welcome to the support forums.

 

you can use the PIM API to create a calendar entry.

the device calendar and outlook are usually synchronized automatically.

Thanks :smileyhappy:

I understand that the device and outlook are automatically synced. But I have a requirement to send these appointments to people's outlook directly and they do not have blackberry :smileyhappy:

 

Any inputs in this regards; much appreciated

i thought when you create them on your BB it syncs it to exchange which syncs in to their outlook.

otherwise you could use exchange webservices (i have an app that does that), but it's not something you can do without investing some time.
