I would like to sync my TB calendar to my Yahoo mail account that has a calendar, which is sync'ed to my phone.
The phone is my primary for new events, but it would be great to do it from my PC as well.
I can do it on the PC via the Yahoo mail app, but it is a bit tedious.

I can't seem to find how to do it. Is it even possible?

Moving to Calendar forum where those most knowledgeable regarding that functionality will be more likely to see it.

According to https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN4704.html yahoo mail supports CalDAV. It looks like you need to use a https://caldav.calendar.yahoo.com URL when you configure the Thunderbird Calendar to use CalDAV with Yahoo. That will let you sync the local and remote calendars.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cr ... -calendars assumes you are creating a new calendar, but you should be able to adapt the instruction for an existing calendar.

Thanks. I created a calendar but it show none of my Yahoo cal events.
I switched to manual refresh but how do I refresh? Can't see an icon to click on.

I just noticed my Yahoo calendar has not synced with my phone, which is my primary input.
Any thoughts on this?

Ask Yahoo, or take the phone to the place you bought it and ask them.
Linux Desktop - AMD Athlon(tm) II X3 455 3.3GHz | 8.0GB RAM | GeForce GT 630
Windows Notebook - AMD A8 7410 2.2GHz | 6.0GB RAM | AMD Radeon R5

Return to Calendar
