Heres a little program I made which allows you to automatically create / update / delete appointments based on your anniversaries and birthdays set on your contacts, it uses its own group for the appointments "From Contact" so that it wont interfere with any other appointments you have, also the latest version has a function to view all your birthdays / anniversaries on one screen and sort by various things, you can get it here:

Download link at bottom of page

The main reason I made it is because I didnt want to have to sync with Exchange and back again every time i add / change a birthdate / anniversary

NOTE: This program required the Microsoft .NET CF 3.5 to be installed on your device, so if you dont already have it you will need it, there is a link on the page to download it.

Let me know what you think, its my first attempt at a Windows Mobile device application, i have been using this app on my own HTC Touch HD for some time and it works really well.

first thank you for this program, now for me everyting is working just fine, the only thing i can think off is if you can make it where we can change the status to free because everything right now is set to busy.

Thanks aerodynamic.

And to maniatico:

A new version is up : Version 1.8

* Appointments are now created with a Free status instead of busy
* There was a problem before where editing the appointments manually would cause an error (end date must be after start date) this has been fixed, but may required you to Remove and then Update the appointments through the program rather than just updating.

Download from same location:

Another new version is up, sorry for the successive updates but I wanted to fix and update a few things:

Version 1.9 - 16/09/2009
* Multi column sorting now supported in view (sorting by another column will not interfere with current sort order of items which are equal for that column)
* Option added to select status for birthdays and appointments
* Sometimes appointments would update when there was no need for them to be updated - fixed
* Bug where appointments could not be edited is now fixed for sure (please remove and update if you have this issue)
* Progress bar now shown when loading contacts for viewing of birthdays / anniversaries

Version history is now on website:

I have noticed there seems to be a bug in the HTC Touch HD (or possibly in WM6) where sounds, and vibrations wont work for reminders on appointments that are set to All Day events, for this reason sounds and vibrations dont work for appointments created by my program on this phone with WM6

Other people have confirmed this problem here:

http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/e...1-5496fa05be40

I am planning on putting an extra option under a new tab into the program which is called "Appointment Method", basically it will have two options, "All Day" and "Start of Day", all day will result in all day appointments (for those where the bug above dosnt affect them) and "Start of Day" will create the appointments at midnight and end at midnight on the same day (this way they show up at the start of the day only) which should allow the sounds and vibrations to work.

Actually I might add this option for both appointments without reminders and appointments with reminders.
