Already having a server for e-mail, calendars, tasks etc. I really would like to have to maintain two of the kind at the same time. It would be great if it were possible to sync calenders and tasks (the ones found in project for example) to be syncronised with an existing calDav/cardDav server to be able to have tasks and dates be shown in Thunderbird or on my android phone without having to use a special app like the ERPNext app. The app is great, but as it is not really integrated with the rest of my work and organizational habbits I can’t really make use of it.
I’m sure I’m not the only one keen for this feature. Please tell me what I can do to help, thank you!
would strongly agree to have CalDAV and CardDAV in here. In my experience the Protocol is not the issue in general. But having the mapping of the Contact data in relation with the companies could be interesting. Further handling of multiple entries for phone numbers emails etc.
Getting to know ERPNext a little better I can see why it is a brave endevour to take on calander-sync to an external device with calDav. As a lot of “things” inside ERPNext are calender or event related. For example tasks in projects and the project itself and all timesheets connected to it could all be calDav items. These then again are connected to users and other items like projects tasks and customers. I can see this beeing very tricky when sharing and setting permissions. Also I think no one would like to have 100+ calendars to chose from on his phone or inside thunderbird.
A baby step I would like to suggest though is to implement *.ics attachments for maybe just a few items. The idea is, that when I for example create a ToDo for someone there is a *.ics attached which he can then again load into his program or device of choice. Any ideas on that?
Unfortunatelly I can only provide on hand experience but no coding effort.
not yet no. I have had a look at the data migration tool. It should probably be possible to do this but we have not got the necessary recources to go ahead right now. I’ll let you all know if make any progress.
Thank you. I am just talking to @joelios and will be installing this on our test server.
For everyone else:
firetesting is not the function itself but an app including the required functionality. What libracore has built is a python file will calls a function on a iCal library which needs to be installed on your server first. This function collects information from a given docType (in this case Event) an puts all the information from events marked “public” into an iCal-feed.
Further there is a docType which should be created to be able to set some settings on a UI. For the moment this needs to be done by hand.
Having all this done you will be able to subscribe to an iCal-feed in any compatible calendar-app like, thunderbird, outlook, apples calendar etc.
The calendar is a one-way sync from your erpnext instance to you calendar.
