Recurring Event Duplicates – Google Calendar Import – Strange error Pattern
I’m sorry you are experiencing that issue. Let me help you with the troubleshooting.
I can see the duplicated events in your calendar, but I’m not really sure what could be causing it.
Could you please share with us (in a private reply if you’d like) the Google Calendar URL you are using to import the events from?
I will run some tests on my end to see if I can reproduce the duplicates and see if I can find the source of the problem.
After that, wait so that the import runs a few times, so that in case there is an error, it will be saved into the debug.log file. Please share that log file with us so we can see if any problem from there.
Thanks so much for your cooperation and patience so far.
Unfortunately, I could reproduce the duplicates when importing from gCal. The issue seems to be only with recurring events specifically, only when they are modified from Google Calendar.
As Event Aggregator does not support recurring events to be imported as such and each recurring instance is imported as a single event, then there is not a direct link between these and the ones in gCal thus creating new duplicates.
We currently have a report for this problem that intends to find a solution for this. I will set this thread’s status to Pending fix and link it to that report. We will let you know once a fix is made.
We apologise for the inconvenience and we appreciate your patience.
