Handheld Use of the Program

This software may be run from any handheld device that has a wireless Internet connection to your office network or home PC. This allows for considerably more power and flexibility than is provided by the "synchronizing" calendar built into your PDA. You see, if you're using a database that has been merely synchronized to your PDA, you cannot be sure, as you go through the day, whether the "master" schedule back at the office has remained unchanged. In all likelihood, it has not. Can you, therefore, safely assume that you can make new appointments that don't conflict with others already set by other users elsewhere? Remember, synchronized databases are OLD databases.

You won't have a problem with outdated information if you use a scheduler on your PDA that directly accesses the data at your office, just as if you were sitting at your office workstation. And that's exactly what you can do with this software.

Many handheld computers are provided with "terminal" programs that allow you link to your office network and take control of your desktop PC. Once you establish a wireless link, you will be able to run Integra Computing's software in a special reduced-display mode that will exactly fit the dimensions of your specific PDA's tiny screen. Following are examples of this software being run with different screen dimensions. Regardless of which size you designate, the software allows you to use its Calendar, Log, Phonebook, Projects, and Perpetual Memo. You may also conduct simple searches through the database. And, as with the program running in its normal mode on a desktop PC, anyone using the software on any linked PDA can quickly view anybody's (or everybody's) schedule.

The following set of images are of the software being run on a screen 250 x 250 pixels in size. The first shows the program with small calendars on the left, and the events of the highlighted day on the right. The second view shows what happens when you click on an event to see its full detail. The third shows an alternate view that does not include the small calendars on the left. The small calendars, by the way, offer a way to move quickly to any date (the arrow keys above the calendars offering an alternate method). In fact, double-clicking on a date will begin the process of creating a new event for that date.
