Because AkrutoSync can also sync Outlook Calendars, Tasks and Notes you will be asked again what piece of Outlook data you want to sync with Lenovo Vibe. If you only want to sync contacts with your Lenovo Vibe, don’t change anything and press Save.
- To sync your Outlook Calendar, select Calendar. You may also select Tasks and Notes if you wish to sync these as well. Press Save.

Step 3: Begin Lenovo Vibe configuration

- Select Install, and the certificate will be installed.
Step 4: Continue PC configuration

Step 5: Complete configuration
Returning to your phone, follow the instructions for setting up an Exchange account. The account tells your Lenovo Vibe how to connect directly to your computer.
- Select Settings on Lenovo Vibe home screen.
- Scroll to Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
- Select Exchange.
- Phone will ask for an email address and password for Exchange – do not enter your actual email address. Enter the fake email address displayed in the AkrutoSync window (again, yours will likely be different than the one displayed here). Use the password you created earlier and entered into AkrutoSync on your PC. Select Next.
- Enable everything, including Mail (although AkrutoSync does not sync email, it still needs to be enabled). Leave other options at their default values and syncing begins.
- The first sync may take a while if you have a lot of Outlook contacts, appointments reminders and notes. Some Outlook contacts and reminders will appear on your phone even before the first sync is complete.
- The AkrutoSync window on your PC shows sync progress. When you see the “Success” status, the sync is complete.
Synchronize Outlook Tasks with Lenovo Vibe in 10 mouse clicks
Since not all Android devices come with an app to manage tasks, you have two choices. You can opt to use Tasks and Notes for MS Exchange or TouchDown to sync Outlook Tasks with Lenovo Vibe. AkrutoSync works with both apps. And neither uses a web-based service that requires a login or save your information in the cloud. Tasks and Notes for MS Exchange offers a fully functional 14-day trial. If you like it, the app costs only $4.99 for all your Android devices. TouchDown is free.
