Hi Luca Gasparini,

Since the update, the form for new calendar entries looks a bit strange.
See the picture.



Seems to be an error with German and Spanish language, English and Italian looks okay, maybe just not translated yet.


Hi Markus,

you are right. I changed to english language and it looks good. Thank you.



I think there is a typo?

Where? Can you be more specific?

Yes! The @translations_team might help

Hi, please check our transifex project to help us translate missing texts in german, we will receive your pull reuqests and bring them into the project

@lucag thanks for the effort team webtop.

Il be abit honest, I like testing and tinkering with new software solutions on my spare time.
this helps me identify the best use case for each of the solution.

So far I have installed webtop5 more than 4 times, I try to figure things out, I like some implementations and some things, but mostly I do not get it.

  1. can I replace sogo with webtop5, if needbe ( to understand the first batch)
    can you point me to content that will open my eyes wide open.
    whats the best use case for webtop?

Honestly I like SOGO much more but I have not tried this new version yet. I need webdav, which until this version, webtop did not have. Excited to try this (on a non prod server)


Mee too. But i’m missing in SoGo the two factor Authentification via OTP.



Hi @oneitonitram,
I am very happy that you are trying out WebTop :grinning:

It is a groupware based on the client-less philosophy, platform independent and zero-installation.

Its main feature is to have all the functions of a groupware available comfortably on the browser without having to necessarily use a client.

It is always possible to synchronize the address books and calendars externally via Active Sync (see here) and now also with DAV server (see here).

I hope I’ve given you the ideas necessary to make things clearer on this groupware :wink:


Awesome!! I can’t wait to try it!
