Chapter 4. Calendar > Marking Events Private

Marking Events Private

In this era of identity theft, it's even more important to keep sensitive information (even a friend's phone number from a Phone Lookup) close to the vest. (It's also useful for events such as “Buy diamond ring.”)

When you mark Calendar events as private, their appearance depends on the state of the Current Privacy option in the Palm OS's Security application. If you've specified an alarm for a hidden private record, a Reminder screen will still appear when scheduled.

To mark events private

1.
Select an event and tap the Details button.

2.
In the Event Details dialog box, mark the Private checkbox (Figure 4.45a). If the Show/Hide Private Records setting is switched to Show, you will receive a warning dialog about how to hide private records after you tap OK (Figure 4.45b).

Figure 4.45a. Tap the Private check-box to keep an event safe from curious onlookers.


Figure 4.45b. If the Current Privacy setting in the Security application is set to Show Records, you are reminded that the event is not yet hidden.


To change the security setting

1.
Choose Security from the Options menu, write -H, or tap the lock icon from the command bar. The Change Security dialog box appears.

2.
From the Current Privacy popup menu, choose Show Records, Mask Records, or Hide Records (Figure 4.46). This changes the security setting in all applications on your handheld.

Figure 4.46. Under Palm OS 3.5 and later, changing the security setting alters it in every application.


✓ Tip

  • To easily read a masked record, tap it and enter your password. When finished, it becomes masked again.
