Hi EMP, welcome to the forums. In order for events created in VueMinder to appear on your Google Calendar, you'll need to use 2-way sync. Also, VueMinder supports multiple calendars. Some calendars might be local and some might be synced with Google Calendar. If you want an event to appear on Google Calendar, please ensure the event is associated with a calendar that is configured to 2-way sync with Google Calendar.

Another possibility is that your firewall is blocking outbound data from VueMinder to Google Calendar, and only allowing inbound data. You might need to add an exception for VueMinder before syncing will work in both directions.

Hi EMP, unfortunately Google has not released an API yet that will allow syncing with tasks. This is something the user community has been asking Google to add for many years, but for whatever reason they haven't added it yet.

I'll improve VueMinder to sync tasks with Google Calendar as soon as the Google API is officially updated to support task syncing. Thank you for the suggestion, and please let me know if you have any other questions.

thank you very very much
i suggest to sync task as they where events so when the user add a task he will see it in google as event and when he set it as completed it will be deleted in google

this is very usefull in my case and many people case, i have a mobile with calendar that sync with google and have your incredible reminder on my pc, so when i add a task(which is my most repeated issue) in on side i will see it in the other.
if you could do this it will be an amazing application.

thank you again

I use an Android app on my phone called Astrid that syncs tasks with Google Tasks. They must use some sort of an API to do the sync - perhaps you can find out what they do and use that in VueMinder.

By the way, I'm a new user and I love the program. Great work!!

Google Tasks finally has an API:
http://code.google.com/apis/tasks/v1/using.html

It's still in beta and likely to change. Also, there's no .NET version of the API yet, so it will take some tinkering to make it work with VueMinder. I plan on tackling this very soon.

Every few seconds I get a notice that that VueMinder cannot sync with Google Calendar, which says the following:

"An error occurred while attempting to connect to Google Calendar: padding is invalid and cannot be removed.

"Please confirm your username and password are correct. If you are behind a proxy server, you can configure your proxy settings from the options menu"


It does not give me a chance to give my correct Google username and password. All I can do is close the notice, which comes back in a a VERY short period of time.

Hi poppo, welcome to the forums. To fix the problem, fully exit VueMinder (via the Exit common on the task tray icon's right-click menu). Go to the VueMinder data folder and delete the file named ProgramSettings.xml. If you're not sure where the data folder is located, check the Program Options, via the Options menu.

When VueMinder restarts, it will ask for your Google Calendar login information and should no longer give an error.
