    Default Outlook Notes Sync

    What is the best way to sync Outlook Notes (Activesync) to ios?

    I want to communicate procedures to staff and ensure they have them wherever they are - no excuses. I'm tired of answering the same questions over and over!

    Sorry if this is answered elsewhere.

    Something like Google Groups for Business or one of the Google Apps for Business feature may be best suited for what you're trying to do.

    We use Outlook and Activesync, so it would be easiest if staff could simply copy procedures to Outlook Notes and have them sync to phones. Surely there is a way to do this?

    Not thru activesync I'm afraid, not that I have seen anyways. I know you can do it if you use itunes as a conduit, but that seems pretty heavy handed for what your trying to do. I'd look at evernote or something designed to do this.

    This....this frustrates me to no end.

    Our work phones were swapped out from blackberries to iPhone 5's a couple months ago (which also led to me getting converted back to iOS), but I sorely...SORELY miss access to my Outlook notes. We use a Zenprise/Activesync server for syncing up our email.

    I don't know if Activesync is at fault of iOS for no notes on iPhone. I also was running Touchdown via the same Zenprise server on my personal Android phone before it got shut down, and I had access to Notes via it.

    If it is iOS's fault (again, not completely sure), then there would be no excuse to not include it in iOS 7. No excuse for not being able to access in the year 2013.

    Also, can't set out of office notifications either. /sigh

    According to The ActiveSync Wiki,

    ActiveSync does not support all features of Outlook. For instance, contacts grouped into subfolders are not transferred. Only the contacts which are not in a subfolder are synchronized. In case of Exchange Server, only emails, calendar, contacts and tasks may be synchronized.

    The Successor to ActiveSync

    Windows Mobile Device Center is a synchronization software program developed by Microsoft, and the successor to ActiveSync. It is designed to synchronize various content including music, video, contacts, calendar events, web browser favorites, and other files between Windows Mobile devices and the Microsoft Windows operating system.

    The fault 'may' lie with your company for switching out the devices and with Microsoft.
