subscribe to google calendar does some weird stuff

I created a recurring appointment in google calendar, then changed a
couple of its individual occurrences.

GroupWise happily subscribes to the calendar, but it displays all of the
original occurrences, as well as the individually-rescheduled ones.

Did I do something wrong? How does GroupWise get items that aren't even
on the calendar anymore?

Re: subscribe to google calendar does some weird stuff

Hi Mary

I doubt that you have done anything wrong.

As far as I can remember there were issues with modifying instances of recurring appointments when interfacing with an Exchange server. I wouldn't be surprised if this is what you are seeing.

If you are on R2 I strongly suggest that you get onto SP 1 as soon as possible. Then perhaps unsubscribe and resubscribe and test.

Please let us know how it goes.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley

Installed the new client just now and resubscribed to that calendar, but
alas, I still see the "old" appointments.

Re: subscribe to google calendar does some weird stuff

Hi Mary

To be honest I am not sure if the issue sits with the client, but what do I know! What I'm saying is that I can't remember if any other components come into play.

Thanks for reporting back. There is the possibility that this is a bug, but you'd need to open a SR for engineering to take a look.

Re: subscribe to google calendar does some weird stuff

I've not been able to see anything via Google Calendar (basics.ics) subscriptions for probably a year or more. If I browse to the link I can get the ics file fine so from the google end everything is fine, but groupwise refuses to show anything and I get a lovely little red cross next to the calendar icon in the menu to show me it's not happy and a status of "Unknown component name"

However, we are still on GW12.0.3 - so it may be something to do with old ssl methods being used that are no longer support < TLS for example.

Mark.

Re: subscribe to google calendar does some weird stuff

Hi Mary,

Have you heard anything back on your SR? I'm very interested to know what engineering says about this one.

Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Cheers,
