Default Calendar Question

Hello,

I have a quick question to ask of ya'll here. Am I able to send alerts
(reminders of scheduled activies on my calender) from my calender to my
mobile device. As I am usually not home except in the morning and the
evenings and do not own a laptop or a palm pilot, this would be very
convenient.

I find this newsgroup terribly confusing as to the mechanics; I guess
I'm used to email listservs more than newsgroups.
Below, I've copied into this reply, several items: my original
question, Sue Mosher's "different time zone" response which I couldn't
figure out, and the response I submitted with the additional
information that appears below, under my phrase, "Sue, I'm confused by
your response." Hope my copy and paste approach doesn't do too much
duplication, but I really need to figure out the answer to this
problem.

Thanks, in advance, for your help!

Bob

Some people are using their department calendar to post if someone is
sick or out on vacation. When they post such an entry on one single day
(say January 5, 2005) in Outlook, then go to someone else's computer
and look at that same appointment on that same shared calendar, the
appointment has changed: it now is a recurring appointment lasting from
today (the day the appointment was entered) through the day before
(1/4/05) the day for which they posted it (1/5/05). This in spite of
the fact that it was clearly not entered as a recurring appointment.
Any thoughts on why this is happening?


Bob

The two machines are set for different time zones or have different

Sue, I'm confused by your response: "

different time zones or have different Daylight Savings Time settings


.."

I have checked and all the machines are set for the same time zone. I'm
not quite sure whether they all have different DST time settings, but I
will check; I forgot to last time I was down there.


But I'm wondering why a divergence in one of these settings would make
an appointment go from being a one-day appointment on one computer, to
being a multi-day appointment on another computer, when the appointment
is being viewed from the same calendar on both computers?


We have also discovered a related(?) problem in the same department,
today. A number of department employees have permissions to place
appointments on each other's computers. In one instance, the originator
employee entered an appointment for 8am to 1pm. Another employee viewed
that same appointment on that same calendar (from anothe computer) and
the bar on the calendar shows as a one-hour appointment at 1pm. But
when you double-click on that appointment bar, the dialog box shows it
clearly as being from 8am to 1pm. All these employees can schedule each
other's time, so they carefully block out lunch, breaks, time off, etc.
so that the system works. This same originator employee entered a 4pm
break time on her computer. The same second employee doesn't see that
4pm break time on the originator's calendar, at all. The second
employee does not have Windows XP, but pretty much everyone else does.
Could this be part of the problem. It still seems pretty bizarre, even
if that is the cause of the problem. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks!

Outlook stores an all-day event as an appointment that runs from 12 a.m. to
12 a.m. So, say I'm in Eastern time zone and you're in Central. If you open
that same appointment on your machine, it won't be an all day appointment.
It will be set to start at 12 a.m. Eastern time, but since you're in Central
time, that's 11 p.m., so you'll see that appointment as spanning 2 days --
frm 11 p.m. one day to 11 p.m. the next.

So, the next step to try to resolve the issue is to check the time zone
settings and daylight savings time settings on the different client machines
involved. The easiest way to do that is to right-click the time display in
the Windows system tray and choose Adjust Date/TIme. It sounds like you've
done that, but you might want to check again now that (hopefully) you
understand the issue a little better.

This is the most common issue that fits at least some of the symptoms you
describe. Of course, you might be running into something completely
different and even previously unknown. I certainly can't explain the odd
behavior on delegated calendars.

What version of Outlook is involved?

The Google groups interface has a reply command, but you must be logged in
to use it.

And what is the issue with them? The newsgroup interface you are using
apparently does not quote earlier messages in the thread, making your latest
message so short on detail that you risk not getting the answer you're
looking for. Please take the time to quote the original message.

Sue, I'm not getting the hang of displaying the message I'm responding
to, so I just copied and pasted all of the history of my
correspondence, and the responses received, below.

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong to not display the message I'm
responding to. I had assumed it was like an email reply that the
message to which you were responding was automatically quoted, unless
you deleted some or all of it.

Hope the text below is not too confusing, but I think it is pretty
complete.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Bob

I believe I'm having similar issues. one of the secretaries has access to the
bosses calendar. on his calendar it shows a 1 hour meeting, on hers it shows
up on the day she typed in the entry in until its over, which is very
confusing. especially if she types it in a week or two in advance. we also
run Outlook 2002, on XP machines.

I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong to not display the message I'm

you deleted some or all of it.

Hope the text below is not too confusing, but I think it is pretty

Outlook stores an all-day event as an appointment that runs ¬*from 12
a.m. to
12 a.m. So, say I'm in Eastern time zone and you're in Centr¬*al. If
you open
that same appointment on your machine, it won't be an all da¬*y
appointment.
It will be set to start at 12 a.m. Eastern time, but since y¬*ou're in
Central
time, that's 11 p.m., so you'll see that appointment as span¬*ning 2
days --
frm 11 p.m. one day to 11 p.m. the next.


So, the next step to try to resolve the issue is to check th¬*e time
zone
settings and daylight savings time settings on the different¬* client
machines
involved. The easiest way to do that is to right-click the t¬*ime
display in
the Windows system tray and choose Adjust Date/TIme. It soun¬*ds like
you've
done that, but you might want to check again now that (hopef¬*ully) you

understand the issue a little better.


This is the most common issue that fits at least some of the¬* symptoms
you
describe. Of course, you might be running into something com¬*pletely
different and even previously unknown. I certainly can't exp¬*lain the
odd
behavior on delegated calendars.


What version of Outlook is involved?


The Google groups interface has a reply command, but you mus¬*t be
logged in
to use it.
