Lehigh Google users have reported problems with Google Calendar sync if the following scenario exists. 

  • You are running iOS 6 or 6.0.1
  • You have configured exchange to view google calendar 
  • You have secondary calendars

If all of these are true for you, you may experience issues with the secondary calendars. See just one of several google reports here: http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/calendar/f18EaTKX6t4[1-25-false]

There is a workaround with  iPads, but  it is somewhat complex. The workaround is to configure the exchange sync to view a primary calendar and use gmail sync for all others.

Note also that there are two separate settings pages that Google uses to allow the user to select which calendar layers are synced to their device. Exchange/Calendar settings page - https://m.google.com/sync/settings/iconfig/setChosenCalendars   and Gmail/Calendar settings page - https://www.google.com/calendar/hosted/lehigh.edu/syncselect
