Since SL "doesn't do i Cloud", I may stick with assigning the calendar manually to ensure the events also sync over when I plug in my devices (even if this means duplicate entries sometimes). :-( Problem: Synching a shared calendar did not work from my Mac to i Phone (using i Cloud), but worked from i Phone to Mac.
What I did: In the Calendars App on the Mac I exported the calendar - to have it as a backup.
So to refresh your i Cloud calendars, here’s what you’ll do.
Open the Calendar app on your i OS device, and then touch the “Calendars” button at the bottom.
It’s a way to force your calendars or contacts to refresh themselves, and it’s so quick!
You don’t even have to restart any devices, and whoo-hoo to that!
Since you want to sync i Cloud Calendar to Outlook, be sure to select “Mail, Contacts, Calendars, and Tasks” as well as any other features you want to sync across your devices.If your i Cloud calendar or contact data isn’t syncing between your devices, an important troubleshooting step is to figure out where the bottleneck is.What I usually do is add a test contact (for example) to my Mac and one to my i Phone, and then I log on to i with my Apple ID to see which contact arrives.Update your question with as many details and steps that you've already taken and we'll keep plugging away at it. Thanks jaberg, I have checked this and it seemed that all the events in question were correctly placed in the i Cloud calendars.I may consider changing the default calendar as you suggest, however, I have the added complication that I am running Snow Leopard and do add events there occasionally.
