Ok. so there is no way to make free/busy lookups then, even when the members of the list could theoretically be lookup up in LDAP.
we have to stick with LDAP-Groups then?

kind regards,

Address lists are a completely different thing.
You only can add contacts from the same addressbook to a list, in which
the list is located.
Which means, you first have to copy/add the contact from the global
addressbook to the addressbook (drag and drop), in which you want to
create or have the list.
Then you can add that contact to the list.

Hi Christian,

thank you for your answer.
The problem is that i cannot add LDAP Users to a personal List from SOGo
webfrontend (V4) it looks like there is some sort of lookup when i type
the name
but i will never show Users from LDAP only those from my personal
In Thunderbird i am able to add users from LDAP to the list i created on
the server, but when i sync the changes, the list will still only have
members that i have locally avaliable...
But LDAP-lookup in general is fine (works for login, works as
autocomplete in mails and also works for inviting in calendar, all in
webfrontend; but not in lists)

hope this makes the problem more clear

If people are in multiple addressbooks, they will show up multiple times
on autocompletion in attendees search field.

In SOGo V2 the ones not from global addressbook (=non LDAP) will show a
pink square in front of them.
Therefore you can choose the one without a pink square and are done.

In V3 there is no such marking, but you almost always get the one from
global addressbook as first entry.
If this first one still shows "no Free/busy information", you have to
remove the attendee again, and add the second entry.

Hope that is clear enough.

Kind regards,
Christian Mack

obviously the terms were wrong.
people add users to a personal list within the addressbook. and users
from this list are not being looked up in LDAP when invited to an event.
i created a list and tried to add members from LDAP but this does not
seem to be possible, at least not from sogo webfrontend.
thunderbird allows to add users from LDAP.
so my question: will members of a list in a private addressbook be
considered when doing free/busy lookups?

Dear List,

does anyone know how to get SOGo to make a free/busy lookup for
persons in a private addressbook?
Current Case: we have LDAP with all Users inside. As projectgroups are
very dynamic, people make groups
in their private addressbook and add their team-members from global
addressbook (LDAP).
When they now want to invite the group to an event they have the
problem that a free-busy lookup is not possible/available
though all members of the group are also available within LDAP.

Is there any chance to make this work or do we have to stick with
