CardDAV

Postby Knorhaan » Thu Sep 07, 2017 12:25 pm

First to admin: there is nog forum for CardDAV under "Synology Applications>Official Synology Packages". I think it should be there and that's where this posting belongs.

When I have my Android connected with the CardDAV server (with an additional app) as instructed by the Synology website (https://www.synology.com/en-global/knowledgebase/DSM/help/CardDAVServer/carddav_server_desc) it automatically creates two accounts. One as on the website with /addressbooks/users/USERNAME/addressbook/ and one with a large string in it /addressbooks/__uids__/LONGRANDOMSTRIN/addressbook/

1. Ok, fine by me, it works but for Android it are two separate accounts. So when I want to add a contact it asks me in which account it needs to be saved. Well, I have no idea and I think it doesn't matter but that's my first questions here: Which one should I choose as standard account?

2. Both accounts have the same name but with a different suffix. One has "2w" added and another has "bg" added to it's name. What does this mean?

3. Is it possible to make contact groups as I did before with my gmail account?

Greetings.

I would like to chime as well. while attempting to sync my Android device with the Card dav server, I have 2 options as well. In addition, I have imported over 600 contacts in my address book through the web interface on my Synology. However when I start the syncing process, it will only complete 250-260 of the entries and does not sync any further. I have tried to restart, remove the entry and re-add it, nothing is working.

Any help on this?
