I have been using daylite for the last couple of weeks, but have been unable to figure out how to get my daylite calendar to show up (or sync) on my Google Cal - so I have can see on my Android phone.
Don - thanks - took a couple to find the old version of BusyCal (on BusyCal site under help section). Once set up - works well so far. Solved a big frustration.
Great news, just to add to this thread for others possibly having issues with Google calendars.
Some common things to watch out for.
Google accounts with two-factor authentication enabled; require a single one time password generating for a sync account. More information on Google's two factor authentication can be found here:
Also, note that when changing a Google password, be sure to update all your devices with the new password.
A device still configured with an old password can alert Google's captcha 'human detection' system by persistently attempting to logon in the background to Google services with an incorrect password.
The only way around this, or if you think this might be an issue. Log into your Google account from a web browser instead of the iCal/Calendar application.
The chances are you'll be asked to enter in specific digits from a human only readable graphic. Once this is passed, normal operation should resume.
Incidentally, we have no way of detecting when Google requires a captcha response. This makes it impossible for us to give our customers any prompt or feedback.
It is a necessary mechanism though and further detail can be found on Google's support page here:
Being able to publish a DL calendar to Google is a big enough issue that I may well trash this whole application over it. It would be cheaper than buying everyone in my sales force a MAC. WHEN WILL THERE BE A DEFINITIVE RESOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM?
Seems pretty definitive to me. Daylite 4 uses CalDAV to "publish" a calendar. Google has yet to fully implement CalDAV. To get the two to meet, you need an intermediary like BusyCal (see above).
With all due respect, you need a no longer sold and no longer supported intermediary. That is not a solution. I'd be happy to just publish to I-Cloud, but that isn't trivial either.
For the sake of clarity I want to publish to the icloud web interface...
I have sales people who, while in active conversation with a prospect, need to be able to look at a local manager's published calendar and see that they are free on XXX-day afternoon and so that they can book that time for an appointment with a potential customer.
Are these sales people using Daylite? I'm not as well-versed in using DL in a multi-user situation, but there should be permissions that allow the sales people to see the manager's calendar.
No, they are not. If they were if would be pretty easy. That's why I want to publish to a public calendar program.
If these other users are using iCal, or what is now known as Apple's Calendar app, they can follow the instructions to set up to subscribe to that user's Daylite Calendar. They can add new appointments to that calendar as well but they must make sure that they are adding the appointment to the Daylite calendar (or one of the Daylite category calendars if that option is being used).
As Don has clarified, Google has not implemented the function of subscribing to CalDAV calendars.
Okay, as I see it you have several options:
Thanks for your thoughts and advice. Apparently this is a non-trivial problem, and perhaps I am the only person with an issue.
Don, you left out one option: Trash my investment in Daylite (both time and money) and move to an online CRM - pay for the core users and get the others a courtesy account.
Thanks again all.
