Default Syncing Multiple Calendars From Different Systems

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

We have a consultant working for our company who owns a BlackBerry (8700g with T-Mobile). She is syncing her BlackBerry wirelessly with her primary company's BES server. We do not have a BES server nor do any of our users have BlackBerrys. She would like to start syncing her Outlook 2003 Calendar from her Exchange account with our organization in addition to what she is already doing with her primary company. From my understanding the BlackBerry only has one calendar itself, so we would be looking to sync the two corporate Calendars onto her one BlackBerry calendar.

Is this possible? If so, can you explain how to do this? I've read so much information on this I'm getting confused. It doesn't help that I have no experience with BlackBerrys and don't have one that I can test with. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I believe this is possible. If she is going to be synching the calendar from your company, and won't be using a BES, then she will be synching using a USB cable to with Outlook. What she will need to do is disable wireless synchronization (Calendar > Options) of her calendar while she uses the USB cable to synch with the computer at your company. Then she can turn back on the wireless synchronization on her BlackBerry. Keep in mind, too, that the entries she syncga from the calendar from your company computer WILL be then stored in her calendar on her primary company's calendar.

Thanks for your help. So I take it I need to install the BlackBerry Desktop Software on her PC. Are there any specific configuration options I should be aware of when installing it? I don't want to wipe out any of her BES configuration settings.

I also saw that you could somehow sync Outlook Web Access with your BlackBerry. Would this be an option in the scenario I described?

Default Thinking...hmmmm....

You have your hands full with this one. If she is doing wireless sync with her BES and you do manage to get your company calendar into her BB they will become one calendar and start syncing all her stuff to both calendars. I'm in that mess with my personal calendar and my work calendar. You have your hands full and with no Bb experience you're in big trouble. If it was all wireless you could map different calendars to the Bb using the desktop software but the wireless sync throws the whole off. Anytime you go outside the standard calendar sync with the BB its a pain in the BB.

In short, there is no easy answer or solution. Wireless on, wireless off Danielson!
