Re: "Woman Desktop" Questions

From: Beiks support

Q1. My wife and I have been inputing data into my pda and/or the woman desktop and they have been synching perfectly. Now we want to start synching one data set between my pda, my wifes pda and the woman desktop. In other words, if I enter in an event on my woman pda, the next time I sync it would be picked up by the desktop. The next time my wife sincs her pda we would like to pick u that event on her pda. I know that we can "transfer" data, but this doesn't accopmplish what we have in mind. Is this possible or will it be possible in the near future?

A1. It is certainly not possible at the moment; the Zen of Palm is that it is a personal device and meant for personal use and while there are enough enterprise applications by now, the Woman Calendar is naturally again in the strongly personal type of applications...hence the limited functionality. We can see the logic in your request and we will put it on disscussion. But given it is the first and so far only one, it will hardly easily win over the significant development efforts needed to implement it. Indeed, the general question of synchronizing more than two parties is quite complex and often requires rules that parties find out they are not very willing to obey. So, finally, the short answer is "not in the near future".

Q2. My wife would like to print of some of the data (charts, grafts, calendars etc) to take with her to her next doctors appointment. Is there a way from within Woman Desktop that I'm not seeing? If not, is this feature going to be added in the near future?

A2. The current release of Woman Desktop does not allow you to print the data. However, unlike the above question, this one is fairly common and we are glad to announce that a new version of Woman Desktop with this feature is already in the testing lab and should be released soon!
