Hi everyone! I'm experiencing some issues with my jolla (sailfish Saimaa when trying to sync contacts and calendars.

  • First: I have an owndrive host solution with owncloud, when trying to set a webdav account (caldav + carddav) it accepts it but doesn't sync contacts, neither calendars... I can't see them on owndrive, and new contacts created in owndrive aren't downloaded on my jolla.

  • Second: I also own a fruux account, I tried syncing with jolla and it syncs those contacts that aren't from microsoft exchange (yes, I have also an outlook account, in fact I'd like to switch it with owndrive and/or fruux), but does not sync calendars at all. I guess it doesn't sync outlook contacts because they aren't loaded in the phone memory but just on outlook (deleting exchange account will lead to delete those contacts on the phone, in facts).

How to solve this? Am I doing something wrong?

i think you may have the same problem like all who wanted to use the caldav and carddav interface...
But each type have some little bit differences. Shortly i get that apple have some specific addition to caldav and carddav. don't know for owncloud and others if they follow the common standard of the interface, or some little addition ones...
i have cozy and it doesn't work too. Some fixes are already done and put on the jolla release forge.
But i don't know when it will appears on the surface (in which future release)....
Should be soon, but i have the feeling not on this 2.0.1.x one

Ok, and what about copying all outlook contacts on the phone memory?

Hello @d, the most simpl solution was for me to export my contacts to a allcontacts.vcf file and import it after I have cleaned the phone up into the phone book. Another solution might be using the software Jolla Communicatior. I hope this helps you furhter. You could also use owncloud to share the file you are creating as the owncloud client works for transfering single files. Kind regards,
