I am working on a demo of Workspace for one of our clients who is interested in an online collaboration suite that is capable of managing events and tasks. I have been working on testing the events and tasks functions, but I cannot subscribe to events in Mountain Lion Calendar, or in Outlook 2011. The links generated by events start with webcals:// instead of webcal://. The 'S' at the end I'm guessing indicates that communication will use SSL. I have a test server in place that does not force SSL to be used, so it uses webcal://, which works perfectly with Mountain Lion Calendar. How can we get this work using webcals://? Also, how do you suggest we get the events and tasks into Outlook 2011? I don't see any documentation that describes this for us, and there appears to be no place in Outlook 2011 where we can subscribe to a calendar the same we we do with Calendar in Mountain Lion, and iCal in previous versions of OS X. If you have full documentation on this, please send me a link to it. I have looked through Kerio forums and the knowledge base for information on this. It's a Sunday, so maybe I'm being too lazy to look hard enough Laughing I just wanted to get a good demo working before my meeting tomorrow.

I think Workspace is a great product with a lot of potential. There are a couple of sticking points though, like the one noted above.

Hello.
If you access Workspace through https:// (apart from http) then all links to events and tasks start with webcals:// (apart from webcal). But we identified a problem with OS X Calendar, as you mentioned, so that in the next release of Workspace there will be only webcal:// links. In case your Workspace is configured to redirect requests to https your calendar application will be also redirected.

Thanks for the reply. If we end up deploying Workspace for this customer, it may not happen until after the next version release. We're beta testers, so are you referring to the beta version that is currently available for download? If so, I will do more testing on that one. I have it installed on a test server, but I don't have it setup to force redirect to SSL. What about Outlook 2011? I can't find a way to subscribe to events in Outlook 2011. Personally, I don't like Outlook 2011, but many of my clients prefer to use it.

Dear Howie,

Outlook 2011 is (yet?) not able to subscribe to so called iCalendar feeds. The only workaround at the moment is, to setup syncservices in Outlook which then syncs to iCal

That's unforunate. Hopefully, Kerio can find another way of synching for Outlook 2011. I'm going to try this idea, but it may not always be possible for every customer. I've been trying to coax a lot of customers away from Outlook 2011.

I just tried using the synching service between Outlook 2011 and Calendar in Mountain Lion. It does not synch in the subscribed calendar from Workspace. Any other suggestions?
