Question How to copy and paste a Calander Appointment?

Please Login to Remove!

I come from WinMo and you could always copy and paste appointments. How do I do this with BB? I have notes and stuff attached the appointment which is why I don't just create a new appointment


So mainly I have this meeting that reoccurs every week, but it is not set in stone, so I can not set it up as a re-occurrence. I would like to be able to copy the appointment from last week and paste it into the forwarding week without deleting or moving the old appointment. So I can track it.

You can accomplish this by holding down the shift key and scrolling the track ball. But I must say itís much easier to do in Outlook.

When I do that it just opens the appointment. The Meeting is at hte very end of the day. I held the aA button used the trackball click. That just opened the appointment. I also followed the same steps but pressed the menue button.

It would be helpful, if the recurring appt function had broader capabilities in my opinion

I agree, this is something that I have always wanted on my Blackberry.

I don't like to just change the date of an existing appointment because then I lose my history - which I like to keep archived.

Sorry I didn't explain, you have to open the appointment and then copy and paste the seperate parts of the event to a new event.

If I understand correctly, what you would like to do is copy the entire appointment entry to a new date. I don't believe that the BlackBerry calendar is capable of doing this but PocketDay has this feature.

To quote their web site: "PocketDay is a full featured Today Screeen, Personal Information Manager and Utility application suite developed specifically for BlackBerry devices."

I am currently using it on a trial basis. It's a great way of conbining your upcoming calendar events with your to do list, missed calls, emails, ect all in one view. It also allows you to select a calendar event and copy it to a new date.

You can download a trial version at PocketDay
