Feedback for synchronization
Please add some feedback when the synchronization is running and is completed. As it is now I'm never sure if the sync succeeded or not.
Really, 6 years old. It takes, what, 15 minutes for a developer to add that Sync(Status)Observer where the syncrequest is called, including a Snackbar message after pressing "Sync now". Adding better UI feedback (like the widget refresh icon spinning during sync, or showing a warning when it's out of sync) would take longer, maybe a day or two. But not 6 years.
Is this issue resolved yet? I'm still experiencing the same problem.It's really annoying.

This is a 2015 suggestion with multiple votes. Maybe it's time to actually implement it?

This would be very helpful. I have it installed on a Note 4 and it does not sync to Google unless I run the Google Android Calendar app. I need your help on this.
Luca Boccaccio commented
It would be very useful
Bonjour,Serait il possible de voir l avancement de la synchronisation quand elle est demandée ?Cordialement.
It would be wonderful to see the status when a sync has finished or still in progress.
Oliver Schneider commented
and one last suggestion, which is extremely important for me, that he shows me below as the last status bar when he synchronized successfully with Google. I have to be able to rely on which one I can see in the calendar.

Show last success sync with google in status line
This really is a must have feature.
If i cannot trust the calender app om ny phone to be om sync it is basically useless to me. This has bitten me so many times, where i've missed meetings etc. I see no other option then to look for alternative calender apps.
You need to add a auto / scheduled triggering og the "sync now" functionallity. If so, i will gladly comeback back.
I have to regularly synchronize calendars of other users and not always have a reliable connection to the Internet. By clicking on the "sync" button, I can not understand when the synchronization is over and what ended, by a malfunction or success.
I am agree this is an issue. when you add an event on a device you expect to find it in the other without to have to manually sync. BC should force sync if new event.
This is a reall issue as we are missing some events due to no auto sync on other devices.
eg: I add event on google calendar from desktop. I quit my desk then check my smartphone to see next event. Sometime I forgot to manually sync and I miss a meeting.

I have discussed this with the developers and they claim "BC doesn't have its own sync abilities and uses only those provided by Android .This requires the presence of the sync partner. The sync intervals depend on the sync intervals depend on the partner. Normally it should happen within a couple of moments."
The problem is the underlying Android sync is unreliable.
BC already has an manual sync capability: "Sync now". Surely auto / schedule functionality can be added to BC to invoke its manual "sync now" function?

The "Sync now" click shows nothing. I like this idea.
Sergei Shir commented
Please add ability to sync automatically - all these independent options:
1) when starting BC app
2) when Internet connection is detected (at least for Wi-Fi)
2) periodically (A) every X hours B) only between configured hours of hte day)
