Blackberry and Outlook Today Task Synch Problem

By mcoopersmith ·
Normally, on the Outlook (2003) Today screen, tasks that are marked completed are shown in grey strikeout until the next day when they fall off the screen. Only current and overdue tasks are shown.
When I mark a task completed on my Blackberry, the task is marked completed on Outlook and is greyed out on the Outlook Today screen, but it still appears as completed the following day. It never falls off of the list (even though it is marked as completed).
It doesn't make a difference where the task is created (Outlook or Blackberry). I tested this on multiple PC in the company and received the same result.
Any advice to solve this problem?

Blackberry and Outlook Today Task Synch Problem

by jcaron In reply to Blackberry and Outlook To ...

This is because the BB does not populate the Date Completed field in Outlook. You have to manually set the date in Outlook, Completed Tasks view is an easy was to see them, and they will not be displayed in Outlook Today.

Alternative BlackBerry Task Solution

by erik In reply to Blackberry and Outlook To ...

You could also try the Mentat free web service and Mentat
BlackBerry Client.

Tasks and Projects stay up to date automatically whether
changes are made on the BlackBerry (or iPhone or other
mobile device) or the site so you don't have to worry
about synching. The most you'll have to do to have an
instant update is refresh the page.

Mentat is also great for team collaboration and even lets
you Jott tasks with a voice call on the go. Try it out and
see if it works better for your needs.
