If you have a laptop at home, a desktop at work, and have a mobile device like a smartphone or a tablet then it can be hard work keeping all of your calendars and contacts up to date.
A quick search on the web will reveal a lot of different CalDAV and CardDAV personal information managers to choose from. The following is a guide to the process of using an Address Book in the cross platform Thunderbird email client. Back in Thunderbird, synchronize with the remote address book by right clicking select Synchronize. There are several apps available to sync your Android device contacts with those on a CardDAV compatible service like ownCloud.
Enter your user details and the URL of the CardDAV address book that you want to connect to.
If you are entering a normal URL you can find it in the settings of your ownCloud Contact Settings.
You may want to choose a more mature system like the Thunderbird email client to be the interface where you manage your contacts.


Android does not support CalDAV by default, so we need to install an app to allow our devices to do this.
For those not familiar with ownCloud, this is a tool that you can install on your server (there are also desktop and mobile sync clients) which comes with a web interface that provides access to file management, calendars, tasks, image gallery, music player, document viewer and more.
They are open standards and are used by many applications to send and receive information to keep everything synchronized. We will cover the popular email client Thunderbird as it is cross platform and works with both CalDAV and CardDAV.
These plugins will give you the ability to add a remote calendar and address book to Thunderbird. A similar approach should work for other CardDAV enabled applications.Install Thunderbird and Sogo Connector plugin as detailed in the section above. Similarly, adding or editing your contacts in Thunderbird will trigger a sync with the ownCloud server. Moving a contact from from a remote 'OwnCloud address book' to a local address book removes the contact from the OwnCloud server, (thus deleting it from all the other synchronized installations).


If you have added, or have other address books shared with you they should also appear in your list to choose from. If you un-tick this then changes that you make on your devices will by synced back up to the server. This area is still quite experimental and changes are being made to make it more user-friendly. Changes you make there will be updated to your server and to any android clients that you have synced. See the chapter on security for the reasons why using SSL increases the security of ownCloud.
