Setting up Shared Contacts on a WindowsDevice (CalDAV)

By setting up a shared contacts on cPanel, you can control and organise shared specific dates on as many device contacts as you require. This on cPanel is known a CardDav.

Before carrying out this setup, if you have not previously done already, we recommend you setup a new email account specifically for the contacts. This means you do not have to share your cPanel password with anyone else. If you are not aware of how to setup an email account, you can learn how to using our helpful guide on creating an email account. For this example we created an account called contacts@nwdemo.co.uk.

Step 1. Login to cPanel and open Calendars and Contacts.

You can do this by searching ‘Calendar’ in the top search bar on cPanel and selecting the ‘ Calendars and Contacts’ option.

Fill in these details accordingly, being sure to use the email account you made earlier entirely for the control of contacts. Use the matching password also. Use the server addresses we also found earlier in the cPanel.
