Talk about anything that doesn't fit in the other catagories :) (and of course is about Group-Office)

Tasks sync via caldav?

Postby muonit » Mon Aug 12, 2013 1:10 pm

Hello,
is it possible with group office to sync tasks e.g. with android phones with the app "Tasks" from Marten Gajda? In tests it works with caldav urls from owncloud, but with group office's caldav implementation I see no remote tasks in the app "Tasks", tested on 2 cellphones just now. Group Office is Version: 4.2.6 and caldav is SabreDAV 1.8.5-stable.
In comparison, owncloud is using SabreDAV 1.7.6...
Active sync doesn't work and I'd rather use caldav.
Thanks for any pointers,
best regards,
Udo Puetz

Tasks can be included with the calendar. You can select the tasklist in the calendar properties.

Hello,
you mean the calendar ("caldav") settings on the cellphone in the accounts section, right?
While there is a tick for tasks with the group office server caldav entry, the tasks list doesn't show in the "task" app. I tried on both cellphones again - one simply lists the "local tasks" and no more (my test cell) and my personal cellphone has 2 tasks syncs already plus the local one - but the group office doesn't show up there. The other two are with two owncloud instances - and both are with caldav. The test phone is android 4.0.x, my is 4.1.x

Maybe I can show you the problem on the test phone via skype or something?

Best regards and thanks a lot,
Udo Puetz
(BTW: this is for a group office pro installation with support - I just thought I ask here first in case I overlooked something)

No, I mean Calendar -> Administration -> Double click your calendar -> Select the caldav tasklist. These tasks will be included in the caldav function.

Hello,
after selecting a calencar for inclusion in caldav in your described setting and re-configuring the caldav entry in the cellphone it works now! The re-configuring (deleting and new configuration) was necessary, without that the tasks didn't show up.

Thanks for your help - below some lines that you can maybe integrate in http://www.group-office.com/wiki/CalDAV_calendar_server?
Thanks,
Udo Puetz


Android with caldav sync client

Task synchronization
In order to see the group office tasks list in your android phone, you need to assign a task list to be synchronized.
In Group Office, go to Calendar -> Administration -> Double click your calendar -> Select the caldav tasklist. These tasks will be included in the caldav function.
Also, install the cost free https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... dmfs.tasks "Tasks" app from google play. Then, configure the caldav settings like described below.
If you already had caldav configured, delete the account and re-configure it, else the tasks won't appear in the "Tasks" app.

Calendar synchronization
After installing "caldav sync beta" https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... caldav.lib from google play, in the settings menu, under accounts, there is a new account provider named "caldav". In the caldav provider list following, choose the top entry "caldav" again.
For the server address, use the entry from above (e.g. http://www.domain.tld/caldav) and enter your username and password.
You then get a list of available calendars in group office. Choose the one(s) to be synchronized. Name the calendar and finish.
