    One Calendar - Multiple Handsets

    Advertisement



    A lot of our PA's have been given BB's, and this itself was a chore. Now they want to know if they can see their bosses calendars on the handset as well as their own! Is this possible? If so, How?

    Most of them have 8100 Pearls, and we use a BES.

    Please help!

    Make sure they have access to their bosses' calendars in (I'm assuming you're on Exchange) Outlook. Add the boss's calendar as a secondary calendar via Intellisync/Synchronize in Desktop Manager.

    The caveats are:
    - This requires USB sync
    - Entries from both calendars appear together on the BB (it only has one calendar app)
    - IIRC the boss's calendar is one-way sync only

    Re: One Calendar - Multiple Handsets

    Hello, this can be done with Desktop Manager and PC synchronization. This can NOT be done wirelessly. My recommendation has always been simple in corporate environments.... If access or functionality can not be done wirelessly, do NOT deploy the function.

    Supporting Desktop Manager in the corporate environment is more of a hassle than it is worth. Your users need to be very savvy to have it work well without a billion support calls to your support Help Desk.

    We have had to deploy it. It even features on our standard build. When/If a BB is then deployed, we give instructions on the use of DM (primarily for charging, and the occasional forced sync).
