Plaxo Gotcha’s

I’ve had my first nose around the calendar synchronisation between Outlook and Plaxo – unfortunately the news is not good. It seems that although it supports recurring appointments, it totally ignores exceptions. I tend to use these pretty extensively, for example for regular conference calls with customers, or for church services or events like Choir Practice. Like most recurring events, occasionally these things change – the customer may want to reschedule the call. Outlook can handle this easily – Plaxo doesn’t. Even worse, taking a look through after the clock change day, all my recurring events are apparently time-shifted by an hour… I suspect what I may be doing with my calendar will be using Plaxo to get a reasonably good copy, and then rebuild it by hand in iCal.
