Default Online Calendar Sync [advice needed]

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all, new here.

Here is the situation. I currently have a Treo 650, however, I just got confirmation from corporate that it will never be supported, that my only option to access corporate email is to get a BB. So that is what brings me here.

I know that I am buying the 8703 from Sprint.

Here is my question.

I use Outlook at work and plan on using the BB calendar which syncs with Outlook. I really need to make my calendar available to other people. I know how to accomplish this when everyone is using Outlook/Exchange, but the people that need to access my calendar are using Lotus Notes and under strict administration rules (no software installs etc.). I want to be able to use my Outlook/BB calendar, and have it automatically (if possible) sync with some type of online calendar (Yahoo or Google). I have researched and it seems this is possible.

What exactly would be the best way to accomplish this? Thank you in advance for your insight.

Outlook syncs over the air with the BB and the BB updates the calendar in Outlook if you make changes on the BB or add a date. The users who have access to the outlook calendar now will not loose this view because you add a link to the BB. As for syncing with an online calendar, if your company has restrictions and security for it's email you may not be able to do this. Most companys do not allow outsiders to view any internal resources.
Someone may have a 3rd party method but even that would need the ability to collect and send your calendar outside the company network. you may be stuck with manual update on the external calendar

Thank you for the info. I am going to contact IT tomorrow and see what I can find out.
