In fact, there are a variety of settings where groups of people both with and without mobile phones use ClearSync to share each other’s calendars and contact lists (“resources”).
The most common scenario is where a central administrator without a handheld views and edits the resources of one or more handheld users.
To use ClearSync without a handheld:
- Select the ClearSync Desktop Viewer Only option when prompted by the ClearSync Installer. You can then use the ClearSync Desktop Viewer to share and synchronize calendars and contact lists with others by syncing directly to the Internet-based ClearSync Server. See the Desktop sections of the ClearSync Quick Start Guide for step-by-step instructions about this process.
IMPORTANT The ClearSync Desktop Viewer does not link directly with other desktop PIMs (Personal Information Managers) such as Palm Desktop, Microsoft Outlook, etc. Performing a HotSync operation with a handheld that has ClearSync installed on it is required for calendar and contacts data to be updated between ClearSync and any other desktop PIM.
