General instructions for setting up clients for CalDAV Calendar Clients. CalDAV Calendar can be used with more and more calendar clients to share calendars. These are generic instructions for setting up clients.

Setting Up Other CalDAV Clients

Clients typically need three pieces of information to setup CalDAV Accounts:

  1. Server/Location
  2. Username
  3. Password

The Server/Location address depends on the client. There are three potential URLs:

  1. Base URL -
  2. Principal URL -<your-username>
  3. Calendar URL -<your-username>
  4. Direct URL -<your-username>/calendar:<a-very-long-id-number>

Apple iOS, Apple macOS require #1. Others may require #2 or #3. Some applications such as Thunderbird (with Lightning) require #4. Use this very long URL direct to the calendar directory in cases where the client cannot retrieve the list of calendars from the CalDAV server.
