Due to the following issues, it is recommended that all exceptions
be created in the Meeting Maker client rather than on the device.
BlackBerry Phone or Windows Mobile 5 device users there exists a
possibility of an issue involving a recurring appointment that has an
exception on either the first or last instance. There are several
variables associated with this issue as well.
- If, from the
device, the first or last instance of the recurring appointment is
modified that instance may be deleted from the device. The event
displays correctly, however, in Meeting Maker. This does not occur
consistently, however, as the occurrence of it depends upon the order
in which the "add" (for the instance that was modified) and the
"update" (for the recurring series) are synchronized.
- If the
change synchronizes and does successfully display on the device it is
open to another irregularity. Should there be a change to either the
exception instance of the event or to the series in general, duplicates
of the instance or of the entire series will result.
NOTE: This no longer occurs after applying nlpim.exe hotfix v188.8.131.52.
issue is related to the issue noted above. After applying nlpim.exe
hotfix v184.108.40.206, the following issues exist. These issues also stem
from a change made to the first or last instance of a recurring meeting.
from a device, the first or last instance of a recurring meeting is
edited to create an exception both sides will synchronize correctly,
however, this sequence of events is possible:
- If a middle
instance is edited from the device, the first or last instance that was
initially changed is duplicated on the server (the exception and
- If the above issue occurs the series is open to a
second issue. If the series is changed from the server, the first or
last instance that was initially changed is duplicated on the device
(the exception and original).
For BlackBerry phone and
Windows Mobile 5 users there is an additional possibility. If, from a
device, the first or last instance of a recurring meeting is edited to
create an exception both sides will synchronize correctly. If the
series is changed from the server, however, the exception is deleted
from the device.
