I finally got around to implementing the import in the other direction (from Google to Zimbra). Check it out: https://calsync.widgeterian.com/

I applied this procedure: https://wiki.zimbra.com/wiki/How_to_syn ... _calendars
It only works for one Gmail account. Does it work for multiple users on the same domain?

So last weekend I wrote a utility https://calsync.widgeterian.com/. It's very basic. You log in with Google account, then log int to Zimbra. Then, select source calendar and target calendar and save the options. It saves your auth token in Google Datastore, so it will work until your auth token expires. After than, you'll need to come back to the website, log in and save the settings again. For now, it runs the sync task every 6 hours. Open to suggestions on how to add zimbra authentication without having to save login/password in the app. The sync is only one way for now (your Zimbra events will be reflected on your Google Calendar).

Quick update: Zimbra to Google Calendar sync application now has a new address: https://calsync.widgeterian.com/. Please use this address instead of the old one to manage your calendar settings and subscriptions.

It seems like working solution, but has 1 month shift: event on Google calendar is shown on Zimbra one mont earlier

Could you elaborate please? I haven't noticed this problem before and no one has reported it yet. Could send me a screenshot of what's not working correctly?

This is pretty bizarre, so I'd like to debug it. Could you email me at greg@widgeterian.com and tell me what your GMail address is, so I can search the logs for what's happening with your account?
