Sync to iphone - recurring events on wrong date

Post by mcnash » Mon Feb 16, 2015 12:25 pm

I'm having a problem syncing from desktop to iphone: I have a lot of recurring events - e.g. 1st Sunday of every month.

When I sync to iphone, most are repeated on the date of the first entry (e.g. 7th) not the day (Sunday)
So event first entered on Sun 7th Dec is repeated, not on Sun 4th Jan and Sun 1st Feb, but on Wed 7th Jan and Sat 7th Feb.

Some aren't being repeated at all.

Any suggestions please?

I'm using an iphone 3gs iOS 6.1.6
EsssentialPim for iOS v 2.7.12
Windows 7 32-bit
EssentialPIM Pro 6.05

Thanks

Has anyone got a solution to this, please? Or is it a known issue that is being addressed? It's really frustrating - makes epim almost unusable on my iphone. :(

I find it hard to believe that there has been NO RESPONSE from the support group on this for ONE MONTH. Have been exceptionally pleased with EssentialPIM for many years and find this unusual. Perhaps lost in the shuffle or I missed something.
Thank You

Hello Max
On a chance I tried the test again with the 6.06 beta knowing it was primarily for the google problem. Got the same problem results as b4 with the 6.05 on 2/16/2015. Appears to me that the fix for this didn't make it into the 6.06 beta.
Thanks

Yes, the fix is quite complicated, and will make it to 6.5 earliest. It was too risky to fix it in 6.06
