Is it possible to sync Outlook Notes?

hi everyone,

 

 

we are using Exchange 2003 and testing BB10 at the moment.  I got the BB10 activated and activesync setup properly. Email/calendar/tasks/contacts are working fine, but only Notes couldn't get sync to the BB10. 

 

Im not sure if this is activesync problem or BB10 problem. As i recalled, Notes sync didn't work on iphone or android connecting via activesync either.  But i heard ppl saying that Notes can be synced between exchange and BB10 via activesync. So i'm wondering if it is possible, and if so, how to get it work?

 

Any help is much appreciated.

Yes -- theoretically.  Not working for me, though. 

 

When I set up my EAS account, I selected the option to sync notes.  This created a folder in Remember, as expected.  The folder even indicates that it sync's with that particular EAS account.  The only problem is that nuthin' syncs.  New entries on device don't sync to the Exchange account; notes from the Exchange account don't sync to Remember.

 

Still trying to figure this one out.

Re: Is it possible to sync Outlook Notes?

Hi,

Just my 2c of input here:

Have you enabled syncing of notes on the BES10?

Apart from that, in our case it turned out that initial sync of tasks and notes took about 30mins to complete after initial activation. Eventually everything was there - emails, calendar, contacts, tasks and notes (the latter two in "remember"). Have to admit though, that we're running Exchange 2010.

Also worth checking: is your problem with every user you activate on the BES10 or just some of them?

Re: Is it possible to sync Outlook Notes?

I have the same situation. Everything except the notes will sync. Not a deal breaker for me — just would be nice to have. I'm heavily invested in Evernote, which syncs perfectly with Remember.

Re: Is it possible to sync Outlook Notes?

unfortunately we have users who use notes a lot. Since notes work fine with Blackberry/BES ... if we really switch over to BB10/BDS, users would expect Notes to work the same way as their old Blackberry.

Re: Is it possible to sync Outlook Notes?

Isn't there a BES10 support line you can call? I seem to recall seeing that noted somewhere.
