Events sync'd to iCal/iPhone lack alerts
ZCS 4.5.9, sync 4.5.1450
OS X 10.5.5
Any events created in Zimbra do get sync'd to iCal and thence to my iPhone, but they all lack alerts. I have looked for an option to set on either side but haven't found one.
Any advice? (We plan to upgrade to 5.x by year-end.)
iSync/iCal alert weirdnesses
When I create an entry in iCal, then sync it to Zimbra (using CalDAV on MacOSX 10.5.5), the alarm is in iCal and also syncs (*) to phones using iSync/Bluetooth. But the alarm settings are not in ZCS and are not propagated to other iCal instances.
It seems that while the ZCS format (in the .ics or CalDAV) does support notification information, it does accept it from iCal. The information as exported from ZCS to WebDAV also lacks the information that iCal will ring the bell, only pop up the message window, which is not really useful.
There should be either (1) an option to tell ZCS with which notification attributes an alarm should be exported or (2) the alarm attributes should be accepted from iCal and stored in ZCS.
(*): It did not always do so, at least not from a manually created calendar. But I was unable to reproduce the problem...
Alerts not syncing on CalDAV
I am also having this problem - any alerts that I create in iCal do not show up in Zimbra after the CalDAV sync. This is a HUGE problem - it makes my calendar virtually useless, since I rely on alerts from my smartphone (which syncs to Zimbra via ActiveExchange) to actually show up for meetings on time. Is there any planned fix to this???
