This SyncCell Quick Start guide is intended to
help you configure SyncCell with your mobile phone
device quickly and effortlessly. Within a matter
of minutes you'll be ready to start using SyncCell's
Patent Pending OneSync technology, which allows
you to synchronize your Outlook Calendar and Contacts
in one easy click of a button! OneSync provides
a simple, painless, and most importantly, flawless
synchronization of your Outlook Calendar and Contacts
with your mobile device each time, every time.
If you have not already installed SyncCell, please
refer to the installation and configuration documents:
Since these instructions are intended to be a
Quick Start guide, we'll focus on the more popular
configuration settings for synching Calendar events.
It is recommended that you print this Quick Start
guide before reviewing.
The first thing we want to do is confirm the SyncCell
has properly found your phone. On the main window
you should see your Phone Type, Phone Number and
Cellular Carrier listed to the right of the menu
Once you've confirmed that your phone
has been properly identified, go ahead and click
'Settings' from the menu buttons:
Clicking the 'Settings' button brings
up the 'Settings & Options' dialog box. Once
the dialog box appears on your screen, click the
'Calendar (Basic)' configuration tab at the top
of the 'Settings & Options' dialog box:
You'll notice that the 'Calendar
(Basic)' configuration tab is broken up into three
(1) Client Selection
(2) Date Range
(3) Reminder Settings
For the Quick Start guide we're
going to concern ourselves with the last two,
'Date Range' and 'Reminder Settings'.
Calendar Basic - Date Range. If you
take a look at the Date Range section you'll see
that SyncCell defaults to a history of one week
and a forwards of four weeks. What this means
is that when you run OneSync the application will
synchronize all Calendar events from the previous
week and all events up to four weeks in the future.
Go ahead and change this now if you'd like:
Calendar Basics - Reminder Settings. The
SyncCell default is that all Calendar events that
are synchronized with your mobile device will
play a reminder five minutes before the start
time. The Reminder Settings configuration section
allows you to change the default. You have three
(1) - Don't Set Reminders
- Chose this option if you don't want your mobile
device to inform you prior to an event's start
(2) - Set Reminder from Source - Chose
this option if you want the reminder time that
was set in Outlook to carry over to your mobile
device. This way you can have different reminder
intervals for each meeting.
(3) - Always Set Reminders - Chose this
option if you want your mobile device to remind
you at a set interval for each event. The default
is five minutes, but you can change this to the
interval of your choice.
Now let's click on the 'Calendar (Advanced)'
configuration tab at the top of the 'Settings
& Options' dialog box:
You'll notice that the 'Calendar
(Advanced)' configuration tab is broken up into
(1) Device's Event Title Format
(2) Advanced OneSync Settings
For the Quick Start guide we're going
to concern ourselves with the 'Device's Event Title
Calendar Advanced - Device's Event Title Format.
The 'Device's Event Title Format' section allows you
to configure how Calendar events are shown on your mobile
phone. A Calendar event title is made up of a Subject
and a Location. Due to the space limitations within
your mobile phone, you will not be able to see the entire
event title. Therefore you have two choices in formatting
(1) Chose to place the Subject before
the Location in the title or chose to place the
Location before the Subject. (SyncCell defaults
(2) Chose to maximize the space
for Subject or maximize the space for Location.
Refer to the 'Example Title Format'
boxes below your selections to see how your choices
will effect the title.
Once you have the 'Device's Event Title
Format' configured to your preference, go ahead and
click on the OK button to return to the main button
menu. You're now ready to run OneSync.
Click the OneSync button from the
main menu buttons.
Since this is the first time running
OneSync, the following informational message will
Click 'Yes' to close the informational
message and your Calendar
events will begin to synchronize with your mobile
device. SyncCell will show you a progress bar
as your events are synched.
Once all events are synchronized
with your phone, SyncCell will show you an action
summary window (individual results will vary):
That's it! OneSync will successfully
synchronize your Calendar events each time, every
time. And to make things even better, you don't
even have to open SyncCell in order to run OneSync!
That's right! All you have to do when you want
to quickly and effortlessly sync your Calendar
contacts to your mobile device is click the OneSync
icon on your Microsoft Outlook toolbar, or select
it from the Program Start menu! What could be
easier than that? (see option 6-a and 6-b below.)
Note: If you're using a USB
cable as the communication link between SyncCell
and your mobile phone, you will have to have the
phone connected before running OneSync. However,
if you're using Bluetooth as the communication
link you don't even have to take your phone out
of your pocket in order to sync!
Running OneSync from the Outlook Toolbar.
Locate the OneSync icon on your Outlook toolbar
and click. It's that easy!
Running OneSync from the Program Start Menu.
Go to your Start menu and then Programs - SyncCell
