google calendar problem

I have an iPhone that has a googleapps domain setup on it under, settings, mail, contacts, calendars.  I've tried setting up the account as a traditional gmail account as well as a caldav account.  The problem is...

i open the calendar app and schedule an appointment under my main,default, calendar in google and save it
i go in the appointment a few seconds later, and change the calendar that the appointment is on, perhaps from my calendar to the family events calendar.
everything, looks perfect on the iPhone, however, if i look at my calendar on the google website, it shows up as the appointment being on both calendars.  Its like when i modified which calendar the event should have been on, that change to remove the appointment from the original calendar never got sent back up to google or google is misinterpreting it

Please help me fix this, its driving me crazy.

Tom,

I can recreate the issue using the native iOS Calendar app.  I believe you have found a bug in the way the iOS app handles Calendar changes with Google Calendar.  

The appointment moves to the new calendar, but is not removed from the old calendar.

I can reproduce the issue whether or not the initial calendar is mine.

On the iPhone, did you configure your Google Apps calendar with the native Calendar app or are you using Google's app?

Do you have all of the calendars setup on the app?  Can you view multiple calendars on the screen?

yes, all calendars are setup in the app.  Let me try and give you detailed list of events..


user opens calendar app on iPhone
user creates event on calendar 1

user opens calendar from browser on full laptop on gmail website
user can see appointment that was created on iPhone on appropriate calendar

user then decides to change the calendar that that specific appointment is on
user opens calendar all on iPhone
user finds event on calendar 1
user edits event and changes event to be on calendar 2
event is displayed properly in calendar app, it only shows on calendar 2

however, user then signs onto calendar from laptop on gmails website later on, the event is listed on BOTH calendars.  it should only be on calendar 2 at this point.

This problem is recreateable every time!

This issue relates to who owns the event and whether or not the change is only a local change for that user (web interface warns you, iPhone cal app does not).

The move from cal 1 to cal 2 is not creating a delete request to Google Calendar to remove it from Cal 1.

Allen,

I don't think that is completely accurate.  I just logged into my google calendar from a macbook.  created a test appointment on calendar 1 and saved it.  Went back in and modified the appointment to be on calendar 2 and saved it.  I did not get any warning / pop up when making the modification of the web interface.

This is really strange.  Surely more people must be experiencing this.

Thank you,
Tom
