Syncing with the Palm Pre 2 and webOS 2.0

Sync with the Palm Pre 2

Update: USB sync is now live for all webOS devices! Read about it here.

The recently released Palm Pre 2 ships with the latest version of the HP/Palm webOS operating system, webOS 2.0. Due to core changes in the underlying operating system, CompanionLink’s USB sync is currently not compatible with webOS 2.0 devices like the Palm Pre 2.

CompanionLink’s current recommendation is to sync the Palm Pre 2 via Google. CompanionLink syncs your PC data with any Google or Gmail account. Google then syncs automatically with the Palm Pre 2 over a wireless data connection. Two-way sync is fully supported.

CompanionLink plans to update our USB sync software for webOS devices in the near future to support webOS 2.0. Inquiries about compatibility with the Palm Pre 2 should be directed to support@companionlink.com.

How to sync the DROID Pro with Outlook

Sync the DROID Pro with Outlook

The DROID Pro, released today on Verizon, is a business-oriented Android device that is targeted squarely at the BlackBerry market. The DROID Pro features a physical keyboard tacked on to a portrait-oriented candybar form factor. The DROID Pro also features universal GSM and UMTS bands for global roaming. For a device that clearly caters to the business crowd, it lacks some crucial functionality –  there is no easy way to sync the DROID Pro with Outlook.

That’s where CompanionLink comes in. Like many Android phones, the DROID Pro will automatically sync with a Google account, and Google does provide a free calendar sync tool for Outlook. But what about contacts, tasks and notes? CompanionLink offers three ways to fully sync Outlook contacts, calendar, tasks and notes with the DROID Pro:

Direct USB Sync provides a fast and secure method to sync Outlook contacts, calendar, tasks and notes with the DROID Pro. This method ensures maximum data security because it does not use a cloud-based service to store or exchange data.

Local Wi-Fi Sync allows synchronizing Outlook contacts, calendar, tasks and notes to DROID Pro using a home or office Wi-Fi network. The PC and DROID Pro are connected to the same network, through which CompanionLink synchronizes data. This method offers a secure wireless sync with no monthly fees.

CL Secure Hosted Sync is a wireless subscription service ($9.95/month) that provides secure and automatic sync of all data types to the phone.  Data will sync automatically anywhere the DROID Pro has a wireless data connection.

CompanionLink’s sync software for DROID Pro works in tandem with an Android app called DejaOffice. DejaOffice is a robust suite of contacts, calendar, tasks and notes apps that support Outlook features such as color-coded categories, sort by company name, and task priorities. CompanionLink and DejaOffice provide a tightly integrated solution for managing Outlook data on the DROID Pro.

CompanionLink’s sync solutions for DROID Pro start at $39.95. More information and a 14-day free trial can be found at www.companionlink.com/droidpro

Tech Tip: How to sync multiple Outlook folders with your phone or Google account

Many users often call us asking how they can sync if they have data in more than one Outlook folder. Using the Category Manager feature in CompanionLink Professional, this can easily be accomplished. The reason we have to use the Category Manager is because most phones do not include support for multiple contact folders, and so instead we tag all the contacts from each folder with a different category. On most phones you can filter your contact list by category for easy separation (or at least view the category so you know what type of contact it is).

For example, say I have two folders in Outlook – Friends and Enemies – that I want to sync with a Google account (or a phone, the procedure is the same). Configure CompanionLink normally with your Google account settings. In the Outlook configuration settings, just choose one of the two folders we’ll be syncing with. When you’ve gone through the initial Outlook setup, hit the Category Manager button.

First, select the conduit you wish to modify (contacts, calendar, etc.), then select the Create New Category button. Name this category however you wish it to appear on the phone/Google account (I’m starting with “Friends”). Be careful when creating a category that you do not give it same name as an existing Outlook category, as this will cause trouble down the road. You will see your custom category listed under the conduit you’ve selected.

Now we have to point this category to the matching Outlook folder. Select your newly created category and tap Application Settings, then click Yes. In the popup window, select Outlook once more, and then you will be given a choice of Outlook folders to sync with. Select the Outlook folder that matches the category you’ve just created (Friends), then hit OK.

You should now be back at the Category Manager window. Tap Create New Category to create your second category (Enemies), then follow the above steps for each additional Outlook folder you wish to sync with. Once you’ve set up two or more categories, it should look something like this:

Hit OK, and you’re ready to sync! Go ahead and tap the Synchronize button to begin syncing with your phone/Google account. If you want to create a new contact from your phone or Google account, just make sure to apply the category that matches the Outlook folder you want them to appear in, and they will happily sync back to Outlook in the correct folder.

To sync with multiple Outlook folders, make sure you are using CompanionLink Professional (download a free trial). The category manager can be a bit tricky, especially if you are dealing with large amounts of data. If you need any help getting things set up, please contact our tech support team and we will be happy to assist.
