Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? Frank G 5/11/09 4:33 PM
How do I keep events on a friends Yahoo calendar synced to my Google calendar?
I've done the .csv upload but does it track updates to the Yahoo calendar?
I tried to add the URL but it errored saying:
"The address that you provided did not contain a calendar in a valid iCal or GData format."

What am I missing, why cant Google Calendar simply pick up the data from the URL?
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? boboone 6/8/09 4:24 PM
I am having the same issue now that I have a Palm Pre.  I can use Yahoo Calendar to keep my Outlook Calendar sync'd, something that Google cant do.  If I could get Google to sync with Yahoo, I can keep my Calendar updated on my new Pre. 
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? ejc10000 6/30/09 3:00 PM
Yes, most interested in finding a way to sync yahoo with palm pre. Sounds like the yahoo <-> google calendar is the best way. Please post if you have a good method. Thanks
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? KSDADx5 7/24/09 8:54 PM
I also recently got a palm pre and was disappointed it doesn't sync directly with Yahoo Calendar. I created a workaround by creating 2 one-way ical syncs between yahoo and google.  Here is the process:

1.  Create a google calendar.

2.  Convert your Yahoo Calendar to Yahoo Calendar Beta.  You can do this at switch.calendar.yahoo.com

3.  In google calendar click on "settings" under "My Calendar" to the left.  In the box that opens click on the name of your google calendar, (it looks like a hyperlink).

4.  Under "Private Address" Click on the green ICAL box and copy the web address that pops up.

5.  Open Yahoo Calendar, and click the "+" next to "calendars" on the left side. Choose subscribe to calendar

6.  Paste the web address you copied from google into the URL field.  Then click next and follow the directions.  This will sync google to yahoo (one way)

7.  To sync the yahoo calendar to google (other way), click on share calendar at upper right screen.  Fill out the email address, choose the settings and click "save".

8.  Go to the email and copy the URL specified as ical.

9.  Go to google calendar and click "add" under "other calendars" to the left and select "add by URL".

10.  Paste the yahoo calendar URL you copied from the email into the field and click add

Now both google and yahoo are sync'd with each other.  You can sync your palm pre to the google calendar, creating a seamless sync between yahoo and the pre.

Is Yahoo Calendar Beta not available in the US?  I get a message saying it doesn't support my language.

Do you think this process would facilitate hotsyncing my Treo 750P to my Yahoo calendar via this link to the Google calendar. The Hotsync directly to Yahoo was very disappointing. If this process duplicates my yahoo calendar on Google automatically, then would it be possible to hotsync Google with my Treo 750P? How to do?

Excellent tutorial, KSDADx5.  Thanks for solving the dilemna I've had since getting the G1 Android phone.  Now my Yahoo! and Google calendars are finally speaking with one another.
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? ejc10000 9/15/09 1:07 PM
I followed the directions above, but if I enter a new "event" in yahoo, it doesn't appear in the google calendar.
 
It looks like the old yahoo events (which do show in the google calendar) are dispayed with very thin blue line extending from  the top of the "event" in yahoo. When I mouse over that line, I see the work "appointment". The newer events added in Yahoo beta calendar do not have that  thin blue "line" .
 
Does anyone know how to add new events to the yahoo beta calendar so they will be recognized and visible in google calendar? Thanks,E
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? afilios 9/30/09 4:10 PM
I also followed the directions above, but new appointments in yahoo do not appear in the google calendar
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? rgombine 11/12/09 9:03 PM
Agree - New information added to google calendar shows up in Yahoo after its refreshed.  Unfortunately, NEW events added after the yahoo calendar was "shared" don't show up in google.  Too bad . . .it looked promising.  I suppose it would still allow individuals to use Yahoo as a read-only platform where calendars are centralized, while  using google to make changes on the fly.  BTW, I contacted Yahoo about this issue and they were agressively unhelpful:  "Although your question does relate to your Yahoo! Mail service, the real
issue isn't directly about the service. You should be able to find the 
answer to your question by going straight to the source, contacting the 
company or website whose product you're trying to use, Google Calendar
If your Calendar is not syncing properly to your Google Calendar, they 
can help you resolve that issue."

VERY NICE!
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? vfonte1 12/22/09 11:28 PM
Still a problem. I have my Yahoo calendar shared one way with both my gmail and hotmail (live) calendars.   My wife keeps the family calendar in yahoo calendar.  Events added in yahoo calendar are automatically shared into Live calendar, but not to google calendar. I am trying to get my yahoo calendar on my blackberry curve. Since Yahoo or Live does not automatically sync with BB yet,  I was thinking I could share my yahoo calendar to my google calendar and then use the google sync app on my bb to get the google calendar to my BB. No luck.  2 issues.  1. the problem others are having in that the google calendar does not update when changes are made in yahoo calendar.  2. I do not see the shared yahoo calendar on my BB, just the google calendar only entries.

You can convert your Palm Datebook Archive (DBA) to CSV very easily:

http://www.kmoser.com/palm2csv/

Fast, free and easy. No download or plug-in required.
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? g2506 4/1/10 1:23 PM
Excellent instructions.
The 1 thing I will add to the above instructions, is that { 5.  Open Yahoo Calendar, and click the "+" next to "calendars" on the left side. Choose subscribe to calendar }, this (+) is located within the "hiden calender" between (Today: & View:) Tabs.
 
It is sticking out directly below the "Yahoo Calendar Beta" icon, and directly above the calendar.
 
This will answer the sync for you Android(Samsung Moment)..
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? daybw 5/1/10 2:46 PM
This seems to not work. I can get the google calendar to yahoo beta, but when adding the yahoo beta .ics URL to google, I get an error after the indexing starts. "could not fetch the url because robots.txt prevents us from crawling the url". I am trying to get our family yahoo calendar to push to my new google account for my HTC Incredible. Has anyone else run into this?
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? daybw 5/1/10 2:48 PM
FYI... I found this issue on a different forum, they mention a solution by using Yahoo Pipe. I tried this but the run of the pipe always generates errors. I suspect the same issue is killing the pipe as well.
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? wildbrr 5/2/10 6:42 AM
When I click on the URL in Google calendar to produce a ics file, it does nothing; I just get a blank screen.. I can produce HTML and XML files, but the green ICAL button doesn't work for me. I need the ics file to load into another calendar system (or a csv file, which I don't think Google can make). Can anyone help me. I would appreciate it.
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? ericf10 6/6/10 5:32 AM
I folllowed KSDADx5's tutorial.  I can get Yahoo to bring in the Google calendar, but cannot get Google to sync to Yahoo.  I tried the following URLs and neither displays in my Google calendar.  Any help is greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

Add to Outlook, Apple iCal, or another calendar: http://calendar.yahoo.com/xxxx@ymail.com/abcdefghijk12345/ycal.ics?id=131

Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? mr.rob 6/9/10 12:52 AM
I too spent hours trying to get my Google calendar to sync with the Yahoo one.  Then I found an interesting tidbit in the Google help directory.  It stated that the calDav / ics file recognition in Google only works with apple and Mozilla Sunbird.  I was finally able to down load Sunbird, sync it to Yahoo, then save the ics file and import it to Google.  The Google calendar still wont auto sync, but at least all my existing content was moved over and that's a start.
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? Stakeout 8/21/10 3:52 PM
the last part... Yahoo synced back to Google NO GOOD... can't find a place in the Google Calendar to put the URL that I copied from the email...  I went to ADD under Google Calendars  and all it has is a space for an email address not a YRL..
can anyone help in finding the space to put the URL in...   thanx
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? jshardalow 9/4/10 9:09 AM
I followed this... I think correctly... but couldn't get the Yahoo calendar to sync with the Google one.

I seem to be having the same problem as others here.
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? jshardalow 9/4/10 9:20 AM
More... I got the existing Yahoo calendar imported into Yahoo as iCas. But not getting syncing from Yahoo to Google.
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? hmsuddat 9/21/10 12:07 PM
I also followed the instructions and now see my Yahoo calendar iCal URL in the Google "Other Calendars" section, but the items aren't synching over.

still unable to sync yahoo ics file in google calendar due to robots.txt
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? ChiaLynn 12/1/10 11:40 AM
I found a solution that works for me, but it requires signing up for one more calendar account, at Zoho.com.

With the Zoho calendar, I was able to import the Yahoo! calendar (with no robots.txt error), then export it to Google calendar.

Once you're signed up and logged in to Zoho, look for the "My Calendars" box on the left hand side of the page. Click the little blue arrow to open the dropdown menu. Select "Import Calendar." On the next page, click the tab for "by URL." Paste in the calendar link from the email Yahoo! sent when you shared the calendar (as described by KSDADx5 above), and give the calendar a name.

Now, in the menu on the left, select "My Calendars," and "Share" your newly imported Yahoo! calendar. I enabled the private address option, copied the ICAL URL, and pasted it into Google calendar. Works perfectly so far!

One final step, if you're trying to sync your Yahoo! calendar with an Android phone (which is what got me started with this madness), is to go into your phone's calendar, select "Calendars" under the "More" menu, and then "Add Calendars."
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? ChiaLynn 12/1/10 12:08 PM
Oh, argh. Never mind. The Zoho import has to be redone every time you update the Yahoo! calendar, and then it looks like you'll have to re-add it to Google, as well. If anyone can find a different work-around using Zoho (or another online calendar), I'd be thrilled to hear about it.
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? Tony Conz 1 12/21/10 4:44 AM
There is seriously no solution to this?  It looks like this has been a problem for over a year!
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? acw100 12/21/10 3:21 PM
Seriously this is super lame on Google's part.
 
The yahoo calendar can be imported to ical with no problem. except ical isn't web based so that doesn't help me. Fix this problem GOOGLE!
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? sabuey 1/14/11 7:20 PM
If your finel goal is to sync Yahoo Calendar with an Android phone, this app does the trick:  http://www.hypermatix.com/products/calendar_sync_for_android?q=faq
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? gateranger 2/4/11 9:56 AM
THE ANSWER:  Download this free app as sabuey said above - I wasted quite a few hours tryuing to sync with yahoo and google.  This took 2 mins and works perfectly.  Either go to marketplace and search for caldav, or read this link
Yes! Here's how:
  1. In Mozilla Lightning/Sunbird, click New Calendar in the "File" menu.
  2. Select On the network and click Next.
  3. Enter this URL: https://caldav.calendar.yahoo.com/dav/your_username/Calendar/your_calendar_name
  4. Enter your Yahoo! ID without the "@yahoo.com" at the end. Or, if your email address does not end in "@yahoo.com" (i.e. "@ymail.com" or "@yahoo.fr"), include the full email address as your Yahoo! ID.
  5. Your password is the same one you use to login to Yahoo! products such as Yahoo! Calendar and Yahoo! Mail.
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? diamondcat 2/7/11 12:46 AM
After trying everything to get my Yahoo calendar synced with my Android phone, gaterangers answer actually worked but was a bit confusing.  you don't have to install Mozilla Sunbird or do anything with it.
1) Downloaded the Caldav app from Marketplace to your phone.
2) On your phone, run the app called Calendar Sync
3) First thing it asks for is the URL so type this:
https://caldav.calendar.yahoo.com/dav/your_username/Calendar/your_calendar_name
If your Yahoo email address ends in ymail.com, then replace 'your_username' with your full email address.
If your email ends with yahoo.com, then replace 'your_username' with just the beginning part of your email address.  So if my email address is ha...@yahoo.com then I replace 'your_username' with just 'Happy'.
4) Then the next thing is to type in your yahoo user ID and password in the spaces provided.
5) Then hit the sync now bar at the bottom.

Now when you open the calendar, that came on your phone, you should see all your entries have been added from your Yahoo calendar.  You will need to sync the calendars when you make changes either on your phone or from your computer.  I put the Calendar Sync icon right next to myCalendar icon so I can just sync it once a day. 

Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? Adub-woody 3/6/11 6:28 PM
Diamond Cat,
 
I am trying to follow the directions that you have listed but I am getting lost when entering the link. My email address ends in yahoo.com. My issue is  when I get to the end of the link "/Calendar/your_calendar_name". Am I entering in my yahoo name here as well?
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? hmsuddat 3/9/11 7:10 AM
Same as Adub-woody...I've been trying caldav/calendar sync on my Droid since I've seen this update, but it's not working. What exactly my "your_calendar_name"? I've been putting in all the text after the last / on the yahoo web link, and now I also tried all the text after the last / on the .ics link, and I tried just the id=XXX, and tried my yahoo name. I keep getting "not found".
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? wannasync 3/16/11 9:01 PM
I just found the calendar name.  This works for the new yahoo calendar.  I couldn't find it while on classic, though I have to believe it's there somewhere.  for the new yahoo calendar, if you go to options / share calendar, it will show the name of the name of your calendar. 

Once I put in the calendar name, it worked great!.  Only have tried syncing one way so far, to the droid.  It worked!  The directions from diamondcat is what I used exactly.
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? Tony Conz 1 3/17/11 3:56 AM
OK, It sounds like there is a solution for the Driod sync problem, but what about just syncing online?  I am trying to add events to a Google calendar that is embedded into my website.  I COULD BUY a Droid and sync yahoo to it in turn syncing it with my Google calendar in turn posting the events on my website, but that seems like an expensive solution.  Anyone have any other solutions?
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? wings9798 3/27/11 7:56 PM
Just to keep thjis post on the top. I will try diamond cat's process tomorrow. I got the new ymail.com calendar and was able to sync google calendar to ymail, just trying to sync back so my droid can see my ymail calendar. We will see. I'll post my results once I've attempted.
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? clyoung 4/1/11 1:22 PM
KSDADx5's  solution worked until Step 10 - Google Calendar will not import the Yahoo URL.  Looks like a Google problem that has been present for some time. Is there any update?

Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? dwipen 4/6/11 11:20 AM
Synching yahoo calendar on my android was a challenge as yahoo did not allow to export into formats which were not accepted by android. This is what i had did,
1) Open Google calendar and  Create a calendar with name Yahoo
2) Export the Yahoo calendar in outlook express (CSV format)
3) Open Google calendar and import the CSV file
4) Sync with Google calendar
 Simple..
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? Bitterjug 4/27/11 3:20 AM
I have a similar problem. I added a new calendar to my online google calendar using Ad By URL, the calendar gets added but no events show up. The data stream is here, if I go to the link in the browser. Is google calendar not parsing the iCal properly? Or is there another step I have to perform?
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? fsdal 6/2/11 6:00 AM
Help! Followed directions from diamondcat. Thanks! but still in a pickle.
Caldav is installed and synch but it only wants to synch my contacts. Doesnt offer to synch the calendar which is what I am interested in.I am trying to get yahoo calendar new on to my droid. Thanks.
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? fredhag 6/21/11 1:02 PM
I am having the same troubles regarding subscribing to a Yahoo ICS calendar.  It seems to work everywhere except Google which leads me to believe that is where the problem stems.  Updates?
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? yahoocal 7/3/11 8:05 AM
Google still has problems with this.  Seems simple but Google won't load the Yahoo .ics link.  Very annoying, and a loss to Google.  I was going to use their products on my new Andoid phone but now I will search for other apps instead that actually work.
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? wings9798 8/12/11 1:55 PM
I was able to get my Yahoo Calendar into Google but had to use my droid x to act as a go between. I downloaded the caldav app on the X. I inputted all my calender updates into Yahoo. I then sync through the caldav app on the DroidX and it brought all of my yahoo calendar events onto my phone, which in turn put them onto my google calendar. Just have to remember to sync through caldav.

Word of caution. As you know in yahoo you can subscribe to a Google calendar and just refresh the Google calendar in Yahoo and it will populate the Gcalendar events on Yahoo. Yahoo doesn't know that the event originated from yahoo so if you refresh in yahoo after syncing in caldav, your events will duplicate.

My workaround is to only input events on Yahoo and never refresh the Gcalendar. I know I could just use the Yahoo calendar app for my phone but the X calendar through google works better.
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? irene21 9/15/11 1:34 PM
Hi, has anyone been able to sync yahoo calendar directly to Blackberry? can CALDAV help with sync to BB?
Many thanks for the help!!!
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? Alex Ciobanu 12/13/12 3:23 AM
I am thinking about writing an application for the sync. Does somebody need it and would like to be beta tester?
Re: Yahoo calendar sync with Google Calendar? DorsalMO 12/20/12 8:51 AM
Yahoo just needs to get off their butts and write a free Android calendar app.
