With NextCloud 14 supporting accepting the meeting invitations via web interface, this important functionality is finally here.
I have an issue with synchronized meetings on Android as participants who accept an invitation show up double - once as still pending and once as confirmed.
I could probably provide more information however I’m hoping you could try this simple scenario and confirm whether the issue is with synchronization. I tried two different calendar apps and they both show exactly the same results in terms of participants so I reckon it’s the data issue.
Thanks for the great synchronizer, btw!
Thanks for your report! Can you please provide exact steps to reproduce the problem, as described in [READ BEFORE POSTING] What’s required to diagnose a problem?
Hi, thanks for the quick response. These would be the simple steps to reproduce:
- create a meeting in Next Cloud Calendar;
- invite Attendee by entering email address;
- log in to invited email account and click Accept in the invitation email, wait to get the confirmation page;
- (do the above with any number of participants)
- as the organizer, synchronize the calendar to an Android device using DAVdroid,
- one invited user shows as confirmed
- the invited user is listed twice in the list of Attendees, once as pending/invited and the second time as confirmed
Hope this helps.
Here is the link to the feature, delivered in NextCloud 14:
So, obviously the server is NextCloud 14, and the sync is the latest version of DAVdroid available in Play Store.
I’ve used aCalendar+ and Business Calendar2 calendar apps on Android.
@cick0 Thanks for the instructions. When doing so, the event from Nextcloud 14.0.1 contains:
SUMMARY:Test Event ATTENDEE;ROLE=REQ-PARTICIPANT;RSVP=TRUE;PARTSTAT=NEEDS-ACTION;CUTYPE=INDIVI DUAL;SCHEDULE-STATUS=1.1:MAILTO:email@example.com ATTENDEE;PARTSTAT=ACCEPTED:mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org ORGANIZER;CN=XXXXX:MAILTO:email@example.com
As you can see, it lists the same attendee (
firstname.lastname@example.org) twice (one time with status “needs action”, and one time with status “accepted”), and this is what DAVdroid synchronizes.
I don’t think DAVdroid should eliminate duplicates sent by the server… guess this is rather a server thing? At least in RFC 6638 there are no duplicate
Can you please report this to Nextcloud and provide this thread as reference?

@rfc2822 Thanks a lot for the time and investigation. I’ll submit an issue in NextCloud’s repo and refer to this discussion. Cheers!
The issue has been fixed in Calendar v1.6.3
