This applies using Horde 5.2 (pulled to "7f6f416") in conjunction with
When I create a new entry in OL calendar this is syncronized to
webcalendar, but NOT the other way round..
So, when I move a entry in webcal; its never reflected back do OL;
they run out of sync. (date in "event_start" field from db
"kronolith_events" is updated!)
It seems every change in wecal is not synced to ActiveSync clients..
To resolve, I have to delete entry in OL(!!) and recreate it.
Suppose I've created a new entry in OL calendar (let's say
day0=2014-05-20 10:00:00 [date in "event_start" field from db
"kronolith_events" = "2014-05-20 10:00:00"]); its sync'ed to Horde webcal;
then I move this entry in OL to another time/day (let's say
day1=2014-05-20 11:00:00 [date in "event_start" field from db
"kronolith_events" = "2014-05-20 11:00:00"]) since I want to change it.
Nice, it's synced to webcal!
But, then I see I've moved it to the wrong day, and I move it again
(let's say day2=2014-05-20 12:00:00)..
From now on OL and webcal are going out of sync; in webcal the
entry is "fixed" on the first move day (day1); in OL it's on the new
This time [date in "event_start" field from db "kronolith_events" =
"2014-05-20 11:00:00"], so it's not updated to the new value..
No further changes to this event are possible, till deleting and
recreating a new event in OL.
So, I'm pretty sure it's a ActiveSync problem since DB is updated to
reflect the webcal entry times not the OL times.
OL is NOT complaining about problems/issues (all in sync and connected
in Outlook blue status line), probably the new DB values are not pushed
to ActiveSync clients.
Sorry, I know I test my systems in a harcore way, but with lots of
clients we can't just install without checking all of the features.
But I have to say, it's a GREAT product, really!
