OggSync works in the following configurations:
Most any configuration should work, however you must avoid sync loops such as this:
Once you’ve downloaded OggSync free trial, it will appear in your Outlook toolbar:
Choose “Configure Sync” and a window will appear which looks like this:
It may or may not have your Outlook Calendars Listed, if it does not use the “Add Folder” to add the calendar to the list.
OggSync can sync:
- Private Calendars
- Public Calendars
- Exchange Public Calendars
- Other Calendars
Once in the list, you can choose a simple sync mode, or opt to change to advanced sync mode. Generally you only want advanced if you are syncing multiple Google calendars to a single Outlook calendar.
If you are upgrading OggSync from a prior version, first uninstall the older version in the Control Panel ~ Uninstall Programs window.
If you were a prior user of OggSync, installing version 10 will reset your free trial, your previous license should transfer automatically assuming you are using the same email address, if not, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
