Default Calendarproblem: End date will be changed by BB

Please Login to Remove!

Hi there,

we have a strange problem:
On almost every handheld with 4.1 Firmware we notice the following issue:
User creates a "Anniversary" within Lotus Notes.
The Calendar-entry will be syncronized to the handheld.
There it will shows the end-date one day before the start-date:
For example:
Anniversary: Birthday Jack. 20.October 2006
Start-Date: 20.October 2006 04:00
End-Date: 20.October 2006 20:00

On handheld:
Start-Date: 20.October 2006 04:00
End-Date: 19.October 2006 20:00

Any idea ??

Default Date problem

I noticed this too, not only with anniversary but also birthday and task of my 7100v.

One solution I found is not to mark it as a 'whole day event'. Which means changing some option in outlook. The other solution I can think of is to change the sync manager to 'reverse' the dates. ie start date = end date and so on....

Long term solution? Still working on it

Hey pmichael,

If you sync using Desktop software Intellisync, it will be good to know if you are on the latest one. Check with your service provider.

If you wirelessly sync your calendar, it will be good to know if you are on the latest BES version. Check with your BES admin.
