Hi Bas,

The way I did it to go to calendar tab and to add new calendar. In the 
dialogue you would see Google calendar and task. Just click on it and it's 

One problem though I have is that some times the syncing the calendar entries 
does not necessary work and I have to manually delete the calendar and add it
