Troubleshooting

Google Calendar appointments are between one and several hours off
If the appointments from a Google Calendar appear consistently at the wrong times in your Cozi calendar, you probably need to specify your time zone with Google.

1. Sign in to Google Calendar.

2. Click the Settings link in the upper-right corner of the page.

3. Where it says Your current time zone, select your time zone. Google Calendar appointments should now appear correctly in your Cozi calendar.

Some Google Calendar appointments missing from Cozi calendar
If some appointments from a Google Calendar are missing in your Cozi calendar, you probably need to verify that the events are part of the same calender that Cozi is subscribed to in Google.

1. Sign in to Google Calendar.

2. Find an event that is showing up in Cozi and look at the appointment detail. The name of the calendar that the event belongs to will be listed.

3. Find another appointment in Google that is not appearing in Cozi and look at the appointment detail. If the “calendar” is different, it means that it will not appear in the Cozi calendar. Each “calendar” in Google has a different iCalendar address that must be added to Cozi to make it appear. For assistance adding a new Google Calendar to Cozi, go to Viewing Google Calendar appointments in Cozi.
