Importance of Syncing iPad and Outlook Calendar

You use Outlook because it is fast, effective, and the whole world supports it – it powers our mail and our appointments, and our businesses demand it. A synchronized life enables us to move seamlessly between devices – adding new appointments to your computer automatically updates your iPad.

With all of your appointments on all of your devices, you’re not fully dependent on any one device. So in the event that one of your devices fails, you simply use another. Conversely, there’s no repetition. Add or delete an appointment on your iPad and it automatically appears (or disappears) on all your other devices. A true time-saver since you don’t need to repeat the same process on each device. Two- way syncing between Outlook Calendar and your iPad also protects your data in the event a device is lost or stolen.

Solving Common Issues Syncing Outlook Calendar with iPad

When you are trying to sync your data from Outlook, especially Calendar, with your iOS tablet of any generation, following are some useful tips that could save you hours of troubleshooting:

Easy Setup. With Apple iCloud, you need to create a different Outlook folder and move your data to it, putting up with problems – mail and other things.  Then, when it gets to iPad, you’re left with no Tasks – only Reminders.

Convenient and Reliable. iCloud sync is usually reliable but sometimes contacts, calendar events, or other content doesn’t sync between all your devices. For example, you must be logged into iCloud using the same account on all your devices and ensure your devices are configured to set time and date automatically.

Syncing Outlook Calendar With iPad Through iCloud

Life is complicated and so is your calendar. If you’re looking for a solution for Microsoft Outlook iCloud sync, you will first have to download iCloud Control Panel for Windows from the Apple’s official web page.

After the installation you can set up synchronization. Choose which data you want to sync, for example you can sync Outlook Calendar with iCloud. You can synchronize data such as emails, contacts, calendars or tasks. Schedule the synchronization process and iCloud Control Panel for Windows will start synchronization automatically.

The first sync may take a while if you have a lot of Outlook contacts, appointments reminders and notes.

The AkrutoSync window on your PC shows sync progress. When you see the “success” status it means that sync has completed.
