Feature Proposition: Reorder/Organize Calendars

  • Hi all,

    not sure if this forum is to be used as well to post feature propositions.

    Been checking out DeskApp as an alternative to Outlook/KOE and maybe I just missed how to do it, but shared Calendars I have imported seem to appear in order of import. And are not reorderable. And I didn’t find a way to create “Folders” to organize the
    different Calendars.

    Not having this will be a really hard sale to our users…

    kind regards

    Hi Remo,

    I found the related ticket for this feature request: https://jira.kopano.io/browse/KW-1119

  • thank you kindly. I upvoted your jira report.

    But I would like to point out that me writing Deskapp was not a typo at all. I really meant Deskapp.

    So that Jira entry might not be applicable and your move of my post from deskapp subforum to webapp subforum not the correct action?

    Hi Remo,

    The fix will be made in the WebApp project, that’s why it’s a KW ticket :)

  • But I requested that feature in the DESKAPP!

    How is it getting fixed in the webapp the answer to my post???

    I am seriously confused by this exchange here…

    Hi Remo,

    With DeskApp you connect to a server running WebApp. During profile creation you have to enter your “WebApp address”.
    Please read https://kopano.com/products/deskapp/ perhaps this clarifies it even more.

    So, when this issue will be fixed in WebApp it will also be fixed in DeskApp.

  • So, when this issue will be fixed in WebApp it will also be fixed in DeskApp.

    So when the webapp has this feature of reorganizing my left side Calendar Entries so I can move them up or down in the list as proposed by the Jira request. Or Group them as requested by me.

    That feature will appear in the Deskapp without any changes to the Deskapp Application itself? It seems to me it would need either drag Calendar Entries in the left side functionality. or new right click on Calendar entries in the left tab menu options.

    And that GUI interaction functionality the Deskapp will download via the WebApp Address I enter in the config?

    I am impressed. That is some serious dark wizardry :-)

  • Hi,

    we’re using WebApp: and Kopano Core: 8.7.1 and still have this issue. According to the Jira-Ticket there was not much action since the problem was reported in May 2017. We can change the order with the arrows on the tab, but after some reorganization of the tabs it suddenly orders some other calendars in a apparently random order.

    So we do not just have a lack of feature because the sorting of the calendars on the left (move up, move down) is not possible, but also a bug that the order of some calendars is randomly switched after a totally independent (not adjacent) calendar was moved. We observed this behaviour when we reorder more than 4 calendars.

    Please let me know if you need more information on this and how I can provide this information.

    kind regards

    Would be helpful if you could provide reproducible cases for these issues.

  • I know that a reproducable scenario always helps to isolate a problem. Unfortunately it’s not easy to describe what steps are needed to mix the order of the calendars.

    • open 5+ calendars in side by side modus
    • try to move the most right calendar with the small arrows on the tab to the most left position
    • when the calendar is the second from the left side, the arrow left to the calendar on the tab isn’t available anymore
    • click on the small right arrow on the tab of the most left calendar to move it one more position to the right
    • instead of moving first calendar from the left side to the second position, the previously moved calendar to the 2nd position is back on the most right position


  • Kopano

    @msauer The arrows are not used for setting an order but to combine/detach calendars.

    We’re hoping to tackle the order in KW-1119

  • Ok, Thank you for the information.
