Contacts and Calendar sync

Post by mmarif4u » Mon Aug 14, 2017 1:56 am

Hi,

I am wondering if it is possible to sync contacts and calendar data to my phone(android) and the other way around.

Regards

Hello mmarif4u!
You can sync your calendar using iCal

concerning Contacts there is no sync, import only

Thanks Maxim.

The calendar seems to be feed only which means i can only sync it only way, cant edit on the phone or add any entry to it. Or maybe i am missing something here?

Is there some milestone by OO to provide caldav/carddav etc which is universal and easy to access across different platforms.

Because now a days if someone really want to use one package(mail, cal, contacts etc). It should have access across web/mobile easily for better usability and productivity like Google/M$.

Hello mmarif4u!
Time of synchronization depends on other calendars (Google for example). We refresh our links every 5 min., it means that when you edit your OO calendar the changes will be accessible after 5 min. but how often, for example, Google refresh OO calendar link we do not know.

There is no milestone because the priority for us is online editors first of all, but we will be glad to hear your suggestions and feedbacks around this thread.

Is there something new after three months?
Features of editor are perfect. But now we need two-way synchronization of the calendar. At present, this is an hardly to sell solution from a business perspective. Or do you have any idea how to resolve the synchronization of the calendar with some extension?

Hello cantabrico!
Thank you for your feedback!
We understand how two-way synchronization of the calendar is important for users.

Hi everyone.

Has this feature been added? Doesn't look like it but thought I'd check. Or maybe there's a workaround?

I'm currently running a trial version and was ready to commit until I discovered the lack of calendar sync. that's a deal breaker for me.

Thanks.

Hello mormegil49!
The calendar will be changed in the 10th version of the Community server. Calendar autosynchronization will work via caldav protocol. After this will be added Contact autosynchronization.

Thanks for the quick reply Maxim.

Is there an estimate on when the auto sync for calendar and contacts will be available?
