3 General Issues and Workarounds
3.1 Synchronization issues
- Address Book categories are not synchronized when using Oracle CorporateSync.
- You cannot synchronize yearly recurring appointments that do not have end dates.
- If you synchronize an untimed Event, Oracle CorporateSync sets the Event's reminder on the Calendar server to your Daily Note reminder default instead of your Day Event reminder default.
- Oracle CorporateTime's To Do Item priority levels are different from those on your mobile device. If you have a To Do Item on your mobile device and you synchronize, Oracle CorporateSync may change the priority level of that To Do Item on the Calendar server.
- If you create an Appointment with a title longer than 65 characters and perform a Full Synchronization, Oracle CorporateSync truncates the title. This also occurs for Location (maximum 32 characters) and Details (32K maximum)
- Oracle CorporateSync only supports English-language synchronization.
- Completed Tasks are always synchronized.
- If your user name is a subset of another user name on the Calendar server (for example, if your user name is John Waters and another person's user name is John Waterson), or if you are a Resource's contact person, you must use your user ID to synchronize.
3.2 Signing in
When you sign in to Oracle CorporateSync, a list of possible matches for duplicate names is not displayed.
Suggested workaround: Enter as much unique user information as possible.
3.3 Time zones
Palm devices cannot handle different time zones; therefore, a Palm device always reads the time zone from your desktop. Make sure your desktop is using the same time zone as Oracle CorporateTime.
