I use Lotus Notes 8.5 client on my MacBook at work. Anyone knows how to synchronize Lotus Notes calendar and iCal?
This is the first step to have my lotus notes calendar entries on my iPhone. Or may be is there a way to do it directly?
I access to my Lotus notes client using password.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2)

    Yes please - I need to sync from Lotus \notes in a PC environment at work to iCal at home...

    Check out PocketMac from

    I used this software several years ago to sync Entourage with iSync before it had the ability to do that itself. Was a lifesaver at the time. I use Lotus Notes for work, but typically sync my Notes data directly to my mobile via Lotus Traveller for S60 (Nokia).

    Lotus Domino v8.5.1 also includes Microsoft's ActiveSync technology, which allows you to sync your iPhone directly with the Domino server and may also allow you to sync some of your desktop software to the server, although I've never tried that myself.

    Good Luck,

    Looks like, that GoBetween for Lotus Notes is not longer available.

    If you want to see your Lotus Notes Calendar AND your own iCal calendar on the iCal application on the iPhone, there is a solution.
    a) You must (or your company) have a server running Domino 8.5.X (preferably 8.5.2), also must have a software called Lotus Notes Traveller which as I understand makes it possible for putting the events on the iPhone, using the Active Sync tecnology from MS.

    b) The way it works is that the Domino server is configured by your system administrator, and then from the iPhone you access your company's specific web address where you download a "script"(the iphone side of the Traveler software) install the script and that's it.
    You can look at this page to have a general idea of the procedure (remember the specific address should be given to you by your Notes administrator)

    However I have not been able to put Lotus Notes Calendar on the iCal on my Mac.

    Also I used to be able to see my iCal Calendar on the Lotus Notes client on the Mac, but no longer works since Apple made changes to the Mobile me version of iCal

    It's possible to sync your Lotus calendar with Google or Yahoo! by PIM Syncer first and than sync it with your device by Google Sync:

    PIM Syncer can work right on Lotus Notes client, that is you can install it even you do not have admin privileges.  It can work on Mac, Linux or Windows too.

    This tool is:

    I use Awesync to sync with a Google account set up just for that purpose.  It is client based on the Notes side -- you desktop/laptop must be up and running.  I use it to sync contacts and calendar items with my Google account - which in turn syncs with my iCal on all my devices.

    I could not see any download for Mac OS, did I miss something?

    Andre - No you did not miss anything.  Awesync only runs on a PC Windows client.  I was forced to use the PC -- until recently I got a Mac - with Lotus Notes.  The only way to sync from your Mac is to use what the previous poster referred to -- PimSyncer.  The difference is that will run on a Mac client.  You would still sync via a Gmail account.


    I think Lotus Traveller would be the best solution.  My company has already been piloting it and will make it available with 6-9 months to the rest of us.

    Thanks, it works now fine for me with PIMSyncer

    Moreover, now PIM Syncer can synchronize with iCloud too.

    At work Lotus notes on PC, at home I Mac and MBP and Iphone.There i use Icloud.

    On the Iphone the company installed Lotus Notes traveller and sync is ok but sync with the home products ( Mac's in Icloud) is not working at all. Do i understand it correct that this problem is solved by installing PIM Syncer? but system requires lotus Notes according their site. Is it really a must to install Lotus Notes on Imac and MBP to solve my problem?

  • andrepeternell Level 1 Level 1

    Yes, you must install the Notes client, because the PIMSyncer ist just another Notes file (.nsf) with special agents and forms to configure them.


    It may be also installed on the Domino Server, but for this, the company you work for would have to approve the agents to run on the server.
