    Default iCal Help

    Is there some documentation somewhere that fully explains the use of iCal in Zimbra?

    I am just starting to look into it, and I can't seem to find a good explanation of its use.

    Maybe a tutorial, or a section in the docs?

    Thanks.

    Well, it depends on how you want to use it. There's 3 methods:
    1) isync
    2) ical
    3) Caldav

    Which one?

    It would probably be helpful to add clarification to the documentation. There's a fair amount of confusion due to the similarity in naming between the standard ("iCalendar") and the Apple application ("Apple iCal").

    It might help to add something like this to the Wiki (or to the formal documentation) -
    • CalDAV (Lightning, Sunbird)
      http://<server>/dav/username/Calendar
    • CalDAV (using Apple iCal 10.5)
      http(s)://<server>
    • iCalendar (Google Calendar, Apple iCal 10.4)
      http://<server>/home/<username>/Calendar
    • HTML View
      http://<server>/home/<username>/Calendar.html
    Keep in mind that the word "Calendar" in the above URLs will change based on the name of the Calendar you're using. That may not be obvious to new users, for example http://<server>/home/<username>/MyOtherCalendar.

    Another thing that isn't readily obvious (or documented, as far as I know) is that resource calendars are also accessible via CalDAV if the permissions are configured correctly within the web-based administration interface. (A resource in this case being a Location, or "room".)

    While I've yet to try it, you may be able to schedule resources by inviting one to an event using it's internal e-mail address (say, if you're using Lightning, etc).

    Also keep in mind that Apple iCal 10.5 doesn't appear to import events from subscribed internal calendars (see here and bugzilla).
