Google Calendar Sync locked my team out

My team can’t edit my Google Calendar anymore. Why? Because it says that it has been edited too many times by the syncing software I’m running (which is both Plaxo and Google’s own service). It was working perfectly until I added Google’s own syncing software. I’ve now changed the number of times that I’m going to sync to see if it lets my team members back onto my calendar. It still is letting me edit it, but Rocky hasn’t been able to edit it for the past day.

Anyway, be warned if you’re testing out syncing systems like Plaxo or Google’s.

UPDATE: A Google engineer wrote me and said that they don’t recommend using Google’s Calendar Sync with other sync systems like Plaxo.

Plaxo is better than new Google Calendar sync

Google just came out with a new sync system for Google Calendar. That’s pretty good. It will sync your calendar in Outlook up with your online calendar on Google.

But if you have Plaxo I don’t see what this brings you. Plaxo syncs with more systems, not just Outlook and Google (I use Plaxo on my Mac too, so my iPhone’s calendar is always sync’ed up with my Google Calendar and Outlook.

What do you think? Why aren’t you syncing your calendars?
