On 16.04 when adding using "add web calendar" and copying the url it directly prompts for username/password

I have a similar problem with Ubuntu 17.10. After pasting my ICS URL (from Zimbra), the Add button stays grayed out. If I use the read-only URL (offered by Zimbra, with an .html at the end) it adds the calendar but no event is shown. And when clinking at the calendar it opens it at my browser. Besides this it keeps crashing without warning in some random situations.

still not possible in ubuntu 18.04 with calendar 3.28.2. I also tried a posteo calendar.

Still can't add a caldav calendar.
Wonder why the importance is low, given that it makes the appliation unusable for many of us.
