What Can I Do With Calendar Sharing?
Share your Daylite Appointments as well as Tasks with Apple's Calendar and Reminders app to add appointments and Tasks with Siri.
Sharing your Daylite Calendar creates a new Calendar list in your apps. It will not sync with other contact services like iCloud or Google Calendar.
All CalDAV installations are user/device-specific, so setting DAV up in Daylite for one user, will not show up on anyone else's devices. Please set up calendar sharing on all Macs, iPhones and iPads individually.
Calendars On The iPhone & iPad
Follow these steps on each iPhone & iPad that you want to share your Daylite appointments and tasks to.
Install a Calendar Profile
- Open the Daylite App on your iPhone or iPad
- Within Daylite, tap Home.
- On the Daylite Home Screen scroll to the bottom and tap Settings > Calendar
- Tap Show Daylite Calendar in other apps
- Tap Install Daylite Calendar Profile
- You will be brought to the Safari browser to confirm. Tap Allow
- Tap Close on the 'Profile Downloaded' message
- Go to your device's Settings app and tap on Profile Downloaded
- Review the profile and tap Install
- Enter your passcode and then complete the profile installation
Make Daylite Your Default Calendar
- Open Settings
- Choose Calendar
- Tap Default Calendar
- Select your Daylite Account
Success! Your Daylite Appointments will appear in the Calendar app, while Tasks will be synced to the Reminders app on your iPhone and iPad!
If you are unable to choose Daylite as your default Calendar and only see Category-specific Calendars, then you will need to change your Daylite Preferences. From Daylite’s Menu Bar > Daylite > Preferences > Calendar Integration > Daylite Calendar in Other Apps, here you will need to change the Show Appointment as: One Calendar. You can then proceed with the steps to make your Daylite Calendar your default Calendar in your device.

Success! Your Daylite Calendar will now appear in Apple Calendar on your Mac as a separate Daylite Calendar Group, while Tasks will be synced to the Reminders app.
Each time you create contact/calendar sharing, a new user/password is created. This password can be found by logging into your Account Manager's page. Under the My Info tab, you'll find a Contact and Calendar sharing section. If you get a notification from the Internet Accounts on your Mac to enter the password for a username that will look something like "7dla1a2n", for example, please use this password generated in Contact and Calendar sharing to connect your account.
Cloud Sharing: Other Applications
Any application which supports CalDAV should be able to access appointments from Daylite with the correct server settings for your Cloud account. As each application has its own server setting format, review the application's documentation for specific steps.
When sharing your calendar, all appointments will be visible.
- Log into your Account Manager page.
- Choose "My Info" and scroll down to "Calendar and Contact Sharing"
- Click "New +"
- Add the name of the application or person you are sharing your appointments with then click Generate
Now you can use the username, password and server address generated to share your Calendar. If a port setting is required, use port 443.
Success! Your Daylite calendar will now appear in the program you have decided to share with!
Account Admins have the ability to block a User from utilizing DAV and sharing their data with other Applications. If you are experiencing issues with sharing your Calendar, this could be a possibility. Have your Account Admin check this feature by going to Daylite's Menu Bar > Daylite > Preferences > Users & Teams > Users > Your Name and clicking on the Advanced button. A Window will pop up and they will need to check off "Share and sync data with Other Applications, “ for DAV to work for you.
