Outl<->Android Sync creates 10+ calenders for each category

Post by faming »

I am using Outlook<->Android Sync for syncing Outlook calendar to Android phone.
I use a couple of categories for Outlook appointments. After sync these DO appear as "calendars to show" with the appropriate colour in the settings of the calendar app.
-> However each calendar is repeated tenfolds of times WITHOUT COLOUR in this "to show" list. I have to check them all in order to see all appointments. But they show WITHOUT the category colour.
This suggests a seperate calendar is created for EACH appointment (named after its category)! But the colour is maintained for any first category occurence only.
Not only do I have to check 100+ calendars to get them shown, but effectively there is no category/calender colour present.
I tried this from 2 different PC's with same result.

PC
1) Windows XP SP3 / Outlook 2003 / Outlook<->Android Sync 1.2*
2) Windows 7 Ultimate 64b / Outlook Professional Plus 2010 / Outlook<->Android Sync 1.2*
* settings: pst file, WiFi, 1-way: Outlook -> Android, Data: Calendar (only)

Android
ics 4.0.4 / Outlook<->Android Sync 1.3.4

Please help.

Thanks very much for the detailed description of the problem. We were able to reproduce it on some devices. Will try to fix ASAP and release a new version of the program. Please stay tuned. I'll post a message here when the new version is available.

BTW as a workaround solution you might want to use the 2-way sync option. In this case categories will not be duplicated.

Many thanks for your very quick response. Doing a 2-way sync indeed solved the problem.
Great program, great support!!
