    Categories - Outlooks 'tasks' and The Palms 'todolist'

    How can I set categories and have them sync properly?

    Currently if I set a category on the palm, when I sync to Outlook up comes up with NO category.

    Similarly the same thing happens when I set a category in Outlook and sync to the palm...it comes up as unfiled.

    Sure would like to make better use of this feature, but not if it ends up being on monsterous list.

    I need to be able to break out personal from work and then categorize the different departments of work that I oversee.

    Will stepping up to PocketMirror professional help? Key Contacts?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    lol Jeff... if I had seen your thread yesterday I would've responded... I must've been busy shoveling!

    I never got the categories to sync either using the included Pocket Mirror software. What did they tell you that fixed it? I always wondered why it didn't work, but never took the time to mess with it.

    I don't have that problem anymore because I got Key Contacts... which is awesome

    I'm glad you got it figured out!

    No Problem Robert. I figured once you finished shoveling and finding out your 7135 was delayed, you'd help figure it out for me.

    Here is what I got from Chapura support (if anyone cares):

    To sync your categories you must change your category mapping. To change your category option:

    1. Open the PocketMirror Settings
    (Start/Programs/PocketMirror/PocketMirror Settings)
    2. Double-click your username
    3. Double-click on the conduit you want to change (example: Outlook
    Contacts)
    4. Choose the topic Category/folders from topics list on left
    5. Select the map to Outlook's category option.
    6. When prompted, select as they appear in Outlook or the handheld
    (Whichever contains the categories).
    7. Then click OK/OK/Close. Then HotSync.

    I guess I should download the KeyContacts trail and see what it has to offer.

    BTW---It was 84 on Saturday here.

    lol... you lousy bastage! :BigKnife:

    You were probably outside in a bathing suit sipping iced-tea while I was shoveling snow drifts that were as tall as me!

    Thanks for the Pocket Mirror tips... I never did try all of that. Definitely give Key Contacts a look... they have a really good overview of the features at Chapura's site too.
