• Outlook XP/2003

Important Security Setting:

B. And click the Add button to add the address to your web site list
C. Click Close

Syncing Goals:
Because Microsoft Outlook is not designed to manage goals, when you synchronize your goals from MProWeb to Microsoft Outlook, they must be entered as Tasks. Create a Task folder in Microsoft Outlook to allow MProWeb to synchronize your goals. Your goals will be stored in a task folder named Goals. See Step 1 to create the task folder.

Step 1:

A. Open Microsoft Outlook
B. Create a new folder at the root of your outlook folders

F.  A recurring event in Outlook that never ends will show up initially in ManagePro 12 times, and then as time goes on, every time you sync, new records will be created if necessary, always 12 records into the future. It does not delete the items that have passed. Items in Outlook that have a specific ending date will have all entries synced over to MPRO even if there are more than 12.  If you are syncing over Recurring events from Outlook that were created in the past the first time you sync them over it will show the first 12 instances even though they occur in the past.  Just sync again and they will all be updated to show dates in the future.
