Knowing if this is going to be implemented would help me to decide deploy this app in my office, or search for alternative.
right now when you add a calendar you have the option to select multiple calendars when connecting to an own cloud server and sync all the calendars. When you want to add a contact source then you only get radio buttons and you have to run through the dialog of the setup multiple times. I have for example 3 addressbooks I need to sync so I have to type in 3 time the server name, username, etc.
Please follow up here:
your first link:
Okay, but why not create 5 accounts for 5 address books, that is happening when I do this 5 times manually.
Not much information in there, it refers to issue #55, what is issue 55? How can I find that issue?
To summarize: DAVdroid continues Android’s concept of not having multiple address books per account.
When you add one DAVdroid account, exactly one account will be created, and thus you can only add one address book.
To answer your questions:
I’d like to second the request, giving and example of a real use case. We use several address books and one is responsible for keeping some of these actual. Others have the benefit to not need to create same contacts too.
6 People around (2 adults, 4 Kids) using owncloud 8.2
As you can see in this example each of us and I would need to have at least 4-9 accounts (plus different email addresses for each) to get all things done together in a cloud manner. Alternately I could use an/two other (yellow) apps wich creates inside 5 account tabs (and allows modifying) just for contacts but I’d like to support DAVdroid.
Therefore I’d ask for “Please keep this on your ToDo list”, this is a real time safer.
I have exactly the same problem. There are apps which are able do handle multiple adressbooks.
would be great if also davdroid could handle this.
