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.

I received again the synchronization error. Solved again by de-selecting - again! - Carddav.
And it is for exactly the same issue as before:
(printscreen taken 2 hours ago):
I know that I did not touch the phone as it was linked by usb on my desktop (hence always fully charged), and I was away 3 days without it (and with no one accessing my place): it was simply store there, alone in the dark…
There is something that triggers Carddav, but what ? … a mystery
(edit : all updates are manual, never auto. However, I recall having authorized several manual updates: an Android system update about “WebView”, “Booking”, “Visorando”, “Meteo France” and “Firefox”)
I’ve made these settings (already some time before posting):
exclude DAVx from the system’s automatic (power) management
allow Auto-start, secondary start from other apps, continue executing the app in background
I do not know, why it says “Power saving disabled: no” because there is no other settings that can be done.
For testing purposes, I set the sync intervall for the calendar to 120 min and for tasks to 15 min.
Result: ==> calendar is sync’ed, tasks are not
Thanks @rfc2822, it helps a lot
I managed to sign in with DAVx⁵ using the app password.
Contacts synchronize correctly but aCalendar only wants to sync my main gmail account.
My wife’s gmail account is “forgotten”: it is not in acalendar’s list of calendars, yet it is duly added and associated with my main account
Why such a restriction? Is the only solution to sign in with DAVx⁵ to my wife’s gmail account?
This solution is not very privacy friendly, it seems to me.
Thanks for the update!
@savornicesei said in SmarterMail integration:
The way to sync contact categories as a new contact or as categories is selectable in DavX5, before initial sync
You can also change it at a later time in the account settings. Which method is the right one for SmarterMail, according to your tests?
The customizable phone numbers labels are not supported by SM. Unfortunately, I added one on my phone, synced it to SM and the default ‘Home’ phone number was also lost
Those things are supported well by DAVx⁵, while many servers have problems with that. So I guess these are missing features in SmarterMail. If there is any specific thing you’re missing in DAVx⁵, please let us know.
SM has separate fields for Address, City, State, Country but after sync, all the address fields were concatenated and added in the ‘Home Address’ field.
Does this help? https://www.davx5.com/faq/entering-structured-addresses
Editing the server URL is not really possible, because internally this is a very complex matter and there are many possibilities for data loss because data has internally to be copied partially (only the unsynced data?) to a new calendar/address book. There are so many cases where this could result in chaos, so we probably will never add this feature. All you can do is create the second account, export unsynced data manually on the device from the first account and import it to the newly created second account. There are helper apps like ical Import/Export afaik.
Confirm the regression too.
got I9300 with replicant 6.0 0003
Long time ago, add account to davdroid installed from f-droid. Following upgrade from f-droid repository and work well with latest version of Davx5.
But have to reinstall os, reinstall Davx5, and cant register new account with the same stack of error when trying this url: https://domain.tld/baikal/html/dav.php
And when trying https://domain.tld/baikal/html/dav.php/calendars/user/work/, Davx5 print crash popup.
Install an old davdroid apk and work well. Work well with Thunderbird too for calendar and Inverse SOGo Connector for address book. Not a server side problem.
Thanks a lot for this software ! Happy to use it daily.
@bungabunga said in Can not sync CalDAV since upgraded my phone to Android Q:
Etar calendar app on my phone dvice
I think this is the most probable explanation. Somehow dtEnd was set to zero instead of null, which caused the problem. Normally, only calendar apps do such modifications.
do you think there’s something you can do on DAVx5 side so that one false event wouldn’t block syncing other events?
Unfortunately, this is more complicated than it sounds. At the moment, uploads are performed before downloads and upload errors interrupt the sync process. The reason is that incomplete uploads might have later impact on synchronization. For instance, the synchronization would see that the server has another version of the event and overwrite local changes (because the server always wins); or even delete the whole event if it hasn’t been uploaded once before.
So, while it might be possible to optimize this, it would be a complicated change and at the moment that’s not a priority for us.
@rfc2822 said in Appointments are duplicated:
@greylisted Although I don’t really understand the problem: As stated in DAVx⁵, Android will use the account name as ORGANIZER when you create an event. This is probably the reason?
OK, thank you
