Calendaring introduction

Anyone can read calendars shared publicly at Homebase.

Your personal account grants read-only access to closed-group shared calendars.

Custom group accounts provide write access to (closed-group or public) shared calendars.

Clients

Recommended calendaring client depends on the operating system you use:

Security

Before you setup any password-protected calendars, make sure to install the CACert.org security certificate.

Read-only access

When you only need to read a calendar, the best (most efficient) is to subscribe to an iCal calender:

  1. Copy address of relevant calendar from web page http://event.homebase.dk/.
  2. Open calendaring client, and add new account profile of type "ical".
  3. Paste the calendar address as server address.

Closed-group calendars also require username and password, and require a secure connection (TLS or SSL, or "https://" address).

Read-write access

To both read a calendar and help maintain its content, you need to setup a CalDAV profile:

  1. Open calendaring client, and add new account profile of type "CalDAV".
  2. Server address: event.homebase.dk:8443
  3. Username and password: Either personal or calendar-group account credentials.

If above fails, or if you want to specifically pick a single calender, use this alternative approach:

  1. Copy address of relevant calendar from web page https://event.homebase.dk:8443/calendars/users/USERNAME/
    (replace USERNAME with either personal or calendar-group account name)
  2. Open calendaring client, and add new account profile of type "CalDAV".
  3. Paste the calendar address as server address.
