Installing SyncCell

Since these instructions are intended to be a Quick Start guide, we'll focus on the more popular configuration settings for synching Calendar events.

1. It is recommended that you print this Quick Start guide before reviewing.


2. 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 buttons:


3. Once you've confirmed that your phone has been properly identified, go ahead and click 'Settings' from the menu buttons:


4. 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 sections.

(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'.


4-a. 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:


4-b. 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 choices.

(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 time.

(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.


5. 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 two sections.

(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 Format' section.


5-a. 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 the title:

(1) Chose to place the Subject before the Location in the title or chose to place the Location before the Subject. (SyncCell defaults to Subject->Location.

(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.


6. Click the OneSync button from the main menu buttons.

Since this is the first time running OneSync, the following informational message will appear:

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!


6-a. Running OneSync from the Outlook Toolbar. Locate the OneSync icon on your Outlook toolbar and click. It's that easy!


6-b. Running OneSync from the Program Start Menu. Go to your Start menu and then Programs - SyncCell - OneSync.
