[fr] Après ma mise à jour de OSX, petit problème avec iCal qui refusait de synchroniser avec mon iPhone les calendriers Google "délégués". La solution: ajouter chaque calendrier CalDAV individuellement. J'ai aussi trouvé la source des alarmes énervantes qui ont fait récemment leur apparition pour chaque nouvel événement que j'ajoutais: l'onglet "Notifications" dans Google Calendar.
I upgraded to OSX.6 (Snow Leopard) a week or so ago and discovered that iCal supported built-in sync with Google Calendar. I’d been using Spanning Sync until now (and was happy with it) but thought that if iCal did this out of the box, I might as well try it.
So, I set up delegation to add my multiple gCal calendars to iCal, but was disappointed that only my main calendar seemed to sync with my iPhone.
I found the solution to the problem here: how to make multiple Google Calendars in iCal sync with iPhone. In short, you turn off delegation, and add each gCal manually as a CalDAV account. Five minutes of work, but it works!
Since my upgrade I also had annoying notifications for each new event I created, even though I had turned off alarms in iCal. After hunting high and low, I spotted the “Notifications” tab in gCal calendar details, and discovered I had a series of default alarms set there for my main calendar. I turned them off, and while I was at it, linked my mobile phone to my account so I can get SMS alerts when I want them. (For once that this kind of stuff works with Switzerland too!)
