Re: alert for Birthdays anniversaries ...

[ Edited ]

The standard BB Calender does not handle recurring B-Days and holidays well. To do the job I downloaded 2 apps from App World;

 

Date Reminder

 

Datepedia: Holidays and More

 

You have the manually enter all the B-days and Anniversaries in Date Reminder and Datepedia puts in all the Holidays automatically from several lists you can choose from.

In Datepedia youn can set a pop-up alert for a prior date and it puts the occation on your BB calender on the proper date. They will recurr every year without further input. Also from experience if you use Outlook there are no conflicts with Outlook sync. The occations all apprear in Outllok calender too.

Does the trick.

Ira, it seems to handle them quite well for me... reminders, recurring and all.

Re: alert for Birthdays anniversaries ...

I guess my problem cold have been with outlook and syncing with it. I would set the recurring items then get multiple duplications. The apps made it easier. Plus I can pull an annual list of occations to refer to.

Re: alert for Birthdays anniversaries ...

Yep, I've read of some users having the sync problems on birthdays with outlook... and there are work arounds for that too.

 

But what you've got sounds great.
