Client configuration

With the CalDAV calendar server built in you can connect to the Group-Office calendars with other clients. To do this you must first determine your baseURI. Ideally your webserver is configured with an alias:

Alias /caldav /path/to/go/modules/caldav/calendar.php

In that case the base URI to your CalDAV server is:

http(s)://your.url.to.groupoffice/caldav/

Otherwise it's this:

http(s)://your.url.to.groupoffice/modules/caldav/calendar.php/

The Apple iCal client

Connecting with iCal:

  • Go to preferences in the iCal menu
  • Go to the Accounts tab
  • Press the + button to add a new account
  • Select 'CalDAV server' for account type
  • Enter your username, password
  • For server address, enter the full <baseURI>/principals/<your.groupoffice.username>/. Do NOT forget the trailing slash!

The Evolution CalDAV client

Connecting with Evolution:

  • Find your calendar URL at: <baseURI>/calendars/

Select your username and then find your calendar.
Eg. for John Smith: <baseURI>/calendars/jsmith/smith-john-1/

  • Connecting to a CalDAV server is done through the "New > Create new calendar" dialog. In this dialog it is possible to specify a CalDAV location. (Replace http(s) with caldav)

To setup TODO lists through Evolution works the exact same (select New tasklist instead of calendar).

Thunderbird with the lightning plugin

  • Find your calendar URL at: <baseURI>/calendars/

Select your username and then find your calendar.
Eg. for John Smith: <baseURI>/calendars/jsmith/smith-john-1/

  • In the main menu go to: File -> New -> Calendar
  • Select "On the network" in the dialog that pops up
  • Enter the URL you found in the first step

Note about tasklists

With caldav there are only calendars and tasklists are connected to a calendar. So if you have access to someone's calendar in Group-Office you will have access to the associated tasklist as well even if the tasklist is not shared with you! The connected tasklist to a calendar is managed at Calendar -> Administration -> Double click the calendar
