Do you have a GMail or Google account and use Google Calendar? Have you ever needed to view multiple calendars in iCal, but can’t? Getting your Google Calendar into your iCal is fairly easy with a few simple steps.
To begin, you will need to do is fire up iCal, in iCal “Preferences,” and click on “Accounts” at the top. Then under “Account Type” select “Google” and fill out your username and password. After the window disappears go to “Server Settings” and make sure the server address is www.google.com, and that the port “use SSL” is checked. After you have checked over those things you will need to click on “Delegation” which should be right next to “Server Settings.” Click all the boxes of Calendar Categories that you would like to have in iCal and it in a few minutes your calendar should have the events from Google Calendar. iCal will automatically bring in new changes every 15 minutes; however, if you wish to have it done faster, just change the rate in the “Refresh Calendars” box.
There you go, all of your Google Calendars should now be in iCal, now you don’t have to view Google Calendars’ “Microsoft looking” interface.
