I’d love to have options like
synch only between X o’clock and Y o’clock
synch only on ( ) Monday ( ) Tuesday ( ) Wednesday… etc
The reason for this request is servers that are not available at certain times, eg office machines that are switched off at night and at the week end. Choosing time frames, when to synch and when not, would avoid error messages.
If you have a problem with DAVx⁵, please:
Try the latest DAVx⁵ version. Use the latest version of your server software, if applicable.
Read the Configuration, FAQ and manual pages carefully. The most common issues are explained there.
Try the forum search – most questions have already been answered.
Have a look at the debug info/error details/logs. You can often get an idea what’s the problem yourself.
Search the the Web for the problem, maybe ask friends who are willing to help.
Make sure that it’s not a server or networking problem. Search the FAQ/forums/bug tracker of your server software, too. Many supposed DAVx⁵ bugs are server or networking problems.

When posting, please provide as much information as you can:
Go to DAVx⁵ / Settings (left navigation drawer in the main screen) / Debug info. Send these information to yourself (using the “Share” action, for instance by email). Paste the info to fpaste.org or a similar service and provide a link. It contains the most important information about your device and configuration.
Describe exactly what you were doing (steps to reproduce), what you tried to achieve and what your problem is. Imagine someone else who wants to reproduce the problem to find a solution and provide all necessary information.
Give information about your environment: what is your server software (including version), what are your calendar URLs, do other clients work, etc.
If possible, try to explain what you already have tried to solve your problem.
If you get “No CalDAV/CardDAV service found” when you try to add an account:
Tap “View logs”. Send those logs to yourself (using the “Share” action, for instance by email).
Paste the logs to fpaste.org or a similar service and provide a link (feel free to let it expire in a month).
If you get an error notification while synchronizing:
Tap the notification. A debug info activity will appear.
Send the debug info to yourself (using the “Share” action, for instance by email).
Paste the debug info (≠ logs) to fpaste.org or a similar service and provide a link (feel free to let it expire in a month). Short debug output can be inserted in the text, but please quote with ``` (at the beginning and the end).
If additional logs are required to diagnose the problem, continue below.
Your problem doesn’t cause a notification or you need verbose logs?
DAVx⁵ / Settings (left navigation drawer in the main screen) / Enable “Verbose logging”. A permanent notification tells you that logging is now active.
Do whatever causes your problem (e.g. “Refresh calendars”, or initiate a sync).
Use the notification to share the log. You may have to expand the notification to see the “Share” action.
Send the logs to yourself (for instance by by email, or with Share with HTTP).
Remove private data from the logs, if applicable.
Paste the logs to fpaste.org or a similar service and provide a link (feel free to let it expire in a month). Short parts of the logs can be inserted in the text, but please quote with ``` (at the beginning and the end).
If your problem has been solved, it would be kind to let other people (who were willing to help you) know the actual solution.
@rfc2822 Just like Kevin, I have 2 additional calendars in my “Other Calendars”: they’re my wife’s. (I only retrieved my main calendar)
You indicate to enter directly the specific other calendar URLs.
Please can you specify a little more:
Is this url the private address in iCal format that I find in my wife’s google account (bottom of the “Other agendas” settings)?
Where specifically should I fill in this URL? Maybe under webcal tab… how? If it is via the “Login with URL and username” section, do I have to enter my wife’s Google credentials?
Is it necessary for my wife to give specific authorization to my gmail account for each of the other 2 calendars beforehand?
Hey, thank you for the quick answer! The code for Silesian is szl and my entire device is set to that code as well with Polish set as fallback. As far as I know there is no option to set language manually in DAVx5, is there? In any case, Silesian on Transifex is here:
Yes, please find the description in the manual:
Regardless of why a collection is read-only, it will be shown as read-only () in the DAVx⁵ collection list.
Also, to the right of each calendar name there is an icon… a box with some dots inside… does that represent a calendar item?
Yes, CalDAV collections can support events and tasks; there are two icons to represent that.
All clear now!
I think/hope I am not the only one in the world who need some further explanation on (for many people obvious) things.
Maybe it is a good idea to post your last explanation somewhere in the manual.
Thanks for your help, I won’t bother you anymore…
Managed DAVx5 is the correct app for EMM/MDM solutions because it offers all the restictions and customization options which can be set from the distance for the devices.
DAVx5 itself can’t be rolled out because Google does not offer mass-purchasing for paid apps outside of USA and Canada. You can only roll-out free apps such as Managed DAVx5, which you will have to get a seperate license key from us to be used.
Please get in contact with us via firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the details!
