How to Use Cozi With Google Calendar
One of the most popular questions we get on Facebook (and Twitter) is this: "Can I sync Cozi with Google Calendar?"
The answer is that although you cannot sync, you can import a Google Calendar to Cozi, and you can also export a Cozi Calendar to Google Calendar (or any other digital calendar such as Outlook or iCal).
This video tutorial demonstrates exactly how to do it. Please see a few important notes at the end.
Update to information given in the screencast: You CAN import a private Google calendar into Cozi, you do not need to make it public to view it in Cozi. (Thank you to the commenters who brought this to our attention!) Here are the instructions:
- In the list of calendars in Google calendar, move your mouse over the calendar you'd like to import into Cozi.
- Click the drop-down arrow that appears, then select Calendar settings.
- Beside "Private Address:" Click the ICAL button and copy the URL that is displayed to obtain an ICS file containing your calendar data. This is the URL that you will paste into Cozi.
In both cases (import or export), you get a read-only feed from the original source. This means that the person importing the calendar details cannot modify them, only view them.
Cozi updates data from Google approximately every 30 minutes. So it may take that long for new information to show up in your Cozi Calendar.
Google calendar can take up to 24 hours to get data from Cozi, so if you need to send data to someone urgently, be aware they may not see it in their Google Cal for a full day.
