I have a Sony Xperia phone, but I have all of my contacts in Outlook. How do I get my Outlook contacts into my Android phone through your software? Will I be able to add contacts on my phone and have them appear in Outlook and vice versa? Will changes also be synced? Thank you!July 5, 2016 at 6:06 am
Thank you for your interest in AkrutoSync. AkrutoSync will sync your contacts, calendars, tasks and notes between Outlook on your PC and your devices. The normal setup is AkrutoSync is installed on a computer where Outlook is running, and then multiple “devices” can be configured to connect to this one computer. The “device” can be a phone or a tablet. You can sync with as many supported devices (Android, Windows Phone, iOS (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch)) as you want.
AkrutoSync works in that everything that you have in Outlook will be copied to the phone on the first sync. When you set up your first sync, the data from Outlook will sync to the phone and now will be locked in the AkrutoSync account which will allow you to edit them on the phone or in Outlook. Nothing that already exists on the phone will sync back to Outlook on the first sync.
Yes, new contacts that you add on the phone will sync to Outlook (and vice versa) through AkrutoSync. Changes that you make to items that have synced to the phone and new items that you have added on the phone after configuring AkrutoSync will sync to Outlook. This is the same for changes and new items that you add/make in Outlook on the PC. v
You can try out the software by downloading the 7-day free trial here: https://www.akruto.com/get-akruto-sync/
Please feel free to contact us if you need any assistance.July 5, 2016 at 6:52 am
Great! Thanks for the info. I’ve now configured my Sony Xperia to sync, and sync is in progess! Does the free trial version of AkrutoSync have all of the same features in the paid version? If not, what features aren’t included in the free trial version?July 5, 2016 at 7:17 am
You’re welcome, Aleksandra. We’re glad to know that it is now working for you. The free trial version of AkrutoSync has all of the same features that the full version has. The only difference is that the free trial version can only be used for 7-days.
Feel free to contact us if you need more information.July 5, 2016 at 7:21 am
Sounds good. Sync just finished and I’ve tried adding new contacts and they’ve successfully synced to Outlook! I’ll continue testing the few days, and then purchase if all goes well. Thanks!March 2, 2018 at 4:40 pm
I am trying to configure Akruto to sync Outlook Contacts and Calendar (having previously done so for a long time with Windows 8.1 Phone, now no longer with us) with my new Sony Xperia XZ running Android8. However, your instructions do not mention Android8, nor does my Mobile have Microsoft Exchange (why should it?), nor does it list Kaspersky re Firewalls. So it seems that your instruction set is out of date and incomplete. Can you please help me with the missing bits. Thank you.March 2, 2018 at 6:34 pm
Regarding the Exchange account:
Even though you are creating an Exchange account on your phone, there is no Exchange Server involved – or any other kind of server. Your phone connects directly to your computer (either using your local Wi-Fi network FOR Sync over home network OR cellular/mobile data for Sync over the Internet). You are not creating an account with us, or with any other service. The Exchange account simply tells your phone how to find your own computer.
When adding the Exchange account in Android > Settings > use the Search and look for Accounts > Add Account > look for Microsoft Exchange [ActiveSync] or Google Exchange [red M icon].
