I'd quite like to be able to see my work calendar on my phone, but I don't want my work appointments in my personal diary. My employer has things set up so standard integration / synchronisation can be done. I also want to control reminders - I generally won't want any, but it may be handy in future.

Is there some kind of app or system that will let me see my work calendar (and maybe email) without it actually being in my Google calendar?

NB: I currently only use outlook on my windows 7 laptop, it's not on my phone at all, and I have no way of accessing email or calendar from my phone.

Scratch that as it does use the Planner app on the phone. Sorry.

Must be something out there to do this though.

Acompli could be interesting but there's almost no information about it. There's a video but I can't easily watch videos where I am. What's wrong with companies putting a description of their work up?

Touchdown is a paid app, but separate from the phone (also for contacts). Another benefit is that if your employer imposes a PIN requirement, Touchdown only enforces that on the app, not the phone.

Nine is even better if you want to have a paid app

It's unclear if these apps are integrating external data into your Android/Google calendar or providing a standalone app. I'll try watching the youtube video from home later thanks.

This would have to use standard protocols that talk to Exchange. My employer wouldn't change or add anything for this. People do have it on phones, but my understanding is the current system sync's stuff to the internal calendar. I could be wrong.

If your work account is being synced to your phone, it should show as a separate calendar within your calendar app. You can exclude individual calendars from showing in the calendar app and install any other calendar app and set it to just show your business calendar. I currently use Business Calendar Pro for this.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

From Touchdown description on the Play store: 'Corporate Data Separation: TouchDown keeps your corporate data separate from your personal data. Without TouchDown, your employer can actually flatten your phone to factory defaults. With TouchDown, they can only remove corporate data belonging to them, leaving behind your personal information.'

Thanks guys, a few good options there. I'll talk to my administrator and work out how to connect then try out the apps.

Chances are you can do it yourself - just need to copy the config from the existing Email account (assuming you know your password).

The way I connect right now is I hit the "Outlook" button on my task bar. I've never had to enter connection details, it's corporate and managed. Not even sure where to look in outlook.

On your phone? Or desktop?
