I have been struggling with disabling a feature of Outlook 2013 calendar option, "working elsewhere".  Calendar entries with this setting does not sync with smartphones, specifically Blackberry, thereby making people miss appointments.

I will appreciate it if you can help me find a fix for this problem.

Regards.

Hello Smith,

Sorry for the delay, I was on vacation the past few days.  Below please find the error messages we are getting from Outlook.

Synchronization with your BlackBerry failed for 2 items.
The following items couldn't be sent to your mobile phone. They haven't been deleted. You should be able to access them using either Outlook or Outlook Web App.
 
       Item Folder:      Calendar
       Item Type:      IPM.Appointment
       Item Created:      9/26/2013 6:41:25 PM
       Item Subject:      
       Item Folder:      Calendar
       Item Type:      IPM.Appointment
       Item Created:      7/4/2013 3:57:01 AM
       Item Subject:      


Thanks.

Currently appointments with that status are not synchronized with smart phones as of late January, 2015. Maybe someday. Meantime, perhaps a third party mail client like Touchdown will support it.
