[Davical-general] Email notification upon invite in DAViCal is 1.1.3.1

richard
Hi,

I am new to DAViCal and just subscribed to this mailing list hopping to get possible help.

Would option $c->enable_auto_schedule set to true (as it is by default) in current stable version of DAViCal 1.1.3.1 allow users to be notified by email by Davical when they are invited to an event by another Davical users so they can approves or rejects it?

Would email notification require additional settings in Davical conf (e.g email server)?

From my understanding:
- setting it to false should force client to handle invitation but we would like ideally the server to handle it instead and notify users by email, would it be possible?
- Davical shall be able to do so for internal users but not external once,is that correct? Is this limit still in place in DAViCal 1.1.3.1? Would external users still be notified by email even though they may not be able to reject/approve event directly from notification?

Internal users being those registered on my Davical system (within the same domain), external users being those that are not (Calendar service provided by other suppliers).

On a separate note, I was wondering where is the best place to find a list of all the possible configuration options of Davical with description/accepted&default values?

I found this http://davical.dhits.nl/index.php/Configuration_settings but that does not seems to be an exhaustive list (e.g enable_auto_schedule not listed).

I also found this http://davical.dhits.nl/index.php/Configuration/settings but it seems empty with only the mention "<ListSubPages/>" on it.

Thank you in advance for your support.

Richard.

Re: Email notification upon invite in DAViCal is 1.1.3.1

Hi Richard,

I have the same problems/question in my current davical (highly patched 1.1.1).
I will test davical 1.1.3.1 in February (I hope) and I'm already really excited
about the points you mentioned.

So far, in 1.1.1, I handle the "$c->enable_auto_schedule = true" issue with that patch:

   }
   else {
     $dav = '1, 2, 3, access-control, calendar-access, calendar-schedule, extended-mkcol, bind, addressbook';
-    if ( $c->enable_auto_schedule ) $dav .= ', calendar-auto-schedule';
+//    if ( $c->enable_auto_schedule ) $dav .= ', calendar-auto-schedule';
     if ( !isset($c->disable_caldav_proxy) || $c->disable_caldav_proxy == false) $dav .= ', calendar-proxy';
   }
   $dav = explode( "\n", wordwrap( $dav ) );
------------------------------------------
Davical tells the client, that it does no auto_schedule, but afterwards it does.
So clients are sending invitations via mail.
But as you tell, this generates a lot of other problems with invited users, which are externally invited via mail,
and which are not in the davical DB.

I have two other patches for:
- delete events with external attendees was not possible
- accept events with external attendees was not possible

But the patches are not so nice. I also asking myself, what is
the prober way for dealing with external users.

Is there a solution in Davical 1.1.3.1?
If anybody likes, I can post the other two paches.

Regards,

Sebastian

Re: Email notification upon invite in DAViCal is 1.1.3.1

Hi Andrew,

Any chance you may be able to provide feedback directly on the two questions below?

On Mon, Jan 26, 2015 at 2:19 PM, Richard LEGER <[hidden email]> wrote:

Q1:
 
Would option $c->enable_auto_schedule set to true (as it is by default) in current stable version of DAViCal 1.1.3.1 allow users to be notified by email by Davical when they are invited to an event by another Davical users so they can approves or rejects it?

Q2:
 
Would email notification require additional settings in Davical conf (e.g email server)?

Looking at the source code, in Davical > config > debug-config.php file I found the following section, which seems to confirm that Davical can send email, am I right to think so?

"...
/**
* if this is set then any e-mail that would normally be sent by DAViCal will be
* sent to this e-mail address for debugging.
*/
//$c->debug_email
"...

I just still don't understand how it does it (no apparent settings in config file), and how to set it up so notification will be sent by email (by Davical) to internal attendee when invited to an event.

As iCal does not take into consideration the $c->enable_auto_schedule = false option, having Davical sent notification by email upon invite would remain the only option.

I suspect it may just be a matter of setting up smtp settings somewhere/somehow to allow Davical to send email.

I also found there are some setting in example-config.php for a Push Notification Server (Jabber) but I guess that is for something completely different.

Thank you for your support.
Regards,
