Hello,

the sync can be set up one-or-two-way. Please make sure you have set it up correctly- you can delete the existing sync and create a new one.

Good Morning Max
Is it possible that he doesn't have a category assigned to the EPIM calendar event? EPIM catagorys are converted to calendars when copied to the iPhone. I have to assign catagorys to see them on the phone calendars.
Thanks

Yes, that's the case, you might need to assign categories.

Thanks Max. This brings up a question. Considering that I have seen this a couple of times, maybe it could be possible to assign a default IOS calendar name when the category is not specified on copying to the iPhone? I can see where a person might not want to assign a category.
Thanks

I have just downloaded EssentialPIM 7.54 to my laptop which runs Windows 10 and EssentialPIM for iOS v 2.8.1 to my iPhone 5s. I added a very few appointments on my laptop and then used the Sync Wizard. The appointments do indeed appear on my iPhone (wonderful!) but all are duplicated. Please advise as to how I can sync without getting duplicate records. I'm afraid I'm a novice with regard to the technicalities of computing (not sure what people mean when mentioning database management or categories) but looking at a few other posts it might help for you to know that I did a two-way sync - I don't think I had the option of synching one-way as I think they were greyed out - not certain about this.
I would very much appreciate your help.

Hello,

one-way would not help in this case. I suggest to use File-> Database Management and clear iOS synchronization cache. That might prevent duplicates from appearing. Please also use 7.6 RC1: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=19641
