Steps to reproduce:
- I Installed new version of DavX5 from F-Droid
- I Opened Nextcloud Application on your Android smartphone
- I went to settings / Synchronize Calendar and Contacts
- I Loged in with my Nextcloud account and granted access
- I Clicked Create account in Davx5
- I Granted permissions for all
- I Checked box Contacts in Carddav and Personal in Caldav
- I disabled the battery saving settings in my Samsung A20E mobile
- I Clicked orange icon for Synchronizing now
- Seeing message Synchronizing now
- Going to Nextcloud, searchiong all files, but no seeing any backups.
What I am doing wrong? I have read all the instructions and did what I understood. Sorry I am not IT guy and I dont speak so well English.

Going to Nextcloud, searchiong all files, but no seeing any backups.
Which backups would you expect? DAVx5 doesn’t make backups, but synchronizes contacts within the given account.
I think this is your problem/solution: https://www.davx5.com/faq/existing-contacts-are-not-synced (including video)
Does that help?
@rfc2822 Hi, yes, that was the problem. I exported contacts from local do DavX5 account and now the contacts synchronize.
But I couldn’t find how to export/import events from local calendar to davx5 calendar account, so the calendar is still not synchronizing. Is there any manual for exporting calendar? I couldn’t find any possibility in the phone menus…
@rfc2822 OK, I have got it. I had to change the location separately within each one event in calendar. Little bit more work, but got it now… Thanks a lot buying coffe for you
@rzitka Happy that it now works for you. There are calendar apps which can import/export, too (the more advanced calendar apps from the stores).
Maybe we should create a more generic FAQ entry, which includes contacts and events.
