Smile Blackberry Calendar

Please Login to Remove!

Is there anyway to either see the actual event on a month view calendar (not just a box indicating an appointment) or a way to search your calendar for a particular event. For instance, if my daughter asks me when her next ortho appointment is, can I type in a search for ortho and have it take me to the next appointment? Has anyone had any success with a third party software calendar program such as agendus for their blackberry.

yes

There should be a magnifying glass icon or simply press "s" for search depending on your settings

If I can continue this thread...

Is there a way to just view all calendered items. I was trying to find out if I had scheduled a doc's appt for later this month but did not know if under doc's name or just doc or type of doc (surg). So I just wanted to see everything in a chronological list. Is there a way to see ALL?

You might want to use the Agenda View. It'll list out all appointments in chronological order. May involve some scrolling but it'll be there.

I agree - Having a "search" feature available directly from the calender menu would be a very helpful optiom.

I think I know what you mean because I do the samething myself...

All my doc appts are in my BB calendar (with the doc's phone number in the notes of the appt)... I go into the search and search for the word "Doc" and check the calendar Box only when it searches it finds every calendar event with the word "doc" in it, it lists it in the following format.

%Date&
&Subject of appt/event%
%Date2&
&Subject of appt/event2%
%Date3&
&Subject of appt/event3%
etc
etc

Or as mentioned before the agenda view will the closest thing to a list view.

Oops just re-read your post, yea the Angenda view will do what you want, you will just have to scroll down till you find the day/appt name.

Thanks. More PT and Doc appts than I'm generally use to. You know - standing at the checkin/out desk and they are throwing dates/times at you fast and furious and you settle on one quickly. So I have been quickly throwing them into the calendar and not being as methodical as I could be - random subjects just to get them entered.

I like Agenda view for its list.

Ultimately searching would NOT have worked - I did forget to enter the one I was looking for but knew I had one for end of March.

I have the blackberry curve 8330 and do not see a magnifying glass or a search option. Can someone tell me where you are typing in to do the search. Can't find it anywhere.

From your homescreen press the menu key to see all your visible icons. Look for the magnifying glass icon. That's the search option. From there you can select where you want to search in (calendar, address book, etc).

Ok...found the search/magnifying feature. Very helpful. Thank you. As for my next question. Has anyone found a third party calendar software that will show appointments on a month view calendar so I can just open up a screen and see my whole month's appointments just as you would a month view calendar on a wall. Thank you.

Open your calendar and hit the menu key go into the options, find the initial view option and set it to month.

If you're talking about software for your BB, I doubt there is any as the screen would be too small to display all that info.

If you don't like the built-in calendar's Agenda view, take a look at Pocket Informant. When you roll the trackball to move the day highlighted you see all the appointments for that day on the lower section of the screen.

I purchased Agendus and I have to say I wasn't thrilled with the application. For my use, I didn't really find it much different than the standard BlackBerry Calendar application. As a matter of fact, I don't even have it installed on my device, at this moment. Perhaps I should give it another go and see if there is anything I may have overlooked. If I change my opinion on this application I will message you.

I haven't been thrilled with Pocket Informant either. It has a few features that the built-in PIM does not, but they're kind of minor features. What I REALLY wanted was the week-at-a-glance calendar view, showing a week at a time like an old fashioned paper datebook. But the one in PI is laid out wrong! Instead of Mon Tues Wed. on the left and Thurs Fri Sat/Sun on the right, it goes across, so Monday is on the left and Tuesday on the right. And so far it's not user-fixable. Who does something like this? Support claimed it was the common way for these things to work, but I've sure never seen it. I call "Rubbish"!
