Again Notes

Post by Haldex »

My next issue, which I would like to see implemented in the EPIM environment, is the notes module. Within EPIM Desktop it is a flawless notes tool. You can build a tree structure and format the text to a reasonable extent.

But the big disadvantage today is that it is only available on the desktop. This means that notes remain useless on the go today where smartphones and tablets are the order of the day.

There is also no way to synchronize these notes with the note app on the Synology.
Or with Windows' Quick Notes, would also be good (although no tree structure can be mapped there).

It would be very desirable to be able to open this module, which is isolated on the Windows PC, to make it accessible on the iPhone and iPad.

Thanks very much for the suggestions, noted. So far you're able to access notes on Android devices and on the web if you sync with Google (Drive) or OneDrive services, for instance.

Ok. Onedrive, and then, how can I read the notes from EPIM?

You first need to create couple of notes in EPIM, then sync them with OneDrive, they'll all be accessible from the special EPIM app folder in the service. You'll be able to read and edit existing notes and create new ones then. Thanks!

Sorry, but Is this how it works with a Android Devices connection to the onedrive?
For my situation, i have iOS Devices!
Which synchronization must I choose? outlook.com?

Please excuse me but can anyone tell me how to synchronize my notes in EPIM to OneDrive. I did not understand admin's explanations.

I assume that this special folder in OneDrive is automatically created by the synchronization.

Which programme is then best suited to change or create the notes on OneDrive?

Can't anyone help me further? I just hope my question is not so stupid that there is no answer!

Admin,

I can confirm Haldex's confusion. In EPIM v11 RC1, there is no option to sync with OneDrive.

I am given sync choices for Google, Office 365, Exchange, IMAP/POP2 Account, Outlook.com, Cloud, EPIM Cloud, EPIM Server, OwnCloud, NextCloud, Android, iPhone/iPad, CalDAV, ToodleDo, CarDAV, and Outlook; nothing listed for OneDrive.

How is this syncing accomplished?

Please chose either of the "Office 365, Exchange" or "Otlook.com" options.

As already mentioned a few posts above, the login does not work with "outlook.com" nor with "Office 365/Exchange"! The 2F authorization on Microsoft is switched off.
After entering the email and password, the login always appears again.

Please excuse me, but I can't make a video of my desktop. However, I have described it very well under the topic of RC1

Here is the description:
With Outlook.com or Office 365 I can only create the synchronization to the extent, that I can enter the login data in the two appearing separate "Microsoft" windows (user and password) and then press "OK".
Then a small window briefly appears with the message "Please wait".
Now I should be able to continue with "Next", but there the login restarts with the two "Microsoft" login windows again.

I have this same issue with version 11. Any attempt to set up either outlook.com or office360 gets to the same point of authorisation (it does the two stage in my case) and then goes back to ask for it all again.
