I'm able to add multiple g-calendars from multiple accounts, but it appears that only the root calendar is synced with Windows 8's Metro Calendar app. Is there a way to sync all gmail calendars?
It might not be possible. You could try adding the other calendars on a single calendar, that should depending on the share settings of the other calendars, do what you want.– RamhoundAug 21, 2012 at 16:28
From a question I asked:
Someone posted a working solution on Microsoft Answers:
- Download User Agent Switcher from the Chrome Webstore
- Select an iOS device
- Go to https://m.google.com/sync/settings/iconfig/welcome?source=mobileproducts
Show advanced settings,
- Click your Windows Mail device
- In the URL change
- Submit URL (Press Enter)
- Check the boxes for the calendars you'd like to sync
- Readd your Google Account to your Windows Calendar app. It now works.
2Went through these steps and it didn't work. Sep 4, 2012 at 13:34
1Strange, it works for me and at least 5 others. I wonder if the Google Calendar people caught on. Sep 4, 2012 at 14:02
1I was able to select the different calendars, but they still don't show up on the calendar app. Sep 4, 2012 at 18:10
3It took a little while, but it eventually worked! Great find. Sep 5, 2012 at 16:48
1Strange, not working for me. I can see the other calendars on my Windows Phone but not on Windows 8.– makOct 8, 2012 at 19:26
At the moment, this probably can't be achieved. This same Question has been asked on MS Support and they have replied with a no.
Syncing Multiple Google calendars with New UI Calendar app
Currently per Google's request for bandwith, Calendar App only Sync root calendar.
Developers on both sides are working on this issue to improve accessibility on this.
Another thread from the Ms Support
How to sync multiple Gmail Calendars using the Mail, Calendar, Messaging and People App?
You have multiple calendars in your Gmail calendar but only one of them syncs with the Calendar app and you want to know how to sync all the others calendars to the Calendar app. Please note that currently per Google's request for bandwidth, Calendar App will only Sync root calendar. Developers on both sides are working on this issue to improve accessibility on this.
Easiest fix is just to import each Google Calendar into a hotmail account. Then when you add this account to the Windows 8 Calendar app not only do they all appear, but they are still organized by color.
3If the Google Calendar is modified are the changes reflected by the Hotmail account? Nov 2, 2012 at 6:36
This seems to have changed again:
- Using Google Chrome, ensure you are signed in to Google
- Add User-Agent Switcher from the Chrome Web Store
- From the face icon that appears in the toolbar select iPhone
- Go to https://m.google.com/sync
- All of your devices should now appear (Windows 8 is known as WindowsMail)
