@alefattorini are there any status updates? As I can see, in the webtop5 roadmap the point “CardDav/CalDav support” is crossed out. What does that mean? It’s already done or just “Is not done!”?

Good question @maddin I’m sure that the @webtop_team may have an answer for that

It means that the CardDAV/CalDav support has been removed from the roadmap.
AFAIK it was removed since there weren’t enough requests from customers, but I’m sure @nethcman and @webtop_team have a better answer.

We have to take into account many requests by the community as well. Just to mention some of them:




Add me to the requester list, I’d like to see my WebTop contacts under TB! :wink:

CalDAV/CardDAV support is still on our internal roadmap.
Can’t say what happened to NS public document.

When we talk about WebTop5, we mainly mean to talk about the whole web application, as a replacement of local desktop applications, notoriously hard to maintain and control.

So, my first important question, before going on with the bunch of requests, is: why do you still want to use TB instead of the full featured WT5?

:slight_smile:

Happy to hear it! I was told this feature has been dropped, this is why I updated the public document.
Could you please open a pull request and keep the public roadmap in sync with your internal one?
(This is the file: https://github.com/NethServer/webtop5/blob/master/README.md)

Because TB feels like home :smiley: I still use a couple of desktop applications: TB for the mail and Pidgin for the chat.
But you’re totally right! :smiley: I’m trying to replace my TB with WT5 starting from now!

Hi,

With me it is a question, how much calendar I can sync with webtop5 and ActiveSync on the androids of my family. Sogo was able to synchronize only one calender and one address book with ActiveSync. Can Webtop 6 calendars or address books? So because of the limitation in Sogo I asked for the caldav-Support in webtop 5.

thx

Ohps…I think there was a misunderstanding by my side…

The CalDAV/CardDAV support on our internal roadmap is not what you intended, it’s the other way : support for external CalDAV/CarDAV accounts to be added as WT5 calendars/contacts resources.

Actually I don’t remember the real reason why we ditched the implementation of the CalDAV/CardDAV server components in WT5. I will double-check this.

Anyway, we may discuss about putting it back in the roadmap, if there are good reasons for it.

With WT5, using ActiveSync, you can synchronize all or some of the calendars of a single account (using the “synchronize” checkbox in the calendar/contacts resource properties).
Then you may also have many ActiveSync accounts configured on the same device, each with its own calendars and contacts.

Does this answer your question?

Some of them had already been replied.

Activesync in sogo it is one calendar and one addressbook but hopefully you can have several caldav and carddav with sogo.

Never use the Microsoft protocol and you are safe

ActiveSync in WebTop 4/5 is any personal calendar and any personal addressbook, being able to choose wich ones are enabled for sync.
For shared calendar, there is no way to receive them directly on the personal account via ActiveSync.
You may always configure more ActiveSync accounts with the shared ones credentials.

So with webtop i can have several calendars/addressbooks and sync them by activesync.

The killer feature of activesync is the one credential to sync all ressources…i must admit :slight_smile:

Yes, we’re looking for a possibility.
We will talk with the z-push guys to see if there is any plan for a feature like this directly in the protocol.
Or we will look for a custom implementation, letting WT send shared calendars through the same user, masking them as personal calendars in some way…this would be a trick.

I don’t really understand because you use the future, it is not yet available ( several calendars/addressbooks for one activesync account) but you are working for it ?

Future for receiving shared calendars (the ones received via share from another user).
Present for my personal calendars: they already work.
