Try making a "floating appointment" in Datebk5. A floating appointment
is kind of like a todo. This will show up in J-Pilot with a circle
icon, like it does in DateBk5. You can check the circle, like you can
check-off a todo item. It will appear everyday until you check it off
in J-Pilot, or Datebk5. On the right side there are DateBk tags. If
you read the Datebk docs you can edit these by hand to change any Datebk
specific things that J-Pilot doesn't support. This is a stop-gap
(better than nothing).
On the left side there is a Cats button. You can put appointments in
categories and show any combination of categories at a time on the Palm
and J-Pilot. The categories have to be added by hand in the tags entry
or in the palm for now.
I think this is about all I support right now. I have some code for B&W
icons that I never added. If everyone wants more Datebk support from me
then email the author and ask him to give me a copy to test with.
