3.4 Synchronizing Proxy Calendars

Added in 18.1.The Proxy option allows Proxy Calendars to be synchronized between mobile devices and GroupWise. This option is disabled by default. To enable Proxy Calendars:

  1. In the Mobility Admin console, go to Config > GroupWise.

  2. Select Proxy Calendars to enable synchronization.

  3. Click Save.

  4. Restart the Mobility Service:

    gms restart

When enabling Proxy Calendars, be aware of the following:

  • GroupWise 18 or later POAs are required for Proxy Calendars for Proxy users.

General Information
  • We recommend that you do not enable Proxy Calendars during the initial Mobility synchronization, but that you enable it during off peak hours as the data needs to be cached on the Mobility server and can increase the time to synchronize significantly.

  • The Proxy Calendar(s) shows up on your mobile device as a separate, selectable calendar.

  • GroupWise Proxy rights are enforced. Rights are enforced at the Mobility server and not on the device. For example, if a user doesn’t have delete rights, a device delete appears to work. However, on the next device sync the deleted item is restored.

  • Appointments, Reminder Notes, Alarms, and Private appointments sync to mobile devices depending on your proxy rights.

Known Limitations
  • Some Android devices aggregate all calendars into one calendar and you cannot select the calendars that are displayed.

  • Private appointments are synced to mobile devices even if you do not have proxy rights to private appointments. The private appointments do not show any information including subject, users, and body if you do not have proxy rights.
