Syncing home and work calendars with iPhone


J

J

I want to be able to sync home and work Outlook calendars with the new iPhone
and be able to view them separately and together. I was able to do so, but
with loss of some funtionailty. Since I could not change the names of the
calendars in Outlook (which would have been the simplest way), I created a
subfolder for my home calendar, called it "home calendar," and copied all my
entries from my home Outlook calendar into it.

What I lose is that reminders do not work in sub calendars, and other things
like meeting invitations that are accepted default in tot he main calendar,
not any subfolder.

Does anyone have a better solution to my problem?

For Outlook 2003 and earlier, reminders fire only in the default folders. For
others you need a tool like this:
