Here is the problem, select the same appointment (the recurring one that just ended) and open the series, if you try to assign/change sound profile using this app you will get the following message "you must select a future calendar entry. PLease select a future claendar entry and try again". Does this mean that this app will not set the profile for every future recurring appointment and it has to be set manually? How will one be able to set the sound profile using this app for recurring appointment when opening the series?
    I've been thinking about recurring appointments and how to handle that. I have some ideas, but I'd like to hear from you guys about what you would like to see in that area. My idea is to only show one record in the rules, then, when that occurrence expires, the rule is updated with the next occurrence.

    So what is the point of an end time in a rule? Why not simply have a time the rule is implemented... it doesn't really "End"... Seems like extra work to set an end time, which really doesn't change anything.

    There is no way to capture the current profile setting, and use that info to implement it at the "End" time???

    I know my previous Nokia (I realize it's a different OS) allowed you to set a time period whenever you changed Profiles. It would revert back to the Profile it was set on, when you implemented the change, after a designated time period.

    i.e. Change from "Normal" to "Quiet", and select two hours, and after the two hours, it reverted back to "Normal" setting.

    Re: Profile Switching Application Now Available

    last night when i installed the program i tried to make a new profile, it gave me an error, and froze my device.

    after a battery pull, i tried to access the software again and it is unresponsive. so at this moment, im uninstalling and trying again. hopefully it was just a glitch?

    I must have misstated what happens. Let's say you have a rule that runs from 7AM to 10PM that specifies the NORMAL profile. Then you have a meeting from 3PM to 4PM. Calendar rules are special. When the meeting ends at 4PM the profile will revert to the NORMAL profile according to the 7AM to 10PM rule. I thought you were referring to a "normal" rule (non calendar), and a profile selected that didn't fall within a known rule.

    Re: Profile Switching Application Now Available

    After the time comes for a profile switch, ....The profiles menu open's but I have to select which profile I want. Is that how it's supposed to work?

    I selected the "phone only" option in the add rule.

    Re: Profile Switching Application Now Available

    not sure, but after d'ling this great sounding app, my BB has gotten really goofy.
    I did a batt pull, then i had the BB "Cycle of Death" happen
    red LED flash, then white screen, then red LED flash, then white screen, then red LED flash, then white screen, then red LED flash, then white screen, then red LED flash, then white screen, then red LED flash, then white screen, then red LED flash, then white screen, then red LED flash, then white screen, then
    etc....
    I timed it, it took a full 10min for my BB to finally reboot.
    Hasn't been right since.
    I'm hoping it wasn't the profile switcher.
    Gonna call TMO and get a refurb sent just in case.
    Then I'll try prof switcher again

    Re: Profile Switching Application Now Available

    All this needs is a custom profile select option. The not changing back to the previous profile can be worked around. Just set the profile changer to always use a certian profile 24/7, then use certian times and after the end time, it will change back to the 24/7 profile.

    Thanks again mdwheaton / WCS BlackBerry Services.

    Can you clarify this?

    1st, how do I set a Rule to always use a certain profile? Would I set it for, say, 12:00am - 11:59pm?

    And, if it's set to use the Normal Profile between those hours, why would it change if I create another rule for the hours between, say, 3pm and 5pm to use the Quiet Profile? How would it know which rule should prevail, since they both are supposed to take effect during the hours between 3-5pm?

    Perhaps the app. should allow a setting for a default Profile, if no Rule is in effect?

    New Version 1.2 Now Available!

    All,

    There's a new version of the Profile Scheduler available. Version 1.2

    You can download it from the link in the main post.
    NEW : There's now a link to a zip file that contains a Desktop Manager downloadable version.

    1.2 fixes some minor bugs.

    • Incorrect profile switch after a power up.
    • IndexOutOfBoundsException when creating Calendar rule for a Calendar event that has not been saved yet.

    i had something similar; my bb was freezing up the entire time. to the point it was taking about 2 minutes to open an email. i ended up uninstalling the app and it works fine now.

    my experience thus far:

    this application has had a varying reception from my device. as posted previously, it first started then was completely unable to engage. uninstalled, reinstalled...it appeared to be working correctly, i created 3 new profiles.

    after the second installation, it began to freeze up. i uninstalled and my device works flawlessly as before. im not sure what occurred but hopefully you've resolved it with the new update.

    good luck to everyone else using it! andre isnt liking it.
