Posted on 2011-04-27

I have a client who has a HTC Android
He wanted his phone to sync up with outlook on his office PC
So we installed the Google Calendar sync on his PC

Now if he puts an entry on his outlook calendar it will sync and go to his googkle calendar and come up on his phone.

However if he adds an entry on his phone it does not go threw to even the Google Calendar

All the settings are correct on his phone, as well as the sync on his PC ( it is set to 2 way)

Any ideas why this is happening?

    Android phones have multiple calendars, he's probably not working with the Google Calendar.

    You can see all the calendars all the time, but when you add an event you need to decide which calendar to add it to.

    Open the Calendar app, then press Menu, then More, then Calendars, and deselect all but the one Google Calendar that you're using.

    "PC Sync" being ticked does not mean "Sync with PC", it is a second calendar which runs on the phone.

    "PC Sync" is where your appointments that do not sync with your Google Calendar are stored.

    Note the colours shown beside the Google Calendar and the PC Sync calendar in the Calendar>Menu>More>Calendars screen: the appointments that don't sync with Google Calendar will share the same colour as the PC Sync calendar.

    To sync "PC Sync" calendar entries you'll need to use the HTC Sync software from - but I don't recommend it, it's terrible software.

    Instead, deselect the PC Sync calendar and use only the Google one.  That way, the sync to Google Calendar will be complete, and as you said, Google Calendar syncs with Outlook Calendar anyway.
