Android Public Folder App for Office 365

We have recently released a Public Folder app for Android. The app allows you to View and Edit Calendars and Contact Folders.

After you launch the app on your smartphone, you will see the familiar Microsoft Office 365 login page.  The app does not get access to your password. After you logon to Office 365 and grant consent, the app gets a token from Windows Azure.

iPhone App to View a Public Folder?

By Vern Weitzman

CiraSync’s free app to view shared calendars and Public Folder contacts is now live.

View sync public folder contacts and calenders

We constantly tell our prospective customers that  they don't need an iPhone app to view public Folders -- our software syncs public folder contacts and public calendars to Outlook via the Exchange Server. There is no need for Desktop software or smartphone software.

Inexplicably, we have developed and published an iOS app to deliver exactly what we said wasn’t needed!

Confused yet?

CiraSync does a one way sync of Public Folder contacts and calendars to one or more Exchange Server mailboxes.

The “one way sync” is a big deal.  For example, everyone with a smartphone in your company can have “Key Customer” contacts in their address book.  However, what happens when someone needs to edit one of those contacts?

In the past, edits and additions to the public folder had to be done from a desktop running Outlook. With this new app,  you can directly edit public folders.

Install this app and gain immediate access to public folder contacts and calendars.

No credit cards or contracts are required!

14 Reasons You Need to sync the Office 365 GAL or Contact Folders to Smartphones

#1. Time usage and effectiveness.

Many employees consider their smartphone the most important technology they use throughout the day. You want to optimize both your time and your effectiveness using it. When you search for a person by their name, job title, or department, you can’t afford to get bogged down.
Didn’t this person leave the company last year?

#2. Accuracy (Avoid mistakes).

It’s not just about time management. You need to identify the correct person to call, and the correct number to contact them. Wrong numbers waste time and can be embarrassing.

#3 Reduce surprises.

It’s important to know who is calling or texting you. This helps you prioritize the incoming barrage.
