This is great and should replace the address book that is built into Thunderbird.

Comme toujours, on se demande pourquoi les extensions de ce genre ne sont pas intégrées par défaut ! Tout simplement indispensable, mais incompatible avec les version après la 60.

I exported a vCard file from my Google Pixel 3 standard "Contacts" app (Android 9, Pie) and attempted to import them locally to a new address book... Absolutely nothing happens (no contacts import, no error messages). Tried switching settings from vCard 4.0 to 3.0, same thing.

The exported vCard file imports into the standard Thunderbird address book with no issues. Is this add-on compatible with the Android Pie Contacts app?

Thanks in advance for any advice. Looks like a nice add-on, if I could get my contacts imported!

-------

UPDATE: Guess not. The problem appears to be on the Google Android end. Found the CardBook log viewer, and every contact is flagged as not being in 3.0 or 4.0 format. Opened the exported vCard file with Notepad, and the second record is: "VERSION:2.1". I can't find anything in the app settings to change the output format. Weird that it's v2.1, on the latest version of Android.

-------

ONE MORE UPDATE: There is a free app in the Google Play Store called "ContactsManager", which exports your contacts in 3.0 format, but it does not export pictures (for one thing). A better free app is "Easy Backup - Contacts Export and Restore". While the latter still exports in 3.0 format, it does include picture data in its output vCard file.

Exporting using either of these apps, CardBook was able to import them with no issues. Lots of function within this add-on, great job!

Amazing tech support and great add-on. I am back on Thunderbird. I tried Windows Mail. What a pain.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Very good but I cant do this. Please help me. I cant use it without this function. I tried to set up but not working for me. Thank you.

I cant find this:
in CardBook preferences, email tab, you may collect the outgoing email addresses into CardBook

in CardBook preferences, email tab, you may collect the outgoing email addresses into CardBook (the email collection into Thunderbird standard address books will also still happen)... then in CardBook preferences, general tab, you may check the option "CardBook as unique source for contacts"

A very good add-on wich made me moving to Thunderbird. One thing I miss is an easy way to insert new addresses. You cannot insert them at once, the way you get them written in emails from clients. But it has to be done, first name, second name, street, place, postcode, ....., everyting one by one. That is time consuming. How to find a way to insert the address at once?

Extremely helpful add-on to manage contacts and to sync them via carddav. My critics is with the date format. As end user it's completely irrelevant for me in which format dates are saved internally. But to display and edit dates I want to have a format, which corresponds to the locale/region, like "DD.MM.YYYY". The required format "YYYYMMDD" to enter birthdates is suboptimal - kindly expresed.

Dear developer,
I love your AddOn it covers so much of missing development on Thunderbird!
But I think a found a serious BUG. When I drag and drop a category on the left side just under the dynamic address book search "all contacts" to another position within "all contacts" the category gets deleted together with the whole contacts.

Same happens, when I drap and drop a category from my addressbook to "all contacts", the use case obviously wouldn't make sense, but shouldn't end in such a destructive behaviour.

Thanks for reading.

thanks a lot, this will be solved in next version (in instance of approbation) by disabling the possibility to drag and drop to a virtual address book's category

UPDATE: Philippe has been great about fixing things, and has fixed the data loss in the new Beta version, near as I can tell. Since CardBook is going to be a very good add-on, I'm changing my Rating for it.


OLD REVIEW BELOW:

*** DATA LOSS ALERT ***

And yes, I will contact the author about it as soon as I post this here.

CardBook is a potentially good addon, with (so far) a pretty serious data error in the concatenated (lumped together) Email and URL fields. This bug DELETES data from Email (No Type) and URL (No Type) - and possibly from the other URL fields - and stores the deleted data ONLY in the concatenated field. It does not put the deleted email addrs and urls back in their original fields when exporting. They are trapped in the CardBook concatenated fields and would have to be copied out manually one at a time to export them or back them up into another format. If you can even figure out which email addrs and urls are the deleted ones.

The Name fields are also concatenated - but in this case it's only for display purposes, no data is deleted, and all the data exports just fine. The author very probably intended the Email and URL fields to work the same as the Name fields. I.e., without any data loss.

A program that deletes your data should not be used, so I'm sure the author will fix this issue ASAP.

this issue happening when importing csv files, will be solved in next version

Ausgezeichnetes Add-on zur Adressverwaltung in Thunderbird. CardBook synchronisiert sich ohne PProbleme mit einer Nextcloud / Owncloud Installation, so dass Adressen auf verschiedensten Gerätren verfügbar sind (Für Android empfehle ich die App DAVDroid). Es sind viele Felder vorhanden, Geburtstage werden von Lightning übernommen. Verbesserungsfähig ist die Listen-Verwaltung. Um eine Mail-Liste zu erstellen muss man die zugehörigen Kontakte einzeln in einem extra Fenster in die Liste ziehen. Es wäre besser, wenn man z.B. per Kontextmenu im Hauptfenster die Kontakte einer Liste zuordnen könnte. Etwas verwirrend ist das Datumsformat für Geburtstage.

Bonjour,
Merci beaucoup Philippe pour cette extension indispensable qui fait de Thunderbird un outil complet (je l'utilise professionellement et personellement de façon très satisfaisante combiné à un serveur Nextcloud pour la synchronisation des contacts et des agendas).
Pour info, il y a une demande pour demander son intégration nativement dans Thunderbird (comme on l'a fait pour Lightning). Le vote c'est ici : https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1372580

Grundsätzlich sehr brauchbar, bis jetzt.
3 Punkte die mich stören:
1. Seit Version 32.6 kann ich kein Adressbuch mehr anlegen, auch die vorläufige Version 32.7 bringt keine Abhilfe. Ich habe also wieder auch 32.5 "down gegraded".
2. Ich benutze cardbook auf 2 verschiedenen Rechnern, mit der Schnittstelle zu einem Synology NAS. Auf beiden Rechnern sind die Anordnung und Anzahl der Eingabefelder unterschiedlich, trotz der gleichen Version 32.5
3. Es gibt ein paar Datensätze, die sich nicht mehr synchronisieren lassen (code 403). Mir ist noch nicht ersichtlich warum nicht. Ich habe keine gemeinsamen Merkmale dieser Datensätze zu anderen Daten gefunden.

1/ ooh stupid me : 32.7 (in instance of approbation) will correct this bug
2/ 3/ you surely do not have the same address book version... create address books with the same version (3.0) on your two computers and this should solve this issue

Ich hatte CardBook in TB 60.3.0 (32-bit) auf einem Win10-Rechner installiert, und seit kurzem wurden jedesmal die Mails, deren Adresse ich in CardBook übernehmen wollte, mit dem Klick auf ›OK‹ komplett entfernet. Sie landeten also auch nicht im Papierkorb, sondern waren nirgendwo mehr auffindbar. Das war selbstverständlich nicht akzeptabel, weshalb ich das ansonsten sehr nützliche Add-on entfernt habe.

Its good that someone writes something to use with CardDAV, but its far away from useful. Its a completely new IDE, when we just needed a interface. please do not rewrite the address-book of Thunderbird. Do just the Interface to CardDAV.

Bonjour,
j'utilise la dernière version de cardbook.
Quand je sélectionne un contact, je vois dans le panneau de droite les détails du contact. J'ai en besoin de réduire ce panneau jsuq'à ne plus le voir. Problème : maintenant je n'arrive plus le rouvrir.
J'ai essayé dans les options, j'ai désinstallé et réinstallé le module, mais les anciens réglages sont toujours là.
Comment faire pour retrouver ce panneau ?
ou comment faire pour réinitialiser tous les paramètres de cardbook ?
Cordialement,
