I have had my Trip It feed registered in my Google Calendar for several years, mostly without issue.
Note that some calendar applications will refresh on their own (Google Calendar, for example, can take up to a day before you see changes), so you may want to wait.
So, you've got a Trip It account and you've set up your calendar feed, but some of your plans aren't showing up in your calendar. If you happen to forward a travel confirmation email to [email protected] an email address that is not associated with your main Trip It account, we'll automatically create a new account for that address. Add all of your work and personal email addresses to your account on the Email Settings page. If any of these email addresses are linked to another account, we will help you merge your accounts.
Your calendar's cache may not have updated (refresh the feed). They can take anywhere from a few minutes to several hours to update calendar feeds.
To force a hard refresh just follow these steps: 1.
No updates on either one, several hours after the Trip It feed was updated. Google is great with algorithms but sadly out of touch with what people really need.
To force them both to refresh, I re-added the Trip It feed to the work calendar I suspect they have some optimization where they stop refreshing calendars that aren't recently used.
And I have future trips that are correctly in Google Calendar. I've manually examined the XML and i Cal feeds, and the trip is present.
Google Calendar just isn't respecting/reflecting it. Is there any way to "force" a Google Calendar sync?
This can be circumvented by altering the URL while requesting the same content.
Adding a query parameter (or attempting to add another one) will cause Google to treat the calendar as a new feed.
I thought the idea was pretty cool, but I never got around using it until now.
