Frequently Asked Questions
- I can't buy Caliander in the App Store. It says it's already installed!
- I'm on Lion and changes made in Caliander don't appear in other applications, or vice versa!
- Why don't I see changes to network calendars in Caliander?
- Can I use Caliander with Google Calendar?
You need to drag any beta or trial version of Caliander to the trash first. (You won't lose any data or your preferences.) Press Command-R in the Mac App Store to make it refresh after you have moved Caliander to the trash.
This App Store behaviour came as a surprise to a lot of developers. If you're interested, you can read more about it in The Future of Mac App Store Installs.
I'm on Lion and changes made in Caliander don't appear in other applications, or vice versa!
As of version 1.1, Caliander runs in something called the security sandbox which is required by Apple. Because of how the security sandbox works in Lion, other calendar application are not notified when the common calendar database changes.
To resolve this, upgrade to Mountain Lion.
Why don't I see changes to network calendars in Caliander?
First, are you on Mountain Lion? Otherwise, see question I'm on Lion and changes made in Caliander don't appear in other applications, or vice versa!
With Mountain Lion, Apple improved things so that changes to the common calendar database are pushed to network calendars, even if the change comes from a 3rd party application. Unfortunately, they did not improve things in the other direction. It is still only Calendar.app (formerly known as iCal) which can pull changes from the network and into the common calendar database. Hopefully this will be addressed in the future.
Until then, a workaround is to have Calendar.app running in the background to pull changes from the network. It is possible to have Calendar.app launch on startup but in a hidden state.
With Google Calendar, there is a problem if your Google Calendar account contains more than one calendar: When iCal synchronizes such accounts, all but the primary calendar are configured as Delegation calendars, which aren't supported by Caliander because of limitations in the Calendar Store API. This can be avoided, however, as described in the Google Calendar Help forum in the thread Google Calendar sync with iCal - Delegates??
