Synchronize Address BooksPermanent link for this heading

Access to contacts is also possible via third-party products such as “Apple Contacts”, which support the CardDAV standard. To do this, store the desired contact rooms or address lists in your address book list (“account menu (your user name)” > “Advanced Settings” > “Address Book”). Here you will also find the CardDAV URL.

In Apple Contacts you can store the CardDAV URL, your cloud login e-mail address and the password for applications (valid for “Address Book (CardDAV)”). You can change the contacts in both Apple Contacts and the Fabasoft Cloud. The changes will be synchronized.
