Recurring meeting on OWA but not iPhone

    Question

  • I have a user who created a recurring, weekly, meeting with approx. 100 invitees.  The meeting appears on his Outlook 2010 as well as OWA but not on his iPhone.  Other appointments and meetings appear on his iPhone. 

    Can anyone offer any ideas as to what this may be?

  • The iphone has known issues with reoccurring appointments, although not officially. If you can see the appointments in OWA and Outlook, it comes down to a device error. iphones especially seems to have issues with reoccurring appointments with no end date. Creating an end date can sometimes alleviate the issue.

    A quick google search for "iphone reoccurring appointments", or this apple support thread http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1608108 will verify that many people experience issues with reoccuring appointments on the iphone.

    The advice I give to my clients is to only use the iphone for viewing calendar appointments, not creating or accepting invites. This seems to alleviate most the issues.

    I hope that helps.
