use iCal, with the alt (option) key. The effect is duplication; a change in one copy is not effective in the other.

    To have a single item in multiple collections: use Chandler Desktop.

    Just tried Calaboration and it worked perfectly. Thanks for the info.
