Why are my appointments disappearing from my Outlook calendar??? CindyMerrill 8/13/09 6:27 AM
In the last 24 hours, I've lost recurring appointments, single event appointments, appointments with reminders, appointments without reminders, old appointments, next week's appointments...  Sync worked well for a couple of weeks, and now I have no idea when I'm supposed to be where!  Appointments are just disappearing from Outlook for no apparent reason.  I DID NOT delete them from my phone, my Google Calendar, or from Outlook.  Yet, they're GONE.  And yesterday, I had an appointment in my day from YEARS ago, as if the year was read wrong by sync.  I've turned off Sync for now because I can't afford to lose anymore appointments...so now I can't sync my Palm Pre with my Outlook calendar...which is unacceptable.  That's why I use a Smart Phone - to sync my calendar, contacts, and task list (which I had accepted I can't do at this point).  I can't believe what a mess this is.  I was willing to wait patiently and live with small annoyances while the kinks are worked out of new the system - those little kinks that made my reminders wrong - because the phone really is a cool phone and I've been hopeful that it would catch up to my 755p in the pda capabilities, but this is ridiculous.  Thanks a lot, Google/Palm.  Your system sucks - NOT a step up from my 755p (or any of my other Palm devices.)

I seem to be having this problem too.  Did you ever figure out what was happening?  I agree this is a ridiculous problem to have.

I have been having the same problem.  And this is costing our business lots of money because we have service calls scheduled and they are just disappearing.  Help please!

We have the same issue at our office, we use three PC's with outlook that all sync together using the google sync application. Google is a wonderful solution....but if is starting to cost us money like it has recently, we might look for another solution. It was the most cost effective option than to invest in a server system...GOOGLE!! WHERE ARE YOU??? HELP US???

My problem is similar except I am only losing any appointsments that are sent to me.  If I create the appointment (wether single or reoccuring) it stays, but if someone sends me a an appointment notice it is there until the next sync.  Hopefully someone can come up with a solution, I am missing meetings and they have the email that says I accepted the appointment but I do not have the appointment on my calendar.

I had this problem too, Figured out that if you leave the requierd WHO section in the Appt. section with just a name or if there is a space in the name then your whole Appt. gets booted.  The section that says Who Requierd is for email addresses and not names with spaces. If i do not have an email I leave that section blank and I type the name to who I need to know in the description section, have not lost one since. Seem like a little glitch and should be corrected.

Operating system: Win7
Program and version you use to access Google Calendar: Outlook 2010 64 bit
Any Sync software you're using: Google Calendar Sync
If you're using the non-Apps version of Google Calendar (accessing from google.com/calendar/render) or you're on Google Apps: Just using Web Google Calendar, Droid X, Outlook 2010
If you have any Labs (and which ones) or Offline enabled: None

Too bad Google doesn't provide user support for thier products, I made this as simple as I could and I have to say I miss my old Palm phones with Intelisync.

Any event I create via a web browser or Outlook just for myself appears to always be fine, no matter how many times I edit the content or change the date of the event.

However, events I share or events people share with me are often deleted for no apparent reason. As far as I can tell the shared event is not deleted until I or the other party RSVP yes or maybe. If either one of us edit the event, that doesn't appear to cause the deletion - although these events have still been deleted later.

A friend has been using Exchange with Google Calendar Sync and she never shared events prior to sharing with me. But as far as we can tell, her side is not deleting the events, my side is.

When my side deletes an event my friend shared, she receives a notice I declined the event even though I didn't.
When my side deletes and event I shared, my friend loses the event like I do but I'm not positive if she receives an email stating I removed the event or she was removed from the event.
