But what of those such as my associate who doesn't use Office 365 and relies solely on Gmail free?
Hopefully we are referring to the same thing.

My  point is if you or your associate already uses the desktop software and you are offering an option to sync, in my opinion, you are better off suggesting to to switch to office 365 version with the desktop software option.  Not only does this keep you up to date with the latest version, it also ads many other benefits and one of those is the ability to sync and install on up to 5 of your devices including your mobile.

If your associate is not part of your domain, then you can send and receive appointment/event requests that will get added to your calendar.

Hi Scott,

Hopefully we are referring to the same thing.
I hope we are too because some of your suggestions are starting to appear circular to me and already discussed?

My  point is if you or your associate already uses the desktop software and you are offering an option to sync, in my opinion, you are better off suggesting to to switch to office 365 version with the desktop software option.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but here's you're suggesting I should tell him to buy himself an Office 365 Subscription, are you not?

Despite there being non-business Office 365 subscriptions available for home users which are (in my view) so affordable that I have difficulty understanding why almost everyone isn't using 365 in one fashion or another, "he" chooses not to. Perhaps he's not willing to pay for any sort of recurring subscription at all? Or perhaps he just dislikes or doesn't trust Microsoft to the point where he won't even consider buying a standalone version of Microsoft Office or Outlook? But his reasons in this scenario don't really matter.

Indeed, if memory serves, from earlier conversations with him I recall him telling me that he chooses to use Libre Office as his desktop Office Suite solution and so far as I'm concerned, that's his choice and fine. I don't think it would be appropriate for me to suggest he reach into his pocket to purchase an Office 365 subscription just to satisfy my needs of him being able to continue setting appointments and tasks into "my" calendar. He uses Google free, I use Google free, so the answer is already there - the syncing issue was "my" problem, not his. You disagree?

Not only does this keep you up to date with the latest version, it also ads many other benefits and one of those is the ability to sync and install on up to 5 of your devices including your mobile.
Whether or not I agree with you here is not the point. Your argument for using the solution should be taken up with him - not me. But no, I will not reveal his identity and have no idea if he's even following this discussion.

If your associate is not part of your domain, then you can send and receive appointment/event requests that will get added to your calendar.
He's not a part of my domain and does everything online related to the calendar issue in Google. That all works, but since Google removed the option for their Free subscribers to use the Gmail/Outlook synchronizing tool to all but paid subscribers of their G-Suite package, then I can tell you from bitter personal experience that while it's still possible to synchronize via workarounds (some of which you yourself pointed out), time zones will not synchronize correctly, hence the reason I asked for expert help at this forum in the first place, and the eventual finding of the Sync2 solution which resolved the problem completely.

I think we've gone the full circle. Of have I missed your point completely?  :)

Regards, Andrew
