  1. add shared calendar alerts

    Whenever somebody makes a change to a shared calendar, the other subscribers/the owner of the calendar should be informed via a "shared calendar alert". Apple offers this very valuable feature on iCloud for both Mac OS X and iOS.

    We’re interested in supporting this and in fact we already support some bits and pieces of this notification functionality (e.g. when someone invites you into a calendar), but unfortunately this is not a standard yet (it’s an Apple extension: https://github.com/fruux/sabre-dav/blob/master/docs/caldav-notifications.txt).

    These change-notifications don’t seem to be supported for third parties at the moment.

    We’ll keep an eye on this as Apple releases newer versions of its operating systems (iOS7/OS X Mavericks).

  2. SMS notifications for calendar events

    It'd be nice if SMS were sent for upcoming calendar events (similar to the email notification idea already posted here).

  3. Synchronize with Outlook.com (formerly Hotmail)

    I would be awesome to be able to synchronize my fruux contacts and calendar entries with Outlook.com (formerly Hotmail.com).

  4. Support for WebDAV / OmniPresence

    OmniGroup has just published their new service OmniPresence which just syncs files via WebDAV. Would be great if I could not only sync contacts and calendars, but also the files of my OmniGroup apps via fruux.

  5. Add a version history feature to Calendar and Adressbook data

    Idea for Paid Premium Pro Service:

    Add a version history feature to Calendar and Adressbook data.

    For me it is very important to preserve my Data. I live currently always in the danger to accidentally delete some of my data because of my own fault or by a software or synchronization error. If I sync my calendar across several devices using your or a similar service and delete 1 entry at the first device it gets automatically deleted at the second and vice versa.
    The same goes to loosing partial data. If I edit a text field and the client…

    We already do versioned backups under the hood (think of it as Time Machine or git for contacts/calendars/tasks). A web frontend to also make this functionality available to our users is planned. Unfortunately no ETA yet.

  6. Improve Thunderbird integration using automatic addressbook data sync

    The Sogo Connector add-on by Inverse works OK if I add contact info via Thunderbird locally. But, if I step out for lunch and add a contact using my phone, after lunch to refresh the email addressbook data in Thunderbird it is necessary to shut down the app and relaunch it. Perhaps fruux could work with Inverse to make this data update happen automatically. Or, if not, at least have them put a button in the Thunderbird Add-on Manager so addressbook data can be resynced manually.

  7. login with google/facebook/linkedIn Account

    One of the thing that prevent me and my family using the service is the fact that they need to create an account. Some people (who says the old ones ! :) ) tends to refuse creating account everywhere. It gives them the impression of security breach and it becomes difficult to remember every passwords.

    So if they could sign in with their already existing facebook account or anything else it would be easier.

    By the way I just saw that here on the forum we can log with facebook ang google whereas I did not see it on the…

  8. support for attachments

    We want to move from our own hosted calendar/reminders/contacts server (OSX10.8 server) to your system. It seems you have decided to remove a fundamental feature that we use seldom, but is important: attach a file to an event.
    Example a hotel reservation: wherever a link does not do it, we attach a pdf to the event so that we can see it on phone or laptop when traveling.

    We haven’t removed this feature. It’s just not added yet. CalDAV consists of dozens of extensions. So called “managed attachments” are one of them.

    As of now it’s not a standard yet – it’s just a work in progress draft that Apple already implemented.

    We plan to add support for managed attachments, too. But because we are dedicated to open standards we have to do it properly and not only hack it in there to support just one vendor. So this will take some time for the feature to evolve to a solid standard. We definitely have an eye on it.

  9. Custom templates for invitations

    I'd like more control over my company's brand when sending out calendar invitations. As such I would love to have the ability to customize the event invitation template used by everyone in my team.

  11. notification setup:

    Notification preferences: you really should have a checkbox to serve/not serve email notifications for each calendar or addressbook.
    It should be *just* that, very simple.

  12. Tags in tasks

    You may want to associate it with multiple things. RTM has this and I believe it is in the iCal spec.

    fruux is based on open standards. We’re supporting CardDAV for contact and CalDAV for calendar and tasks synchronization.

    Unfortunately no widely supported open standard for “notes” yet. Once there is one, we’d be interested in implementing it.

    Another possibility would be to take a look at the VJOURNAL standard (which is not widely supported either though).

  14. german localization

    We plan to localize the webapp in the future, but thats still a bit further down the road, because we think that the development of the core features should come before localization.

    And: Once you have fruux setup on your machine, you’ll have your localized apps as usual anyway.

  15. Sync with Windows Contacts

    Is this possible already? I'd like the option to sync with Win directly instead of Using Office to do so, just like with the Adress Book on OS X.

    We’d love to support that, but right now Microsoft neither has support for the CardDAV protocol, nor exposes third party APIs to implement a plugin that could provide that functionality. :-(

    Once that situation changes, we’ll definitely be super interested in supporting it.

  17. The Dummies tour

    Hi, I am one of those dummies.
    I do not really understand what I can do and how I can do it.

    It would be wonderful if there was a video tour showing me what kind of things I can accomplish with fruux and how .

    This may save many help requesting emails about silly things.

    Thanks

    Right now, fruux is maybe a bit in the “Made by nerds and for nerds” stage. Now that we’ve brought fruux (development-wise) to a state where everything is coming together and as stable as we want it to be, we want to make everything easier and better documented starting next year.

    Thanks for your input!
    In the meantime: Don’t hesitate to send us your questions! There are only stupid answers. :)

    There are not many phones out there that are stuck with iOS3 and iOS4 works great with fruux.

    However we’ve still some interest in LDAP – as a way to support more devices/platforms -, but thats (unfortunately) definitely not something we have manpower for at the moment.

    We’d love to support Safari bookmarks – unfortunately there is no open standard (yet) to make it happen. Ones there is a way to do it, we’d probably be very interested to make it happen.

  20. Windows Phone 7 Support

    Add the ability to sync data with Windows Phone 7.
