 Syncing with Outlook is not supported at this time but they plan on later this year.  We have a long thread on this topic in the other area.

 

   I have no solution for the notes.  I use them to for everything from passwords to groceries.

When you are on BDS which connects to Exchange (which I guess you told us when saying you are using Balance) just have a look to the Remember App. Your Notes and Tasks should be there

Re: Outlook notes...howto sync them to my Blackberry z 10

I used ActivSync to connect to my Exchange account and my notes didn't Sync but my tasks did, and yes there are folders in the Remember APP for both of these items.

 

The notes folder is empty (even though I chose "yes" to notes during account setup). My Tasks folder did sync with Exchange but unfortunaley there is no support for recurring tasks on the Z10 so when you check that the task has been completed, it doesn't recreate itself. This feature was available in the previous OS. Hopefully it is just an oversight and will be rectified soon. After waiting patiently for so long for this phone it is a bit dissapointing that this along with other basic features did not come included right out of the box.

Have a look to other ActiveSync devices and you will notice that no device is able to synchronize memos and only iOS is able sync tasks. So BB10 is much better syncing your basic features right now than all the others :smileywink:

 

But I agree, there is still a lot to do for BlackBerry

Re: Outlook notes...howto sync them to my Blackberry z 10

When i look my task were trasfered over which is fine, as i only had two tasks. Hopefully Blackberry will get  a fix for this soon, as my notes hold all my data which i need pretty much everyday.

 

I wonder if i try to do a device switch will my notes trasfer from my old device to the z 10

Re: Outlook notes...howto sync them to my Blackberry z 10

I have a Q10 and am very disappointed at not being able to sync my computer Outlook notes with Blackberry. What were they thinking at ignoring this critical functionality?

I have Q10 as well, and all my Outlook notes in an Exchange environment are synced with active sync perfectly into Remember.

What i am missing is that some of the notes are not in the search index of BB10/Q10, so if searching for something which is definitly in Outlook notes and is a "task" in remember might not be found, some others are.

What goes on here? How to refresh the index?

Q10 Firmware/Software 10.1.0.238

 

... after some testing, I found that my Notes are also not synced. Only those are in Remember which were on Bold 9900 and I think were transfered with BB link software. No sync at all with Outlook notes via active sync.

Re: Outlook notes...howto sync them to my Blackberry z 10

At least you can save the notes to an Excel file and then upload it regularly to the Z10. You'll have all the important information without imputing it file by file.
