Outlook categories sync


does BB10 sync the categories of events with exchange/outlook?

There is no info on the website.


BB7 uses the categories in contacts and tasks but not events.


we search our future devices and BB10 looks good for us. but the categories are essential for us.

Re: Outlook categories sync

Hey stefanfrei,


Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.


Thanks for the question.


The categories within calendar in Outlook will not synchronize to BlackBerry 10. 


Let me know if you have any more questions.

Re: Outlook categories sync

Thanks for Info.


Its it possible to sync multiple Outlook-Calendars (Exchange) instead of the Categories ?


For example:

In one Exchange-Account i can create multiple calendars.

Could they be synced with Z10 over active-sync with different colors ?


Thank you,

Re: Outlook categories sync

OK... the fact that Outlook categories do not sync is not really a problem.  I can do a work around for that.  The problem I have is that anytime I make a change on my BBQ10, it ERASES ALL OF THE CATEGORIES I have set in Outlook.  This is a huge problem for me.  Please advise
