N9, multiple caldav sync entries with same user name

Hi, With N9, is it possible to create multiple CalDAV accounts with the same user name? I am asking this because with Google calendar I have shared calendars with family members, and it is possible to sync to these calendars using my own Google account and with a specific server path. I would just need to have several CalDAV entries in order to sync to each of them? (I am currently using CalDAV to sync to my wife's calendar and Mail for Exchange for my own gmail account but I don't quite like this.) On my previous phone I used GooSync which handled all this, but I don't yet know is it possible to use that with N9. Eero

I am also interested about this CalDav sync in the N9 but I am wondering why it only supports 1 calendar from your google account? There you can add more than 1 but this N9 caldav only displays the default calendar from google? There is also special holidays calendar in the google and that would be also good if could get those also displayed in the N9 with one caldav.

Re: N9, multiple caldav sync entries with same user name

I can get a non default calendar (like my wife's calendar, which she has shared with me), by using a longer path in the server field. Maybe there is a magic path for the holiday calendars too? My issue is that I was only able to have one CalDAV entry for my.name@gmail.com, so I could only see my calendar or her calendar but not both. I did test this only once because it took some time to get it right.. I just got the idea that Google accepts multiple versions of mail addresses, if those work also as CalDAV accounts, that might be the key here. Eero

Re: N9, multiple caldav sync entries with same user name

As I stated in an another thread, this is possible and you can get all your calendars to N9 with caldav. You just simply need to go to 

 

https://www.google.com/calendar/iphoneselect

 

and pick all the calendars you want to synchronize.  Then you can login with your username and password and use https://www.google.com/ as server.

looks like that url for setting up the google calender has done the trick. Only had to disable and turn in caldav and there was all the calendars I activated for the sync.

Re: N9, multiple caldav sync entries with same user name

Seems to work, great!

 

For some reason  I had  to write the server as https://www.google.com (without trailing slash), but the reason might have been a mistake that I did somewhere else.

Ah. That trailing slash drove me crazy, thank you!

Re: N9, multiple caldav sync entries with same user name

This doesn't sync at all. I can see that the calendar names are there but no synching is done. Adding to a calendar, besides the original, doesn't update those google calendars.

 

Starts to be annoyed with this... Takes too much time

 

Anyone else with this problem?

Re: N9, multiple caldav sync entries with same user name

From an other thread, which I started:

 

If I have any "tasks" in my N9 calendar the synchronization does not work. After removing the task it works again. Have you added tasks to your calendars?

 

The task was in the calnder which should have been syncronized, I guess it might have been OK to have the task in non-syncronized private calendar.

Re: N9, multiple caldav sync entries with same user name

posting this here as this is just about the top Google search hit:

 

Check the URLs suggested here:

http://forum.meego.com/showthread.php?t=3729

Quote: 

The URL for your main calendar should be: https://www.google.com/calendar/dav/ The URLs for additional calendars should be: https://www.google.com/calendar/dav/uuid@group.calendar.google.com/ In both cases the trailing slashes are important. The '@' must not be URI escaped (i.e. '%40'). The long UUID can be found on the individual calendar settings panels, and on the Google page above.
