[chandler-users] Can't set up sync with Google Calendar; because of server sharing account?

Thanks for the reply.  I tried your solution and it partially worked.
I am sharing four collections and for each one I followed this
procedure from my hub account.

1. Click on the triangle next to the collection name, click "Invite",
and then click "View-only".
2.  Under "Subscribe with", click on "Apple iCal, Google".
3. Copy the URL shown in the pop-up box.
4. In Google Calendar, select "Add by URL" in the calendar options.
5. Paste the URL and click "Add".

For two of my collections, this worked fine and the events showed up
soon afterward.  However, for the other two collections, no events
showed up for a while, and then eventually there was a pop-up message
from Google Calendar saying that it couldn't download the information.
 Then the collection was automatically removed.  This happened several
times with both of those calendars.  Finally, though, the process
worked without any error messages, but the events in each collections
have not shown up in Google calendar:  The calendar names are there,
but no events.

There is no difference in the settings of the collections that work
and the collections that don't work, so I have no idea what's causing
the trouble.  I suppose it's possible that it's not a Chandler problem
but rather a Google calendar problem.  Anyway, any further suggestions
would be greatly apreciated.
