Use of off-line agendas can lead to synchronization issues if not used properly. Before your start to use the off-line agenda, you should read the Help section documentation for off-line Agendas in Oracle Calendar. For information on how to work with an off-line agenda in Mac OS X, please see our Macintosh documentation.
An off-line agenda can be created and used when it is not possible to be constantly connected to the Oracle Calendar system. Only one off-line agenda may be created, and it is not possible to change the settings, once created, without removing the agenda entirely.
To create an off-line agenda, select off-line in the Sign-In box.
Note: If you have not already created an off-line agenda, you will be prompted to do so now.
If you choose to create a new agenda, you will be prompted to provide information for the off-line agenda.
Note: It is not necessary to set a password for an off-line agenda. If you set one here, you will need to provide it every time you log into your off-line agenda.
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:
Reconcile 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 On-line 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.
