Attachment on different PC (not visible)

Post by MarwanH »

Dear support,

I have added an attachment to a contact and wanted to check if the picture will be added on my other PC where Essential Pim Pro Business 11.2 is installed. The contact is showing but no attachment! Any help please? Its urgent!

Synchronization is made by Google, 2 way and all (contacts, notes etc...) updated every 1 minute


Thanks

Google Contacts doesn't support handling of attachments, therefore files attached to EPIM contacts cannot be synchronized through this particular service, unfortunately.

How can I upload contact attachments and have them accessible on multiple PC's ? These are pictures uploaded for each contact. (Not profile pictures)

Is there any other way?

Thanks

I'd of course recommend you to try EPIM Cloud.

For now, I dont have the budget for it.
Normaly, contacts are stored where? if not synchronized with Google ? For example the local calendar stores appointments and can be shared across multiple Pcs running Essential Pim Pro Business correct? Why arent we able to have attachments stored on local and viewed on different computers? :?

Contacts are stored in the EPIM database file, same way as calendars are stored. So with EPIM Pro Business you can access any info within EPIM from any PC that runs EPIM Pro Business. So here's how EPIM networking works within the same LAN: https://www.essentialpim.com/help/networking.htm and here's how you can sync with the DB which runs on the server being outside your local network: https://www.essentialpim.com/help/epim_server.htm
