    Hi!

    I've set up google calendars to have my personal stuff instead of using corporate exchange. But I do rely on exchange to store and share events concerning my job.

    Calendar shows each end every event (gcal-s AND xChange) BUT I am not able to create an exchange event, only gcal and My Calendar and Outlook. Is there a workaround to get over this annoying "feature" and choose xChange also for newly created events?

    Thanks,

    Bal

    Hi, I'm using HTC Hero as busniess phone and experiencing the same problem as you are.

    My exchange synchronization allows me to get mail, calendar and contacts but I'm not able to create new events in my exchange calendar (one way sync).

    There are only google calendars available (and outlook + my calendar) in the calendar selection list, can someone please explain how to create and sync exchange events?

    Hi jamtobo!

    The conclusion is rather annoying because I thought that HTC had created a business phone with Hero. Not exactly. So the workaround I have found:

    Use an external/add-on calendar (for me it was Pure Calendar or Pure Grid Calendar). With it you can create a Quick Event with it's built-in tools. There one can select which calendar should be used. Exchange, gCal or PC...

    I hope it did help! :)

    Cheers,

    Bal

    First option when I create a calendar event allows me to chose Exchange?

    Within calendar settings I have my Gmail and Exchange selected only.

    I can also send meeting requests via my Exchange mail, its under settings and then more...

    I only use Exchange and I can easily create a calendar item and it immediately synchs with the server. I have no other calendar software. I just open the calendar, hit the + button and make sure the Calendar is set to Exchange. Perfect two way synchronisation.

    Ditto, no problem here creating Exchange events. It's the first option in the Calendar list.

    Do you think that the possibility to create exchange events i dependant on the exchange account?

    The event fetched from the exchange server is tagged with "exchange" and it has a unique color coding. Exchange is not available in the calendar list when I create a new event or in the calendar settings.

    This is really annoying guys, I thought that it would work out of the box...

    I am using HTC desire, have the same problem. Sync with exchange works fine, but I can't add new exchange event on the phone. It is strange becouse I can edit exchange calendar entries (synced from PC). Has anybody got an idea how to fix it?
