Built into most modern day operating systems, WebDAV is a method based on HTTP for users to edit and manage documents and files that are stored on servers over the Internet. By enabling WebDAV service on DiskStation, you will be able to open up a Word document or Excel spreadsheet and work on it over the Internet.
Synology’s mobile file access app, DS file, allows users to access files on iOS & Android devices via WebDAV protocol. So you’ll always have files ready at hand, no matter where you are.
WebDAV offers file-locking, making sure the file you are working on is locked away from other WebDAV users to protect file integrity. Some applications, such as Microsoft Office applications, also support simultaneous file sharing between users.
There are times that we accidentally press the delete button and see the file go past the point of no return. WebDAV now comes with Recycle Bin to restore the files in a flash, helping you stay cool even when accidents strike.
You can easily publish and share your calendars with your colleagues, friends and families by publishing them to a WebDAV server, hosted by your DiskStation. This feature comes in handy when you want to share your working schedule with others but don’t have a specific software application like Microsoft Exchange.
With the support of CalDAV, your DiskStation can instantly become a calendar server, so all your CalDAV clients like iCal on Mac OS, iOS (iPhone, iPod touch and iPad), or Mozilla Sunbird can be synchronized without any effort. Your calendar server is also protected by HTTPS so sharing and publishing calendars will be safe and sound.
