From time to time Intuitive Accountant will attempt to keep our readers aware of major issues associated with products we have previously reviewed when we become aware of those issues. In that regard we have become aware of an issue with Amicus Attorney and its' ability to synchronize with Google Calendar as a result of changes in the API (application programming interface) imposed by Google.
The Google Calendar synchronization with Amicus Attorney Premium has been interrupted by Google cutting off the "API" that it uses. The synchronization of Calendar items between Amicus and Google stopped functioning on November 17, 2014. You should not rely on your Google and Amicus Calendars being automatically synchronized for any items entered on or after November 17th, 2014. Appointments entered or changed in Amicus will not be reflected in Google, and vice versa. This also means that any appointments entered into Google through a smartphone or tablet after the 17th will not be reflected in Amicus.
Amicus Attorney Premium features a Contacts and Calendar link with Microsoft Outlook on your desktop. You may be able to connect your Outlook to Google, and Amicus to Outlook (see below), and then maintain a connection, as Amicus would then be connecting to Google through Outlook. Alternatively, you may consider switching from Google to Microsoft Exchange, which in our opinion provides a superior experience in virtually all respects. Amicus Attorney Premium 2014 has a superb and reliable link with Exchange. For more information see https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gappssync.
If you do not wish to use Outlook or Exchange synchronization, then in the short term calendar items must be entered separately and manually in Google and Amicus.
