Contact DataPermanent link for this heading

You can define your own contact data.

On the “Data Protection” tab, you can generate an excerpt that contains only your personal data (contact data) stored in the user administration of the Fabasoft Cloud. Please note that Fabasoft Cloud organizations manage their data themselves (user data) and that further personal data may appear in it. Personal data in user data cannot be contained in this information.

NotificationsPermanent link for this heading

You can define about which events you want to be informed. You can be informed either by e-mail or by events displayed in the Teamroom (“Show New Events” action). In the card view, the number of changes is displayed on the Teamroom, since you viewed the events for the last time.

To configure the notifications, perform the following steps:

  1. Click the account menu (your user name) and then click “Advanced Settings” > “Notifications”.
  2. Click the “Settings” button.
  3. On the “Notifications” or “Disabled Notifications” tab, define for which Teamrooms or dashboards you want to receive events.
    Note: For the objects entered, the setting applies to the entire hierarchy unless another setting has been made for a subordinate object.
  4. On the “Settings” tab, define about which events you want to be informed.
  5. Click “Save” to apply the changes.

Access for ApplicationsPermanent link for this heading

The access to the Fabasoft Private Cloud with external applications such as CMIS, CalDAV, WebDAV, RSS or web services has to be protected with an own generated password. The password has a validity period and can be renewed and revoked.

To generate passwords for applications, perform the following steps:

  1. Open the account menu (your user name) and click “Advanced Settings” > “Access for Applications“.
  2. In the Passwords for Applications field, click “New”.
  3. Select an external application in the Valid for field.
  4. Choose a validity period.
  5. Click “Next”.

The generated password will be displayed. The password has to be entered at the applications instead of your own one.


  • If a generated password runs out shortly or has already run out an e-mail is sent to your login e-mail address.
  • To extend passwords, select the menu entry “Renew all”. The passwords will be extended by the entered validity period. You can also extend a single password by editing the entry.
  • If you want to change a generated password, you have to revoke it and generate a new one.
