Offline calendar support

Tibor Attila Anca
Hello,

I am using Evolution since several years and am in fact quite happy with
it. But there is a feature I really miss. It appears that Evolution
doesn't have a support for offline calendaring. How could I initiate a
feature request? In many cases this a show stopper and I often tried to
abandon Evolution and pick up Thunderbird/ Korganizer, but they have got
their own weaknesses, so I stayed with Evolution.

Thankful for any hint!

Regards
Tibor

You don't say what version of Evolution you have. See Help->About.

Requests For Enhancement (RFEs) should go to the Evolution Bugzilla
page. Please post a link to your BZ report here so other list members
can comment.

What sort of support?

TBH I think it depends on the type of calendar you are using (which you
don't say, nor do you say which version of Evo).  My CalDAV/Web/Google
calendars have a tick box saying "Copy Calendar contents locally for
offline operation", but my EWS calendars don't. (This is Evo 3.24.6 on
Fedora 26.)

But I don't use the feature, so I don't know if it syncs any changes
once things come back online or if it is just read-only while offline.

I mean: a functionality that includes adding events and tasks while
offline and once I get online they will be synchronized.

So, we use the same version. Sorry for not mentioning the version of
Evolution, but I experienced the lack of this feature disregarded the
version or linux distro. I also can chose to copy the content for
offline operations, only: you cannot execute offline operations, neither
with google calendars, nor with caldav ones (I use the german posteo as
a provider). I can create new items, but am not able to save them. So
what is the use of ticking the choice for offline operations?

So, I will go over Bugzilla.

Tibor

Thanks, but for future reference note that it's best to quote URLs
using Preformatted mode to avoid them being split by line breaks.

        Hi,
offline support of add/edit/delete had been added into the recent
stable version, which is for 3.26.0 only. That was a pretty huge
change [1], thus do not expect it in any previous version. I'll
close your bug accordingly.
        Thanks and bye,
        Milan

I was going to comment that the OP shouldn't expect anything too soon
because it is a much more complicated thing than it first appears. But,
well, 47k lines over 128 files! Our collective thanks to you Milan.
