Please note:

 

While Spike supports CalDav, we rely on features that not all email providers have. If your email provider supports CalDav, the calendar should work.

The IMAP protocol itself is not related to calendar or contacts but we do sync contacts and calendars for accounts who support it.

In some cases, there may still be issues, in which case please contact chat@spikenow.com and we’ll be able to help.

* CalDAV (Calendar Distributed Authoring and Versioning) is a network protocol that allows calendar files to be accessed and synchronized.
Some provider supports CalDAV (Calendar Distributed Authoring and Versioning), but Spike relies on features that not all providers have. If your provider supports CalDAV, the calendar should work but it is not always consistent. If it doesn’t work, please contact chat@spikenow.com.

 

Your Spike desktop app/ web browser, Spike will sync to the calendars that are already connected to your email account.

 

For example: If you’re using a Gmail account on Spike’s desktop app and want your iOS calendar to appear on Spike, you need to first connect your iOS calendar to your Google calendar (you can read more about adding your iCal to Google Calendar).

Spike will pull the information from the calendar(s) that are synced to the email accounts you connected.

 

Spike Calendar on your desktop app works with Gmail, iCloud, Exchange and Office 365.
Please note, that IMAP accounts will only sync emails and folders, but not calendar(s) and contacts.
