ICSdroid now supports VALARM in VEVENTs. At the moment, there’s no option for adding custom alarms for all events, though.
No task imported

I’ve installed ICSx⁵ on two Android systems. In both cases, I’ve managed to import an .ics file, but only events are imported. No task is visible whatever the task app I use to look up for them. Whant can be wrong?
Thanks in advance,
At the moment, ICSx5 doesn’t support tasks.
Can you maybe provide more details about your use case / which feed you use etc? I have never seen a Webcal feed with tasks yet.
This is a total surprise to me. Why on earth someone would want to sync a calendar and still ignore the tasks in the process?
Anyway, my use case: In my computer, Thunderbird keeps a personal calendar in a .ics file. I don’t want a Google calendar. Privacy first. My .ics calendar file is kept updated into a cloud service, which I access within my phone. I’d like to have this file periodically synced with my local, phone calendar. My calendar is fed up with tasks, more than with events. And I really need to have those tasks available inside my phone.
Forgive my poor English. If necessary, I may try to clarify a bit more.
Did you consider using DAVx5 already with a CalDAV server? ICSx5 was originally done for simple calendar subscription. But we will consider this as a future feature, although I think that you’re the first one requesting it. Thank you!
Indeed, I have considered that. But I thought it a little overkill. “Should I sign on a (paid) CalDAV server? Should I install a private CalDAV server at home?” I don’t know yet.
Meanwhile, are you aware of a good CalDAV server that I should have a look at?
Again, many thanks.
There is a pretty good list here:
All should work fine (more or less) Most people with DAVx5 are using Nextcloud - and therefore it is pretty well tested. You can either get a hosted Nextcloud or host it yourself - but you can also go for an email provider like fastmail, mailbox, mail.com, gmx.net etc.
Thank you very much.

Consider mine the second request please.
Having tasks synced as well is of major importance.
I currently export them as calendar entries but despite being much less useful, it’s plain ugly.
