    Hi There,

    I'm having a lot of trouble syncing and editing calendar entries across devices.

    I have a caldav account setup across my macbook and iPad to sync with google. I have 2 calendars, one personal and one for work.

    When i add an entry on iCal, it will not sync to iPad or google calendar.
    When i add an entry on iPad, it will not sync to macbook or google calendar.
    When i add an entry on google calendar from gmail itself, they all sync fine.

    I can add and edit event details on iPad, details will be fine on iPad, but wont sync.
    When i try to add or edit which google calendar a particular entry should be applied to in iCal, as soon as i press apply, the calendar entry reverts back to the way it was before i edited it.
    For example on iCal: I add an entry into my personal calendar (my.name@gmail.com) and it will add on iCal, but not sync to gmail. When i want to edit the name, or most importantly want to add or change an entry to my work calendar, it just reverts back to my.name@gmail.com.

    This is really annoying as the only way i can sync my calendars is to add everything into gmails calendar section, and we all know how clunky that is.

    Can anyone help?

    When you say it won't update.....how long are you waiting? What type of refresh schedule do you have fetch set to?
