Sync calendar to Samsung Galaxy S5 from Samsung tablet


I just purchased a Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo and want to sync the calendar with my Samsung tablet. I am able to sync new events, posted to either the tablet or the phone, but the calendar on the new phone won't update with previously posted information from my tablet. What am I doing wrong?

Make sure you're looking at a calendar synced to the same google account
If it syncs new events, shouldn't it sync existing ones?
On my phone, under setting in the calendar, it has Samsung Calendar under one email (which is the email attached to my google account) and Events and Reminders under my gmail address. Is that the problem? On my tablet, in settings in the calendar, it has Calendar checked under the email attached to my google account.

Use google calendar If you look under accounts you'll see a switch to sync the calendar.

The switch is set to autosync for both and it syncs new posts to both calendars. If it syncs new posts, shouldn 't it sync existing ones too?

You should be able to flick the switch off and on and that will force it to sync now. But you'll need to be viewing the calendar for the same account on each device
