Inside Mobile Design and User Experience

Thoughts on mobile and social business applications, design, and user experience, by Chris Reckling.

A few people have asked how to display both your regular Notes calendar and a personal calendar in the Traveler Android client. People who use iOS will note that the iOS Calendar does this - that's because it is built into the client and can synch multiple calendars into the same app. Therefore, when you synch your calendar with Traveler it can show side by side with other calendars that are synched to the iOS Calendar app. Android is a bit different in that there isn't a standard calendar across the many different devices that we could synch with. IBM has its own calendar app as part of Traveler on Android but it doesn't include external calendars on the client side.

There is hope, however! If you are on Notes 8.x then you know you can add calendars other than your own as overlays on your personal calendar. You can set this up in the Add Calendar dialog box. Simply check the box marked, "View this calendar offline or on a mobile device". The next time you synch your calendar, it will include all of the dates from the other calendar. You can add a Google calendar or use any iCal feed.
