Syncs are problematic

Postby ChiefCalendar » Fri Feb 17, 2017 4:08 am

I'm currently testing Vueminder as an all-in-one solution for my calendaring needs. I try to sync an exchange calendar, a couple google calendars and some other ics based things.

Each calendar has maybe a few hundred to few thousand of events. All calendars also get changed outside of vueminder through other applications or by other people.

It seems there is a particular problem with recurring meetings that get changed and will not sync properly. This problem happens with both the google and exchange calendars. For example, the event has been updated in outlook, the ICS file produced by Exchange has the change, vueminder will leave the original in place and not show the updated time slot.

Removing and re-adding the calendar sometimes resolves the issue, sometimes not. Even if it would work , removing/readding calendars is an unacceptable workaround if I have to do this every two days.

What are my options to resolve the issues I am experiencing? Is there something obvious I am overlooking.

Hi ChiefCalendar, welcome to the forums. I'm not sure why you're seeing a problem with changes to recurring meetings not syncing properly. I'll investigate further and I'll work on fixing this in the next version.

Thanks for looking into it.

If you need more information, let me know.

I can probably put together some screenshots of examples if that would be helpful.
