Entourage sync with iCal – doesn’t work for me

Advertisements

So far my impression is that the Entourage 2008 sync with Apple’s iCal software doesn’t work. Well, sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes events appear in Entourage but not in iCal. Sometimes the other way around. Sometimes they appear at different times in Entourage than in iCal. Sometimes they appear multiple times in both.

Hoo-boy. Color me depressed.

  1. Huh. Entourage 2004 and 2008 have synced with iCal pretty seamlessly for me since they added support for Sync Services. And my company is a solid Windows shop.

    Then again, I use Exchange as my primary work calendar repository, and don’t use iCal to do much editing – only reason I used Sync Services was to a) publish my work calendar to .Mac for gCal import via WebDav and b) for iPod/iPhone sync until I got direct ActiveSync support in iPhone 2.x

  2. Hmmm…. that’s pretty much exactly the scenario I’m trying to get to (though I’d like to use iCal for event entry that would then populate to Exchange). Maybe I should turn off all syncing on all my machines and start over again. Thanks, Jim.
