Usage

  • Use an item Sync now to provide a manual synchronization
    Rucni synchronizace CalDAV uctu v Androidu

Working
  • synchronization of events added via Android
  • synchronization of events added via webmail
  • synchronization of events modified via webmail 
    • change of time, date, transfering events to all-day event and back
  • synchronization of all-day events modified via Android

Known issues

  • changing of an existing event with a time in Android – the only tested way is to first convert the event to full day:
    • choose the event you want to modify,
    • convert it to full day event -> synchronize it,
    • now modify the full day synchronization and make the changes (date, time, name...) -> and synchronize.
  • Repeating events can synchronize wrong way if you modify (delete) only certain events in a

If an error occurs during synchronization - CalDAV sync error (general), it is necessary to delete the event that is causing it (usually an event with a set time that has been modified in Android Calendar). Only then you will be able to continue with the synchronization.
