Submitting an Issue

A lot of work has gone into this project, aiming to cater for many different versions of Outlook and types of usage. If you discover a bug, please help squash it!
  1. Firstly, please make sure you are using the latest release (alpha if available).
  2. If the problem still persists, search the existing Issues to see if it's already been reported - it may already have a hotfix posted
  3. If you have a new Issue, create a new issue and describe the problem. Include:
    1. What you did to produce the problem
    2. Does it repeatedly happen/is a reproducible issue
  4. Post your OGcalsync.log file1 by going to Settings > Application Behaviour > Open Log. Please append you CodePlex username to the log filename.
    1. Either upload to the work item
    2. Post to my Google Drive via CloudWok
    3. Use your own DropBox/Google Drive etc and contact me directly with a link to the file.
1The OGcalsync.log file will have details of your calendar items and other attributes, depending on the logging level set.

Tips
  • Don't upload the settings.xml file unless requested, and make sure you remove the RefreshToken value before uploading (this is your private key to update your Google account)
