Thread: Datasync, Groupwise and iPhone Tasks

  1. #1

    Lightbulb Datasync, Groupwise and iPhone Tasks

    Hi,

    We currently have Data Synchronizer 1.2.4 setup but are thinking of moving to Groupwise Mobility 2.0.1 but I seem to have a small issue.

    On the Data Synchronizer the items we have chosen to sync is everything except for tasks. What I have noticed is that, on the iPhones within the inbuilt Reminders app, you can enter reminders (tasks) and this will sync using the Data Synchronizer to all your other Apple devices. The start of the problem i'm having is that these items appear nowhere with groupwise, so im wondering where they are held.

    The reason this is an issue for me is that we are creating a new mobility server 2.0.1 and as soon as we move the phones to the new server, all this information users have entered into reminders is disappearing, you have to move them back to the original Data Synchronizer to see this information.

    I have searched all through the Groupwise client to see if these items are being created as mail, calendar entries etc but there is nothing. If the users could find this information themselves or if I could import these items into the new Groupwise Mobility then this wouldn't be such an issue.

    We currently run groupwise version 8.0.3

    Thanks for your help.

    I would certainly check the users' GroupWise Tasklist to see if those
    tasks did get synced despite your setting. This could be one of those
    issues where the old version was doing what you told it not to do, and now
    the new version is behaving as you asked it to do.

    Hi,

    Yeah I have checked, as I said, even though task syncing is not ticked these will sync between devices and are no where to be seen within any part (tasks, calendars, mail etc) of groupwise. I have looked manually and searched.

    The reason I feel these are getting held within groupwise is that, if you configure the new groupwise mobility in the same way i.e no task syncing, your items do not appear, you have to go back to the old data sync to find them.

    I have been thorough in my attempts before I posted on the forums. If you have any suggestions, that would be great.

    What happens if you set the new GMS to sync tasks? Does it behave itself
    then? Or does it remove those old ones and replace with any GW tasks?

    I have no doubt you are thorough, we just have to check the obvious
    because so many of the smartest people still miss the occasional obvious
    thing. The only way we know what you did is what you report here.

    I think you are facing opening a Service Request on this one.
