Default Bullhorn+AstraSync on Blackberry - Calendar Issue

Bullhorn+AstraSync on Blackberry - Calendar Issue

I have a Blackberry I just use for work. I bought it because I did not want my Blackberry calendar on my PERSONAL phone syncing with Bullhorn via Astra Sync. Long story short, my PERSONAL Blackberry is on the fritz (see my other post from this morning) and I may need to exclusively use my work Blackberry for personal and work. I do not want personal calendars syncing with Bullhorn/Astra Sync "work" calendar, and have found that Google calendars may be a solution, but is there a way to view these calendars (without going through the Blackberry browser to by clicking a calendar icon? And the next question is, how do I get more calendars/icons on my BB desktop? I tried to load the gmail app or whatever, but don't understand exactly what that will do? Will it sync and dump those appts into the ONE calendar on my phone now (the default one that Bullhorn syncs to)? And what if I don't want this to happen?

In a nutshell: I need at least 2 SEPERATE calendars on my phone or a way to designate calendar entries so they DO NOT sync with Bullhorn, only with Gmail calendar. I AM SO FRUSTRATED WITH THIS, and I KNOW there must be a solution---this is a dumb reason for me to have to have 2 phones!!

I am sorry if this is convoluted at all, please message me if you need clarification. I will KISS anyone who can help me. SO ANNOYED! :S

Default Re: Bullhorn+AstraSync on Blackberry - Calendar Issue

Hi alifarnsworth

AstraSync will by default only sync one calendar. You can tell it which calendar to sync in the options page, and you can define which calendar appointments go into when creating them.

Blackberries can support more than one calendar, these are defined in service books on the device and are generally created by BIS and BES links and some applications such as Facebook.

If you already have a gmail account then by adding a GMail BIS email account you should get another Calendar added to your device.

More discussion on separate calendars can be found here: d_copied_from_the_forum_with_grateful_thanks%282E% 29 (Replace BES with AstraSync / Default calendar)

If you have any more problems you will receive a faster response to your questions if you post on our own forums at which are monitored by our support staff. (please include a link to this post if you do post to our forums.)

Kind Regards,

AstraSync Technical Support
