@jon_black Great! I invited you to the beta testers group. I can upload a file then for you in the beta forum and you can test it out. I think we’ll be ready in the next few days. You’d have to remove the current DAVdroid and add an account with the beta version. So be sure to have all of your contacts on the server.
Syncing tasks does not work
I tried it with OpenTasks ans some other apps, but syncing tasks from a CalDAV server does not work with DAVdroid. For OpenTasks not even the sync account is recognised…
Any idea if this is a bug or how this can be resolved?
At the moment, OpenTasks is the only tasks app supported by DAVdroid.
Did you have a look at https://davdroid.bitfire.at/configuration/?
Installing DAVdroid after OpenTasks did solve the problem. But this sounds like a bug for me (in whatever of both applications) - what happens when I install updates in wrong order?
It’s an Android bug which has been fixed with Android 6 (this is why your Android version is important in support requests), and on https://davdroid.bitfire.at/configuration/ it’s recommended that you install OpenTasks before installing DAVdroid (first line).
The order of updates does not matter.
Happy to read that it now works for you!
