CalDAV and CardDAV are protocols to sync calendars and contacts with a remote server. Many e-mail hosters provide a CalDAV and CardDAV interface.

CalDAV sync can be set up by using the calendar app. Open it, click on the little calendar icon in the top right corner and select “Add internet calendar > Generic CalDAV”. Enter your calendar URL as well as your username and password to complete the process.
