[Contacts] Android app not uploading to Windows

Post by littlebigman »

Hello,

After adding an item in Android's Contacts application and syncing with EPIM on WIndows, contacts are not found in the Windows app.

What am I doing wrong?

The Android EPIM app is 5.7.3 and the Windows app is 9.1.1 on Windows 7.

Thank you.

Edit: In Android: Settings > PC Sync > Synchronize contacts with: Changing EPIM to Phone solved the issue.

I'd like to know if this is the right solution, or it has unintended consequences.

But it's cumbersome to have to switch back and forth before adding an contact directly in EPIM or in Android's Contacts app (and remember to switch back).

It'd be simpler if EPIM could somehow sync both its own Contacts data and Android's without the user noticing.

Agree, this is something we were going to work on in one of the new versions of the app. Thanks!

Hello,

Is Android EPIM now able to sync contacts with both its database and with the phone's, or is it still under consideration?
