Contacts: anniversary is lost during sync



  • Beside the birthday of a contact (BDAY in VCF), android supports additional dates, such as an anniversary. Until now (DAVdroid 0.5.3-alpha), these fields get lost during synchronization of a contact which uses these fields.

    The export feature of the android contacts app generates an VCF file including this information in the form:

    X-ANDROID-CUSTOM:vnd.android.cursor.item/contact_event;2013-01-01;1;;;;;;;;;;;;;
    

    This entry represents an anniversary (the 1 at the end) with date 2013-01-01.

    It would be very nice, if DAVdroid could implement this field type in order to prevent lost data.

    Thank you very much!

    This is because VCard 3 doesn't support anniversaries. I will see what I can do.



  • Oh, the solution was much easier than I thought ...

    Thank you very much for this great app and the fast support!

    (I'm now only looking forward to a solution for the category/group field in contacts [#48])
