Question about Palm Tungsten T5 - Multilingual Handheld

1 Answer

Synchronizing Outlook to my T5 but not my T5 to Outlook (without erasing any data on either device)

I use my T5 for to keep track of my professional and personal calendar. I would like to sync my Outlook calendar (my professional calendar) to my T5 (my personal calendar), but not have my personal calendar on my T5 sync with Outlook. When I attempt to use the Conduit controls to modify the synchronization, it either wipes out my Outlook calendar and replaces it with my personal calendar, or vice versa. I very much appreciate if someone could respond. I've searched online and in the community forum, and it seems other users are also looking for this answer. This function is the primary reason why I purchased the T5.

Re: Synchronizing Outlook to my T5 but not my T5 to...

A possible workaround: I agree that the current synchronising behaviour is not very helpful - especially as it is not very clearly documented - I nearly lost all of my personal calendar data completely! What I have done for now (and this may not be acceptable to you) is to allow Outlook Calendar to synchronise fully with my TE, but then mark all my personal appointments etc. as 'Private' (tick box in lower right hand corner of details). Tedious, I know, but hopefully will get easier as I go along... It is even possible to set up a 'filter' in Outlook so that the personal data is not displayed [Customise View: Filter / Advanced / Field: Sensitivity = Normal] All your personal calendar data on the Tungsten will now be marked as private as well, so if you want to hide any 'really' private records on there, you'll have to set Security to lock the handheld on power-off until you enter a password. Like you, I look forward to Palm resolving this issue by installing 1-way options on their conduits!

My Palm tungsten E2 hand held PDA is totally frozen and locked up


Best thing to do here is to remove any memory cards etc.. and do a hard reset - seems like soft reset will or has not worked...

Press and hold the power button - keep it pressed and gently press the reset button on the back of the handheld.
Wait for the Palm Powered logo to appear and release the power button.
You should get a message warning about erasing all data. Press up on your 5-way navigator to reset.

This will erase all data inlcuding user information from the device, but synchronizing should get it all back - but you will loose anything that was not recently sync'd

good luck

Want Microsoft Outlook to dominate - two computers


Update dominance in Palm Desktop app. Figured it out! Go to the Palm Desktop application. Click on HotSynch, and then Custom. On each of the four Outlook conduits, click "Change", and specify that desktop dominates, if desired.

Switch from outlook to palm desktop


Remember to change (HotSync, Custom) settings before you perform your sync or else you will get duplicate records as I did. Good luck. Support Knowledge Library Click here to go back Click here to print Solution ID: 25263 Switching between Outlook and Palm Desktop synchronization Depending on your device, you might be synchronizing with Outlook using the Palm™ Outlook Conduits, or PocketMirror conduits from Chapura (find out which). Both of these types of conduits are installed and activated when you run the CD-ROM that came with your device. What do you want to learn about? * Switching synchronization: Palm Outlook Conduits * Switching synchronization: PocketMirror Conduits * Synchronizing partially with Palm Desktop, partially with Outlook * Note about data transfer * Macintosh information * Multiple users on the same desktop computer Switching synchronization: Palm Outlook Conduits These instructions apply to the Palm Outlook Conduits that are included with handhelds released after late 2003. The Palm Desktop installer determines which conduits are activated during the installation process. If you want to switch synchronization from Palm Desktop to Outlook, or vice versa, you'll need the original CD-ROM that came with your handheld. 1. Insert the CD-ROM into your computer. A window should open, containing the contents of the CD-ROM. 2. From the Discover Your Handheld screen, select "Install Microsoft Outlook Conduits" or "Change synchronization method" (depending on which device you have) 3. Follow the instructions for switching synchroniztion from or to Palm Desktop or Outlook. 4. See our note about data transfer Remember: Some applications will continue to synchronize with Palm Desktop. Use Palm Desktop to manage applications such as Photos and VoiceMemo

Asks for password after Hotsync button pressed


Try looking at (from the main applications menu) Preferences, then Security. I have a T5, so the operating system is likely different, but there are two passwords there that can be enabled...password and quick unlock. I know if I push the hotsync button on my cable to sync before I unlock the T5, it will prompt me for a password. You can also try making sure you are logged in and have access to your Treo "before" hitting the hotsync button. On the T5, if I'm already on the T5 and hotsync I don't get prompted for a password. If this is totally off-base due to the differences in the T5 and Treo, I apologize for the confusion.

How do I transfer Palm m105 data files to MS Outlook


You supplied very little detail here on what you are starting with and what you hope to finish with. Are you synchronizing today and where does the data reside on your PC - in Palm Desktop? If you have all your data in the m105 and wish your Contacts, Calendar, Tasks and Memos to synchronize with your Outlook profile, then install the Desktop software that come with the m105. You will be given the option to synchronize with MS Outlook during the installation. Choose this. The data in your Outlook profile (root level folder only) will merge with the data inside the m105.
