After adding successfully a CalDAV account ("General CalDAV" for owncloud) you cannot edit the server settings anymore.

There is no menu entry "server-settings" like for email accounts or "edit server-settings" for Exchange accounts.

You can only change the password but not the username. Of course you can delete and add a new CalDAV account.

I second to that. Not sure its a bug, though. However its is still the case in So maybe this could be commented by the developers if a feature request would be appreciated. I think yes: Given the fact that CalDAV support is still in experimental stage, checking on all parameters would be all the more helpful.

This is annoying as my CalDAV provider is changing the server hostname. It's not a problem for IMAP/SMTP because there you can edit the server information, but the CalDAV information is not visible in the Sailfish interface.

You could try to change some information directly from the accounts database. My caldav/imap provider changed hostnames, so I had to change the server address.

The accounts database seems to be in .config/libaccounts-glib/accounts.db.

sqlite3 -header accounts.db 'update Settings set value = "https://caldav.newserver.com/" where key = "server_address" and value like "%oldserver%"'

Might not work immediately though, the values might be cached in one or more running services.

I also managed to add another local calendar when I first got my Jolla a few years back – it's great to have access to the full Linux system and being able to edit sqlite databases and files in other open formats.

Note: I don't take responsibility for anybody messing up their system this way. Don't try this if you're not sure about what you're doing or if you can fix it if something goes wrong.

Thx. Can you elaborate on adding a second calendar?

As for editing I suggest using sshfs and one of the many sqlite guis out there
