Default syncing up palm to bb?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm using the Manager Intellisync option to sync up my palm stuff to my bb. I go through all the steps and get a the 'successfully imported' message, but when I check my bb, I do not see any of the data from my palm.

The bb is hooked up to lotus notes for business and my palm is for personal stuff. I do not want to have my private stuff in lotus notes, so I would prefer to be able to sync up the palm to the bb. This would save me the hassle of carrying around two devices in addition to my personal cell phone.

Any experiences out there?

Okay, I uninstalled Palm and reinstalled it so I can sync up with Outlook. Now I can sync Outlook to my BB. Yay.

Only problem: I want Outlook to house my private calendar items, which go to the BB. Once on the BB, my Outlook calendar items then get sync'ed up to my Lotus Notes...which people can see at work...Any thoughts?

You can separate it from your work by turning off, and leaving off, the wireless sync for calendar, etc. There is only one calendar app for the BB and it all goes into the one. You will then have to sync with the cable, with Outlook, in order to keep everything current....

Thanks John. I think I understand your advice. Problem is I have to use Lotus Notes as it is used across the company for people to invite for meetings etc.

I guess I could turn off Wireless and then 1)export the Notes Calendar to BB (thus only having my Business items), 2) then sync BB with Outlook which will house all private and business items. That would mean I would have to manually delete some Lotus Notes stuff from the BB if things change.

I figured out another way: which is leave the Wireless on. Then import only from Outlook my private items onto BB. In Configure Reconciliation, I choose Import deletes and moves only rather than synchro. Lasly, Synchronize Now. This seems to prevent my Outlook items from going to my Lotus Notes wirelessly , but they do appear on my BB.

Both ways seem a bit torturous...but if that's the price of keeping private items off Lotus Notes...

You could also mark your stuff private so that people who have access to your calendar doesn't see what you are up to in your private life.

Yeah, that would be the backup plan if all else proves too cumbersome. With private items, people can't see details, but will still see hours blocked out etc. I know the odds of anyone at my company caring are almost nil, but just in case, I'd prefer to avoid this option. Just in case one person out of a 100,000 checks and sees that I've got Sunday afternoon blocked out, etc.
