On startup, Oracle Calendar may ask if you want to create an off-line agenda. Selecting Yes will cause Oracle Calendar to download your agenda for use when not connected to the Oracle Calendar calendaring system. More details about off-line agendas can be found in the section Working with Off-line Agendas.
Working with Off-line Agendas
Note: Use of off-line agendas can lead to synchronization issues if not used properly. Before you start to use the off-line agenda, you should read the Help section on Off-line Agendas in Oracle Calendar to make sure you understand how to use this feature.
An off-line agenda is automatically created when you first connect to the Oracle Calendar system. You can use the off-line agenda to create new agenda items, as if you were working in a normal agenda. When you have completed your work in your Off-line agenda and try to connect to the Oracle Calendar system, you may receive the following prompt:
Update Agenda will attempt to reconcile any differences between your online and offline agendas. If there are conflicts that Oracle Calendar cannot resolve, you may need to resolve them manually.
Download online Agenda will replace whatever is in your off-line agenda with the agenda stored in the Oracle Calendar system. This is recommended if you have just created an Off-line agenda and wish to download a local copy, or simply want to replace your off-line agenda in its entirety.
You can also choose to update your Off-line and online agendas by selecting Download To Local File or Upload From Local File from the File menu. Downloading will update your off-line agenda, while Uploading will update the agenda stored on Oracle Calendar.
