    Is there a way to see invite updates or accepted invites. I am not seeing any record of these events in my Sent box, though Gcalendar indicates briefly that I’ve sent an update or accepted. thanks.

    Great tool BUT how do I (working on Australian Eastern Standard Time) sync my calendar invites and acceptances with time-zones of other international locations?
    Example:
    I have just sent a Google calendar event invitation via my Gmail account to record an interview with Bob Etheridge, Event Director of Social Media Plus Summit at 5pm his local time in Philadelphia to correspond with my local time of 8am the next day in Melbourne, Australia.
