Has anyone noticed any differences in syncing calendars to Fantastical between say Google or iCloud. It seems to be an ongoing issue now that every 3-6 months I contact them for the same thing. It’s always the same story. Device A either has duplicated events, but Device B and Device C don’t have the duplicates. For the record this happens specially with a shared calendar. Would the experience be better if it was synced from iCloud instead of Google?
Edit Update: I checked the actual Google accounts that are being shared, all the accounts in Fantastical.
Web - Correct sync
Mac - Correct sync
iPhone - Correct sync
iPad Pro / iPad Mini - Duplicate Issues
Curious how they are having you fix it. I’ve occasionally had one device fail to sync, and sometimes the Google API endpoint they use will error or go down, which causes issues depending on how well Fantastical recovers. It hasn’t been as often or consistent as what you’re experiencing, though. Using the local versions of the calendars won’t work as well as connecting to Google directly.
I am compared setups to all devices, all the same. The data resides only on Google.
What’s interesting about the sync issue. It’s a share calendar, the calendar is full of events and repeating events. The only ‘duplication issue’ is being caused by a single repeating event showing up 2x in Fantastical. (Imagine a weekly Tuesday meeting at 6pm). The rest of the calendar is fine except for that particular event.
Fantastical responded back, they were able to fix it on 1 device so far, the iPad Mini, still waiting on the fix for the iPad Pro.
I was told to go to the Settings of Fantastical, ‘pull up 4 times’, and then a Debug menu would appear, tap on ‘options’ and then tap on ‘reset sync states’. This worked on the iPad Mini, no luck so far on the iPad Pro.
The calendar in question is a joint shared calendar.
