* Org-GCal ?

Anyone using org-gcal?  I just got it hooked up and am now trying to
figure out how to fit it into my workflow.  My issue is (CMIAW) that
org-gcal seems to have a 1 to 1 connection between a Google calendar and
an Org file (org-gcal-file-alist).  I'm trying to figure out how to use
this when my workflow is split across many Org files.

Any ideas?

That was my observation too: it generates and maintains one .org file per
Google calendar.

How does that create a problem for you?

Have you considered using org-caldav instead? It can sync across several
org files - events created in org can live in any of them, while events
created in gcal will be synced to an inbox file, and can be easily
moved.

I haven't personally tried it syncing with gcal, but it claims to
work. And a superficial read of both org-gcal and org-caldav READMEs
suggest they use the same authentication workflow.

My workflow has a number of Org files (one per ~project) with
tasks/events related to the project in the associated Org file. Agenda
can pull all the tasks together, so it seemed a natural workflow.  I
wasn't thinking of creating a calendar per project as they are not
worthy of that -- one calendar would do to share my events with the
family.

I'm keeping an eye on that, but I haven't figured it out yet.

Oh, I think I see, you're interested in syncing back from Org to Google,
and you'd like to do that from your multiple existing Org files to a single
Google calendar.

I'm sorry, I've only used org-gcal in the other direction, and didn't know
if it could sync back to Google.  But it sounds like org-caldav might be a
better fit for you.

Best wishes,
    Neil
