How do I share my calendars & contact lists after I’ve installed and synced to the ClearSync Server?
The ClearSync calendar and contact list sharing system is based on the premise that each person controls how and to who their personal information is shared with. With this in mind, all you need to do to get started with ClearSync is to follow the following 5 simple steps to share your calendar and contact list resources with other ClearSync users and get access to the resources they wish to share with you.
For more detailed instructions, click any of the Step # links; you can also see the ClearSync Quick Start Guide for complete step-by-step instructions.
Create / Publish and Share Resources
Step #1: Publish Your Resources
Use the Calendar Manager and Category Manager dialogs in the ClearSync applications on your handheld or desktop to designate which of your existing resources, such as your personal calendar and contact categories, and any new ClearSync only ones you create, that you would like to share with other people.
After synchronizing your published calendars and contact lists to the ClearSync Server, click the <Home> icon on the ClearSync Desktop Viewer toolbar to login directly to your My ClearSync Home page where you can set up private Sharing Groups for each group of people with whom you wish to share resources.
You do not need to create a Sharing Group if all the people you want to share resources with will be members of Sharing Groups created by one of them (or someone else, such as a central office administrator).
If you’re only going to be sharing with one other person, the two of you should agree which one of you will establish and administer your Sharing Group and invite the other one to join.
Step #3: Share Your Published Resources
From your list of published resources within each Sharing Group, select the calendars and contact lists that you want to share with that group of people.
Subscribe to Shared Resources
Step #4: Join Sharing Group
Join any Sharing Groupa you’ve been invited to by clicking the <Join Sharing Group> URL link in the invitation email sent to you by the Sharing Group Administrator and logging into your ClearSync Account.
Step #5: Subscribe to the Shared Resources
Within each of your Sharing Group, check the Subscribe box for each resource the other Sharing Group members have shared that want access to. When you synchronize to the Server, these resources will be downloaded to your ClearSync handheld and desktop applications.
And that’s all there is to it! From now on, every time you synchronize with the ClearSync Server, from your PC or your wireless-enabled PDA / smartphone, the changes you’ve made to your shared resources will get sent to the Server and you’ll get latest updates those you share have previously synced to the Server.
