    Question How often does Google Sync sync calendar?

    I have a question - I've searched the forums but haven't found this specific answer. If someone has already answered it, please feel free to delete this post!

    Okay, on to the question...

    I downloaded Google Sync to sync to my Google Calendar - and WOW it's awesome, and I love how it syncs to my BB Calendar. I love to be able to edit my Gcal on my laptop before I leave the house, then have it on my BB during the day. Pretty slick!

    I set my settings on my Gsync to "sync automatically" but I haven't seen it sync by itself. Well to be honest, I haven't waited long enough.

    For instance, I add an event on my Gcal from my laptop, and I expected it to sync right away to my BBcal on my phone.

    Does it not work this way? Does "automatically" mean once a day or an hour or what exactly does "automatically" mean in terms of hours/minutes?

    TIA!

    Okay that makes sense, I can wait that long! I looked around on Google but didn't see where it said that.

    Thanks for the reply! Now I won't go crazy waiting around for it to sync

    One more question, just to clarify.. do I have to sign up for mobile notification in Gcal to make it automatically sync, or is that for non-BB phones?

    Hi - I did not sign up for the mobile notification so I believe it automatically syncs by default, If I go to the option on my bb to sync now, I get an answer that it already synced and there are no changes.

    Automatic will sync every two hours, but will sync anytime an appointment is updated or edited on the bb.

    8 AM Google sync will update all entries that were input into the web version
    10 AM ditto
    10:15AM Edited appointment on bb, Google sync will update the web version

    Default Fantastic info - thanks

    Looking for answer to this on Google having just got my first Blackberry today. Good question and great answers, and I have found a super site to help my teething process on my new 'toy'.

    Thanks all.

    I can't get entries made on my BB to show up on the web on google calendar. It works ok when I enter something on the web I guess. As soon as I put in an entry via web I do a manual sync on BB and it shows up just fine. If I add an entry via my BB and do a manual sync it never shows up on the website for google calendar. Any idea what might be causing this?
