Sync Outlook Calendar with Windows Phone

If you want to synchronize your Outlook Calendar data with your Windows Phone, you can do it automatically, privately and seamlessly with AkrutoSync software for Windows PCs. It also syncs Outlook Contacts, Notes and Tasks as it provides direct, two-way sync with Microsoft Outlook without using the cloud.

Windows Phone 8 Sync with Outlook

And yes, Outlook sync with Windows Phone 8 works. Have a different version? You can sync Outlook with Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows Phone 7. Akruto supports all compatible phones including Nokia Lumia, Samsung ATIV, Samsung Focus and others. When the Nokia phone is rebranded, you’ll be able to sync Microsoft Lumia with Outlook.

WP 8 comes with a new Wi-Fi prioritization feature. You can synchronize Outlook with Windows Phone 8 through your secure Wi-Fi connection. Another new feature is the ability to text replies to incoming calls. Because Akruto syncs with the phone’s own contact app, you’ll know who is calling if the person appears in your contacts.

Calendar gets a new look in WP 8.1 with new day, week and month views and lets you check the weather forecast. All of this works when you use Akruto to synchronize Windows Phone 8.1 with Outlook.

How Windows Phone Outlook Calendar Sync Works

One advantage Akruto has over other Outlook sync software is that your calendar appointments appear in your phone’s calendar. You don’t need to learn how to use another calendar app. Continue using the built-in Windows Phone calendar, like you always have. The same applies for Contacts. Outlook tasks synchronize and you can find the to-do items within the calendar app.

Other Outlook sync apps add a separate calendar app to your phone leaving you with two calendar apps. The one you’ve been using on your phone won’t be updated. Having two calendar apps can get confusing. Not so with AkrutoSync, because AkrutoSync can sync Windows Phone calendar that comes with the phone.

Now that you can text multiple recipients at the same time, using your WP 8 contacts makes this a breeze. Other sync apps that install their own apps may not work as seamlessly like Akruto does. After you install the software, Akruto syncs automatically, quietly, completely and effortlessly.

Akruto syncs all past, current and future calendar appointments and events with all the notes and details. Exceptions, regular, all-day and recurring appointments function as you would expect. You can create new appointments, plan meetings, check group schedules, change appointments and send meeting invitations as easily on your phone as you do on Outlook for Windows PC.

AkrutoSync can manage your calendar data for all recent and not-so-recent versions of Microsoft Outlook. It fully supports Outlook 2002, Outlook 2003, Outlook 2007, Outlook 2010, and Outlook 2013.

    What older, if any, OSes does AkrutoSync not work with?

    • Akruto Support November 24, 2014 at 4:18 pm

      We are committed to making sure AkrutoSync works with all newer OS versions as soon as they are available.

      As far as the old devices go, AkrutoSync works with Windows Mobile 6.5 (which is a predecessor of the Windows Phone OS), all Windows Phone 7 versions (WP 7, WP7.1, WP7.5, and WP7.8) and Windows Phone 8 (WP8 and WP8.1).

      We make sure AkrutoSync works with all Android versions from Android 2.3 Gingerbread to 5.0 Lollipop and everything in between, including KitKat (Android 4.0), Jelly Bean (Android 4.1–4.3.1), and Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). If you have anything older than 2.3, let us know how AkrutoSync works for you; if you need help, we’ll help you.

      We test with iPhone 3GS (running iOS 5) and newer, including the latest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

    AkrutoSync will also sync with Windows Mobile 6.1 professional although Akruto says there is no official support for this. Instead of setting up an account on the phone as described for Windows Phone you set it up in ActiveSync on the phone in just the same way; you can use the option to download the settings from the server, ie AkrutoSync on your PC..
