Task due dates changing during synchronization

I have several tasks with a "none" due date. After synching with Outlook 2007, some but not all of these tasks acquire bizarre new due dates such as 6/3/2826 or 11/14/2432.  How can i get this to stop? Thanks.

Re: Task due dates changing during synchronization

You need to add the due date to the task, after this you are fine.

Re: Task due dates changing during synchronization

Thanks, but I am still curious. Seems that if i had ten tasks without a date, all ten would get assigned these random dates in the far future. But that's not the case. Just the a couple are moved to weird times. Others stay as "no due date" and I don't think it's always the same ones that are changed (but i am not 100% sure.)   

 

Is there a setting a can change in Tasks that would accept "none" as a date? I've had my life organized this way for quite a while when using a treo and I'd love to keep the conventions.

Re: Task due dates changing during synchronization

Same here...it's a GTD thing. Maybe I'll see what they have to say over at the GTD forums instead.

Re: Task due dates changing during synchronization

I have the same problem with Outlook 2007 to BlackBerry sync of To-Do's...

 

Some (but not all) of my BB Tasks' Due Dates of "None"  change to weird dates way out in the future, such as 6/19/2562 or 2/8/2561 in Outlook

 

Anybody have any ideas to fix this?

Thanks,

Re: Task due dates changing during synchronization

This workaround I found here seems to work OK:

http://www.blackberryforums.com/general-8300-series-discussion-curve/171798-8330-outlook-tasks-creat...

The problem seems to stem from the fact that BlackBerry tasks don't have a "start date", while Outlook does.

 

Step-by-step, here's what I did:

From the BB Desktop Manager, I selected the "Synchronization" button at the upper right.

In the resulting Intellisync Select Device application screen, I selected the "Advanced" button at the lower right.

Under the "Tasks" tab, of the resulting "Advanced" screen, I selected the "Map Fields" button at the lower right.

I selected the double-ended arrow for the "Start Date" field to toggle it off.

I select "OK" a few times to save the revised setting.

 

I haven't had the crazy date problem since. Smiley Happy

Don't you just hate it when no one says Thanks! 

 

Had me baffled.

 

Thanks for the tip
