Synchronizing Calendars Using CalDAV

Calendaring Extensions to WebDAV, referred to as CalDAV, enables clients to access scheduling information on remote servers. As an extension to WebDAV, CalDAV (defined by RFC 4791) uses the iCalendar format to manage calendar data. CalDAV enables multiple clients to access the same information for use in cooperative planning and information sharing.

The Calendar app provides both the Primary CalDAV address and the iOS/OSX CalDAV address. Using these addresses, you can use CalDAV-compatible programs (for example, Kontact, Evolution, or Mozilla Thunderbird with the Lightning Add-on) using the address provided.

Note

The Lightning Add-on doesn’t support using multiple accounts on a single server as a default. You need to set calendar.network.multirealm to true in the Config Editor of Mozilla Thunderbird to be able to use multiple accounts.

In DAV Server view you can get the Primary CalDAV address. The link is: http://example.org/phcloud/carddav.php

    Edit Event View Details

    The application contains the following fields and controls:

  6. (Optional) Click the Repeating tab to define any repeat settings for the event.

    The Repeating tab provides the option of not repeating the event(default) or repeating the event daily, weekly, every weekday, biweekly, monthly, or yearly. In addition, by selecting the Advanced button in the Repeating tab, each repeat option provides different levels of customization to better define your repeat requirements for the event.

    The following table helps to define the options for each repeat rule:
