CalDAV is an internet standard that allows applications such as Apple iCal and Apple Calendar to manage calendar information on a remote server (Kerio Connect).
This article explains how macOS users can use and view the shared/resource calendars using the CalDAV protocol by covering the following topics:
- Calendar Permissions
- Adding a Shared Calendar
- Viewing Permissions for Resources
- Additional Information About Attachments

To see a shared or resource calendar, you need to have appropriate permissions (Reader, Editor, or Owner). For a shared calendar, the user sharing the calendar configures the permissions in Webmail, as seen in the screenshot below.
Adding a Shared Calendar
Follow these steps to add a shared calendar:
- Download Kerio Account Assistant for Mac and follow the prompts for adding your profile.
- Once the profile is added, open the Calendar app.
- Click on the download icon, as seen in the screenshot below.
- Click on the Join Calendar button.
- Confirmation: You will see the selected shared calendar appear beneath your personal calendar, as seen in the screenshot below.
Viewing Permissions for Resources
A resource is a location, place, or room that can be booked (in a calendar) by users. Follow these steps to view who has permission to schedule a resource:
- Log into the Kerio Connect admin console.
- Click on the user icon in the navigation menu.
- Go to Resources.
- Click on a resource. The screenshot below shows clicking a resource named 'Test'.
- Go to the Permissions tab to view who has permission to book this resource.
- Confirmation: If you have permission to schedule the 'Test' resource, its name appears when you create an event in the Calendar app.
Additional Information About Attachments
The Kerio Connect CalDAV implementation does not support adding an attachment or setting visibility in the macOS Calendar app. This feature is only supported in an iCloud account, as seen in the following test screenshots.
