How It Works - Wi-Fi Sync

CompanionLink will sync Zoho CRM with your iPhone. And we'll do it over-the-air using your local Wi-Fi network (like a home or office network). You get the benefits of over-the-air sync within the security of your Wi-Fi network.

CompanionLink installs on your PC and works together with a free CRM app for iPhone. The app is called DejaOffice and is available free from the App Store. In addition to sync functionality, DejaOffice gives you business-class contacts, calendar, tasks and memos on your iPhone.

Learn more about DejaOffice at www.dejaoffice.com

IMPORTANT: sync only works within your local Wi-Fi network. You cannot sync over the internet, using your phone's data plan, or when you are outside the range of your Wi-Fi network. Your device and PC running CompanionLink must be on the same local network. Learn how to validate your Wi-Fi connection.

How It Works - Sync via iTunes/Outlook

Apple does not allow CompanionLink to sync directly to the iPhone using a USB cable. Instead, CompanionLink will sync Zoho CRM contacts and calendar to Microsoft Outlook. Then, iTunes will sync this data to the iPhone from Outlook.

However, CompanionLink does not recommend this approach. It requires moving data through Microsoft Outlook and Apple iTunes, which can limit the data fields that sync from Zoho CRM. To sync data directly between Zoho CRM and iPhone, select another Sync Method option.

Data We Sync

CompanionLink will sync contact, calendar, and notes/memos into Microsoft Outlook, so that iTunes can sync this data with your iPhone. However, crucial data fields such as categories will not sync through iTunes. For optimal data integrity, we recommend selecting a different Sync Method option, such as local Wi-Fi sync.

What You Need

  • CompanionLink Express on your PC.
  • Zoho.
  • Microsoft Outlook 2003 or higher on your PC.
  • iTunes 7.3 or higher on your PC.

Supported versions of Zoho CRM

  • Works with all Zoho CRM accounts.
    *For CompanionLink to sync with Zoho, you must obtain a Zoho API key.

If you reach the limit, you will not be able to sync using CompanionLink for one day. This is a limitation imposed by Zoho, not CompanionLink.

Getting Started

  1. Install CompanionLink on your PC and configure it to sync Apple iPhone Thru Outlook.
  2. Configure iTunes to automatically sync when the iPhone is connected.
  3. Run the sync to Outlook from CompanionLink. When finished, connect your iPhone and iTunes will sync Outlook data to the iPhone.

Sync your PC tasks with Google Tasks

CompanionLink offers two options to sync tasks with Google:

  1. Tasks sync to Google Tasks. Your PC tasks sync to Google's native task list, however, Google currently does not sync tasks with any device.
  2. Tasks sync to Google Calendar. Your PC tasks sync to Google Calendar as untimed events. This allows your tasks to sync with your device via the calendar.

Both options are available in CompanionLink 5. If you rely heavily on tasks, we recommend using one of our other sync methods that syncs tasks directly with your device.

Wi-Fi Connection Validation

CompanionLink Wi-Fi sync works when communication is mediated through a local Wi-Fi hub. If either your PC or your Device is not connected to the same hub, then the software will not be able to Sync.

Steps to validate the connection:

1. Be sure your PC and your iPhone/iPad are connected to the Wi-Fi Router. (i.e. Wi-Fi is ON for the phone, and the PC is connected via Wi-Fi or cable to the same local router).

2. Open DejaOffice on the iPhone/iPad. Tap Settings, Sync, select CL Wi-Fi Sync. It will show a check mark. Hit DejaOffice "Home" to go to the main menu.

3. In DejaOffice, click on the "Sync" Icon. It will display a box with an IP Address. Write this down.

4. On your PC, open your web browser. Type in the IP Address in the search window followed by a colon ":" and the number 8090, then press Enter. For instance, for 192.168.0.48 you would type in: http://192.168.0.48:8090

5. On your PC Browser, you should see "DejaOffice Server is running".

This indicates that your PC and iPhone/iPad will be able to successfully connect via CL Wi-Fi Sync.

If you do not see "DejaOffice Server is running", run through the Tech Tips Guide then rerun the test above. Until that test is successful, CompanionLink Wi-Fi Sync will not be able to connect to your iPhone/iPad.
