The galaxy S5's phone's stock calendar syncs with the galaxy S5's Google calendar, however, the PC's Google calendar does not syn with either.

 

PS    When I type in a post the click to post, it does not. I have to come back and edit to post. What am I doing wrong?

Are you using the same Google Account (usually Gmail address) on both the PC and your device?

 

The only reason I have ever seen a Google Calendar not be in perfect sync across devices is if someone signs in using a different Google Account on one of them, which means that the calendar being used on that device is not the same calendar that's being used on the other(s).

As I said,   When I type in a post , then click "Post" it does not appear. I have to come back and edit in order to show the post to post. 

I am using Windows 10 with Chrome. See my blank previous post. is the issue on my end or yours? It did it again = when I posted it disappeared and when I edited it worked.

 

re: the calendar, I have wiped the caches on the similar Galaxy S5's, cleared data in the desktop and don the same with the Chromebook.

 

Is the a conservative way to remove all old traces and start over again with all 4 devices?

I have reported the issue with the forums software.  It's being attended to as I type.

 

You did not answer the question I originally asked.   If you are logged in using the same Google Account across multiple devices then each of those devices can and will access the same Google mail, calendar, etc.

 

You do have to use the Google mail, calendar, etc., apps, not the built-in ones on many older devices because those do not access the Google items, but ones local to the device itself.

I'm sorry I thought I explained that I have one Gmail account and that is what I use to log into the 4 calendars.

Then I cannot explain how they do not sync.

 

Your Google account is the master key to "all things Google" for that specific account.  If you are logged in to Google using that same account on all devices then if you are looking at Google Calendar using the Google Calendar app or, in the case of the PC, using the Google Calendar web interface you are looking at one and the same calendar.

 

The only logical explanation I can come up with is that you are not looking at the same Google calendar somewhere (as in on one of the devices as opposed to all the others).  The fact that you mention one of Samsung's calendar apps muddies the water as I don't know how it logs in to a given calendar or interacts with it.  I use only Google Apps or web interfaces to interact with my Google stuff with the exception of e-mail.  I use the web interface for e-mail but also have a number of e-mail client programs set up for testing purposes and all remain in perfect synchronization with each other since I use IMAP access.

Once again I posted, clicked 'post' and all disappeared.

 

I am now using the edit button. I had said,"Thank you for your time and patience and if I resolve the issue I will be back to explain further.

All I can suggest with regard to the "disappearing content" is two things:

 

1.  Keep reporting that the issue is happening, right after it happens, on the thread that I started based on your post this morning on the "Announcements, Comments, & Suggestions" forum.  This is beyond my ability to fix and I know it is being looked into.  That being said, there will be the presumption that the fixes that have been tried have worked if you suddenly stop saying that you're still having the problem (or say you're no longer having it).   Any time it crops up again add to that thread.

 

2.  Until it resolves definitely make a point to copy your entire message using CTRL+A, followed immediately by CTRL+C, just before you hit the "Post" button.  That way if it does disappear you can then just hit the "Edit" link at the bottom of the blank post and then paste what you copied (CTRL+V) and try posting it again.

Sorry to spoil a good thing but I was wrong. I do have synchronization but which is good and I do not know how it occurred. However I have more than one calendar name checked in order to get all the events. I think I have to create an event with one calendar but I have too many. I have my email address and my name in the pc and different names in the phones.
I will continue to work on this and at least they are synchronized but not all events are included.

Well, you also have to make sure that all calendars are visible and that they are shared if you're using ones associated with two different Google accounts.

 

There is no way from what you have offered so far that I can figure out exactly what you are doing and how things are interrelated.

 

I have the Google Calendar app on my phone as well as the Google Calendar online showing me 4 different calendars from 4 different Google Accounts (one the main Google Account and the other three from other Google Accounts sharing their calendars with the main account) and synchronizing perfectly.

 

You have got to have your proverbial ducks in a row and have the necessary sharing and visibility attributes set to make all this work.
