In the roadmap, 2-way sync with google calendar is marked as done.

Does anyone have this working?

I went thru the setup process and the "toodledo" calendar did not show up.

No, I don't use it because it is not working for me.
Too confusing

And is there a 2-way sync at all? I have only found the ical sync, which is one-way (if we are talking about https://www.toodledo.com/tools/sync_ical.php).

Two way sync is here : https://www.toodledo.com/tools/connect_google.php

We changed the sync settings to every 15mins now. Please create a support ticket if it is not working.

Yeah, as Anant posted, they finished it. At first, it was not working for me—there was a technical glitch. They got it working.

I am very happy about the progress, but at 15-minute sync intervals, it is not useful to me.

From the link that Anant posted:
Create or edit a task on Google and it will automatically get updated on Toodledo. Like magic.
Well, I guess "automatically" doesn't necessarily mean "instantly" but it's implied. And it's a stretch to say that "magic" means waiting 15 minutes.

It seems that all tasks will be synced to Google Calendar, with no way of selecting by Context, Folder, Status or range of dates. Is that right?

Purveyor, yes, all dated tasks sync with no other filtering. I am unsure how start and due might be handled differently, though.

Also, support told me that they are looking to bring the interval down to 1 minute or even 30 seconds. If that happens, that should work for me.

TOODLEDO: THIS IS HUGE. If you can make this a priority, NO ONE HAS THIS FEATURE.

Todoist can sync with Google Calendar but Todist does not have your layout of Task in an editable list
TickTick does sync with Google Calendar but it is slow also but the Calendar Feature is buggy in that on the PC Browser Ticktick you have to subscribe to a calendar and on the Android app you can choose the calendar and it will appear. But now you have a double entry on your phone. The major problem with ticktick is that I cannot move the items that are created on the google calendar. I can move the Ticktick items around.

So, I just tried your calendar
1. Awesome progress that an Original Toodledo Task can be moved around on my Google Calendar
2. The new Due Date and Time does update back to Toodledo! (Very Slow)

Question: If you create an entry in Google Calendar, the event does not go back to Toodledo?

What would drive people back to Toodledo is if you could make this feature work. GTD drove Toodledo to the top years ago. Every Android App was based on Toodledo. I search all of the latest Project/Task Management Apps and I return back to Toodledo because I like the List. However, the new movement is to Block Calendarizing Time. To move the Task off the List into Calendar. To be able to move them around a calendar but then see them on the list. My Wish List:
1. Create a button or some system for "Manual Sync" or Refresh
2. Have the Data Folder, Tags, Priority (Could this be done with the same language when I send it by email subject line to become a Toodledo Task?)
3. Can an task be created in Google that will go back to Toodledo?
4. Is there a ways to Click the calendar item as done. This is feature that is in Ticktick with a cute sound that is addictive. But this is not a priority.

Best Wishes for Toodledo's Future!

Edit. If Toodledo changes the auto update to 1 min intervals will this affect the battery life of devices. Is this similar to email always going to search for new mail drains my device battery? Instead of just a Refresh Button or drop-down like Google calendar has on Android.

Is the sync still supposed to be 15 minutes?

I can only synch one way given that I followed all their steps.

I create a task in my Toodledo app on Iphone and that shows up on my google calendar.

I create a task in my google calendar( I choose Toodleo calendar in gcal) and even after waiting for more than an hour, the new tasks do not show up in my Toodledo app on my iphone.

what am I not doing right?

I submitted a ticket a month ago about changes from gcal not syncing back to toodledo—this sounds like the same issue. They verified the problem and said they are working on it. I have pretty much given up on the feature because, even if it works, it is supposed to be really slow.
