Default Anyone using ScheduleWorld?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm eagerly anticipating trying to use sync4j to wirelessly sync with my exchange server. However, until I get the time to try and tackle that project, I was considering trying out Scheduleworld, which appears to be a 3rd party sync4j server from which you can obtain an account.

However, it's still unclear to me what features scheduleworld really offers. As far as I can tell, it allows you to wirelessly sync your BB calendar to their server. I presume you can sync your Outlook calendar to their server as well, correct?

Has anyone enrolled in this service and used it?
If so, I would appreciate any comments you can provide.
For instance, are you able to sync tasks and notes as well?
It was also unclear as to whether html access is offered to your data?

All insight appreciated.

I set up ScheduleWorld a few weeks ago, but haven't had the opportunity to play with it much. Using the Sync4j Outlook client, you can sync calendar, contacts, tasks, and notes. The Sync4j BB client does not, however, allow tasks and notes to be synchronized. The Outlook sync can be automated, but the BB sync is manual. Fairly easy to set up; even I was able to do it without incident. As far as I know, only a Java interface is currently available; no HTML access for now.

As an alternative to ScheduleWorld, Sync4j is apparently testing a similar portal service. In the following thread, which was read by about three people (including me and my infant daughter), a Sync4j guy invites folks to give the portal a try by sending him an e-mail. Haven't had time to follow up on that option yet, but it's out there if you want to give it a try. Non-BES wireless sync options

I am currently using the sync4j portal and have installed the outlook client and the BB client. I can sync my calander, but the re-occurring appointments don't sync correctly.

Dawg, what client/version are you using?

brianbreck, interesting, I don't think I tried any recurring appts. Is the problem that a recurring event created in one app (Outlook or BB) is not showing up as a recurring event in the other?

The recurring appointments in Outlook are not showing up as recurring on the BB. I have not tried it the other way yet.
