Configuration with apps

How to configure your calendar with several apps and devices

Thunderbird/Lightning

First you need the URL’s of your calendar. The easiest way to obtain these is through our web-calendar: webcal.soverin.net

When you hover over a calendar (on the left side) you will see a cogwheel icon:

When you click the icon, you will see a new screen with a URL for CalDav clients:

When you copy this URL and use this in Thunderbird/Lightning it should work just fine.

iPhone and iPad

If you're not using a major online service provider, you can still set up and use any standards-based email, calendar, and/or contacts service you like, including your own!

  1. Launch the Settings app from your Home screen.
  2. Tap Mail , Contacts , or Calendar.
  3. Tap Accounts.
  4. Tap Add Account.

  1. Tap Other.
  2. Select the account you wish to configure.
  3. Enter in your service information. If you don't know it off-hand, you'll need to get it from a system administrator or whomever runs your IMAP/PPO, CalDAV, and/or CardDAV account.
  4. Tap the Next button in the upper right hand corner, and your device will verify the account.
  5. If everything looks right, tap on Done. Your account will now start syncing with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

Android

Android doesn't have it's own program to set up CalDAV or CardDAV, but works with apps from the Google Play store.

We recommend DAVdroid (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=at.bitfire.davdroid)

Once the app is installed, the following guide can be taken to set up the CalDAV and CardDAV:

  • Open the DAVdroid app and tap " add account"

  • Fill in your full e-mail address and tap op " Create Account"

or

  • Make sure your e-mail address and password are filled in correctly on the next screen and tap on " Login" (Optional you can add the URL of our server: https://calendar.soverin.net:8443)

  • On this screen you can select the address book and calendar(s) you want to use on your Android device.
