Default calendar work around/sync help

Coming back to Android from the iPhone. I previously had the original EVO and loved it. However, I know there is a work around for the calendar that I need and I can't remember how to do it or where to find it. The issue:

My wife and I use our calendars to keep all our appts and kid activities in order. She sends invites from Outlook. I use Gmail as my primary. When she sends the invite, I cannot simply reply and have it show up in my calendar on my One. Also, I can't add her as an invitee when adding an event in my calendar. I know I got around this previously but as I said, I can't remember or find it. Could someone help my please!?

Thank you in advance!

Your wife should download the gmail calendar app on her iPhone.

That won't solve my issue. Thanks though.

Let me rephrase:
I use the Gmail app. When I receive invites from anyone, I cannot reply to them nor add them to my calendar. I use the stock calendar app. I know I have done this in the past when I had my EVO. I can't remember if I had to add/configure my mail differently or do something with my calendar app. Can anyone help with this?

When I needed that in the past, this worked for me -

If not that one, perhaps one of the related apps would help.

I guess I'm having a hard time understanding why you can't accept as I can accept invites from Outlook with Gmail all day long, but perhaps I've done something within my Google calendar set-up that I've long forgotten (sorry).

If your wife is using outlook on a personal computer, I HIGHLY suggest linking your family appt calendar with a Google calendar so that way nothing has to be sent, accepted, etc. Even if you find a solution for the Outlook/Gmail thing. Good luck and keep us posted.

Default Can't sync calendar

When I got the HTC One the other day, I was using Google Calendar as the default calendar so I thought once I synced the calendar on the HTC One with the Google calendar I would have everything but that doesn't seem to be the case. Also have Pocket Informant calendar installed and that has the same problem. Events for last month and this month and some recurring birthdays are there and also the current month but nothing else. Is there a way to get previous events reloaded in? The events are the main thing. They are all on the Google calendar when I look at the web page.

Tried installing Calengoo, another calendar program, and told it to sync to Google calendar and it syncs everything going back several years. But in the native calendar that comes with the HTC One and PI I only get the current month and recurring dates like birthdays.

Tried uninstalling and reinstalling PI. Oddly enough when I uninstalled it the phone rebooted. When I reinstalled it everything was gone. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

Default Calendar highlights?

When I input an event in calendar, it shows up highlighted "yellow" - it's always been blue... any suggestions on why it changed? Would like to have the blue highlight back!

look at what the color is of your email account. i have like 7 email accounts and they are all a different color, so the calendar event will correspond to the color of the email account.

does that make sense what I am saying?

Also, each calendars event a different color even with the same account.

Looked into ALL my Calendars... NOTHING is checked yellow. So confused - maybe I should do 3rd party cal app. Too bad, the stock calendar was fine for my needs.

how many email accounts do you have?

when you go into your email account tree, on the left you see the color of that account. that color should correspond to the color of the calendar entries you make.

as mentioned, i have several addresses of different colors and any entries i make under my corporate account, will be orange. if i make calendar entries under my msn account, those will be green, etc...
