I'm using org-gcal with org-agenda.
Because org-gcal seems to strip entries of any TODO markers, I would like to create entries in my org-gcal synced file by using refile to copy over entries from my to-do list file.
However, when I refile an entry with a SCHEDULED: time-stamp into my org-gcal synced file, I get two time stamps in the resulting entry.
For example I start with an entry in my to-do list file that looks like
* Demo trouble with refile SCHEDULED: <2017-07-15 Sat>
Then I refile it to my org-gcal sync file, I get
* Demo trouble with refile :PROPERTIES: :LINK: [[https://www.google.com/calendar/event?HIDDEN][Go to gcal web page]] :ID: vrvehri7aa1lktb6u1aee15roc :END: <2017-07-15 Sat> SCHEDULED: <2017-07-15 Sat>
And the two time stamps cause the entry to show up twice in my agenda view.
However, if I start without an entry with a time stamp that has no SCHEDULED: prefix, then things work better. For example, if I start with
* Demo no trouble with refile <2017-07-15 Sat>
Then after refiling to my org-gcal synced file I get
* Demo no trouble with refile :PROPERTIES: :LINK: [[https://www.google.com/calendar/event?HIDDEN][Go to gcal web page]] :ID: 4irlnqb3g1u6nv29gq9tiockbk :END: <2017-07-15 Sat>
I can imagine at least two ways of fixing my issue. One would be if I could stop the "C-c C-s" scheduling command from adding the SCHEDULED: prefix before the time stamp. Another solution would be if I could make the refile command automatically reformat the entry before inserting it into the org-gcal synced file.
Currently, to get around the problem I'm adding time stamps by going to the agenda file and using "C-c ." to get around the problem, but this is very unsatisfactory.
