    Synching Multiple Calendars?

    Advertisement



    Hi All,

    I'm new to the boards here, but not that new to BBs. I recently upgraded my 7130 to a new 8130. So far, I love it! That being said, I want to increase the productivity of my BB. I have searched these boards, as well as others, but have not found my answer.

    My question is this...can I synch my Pearl with 2 separate calendars and/or contacts? Currently, I wirelessly synch with my work calendar (Lotus Notes), but do not synch with my contacts. Through BES, I can search for any company name or number that I need, so that's not necessary. I would like to synch with my home Outlook calendar and contacts, WITHOUT screwing up my work synch settings/calendar. I have Desktop Manager running on both PCs, however, at home I'm only using it for the Media Manager until I have a clear understanding of how it will impact my current setting at work.

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

    Cheers!

    You may run into major issues whlist trying to synch with Desktop Manager since you are configured for Wireless Synchronization on the corporate BES. It's like throwing a wrench into a well oiled machine's engine.

    What email services are you using with Outlook? There are some workarounds with email clients such as Gmail and Yahoo...

    I'm just using a POP Comcast mail account, which is already setup through the BIS service. Ultimately, I just want to synch with my personal Outlook calendar, thereby, transferring all of my work appts. to my personal calendar, and then also add my personal appts. to my BB.

    If this isn't possible, so be it...but you would figure it would be

    jd,
    We kicked this around the expert discussion forum and the consensous seems to be that it is possible, if a bit tricky. One thing to keep in mind is that if you sync with your personal calendar, all of your persoal events will then sync to your BES calendar. Same with your contacts. Now if thats OK one suggeston is that you take all of the outlook contacts on your home device, and assign them into a category before transferring them onto the device. Then, when setting up the Desktop Manager sync, tell DM to just export the contacts from Outlook to the BlackBerry, and not do a sync of the two. (thanks N8DBB)

    You may have calendar issues with overlapping events and appointments, so be prepared to deal with that and check carefully the first few times.

    This issue is still open so you may get a few more suggestions or tips - please check back in this thread for updates.

    If you decide to go for it post back and keep us informed.
