Multiple calendars 1way sync with Outlook

Postby slouw » Thu Aug 10, 2017 5:50 pm

Hi there
I have 4 calendars all setup with 1way to Outlook.
Only 1 works.
Should all of them work?
Is there a limitation perhaps?
thanks for any replies

Hi slouw, do you recall when you enabled syncing of the calendars? Was it before updating to version 2017.03? There was a bug in the previous version which resulting in calendars not being added to Outlook when syncing was enabled for an existing calendar in VueMinder. If that sounds like what happened, then please try these steps:

1. In VueMinder, open the Calendar Properties of a calendar that isn't syncing. You can open the Calendar Properties by double-clicking the calendar's name.
2. On the Sync tab, check the box labeled "Do not sync".
3. Click the OK button.
4. Re-open the Calendar Properties.
5. On the Sync tab, check the box labeled "Sync with Microsoft Outlook".
6. Click the OK button.
7. Right-click the calendar's name and select "Sync Calendar". The Status Bar will indicate the calendar is syncing. If the calendar contains a lot of events, this might take a few seconds.
8. In Outlook, you should see a new calendar has been added a subfolder under the "Calendar" folder on your default Outlook account profile.
9. Repeat for the other calendars that aren't syncing.

Please let me know if that doesn't fix it.

Hmm, that's odd. It should work. I haven't been able to replicate the problem on my end. I'll investigate further. In the meantime, please try this workaround:
1. In VueMinder, backup your current data using the "File -> Backup Data" menu command.
2. Export your calendar to an ICS file using the "File -> Export -> Export Events" menu command.
3. After exporting the calendar, right-click the calendar and select "Delete Calendar".
4. In Outlook, create a new calendar.
5. Drag-and-drop the ICS file onto the new calendar in Outlook.
6. In VueMinder, use the "File -> Add Calendar -> Add Local Outlook Calendar" to re-add the calendar to VueMinder. You should see the calendar in the list and it should sync properly after being added.

If these steps don't work, you can use the "File -> Restore Data" menu command to recover the checkpoint generated in step 1.
