EPIM sync Outlook Notes

Post by Laurent C. »

Hi

I need to sync several private Notes folders from PC to the smartphone without the cloud
Nice, the no-cloud sync feature exists in EPIM Pro using WiFi : -)

The fact is EPIM allows only to sync with one Outlook PST file without other options for possible several Notes folders
It seems that one of the folders is randomly taken to be used as the folder to sync with EPIM
I did not succeed in syncing notes from 2 folders or to change the folder target : -|

Could you tell me how it is working inside EPIM as I have found no explanations in guides and forums ?

Anyway, bravo for this great piece of software so far :D

Regards

EPIM Pro 8.66.1 / Outlook Pro 2010

Hello,

could you please explain your goal with EPIM Notes? I understand you want to synchronize all your EPIM Notes to PST file?
if so, I believe you will find all your notes in "EPIM Notes" folder. If that's not the case, please make screenshots of what you see in "EPIM Notes" folder and your EPIM Notes module.
Maxim,

Hi Max

Thks for the reply and I well understand you need further explanations (I’m French speaking in American…)

I have a PST file with several notes folders : two for my testing of EPIM Pro functionalities in the previous picture with “EPIM Notes” & “EPIM Notes 2nd folder”

Here the content of these 2 folders in 2 pictures

EPIM Notes 2nd folder :

When I sync, it happens the folder “EPIM Notes” be copied to EPIM PC, but whatever I do in the second folder, it’s just not known to EPIM syncing

Here the content of EPIM PC with only “EPIM Notes” synced notes :

EPIM PC sync config :

It seems there is no way to select which folder to sync with ?!

Here a sample of selection in another tool on my PC I use for searching data inside Outlook where it is possible to pin the folders’ targets :

Thank you for detailed explanation.
I am afraid it won't be easy to reproduce. Can you create a new PST file and copy a few folders from your file to this new one (with some minor content). We would try to reproduce the issue on your file then. You can send the file or link to the file to ma@essentialpim...

Many thks Max

I'll prepare all of that

In the meantime, could you give me a link to the detailed EPIM-Outlook sync rules please ?
Or a dev note describing the behavior ?
I do not find it on your Web site.
In the EPIM tool, the inner help gives only five lines on the subject with no explanations of sync principles
I need to understand what happens when syncing multiple PST files with multiple Notes folders with multiple EPIM trees-nodes-leaves...

Re: EPIM sync Outlook Notes

Hi

Waiting your answer on that subject, I tried to sync different Notes folders on different Outlook PST files without success
I receive :!: exception errors in EPIM PC when trying to add a 2nd Outlook sync and my EPIM Android became unable to connect to the PC with :!: connection errors
And the notes were all mixed up between EPIM PC and the 2 PST...
Deleting the 2nd Outlook sync corrected the exception and connection errors altogether

:arrow: So, it seems EPIM does not work with more than 1 Outlook PST file and does not recognize Notes folders in that unique PST file

Is that right ?

Regards

Hello,

EPIM in principle works with multiple Outlook files, however, it is important to sync with them one by one and never simultaneously.
Regarding issue with Notes folder- we will be looking into the issue, but that will take time.

Hi Max
I'm going to make another topic about multiple PST files to make the management of your ongoing subjects easier and let this topic uniquely around the multiple Notes folders subject only
I perfectly understand that it can take a little time to try my PST sample file, especially as you have just released the major new version EPIM 9
I'm not questioning you at the right moment to be answered ordinarily... :wink:
I did not find something describing the Outlook folders sync, perhaps because I do not know the word to search for in the forum and help
I have read that some people ask for that, but the subjects were all ended without clear conclusion
I know imagine it's an old inquiry unless I really have a "bug" with my EPIM sync Notes...
Regards
