    How do I sync Outlook with Galaxy S7? 24th Apr 17 at 12:07 PM
    Hi all!
    I'm struggling to find a workaround to synchronize Outlook contacts, calendar and notes with my Samsung Galaxy S7.
    I tried to do that with using Smart Switch but this led to duplicating my entire addressbook, which costed me an hour of time on deleting the duplicates.
    Could anyone advice a workaround or any other way to sync Outlook with my Android phone?
    Thanks in advance.

    I don't use Outlook for that purpose, but have you tried adding your Outlook account in Settings - Cloud & Accounts - Accounts - Add account?

    When I add my GMail account it adds contacts, calender etc

    That's what I do and it works seamlessly.

    Yes, I do that but the thing is I want synchronization to be automatic. When I add new contacts I should sync it manually. So far I use a solution called Akruto and it works seamlessly.

    If you add your account as d123 says it's automatic. Or if you want you can turn Sync off and it will sync when turn it on.

    Hi Tamikas,
    I just found their Galaxy S8 guide and did exactly what they advice to do. But I still have a security certificate issue described in the video at 3:08

    Have you encountered the same promblem? Is it okay to just leave it like that?
