I can select it just fine from my m.google.com sync list, but it never shows up on my actual Calendar App.

The other suggestions from this and the other thread both worked well. Thanks.


Yes, I have had success with this. The one that I have had for a long time is the "US Holidays" calendar which I subscribe to. You may be getting it down, but need to tell you iPhone to display it. Try pressing the "Calendars" button in the top left of the app calendar screen, this shows you all calendars that are available and you can put check marks next to the ones you want displayed. Maybe this is obvious, but its the only thing that I can think of that would be the problem if you do have google calendars syncing and you enabled it on m.google.com/sync

While this works, my fear is that those that are using this temporary solution, and that domain, what happens if that domain expires or has another issue? Does the Church own that domain or planning to purchase it? If many rely on this temp solution, it may cause issues down the road. Just a thought. Thanks.

Ultimately, the hope is that the church and/or Google figure out what it takes to make things work. When the temporary domain expires, we all go back to the link that should have worked in the first place.

If you are using the URL from the Sync page of the new Calendar on lds.org, then your experience is typical -- no one seems to be able to get that to work at this point.

But have you tried the Workaround to fix calendar sync problems that is the subject of this thread? That seems to work for most (but not all) people who try it.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

I've tried both the link from the Sync page on lds.org, as well as the workaround. Still can't get it to work for me. I'm posting this just so I can find this thread again when it gets completely fixed. I am SO looking forward to it!

Private-message me and tell me what link you were using for the work-around

The only way it works for me is using the workaround . . . I initially tried using http://, but will try later today on my wife's account using https:// first . . .

Thanks Again . . .

Now check your inbox - I know it's not always obvious when a message is waiting. I've sent a reply telling you which is the correct URL. Google had never made a request for your calendar according to my logs, so try again with the correct URL and see if that works.
