We use the "Synchronize appointments from remote calendar" feature extensively to create calendars to our internal systems (project planning, work tracking, company events etc.), such that each user has:
1. Their personal calendar (default calendar)
2. Project plan calendar (synchronised from our PM system using ical)
3. Work tracking calendar (synchronised from our PM system using ical)
This enables each user to quickly merge any of calendars and have a visual representation of plans / actual work. So far this has been working really well. We also use Zimbra mobile to synchronise email, contacts and calendar onto the Nokia E61. Again, this has just worked - no problems there.
We have found that our users require multiple calendars to be merged and synced with their mobile device.
For example: When syncing, the personal calendar and the project plan calendar are synced to the mobile device as 'the calendar'.
Does anyone know if this is possible, workarounds or an upcoming feature? And would others find it useful to be able to do this?
I've searched Bugzilla and found a few enhancements that indicate this requirement. All of them have votes, so I am wondering which one to vote for!
Zimbra is an awesome product and little features like this (will) really put MS Exchange / Lotus Notes to shame.
