Also not getting everything synched up...

Hate to beat a dead horse, but I'm also not seeing everything sync up. The interesting thing is that different entries synch as I change the lengths of time going forward or back. But events that synched before don't seem to consistently synch again when I try a second time (despite settings to overwrite Google). I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the issue is resolved in 2.0.
 
I very much appreciate the ease of setup and ability to change mail files. Picking up proxy settings from IE is also great since I use a proxy configuration file on an office server to get out.
 
More detail in the display would be great so that I can see what's passing or failing, and fixing the scrollbar so that I can see all the way down would be helpful.
 
Beyond these basics, I would love to be able to synch to multiple calendars based on Category.
 
Thanks for working to fill a painful gap that will hopefully allow me to bridge my home and office!

Re: Also not getting everything synched up...

 When you change sync Timeframe, AweSync performs the same action which is performed by "Sync ALL" command from tray (notification) icon menu.
Most probably, not sync'ed events were changed exactly at the time when sync process was performing. This issue is fixed in 2.0
If you have any other issues, or additional details on this issue, please post them to Issue Tracking System

Stopped sync'ing when switched to new Google calendar

I created a new Google calendar for my events from Notes.  Since making the changes in AweSync none of my events will sync. Now I can't even switch back and sync with my mail Google calendar.

Re: Stopped sync'ing when switched to new Google calendar

Please create issue with detailed description in Issue Tracking System and upload full log there.

Please create an issue in Support system

Hi,

Thanks.

Issues after testing

Not everything on Lotus Notes Calendar is sync'n to Google and in some cases I am getting duplicates?
Tried to uninstall AweSync and reinstall based on testing and noticed that not everything is removed during uninstall
to include the actual Notes password initially set as well as my Google account info.
 
 

Re: Issues after testing

 Settings are stored in %APPDATA%\AweSync\settings.cfg.
Please create detailed desription of the problem in Issue Tracking System and attach full log.

Very excitied to find this product

Located via google calendar forum.
I echo other user/testers comments regarding initial setup.  Easy going!  BUT...not all of my calendar events are syncing.  I am trying to figure out what is different about the calendar events that are not showing up in google.
I am synching one way from LN to GC.  I have messed around with "Conflict Handling" and "Synchronization Period".
Should I do something in the "Troubleshooting (debug)"

Just Read about the issue in your FAQ

More than likelye the events that are not synching have some exception.  I got it now...eagerly await the GA version

Beta Test Feedback

Installs Smoothly and Interface look and functionality is simple
Wondering if way Notes options could detect users default (Local vs Server) during setup ?
     --> Example: I have Local and replicate to Server so I would use Local as my option
                             So when I make a change to my Local it does not update until I either force replication or wait for the scheduled time configured
But over all it was quite easy to get going.
 

 
 

Beta Test Feedback

  1. Download and install was easy
  2. AweSync detected my Lotus Notes settings and mail file
  3. Setup needs a "wizard" to prompt for:
    - Lotus password
    - Google calendar (I have many) and set BOTH the checkbox and drop down

Other thoughts:
Run as a service as a choice (it has tray icon now).
 
Overall, this is freaking great and works right out of the box!
Nicely done!

Setting Information not saved and repeating events

Hi,
Everything works well after I enter some settings, but when I shutdown my pc and restart the settings are no longer there (not all of them)  The notes password is no longer there and the Google information is not there.  Is there something I am missing and or can do?
Second issue is that I have several repeating meeting in notes and when the sync happens, it either updates google with the first instance or none at all.
Thanks for a great product,
 
Fredd

Re: Setting Information not saved and repeating events

Problem with shutdown is fixed and repeating events are sync'ed in version 2.0

Calendar Sync Errors

I have found that everything works great except when Lotus Notes custom calendars for repeating meetings are used and reschelduled meetings.  I selected that Lotus Notes overwrites any conflicts.  However custom meetings disappear from my calendar view.  Is there a setting to correct this?

Question

What does it mean "custom meetings"?

Setup info disappears when moving locations

When travelling from one facility to another, the set-up info diasppears.  It might be that our Notes installation uses multiple domain servers and the initial config is no longer working.  A nice feature would be to check the existing Notes config on start up and prompt the user if the setup info is not the same.

Installed today

Very quick and easy installation.  Initial reaction is it works well.  Would be nice if you could schedule an auto sync to sync calendars without activating application.
Interesed in what pricing will be along with others.  I to will probably have to pay for it myself.

Working well but show meeting participants

Just tried it today and got it working quickly.
It defaulted to the online server but I thought it might work better with the local database (local is working).
One issue is:  For meetings, me (my Gmail address) is the only one shown participating.  It would be helpful to list everyone...
Thanks for the trial.
But, like previously asked, what is the pricing going to be?  I will be paying for this myself, not my company, so it has to be very reasonable.

Great product

Great product, very easy to use.  My only suggestion is to allow for the program to be run by more than one person on a computer.  I had plans to run this on a terminal server along with a co-worker, but it seems like only one copy of the program can execute at once.  The terminal server is my best option because it is always on.

Room vs Location

Hey guys,
first of all, thanks for this wonderful product. Finally I'm able to see my business meetings on my private phone (only phone too btw ;)  )
One minor thing keeps me from being completely happy with it, though, and that's the fact that although I can see the Location of my meetings, I can't see the Room if one has been scheduled.
With room I mean one of a set of predefined locations (I would assume they are set by the IT-department) which can be chosen by the initiator of the meeting.
Adding the description of the "room" to the "where"-box in my Google Calendar (the same as happens with a "location" -> "where"-box) would be a really nice improvement imho.

Launch Awesynch

The Awesynch synchro with my Google calendar run very wonderfull !
It's possible when the autoruning the program directly in taskbar when Windows start  ?
It's possible select the start date for synchro ? For exemple, select object for today to end 2010 ?

Great

Just installed and sync with my GCal - sorry, no issues. Worked a dream.  Even copied repeating entries.  Using Notes 8.5.1Beta.

Google Calendar

Sorted, Doh !
Should have read support section - changed to use IE proxy settings and retrieved calendar OK.
Will check Google and advise.

Google Calendar

DL and setup is easy, however, when I try to retrieve my calendar, I get the error message "Cannot get list of Google calendars".
Any ideas ?

Multi user

Can you run more than one instance of this on a single computer? I would like to be able to sync several users at once.

New download / repeat calendar entries

Just downloaded Awesync and was able to sync my Notes and Google calendars in less than 5 min (awesome). I do, as well as others, want to know if the issue of not being able to sync calendar entries with repeat dates will be addressed in the production release. Other that this issue the app is working great for me at this point. Thanks.

First time:

So Awesync is my second try at Notes to Google calendar synching.  Companion Link is very good, except it does not handle repeating meetings with custom dates.  This accounts for many of my calendar entries.
First run of Awesync brought only 54 items to my google calendar.  Most of them appear to be birthdates/anniversaries.  There should be hundreds of entries.  What's up?
 
Also.  I am interested in estimated pricing.  I do not want to invest significant time helping you make this robust and find out it is priced for corporations.  My company will not support this and I will have to buy it myself.  So fifty bucks (US$) is my ceiling.

Dear Developer

How can I sync existing calendar entries? This does seem to work.

It doesn't work over proxy

Dear developer,
This is the great solution but I need an issue for you to resolve.
I cannt get thru Gmail calendar due to proxy server. Can you add proxy setting in your SW or shall it work with local nsf file?
Thanks,
Sanchai

Proxy !

Yes, it doesn't work over proxy. As Lotus Notes is mainly oriented for professional use and considering that most of companies access Internet over a proxy, AweSync must be connectable over a proxy.

This feature is planned to the future release...

which is coming soon!

Imposible to download

The download page is not working!
I've been looking for this since ever!
Please, if you could check what may be causing the problem, that would be nice, since there are no mirrors where to download awesync from.
 
Kind Regards!

No password - can't proceed to sync

I setup my Lotus Notes to log in without prompting for a password.  awesync however will not allow me to do a sync when there is no password.  It instead says "Specify the synchronization settings first".  I have now had to  put a password in for Lotus Notes and use that for AweSync as well.  Could you enable AweSync to proceed to setup even for users who do not choose to turn on a password for their Lotus Notes client please. The program works very well otherwise.  Keep up the good work.
 

now works without a Notes id password

I installed awesync a few days ago.
Awesync is working well even though I do not have a password on my Notes ID.
I am syncing with a calendar on a Notes server.

I have found AweSync to work exactly as I expected, and, when I didn't RTFM and got myself in a jam, the Tech support carefully walked me through the solution. Great product!
