Google Calendar Sync Issues

Hi there, I’ve successfully linked my Tidbyt to my google calendar, but my Tidbyt keeps showing “No more meetings :)” despite more events on my calendar. Is this a settings issue or did I set it up wrong? I would love any help I can get on this!

Sometimes we struggle with specific calendars. Could you please send me a DM with the ID of your device and I can take a look?

The device ID is available via Settings > General > Get API key.

Hi Rohan,

Thanks for the help. Because I’m new, I can’t send a PM, but I think I can reply to one. Can you shoot me a PM and I can send back my ID?

Thanks!
Matt

Done. And I’ll also go get rid of the silly restriction :slight_smile:

Hi @rohan and team, thanks for being so prompt and proactive about addressing this.

I found my way to this thread because I too am having the same issue; were you able to make any headway and/or know more about the possible culprits? My calendars are hosted by a premium email provider and I’ve setup sharing permissions to allow Google to subscribe to those 6+ calendars. I’ve also connected to the Tidbyt and installed the Google Calendar app but that’s where my luck runs out with the same clock icon.

You mentioned calendar names: fwiw, each of my calendars has an emoji in the title/resultant URL for subscribing. Maybe that’s the problem?

Cheers!

Hi there,
I have the same problem and found following:
All events originally set up in a different calender than Google (e.g. Outlook) and then synced with Google will not be transferred to Tidbyt.
All events set up directly in Google will be transferred to Tidbyt.
Would be great having everything transferred to Tidbyt (or direct transfer from Outlook etc.).

Hi.

Just received my Tidbyt earlier this week (loving it, btw) but my calendars are also not syncing as has been described (I already have them being synced to Google from Outlook). They’re visible in the Google Calendar app on my laptop and phone but only events created in Google Calendar seem to be visible on the Tidbyt.

Thanks, PAUL

Hey all, still working on this. There are a lot of edge cases with various calendars.

I am having the same issue. No events are showing up - always ‘No More Meetings’. What should I do?

I too am having this issue.

The ‘issue’ seems to be that it only knows about ‘My Calendar’ in Google calendars, and then only the main calendar associated with the email. I’ve tested Tasks and Reminders (also listed under ‘My Calendar’) but they don’t register with the Tidbyt app either.

You can export your outlook calendar as a CSV and import it directly to your google calendar. That adds all the events directly to ‘your’ calendar in Google, and that pops up on the tidbyt like it’s supposed to.

The trouble is that it’s static. It’ll only do reoccurrences up to a certain date range because it’s a csv and if any meetings change during the day, you’d have to do another manual export/import.

So that’s what’s going on: Tidbyt seems to only be subscribed to the main google calendar, rather than being able to see all calendars that the google account is subscribed to. I don’t know enough about how google calendars work, but I’m not sure that’s something we’ll be able to fix on the tidbyt app side, since I anticipate the Tidbyt app is basically just subscribing to the google calendar the same way we’re subscribing to the outlook calendar.

I anticipate the best thing will be either to have an outlook specific app, OR an app that processes a published calendar URL like google or outlook use to subscribe to each other. But again, I don’t know enough about the backend mechanisms to know how easy (or hard) this is to do.

Did we ever come through with a solution to integrate subscribed calendars?
