    Date event default

    When I enter an event on the Date module, my Palm IIIxe sets the duration of the meeting, etc. for one hour. Since I mostly use the Date to remind me of things, I'd rather have a default time of, say, 15 or 30 minutes.

    Is there some way to set this so I don't continually have to set the duration manually?

    Thanks!

    I have been trying to solve this problem also and I haven't been able to find anything useful. If you figure it out please email me at frankmcn@pacbell.net" and I'll do the same. Thanks

    Re: Date event default

    Are you using the default Databook that comes with the Palm? Have you ever looked at Datebk3 or Datebk4 from Pilmco software? It's an add-on to the Palm Datebook that adds all kinds of configurability. <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.pimlicosoftware.com/>http://www.pimlicosoftware.com/</A> I've been using it for a few years and really like the enhancements. And the money goes to a good cause, see the web page for more details (I have no financial interest in the company, it's just a great product).

    Re: Date event default

    Datebk 4 is an outstanding product which I've been using for a couple of years now. It can be configured in more ways than can be imagined - there's a discussion group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/pimlicodatebk/messages which will give you some idea of the incredible capabilities of the program.

    It now also works quite well with Address+, a replacement for the built-in Palm address book, which is similarly much more powerful than the built-in.

    Thank you for posting about Address +, I was going to look into that one. It's good to know it works with Datebk4 so well.
