    Default ZCS 4.5.4 Mobile - No Multiple Calendar Sync?

    I'm on a Cingular HTC 8525 phone. Using the airwaves or using ActiveSync over USB to a windows box does not pull in details from any secondary or share-mounted calendars.

    My VIPs delegate their calendar to an assistant, but they want to be able to "hide" some appointments. We've told them to use "Calendar" for most items and create a "Personal" calendar with free/busy unchecked for personal items.

    If they could not sync a 2nd calendar another possible option could be to tag appointments as "private". Private appointments would not be visible to someone even if they have manager rights to my calendar. This would be a Zimbra enhancment, and I don't know how that would affect outlook clients.

    Perhaps the appointments from each calendar could be merged into the one calendar available on the mobile client. I don't know if each appointment has a UUID. If it did then the mobile client could successfully edit appointments on a second calendar even if it wasn't smart enough to create them.

    Where exactly is the limitation preventing the 2nd calender from syncing? Is it a limitation of the mobile Outlook client? A limitation of the Active Sync software? Zimbra?

    The limitation lies in that ActiveSync clients don't support sync with multiple calendar folders. There is no such a notion. In fact even for multiple email folder sync only WM devices support.

    There is an enhancement request ticket open to add support for multiple calendars on the server so that at least the client will show all of them. It is not clear which release will have that feature, but it doesn't sound like even that feature is what you want.

    I'm not sure what that means. Are you saying only Windows Mobile clients can sync more than one email folder and other clients (such as Palm) can sync only one?

    Do you mean multiplexing of the calendars on the server before presenting it to the sync client? I believe that would be a positive workaround for me given the limitations on the client side. Do you know the bugzilla #?

    Precisely. Palm, Nokia and WM Smartphones only sync Inbox. Only WM PocketPC can choose additional email folders to sync. Of course if you use a PocketPC, we do support multi folder sync.
