    Outlook Categories Searchable on Blackberry

    Advertisement



    I extensively use the categories in Outlook to catgegorize my contacts. I have not yet found a way to search my contacts based on the categories assigned to my contacts through the Blackberry search feature. Is there a way of doing this? If not, is there third party software that can do this?

    You can create groups in your address book and sort your contacts through that, if thats the sort of thing you're talking about.

    I am really trying to find if there is a way to do a search for outlook categories on the Blackberry, either with the built in tools, or a third party application.

    In your address book on your BB in the menu choose filter and then select the category you want to search through. I think that is what you mean anyway.

    That's exactly what he means, I'm sure. Good response. The only problem is that you are limited to selecting one and only one Category to filter on. That doesn't perform the way Outlook does when filtering on categories, and needs to be changed. Which reminds me, I need to find and bump the post on the RIM Suggestion forum on this subject.

    Thanks for the reminder.

    Thank you for the answer as this does what I am looking for. Also agreed on the additional post of the limitation to only one category.

    Thanks all!
