Ticket #23135 Public

Synced event times from GoogleCal aren't correct.

Hello. I just installed the Sync addon and set everything up to sync from google calendar. For some reason the event times are showing 5 hours later than the google calendar displays. My time zone in settings>general shows a local time that is correct but the UTC was off by 5 so now I have the current time set to UTC-5. The times are still not changing so wondering what to do. Thanks!

      Do you know what time zone your google calendar is on? because if that timezone is different from what your website is set at the offset in times can cause this.

    • By: justinmichau Jan 23,2017 AT 9:33AM - Posted 5 years ago - #24787

      My timezone is set to Eastern and my wordpress is set to New York. Not sure what else to try.

      Ok, I think I’ve figured it out. For some reason the calendar I’m sharing from Google Calender is set to GMT and it’s greyed out. I can’t change it. Trying to figure that out now.

    • By: justinmichau Jan 23,2017 AT 11:37AM - Posted 5 years ago - #24808

      should the items “refresh” when I hit fetch events? I’m trying all kinds of changes and cant get it to move the times at all. How does it refresh?

    • By: Ashan Perera Jan 23,2017 AT 2:02PM - Posted 5 years ago - #24848

      I am glad yu figured out the timezone difference. At the moment unfortunately you can not change the time to offset.

      But what you can do at the moment is after you import click on the time field and that should allow you to edit the time.


    • By: justinmichau Jan 23,2017 AT 2:05PM - Posted 5 years ago - #24850

      No, I’m wondering how to “refresh” all those events if I’m making changes in Google Calendar? i have 250. thats a lot to change the date on.

    • By: Ashan Perera Jan 23,2017 AT 2:35PM - Posted 5 years ago - #24855

      I am sorry what do you mean by refresh? refresh already fetched events ?

    • By: justinmichau Jan 23,2017 AT 2:36PM - Posted 5 years ago - #24856

      Yes, otherwise I can’t tell if any of the changes I’m making in google calendar are doing anything.

    • By: Ashan Perera Jan 24,2017 AT 9:48AM - Posted 5 years ago - #25095

      you should be able to select update already fetched events in sync page.


    • By: justinmichau Jan 24,2017 AT 10:43AM - Posted 5 years ago - #25126

      I clicked that box. How does it update the items?

    • By: Ashan Perera Jan 24,2017 AT 11:02AM - Posted 5 years ago - #25134

      when you fetch events it records the google event ID and then using that it updates the values next time you run it.

    • By: justinmichau Jan 24,2017 AT 11:25AM - Posted 5 years ago - #25149

      I give up. That’s not working. I click it then go up to hit fetch events and nothing changes. Why isn’t “Adjust Fetched event time according to timezone” affecting anything. Shouldn’t that somehow either clicked or not clicked change things?

      We are hoping for May end release Justin. Sorry the release date got pushed back with darn Woocommerce release a disastrous update causing lot of issues for us that needed attention immediately.

      But yea progress of re-worked sync is going great we are going to allow custom time offsets for fetched events 🙂
