Set up calendar on other devices

There is the possibility to implement a CalDav calendar from the mailserver on your devices. That way you don't need to use Horde, but rather the calendar is directly displayed on your smartphone.

Required data:

CalDAV-Server webmail.fa.uni-tuebingen.de
Username Username (ohne @math.uni-tuebingen.de)
Secure login/TLS usage? Yes
Port 443
Account-URL https://webmail.fa.uni-tuebingen.de/rpc.php/principals/[USERNAME]/


(siehe Hinweis unten)

Path (for MacOS) /rpc.php/principals/[USERNAME]/

To get a certain calendar bound on an external device or shared with a colleague, please follow the steps below:

  1. Log in to Horde
  2. Go to the Calendar-Tab.
  3. Click on the pencil icon, next to the calendar you want to share.
  4. Now you have two possibilities to share the calendar: under "Sharing" you can add internal users in the field "Share with the users:"; remember to set the wished rights ("read..." or "read and edit...").
  5. If you want to share the calendar with external users or use it on a Mail- and calendar client, the go to "Subscription". There you can choose between the formats CalDAV and WebDAV/ICS and add the corresponding subscription address to your device.
  6. Adding an address to an external software varies depending on the software used.
