I am trying to sync Google Calendar with Evolution email client. But I am not able to do so. I tried some of the steps given in web to include Google Calendar and infact I am able to see my entries that I created in Google Calendar

Problem is I cannot save any new appointments entries to Google Calendar through Evolution. Please help me.

Check this on ubuntu wiki: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GoogleCalendarWithEvolution

This will help you.


With Two-Factor-Authorization (2FA) enabled on your account and/or Google for Business:

  1. Create a new app password for your Google Account (save this somewhere)

  2. Create a new Calendar in Evolution (File -> New -> Calendar)

    URL: https://www.google.com/calendar/dav/<your email address>/events/
    User: Your full google account (user.name@domain.com)
    Check "Server handles meeting invitations"

    Click "OK" and enter your app password, not your Google password.

    Thank you Leon. This is also very useful for Google business accounts, to allow syncing your work calendar to your smartphone (e.g. with CardDAV-Sync for Android)
