    When Syncing Notes, Can it handle Subfolder as well?

    • Akruto Support November 22, 2016 at 3:20 pm

      AkrutoSync can sync one folder of each type (one calendar, contacts, tasks, and notes folder). You can choose to sync a subfolder, instead of the main folder as long as it’s just one folder of each type.
