Best Practices for Calendars on Mobile Devices

Details

Many problems we encounter regarding calendar data is traced back to people using more than one device to maintain data on their calendar. Microsoft recommends the following:

  • Use mobile devices (iPhones and other smartphones, iPads and tablets) as calendar VIEWERS only.
  • Do not use mobile devices to add, change or delete items on your calendar, nor to respond to meeting requests. This is especially important if your account is not configured to use Exchange Activesync on your mobile device, if you are modifying a calendar for someone that you are a delegate for, or if your device has limited or no connectivity at the time you are making modifications.Make sure that any device that connects to your Calendar has all of the latest updates installed.
  • Maintain devices that connect to your calendar.  Make sure that any device that connects to your Calendar has all of the latest updates installed.
