Doesn’t work. what is “calendar.id.noted.in.point.8”?
Read points 5 to 8 and you will have your calendar ID
I couldn’t get this to work without installing the Google Provider 0.9 add-on.
At the time of writing I was unable to install the Google Provider 0.9 plugin from Moz.
Though setting things up in the Software Centre appeared to add the plugin.
