    Calendar Problem: Cannot Change "All Day Event" Box on Saved Appointments

    Advertisement



    I recently connected my personal blackberry to my company's BES for IBM Lotus and a wierd thing has happened with my calendar. When I create an appointment I can choose between checking the box for "all day event," or picking a specific time (this is normal). Once I make a selection and save the event I can go back and edit it, but the "all day event" box has a red backslash through it and I can't change that setting. If I previously had an all day event that I want to change to a specific time (for example I knew I had a tentatively scheduled meeting on Friday but hadn't yet picked a specific time), the only thing I can do is delete the appointment and start over which means I would have to retype all the information.

    I'm pretty sure that the BES for IBM Lotus is to blame from some troubleshooting I've done. I took another blackberry and wiped everything. I tried creating calendar events, saving them, and then checking and unchecking the "all day event" box without any problems. I then connected that freshly wiped blackberry to the network and found the same problem all over again. Once I saved an apointment it was impossible to check or uncheck the "all day event" box.

    I should say as a disclaimer that I'm not a network adminsitrator. My IT department is overloaded and say they won't have time to look into the problem for a few weeks. I'm trying to find the solution on my own, but I know that I'm a bit over my head here. Has anybody heard of this problem? I've found nothing about it online.

    This is not a bug it is how it works. When I train new BB users I always tell them once they decide on an all day event ( or repeating event) once you decide your stuck if you want to change it you have to delet the orginal and recreate the way you want it now.

    I don't think so. Have you tried playing with a freshly wiped blackberry that's not conected to BES? I've never had the problem before syncing with BES.
