Information Technology Services transitioned to K-State Zimbra Calendar on June 28, 2010. As part of the transition, Oracle Calendar will be decommissioned on July 1 this year. K-Staters with data still in Oracle Calendar have options to archive their data; instructions are available on the Moving Oracle Calendar data to Zimbra Calendar webpage.
A lot of folks have been using the application SyncJE to sync their BlackBerry with the K-State Oracle Calender system, with varying levels of success. A work-around for those experiencing issues is to check your K-State Oracle Calender from the BlackBerry web browser.
To do this, go to the kcalendar.ksu.edu address in the web browser and sign in with your K-State eID and password. The formatting is not perfect, but you’ll be able to see appointments for the day as well as past and future appointment information.
The online guide to syncing BlackBerry calendars with K-State’s Oracle calendar using SyncJE has been updated. It includes instructions on how to install and configure the SyncJE syncing software on a BlackBerry. K-Staters who have been having issues with calendar syncing on their BlackBerry should check that page to see if any of the changes impact them.
