Feature Request: Cure Contact Sync Madness Disease (CSMD) -- CardDAV to the Rescue! :)
After years of frustration regarding the utter lack of a functional 2-way sync process between Google Contacts and Insighly Contacts, and many appointments with my doctor, I've come to realize that we're all thinking about this the wrong way. Why are we trying to *sync* anything?!?
Managing contacts is Insightly's job. We should instead be able to just use Insightly as a contact list provider within our iPhone or other smart devices. In other words, why not just do what Google Contacts is doing natively?
To be clear, I'm asking Insightly to implement the CardDAV protocol:
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/CardDAV natively so that we don't have to fool around with these terrible sync solutions. FastMail recently implemented
this protocol to make their contacts accessible from iPhones and other smart devices, and all changes made on the device are automatically "synced" because they are made right at the source.
So, the thought occurred to me: Why doesn't Insightly provide an actual solution to the madness and provide native access to contacts from iPhones by providing CardDAV support? This precludes any need and complexities of performing syncs between different contact repositories.
"With CardDAV, you can access your FastMail contacts on your mobile phone, tablet or smart watch, with any changes you make on any device kept in sync"
