could be useful, to have the possibility to sync Notes, Task and Calendars from Ubuntu One with clients like Android's or OpenMoko Freerunner's phone devices

Calendar sync would be valuable for me.

Can I be independent from google with Ubuntu one? :)
One vote more to Calendar in Ubunto One.

One more vote for calendar !

+1 from me too. It would be grate to have calendar synchronization through ubuntu one.

Dominic Hosler (dominichosler) wrote :

A temporary workaround is to create a new local calendar and just save the .ics file in the Ubuntu One folder (by ticking customise options and setting the file path). Then on your other computers, once Ubuntu One has synchronised the calendar file, you create a new local calendar and point to the existing .ics file.

However, I would like calendar synchronization to be fully integrated.

Contacts isn't so much of a priority for me, but if U1 had calendar syncing support through syncML, I would pay the $10 monthly fee without hesitation. Syncing through files works between my desktops, but not to my phone which is a real bummer.

I would as well pay for this feature. I dont wanna use google calendar, so this would be wonderful.
Please consider it.

Jay Cassano (cassano-jay) wrote :

Is the plan for U1 to just add built-in calendar syncing or would it be a full webapp that lets me view my calendar in any browser anywhere, similar to Google Calendar? If the plan is for it be a webapp that would be incredible. Would be nice to not use Google Calendar for syncing.

Yep a calendar sync would be much appreciated ...

Another vote for this feature. I currently use Google Calendar because I can access it on my Droid but the interface sucks badly. Calendar is currently the only thing holding me back from paying the monthly fee.

Would love to see this feature. There is no calendar sync which works perfectly with Nokia devices. Ubuntu one is perfect for bookmark and contact sync for all my devices.


Providing a complete, well-integrated sync solution is cleary a major competitive advantage for ubuntu.

I would love to pay the 2.99 (or even a little more) if the sync solution would work with calendar and contacts for my n900 as good as the tomboy-sync

I second all of these comments, I would shell out at least $15/m to be Google-free, that is web-accessible email, calendar, contacts, bookmarks.

Is there any vote for this feature?
Could you post a link to vote for it?

I second all of these comments, too.

Joshua Hoover (joshuahoover) wrote :

You can start a brainstorm idea here (make sure you tag the idea with "ubuntuone"):

You'll need to try to gather support for the idea by promoting the link and asking people to vote it up. We don't currently have plans to add calendar sync right now but that could change.

calendar sync with ubuntuone would be great...could use every calendar format so it could sync with evolution, outlook, thunderbird and others...

Not only Calendar even so whole pim-data like Contacts, Calendars, Tasks and Notes for the beginning. I'm shure the independece (without third services, see post #5) is importend for this kind of data.

Thanks, all Maintainer and Developer for the effort

I also vote for a sync of adress book and calendar with TB, as it's now default e-mail client for ubuntu

I use ubuntu one free. I have thought about upgrading to take advantage of the music feature, but I wouldn't use it enough to justify the monthly fee, but I would pay for calendar syncing.
