Appointments and Notifications

Hello.

I'm working on a application that will sync Appointments from GroupWise to my internal system and I've hit 2 problems witch I'm unable to find any documentation about.

First, when I change a Appointment in the GroupWise client app, AFTER creating it, and setting the "Mark as Private" via right click menu, GroupWise is not sending a notification about the change, should I consider this a bug and report it?

Second, I'm unable to find information about the item regarding the; "Free", "Tentative", "Busy", "Out of office" value in the Appointment items received from a call to getItemsRequest( ... )

Tanks in advance

Re: Appointments and Notifications

I'm not sure I understand what you are asking.
By notification, do you mean an event?
None was planned for marking an item private
or unprivate. Is it something you need?

I'm not sure what you mean in the second request.
The only place that would document the values
would be the client documentation.

Re: Appointments and Notifications

For the first question:

I use SOAP, and I have a registered application that will receive notifications from GroupWise when a Appointment get's created, updated and deleted... The funny thing is, when looking at the Appointment object, there is a property telling me whether or not the Appointment is set as Private (boolean). But GroupWise does not notify me with a changed event when I set the Mark as Private flag in the Client but if I do update the time or some other property and save the Appointment, the private flag will be set on the Appointment item when retrieving it with the getItemsRequest(), this is to consider as a bug in my case.

For the second question, sorry about being unclear, the problem is that the hole problem feels a bit unclear in GroupWise:

The problem is that I can mark a Appointment as "Out Of Office" for ex. but when I read the Appointment after getting a notification, I'm unable to find what property the "Out Of Office" flag is assigned to, it just seems like the value is never sent when I call the getItemsRequest() method.

Re: Appointments and Notifications

We will take the marking private causing an event
under advisement.

I still don't understand the second question.
You can't mark an appointment for someone else
as Busy for example.

Can you send SOAP traces that identify the problem?

Re: Appointments and Notifications

First question:
Well, that's good to know, it's kind of important for us and our customers since we want to be able, or rather, the customers want to be able to mark an appointment as private and the data will be removed/ignored by our application if that private flag is set to true.

Second question:
It's not that I'm trying to set something for someone else, I only use the SOAP service to read data.

I've actually solved the problem, the property I was looking for was "acceptLevel". It seems like the WSDL contract I received isn't 100% VS.NET friendly.

Tanks for the help.
