Configuration of Mozilla Thunderbird and LightningPermanent link for this heading

Mozilla Thunderbird and Mozilla Lightning can be downloaded from the website http://www.mozilla.org. Mozilla Lightning is a plug-in for Mozilla Thunderbird, which offers calendar functionality. Alternatively Mozilla Sunbird can be used as a standalone calendar client.

After the installation of Mozilla Lightning or Mozilla Sunbird perform the following steps to add a calendar, which is stored in the Fabasoft Folio Domain:

  1. Add a new calendar (“File” > “New” > “Calendar”).
  2. Select On the Network.
  3. Select CalDAV and specify the Location.

    The location parameter can be specified using the following pattern:
    <Fabasoft Folio Web Service URL>/caldav/<Calendar Object Address>
    (e.g. https://folio.fabasoft.com/folio/caldav/COO.1.1530.1.1012266)
    • Fabasoft Web Service URL
      Specifies the URL to the Fabasoft Folio Web Service.
    • Calendar Object Address
      This parameter can be specified to access a specific calendar from the user’s calendar list. The keyword "home" is reserved for the user’s default calendar.
  4. Specify the display name and select a color.

    Note: The display name, the selected color and Show Alarms are client settings and therefore only stored on the client.
  5. Click “Finish” to finish the configuration.

    Note: If the specified calendar does not exist, it will be created automatically.
