Sync with Outlook

TntConnect offers the ability to synchronize contacts and tasks with Outlook. When married contacts go to Outlook, the wife will go as a separate contact if she has her own phone, email, or business address.

To learn about how to sync with Outlook, read this helpful FAQ on the TntConnect web site.

Sync with MailChimp

TntConnect offers a MailChimp sync feature. Due to the complex—and frequently changing—nature of this feature, read this FAQ on the TntConnect web site.

Is it possible to change the way Outlook's and TNT's fields are mapped to each other?  For example, if I wanted to allow Outlook to display husband's and wife's names, is that possible?

You can't change the way fields are mapped between TntMPD and Outlook.

Is there a way to export the contacts and, more importantly for me, the scheduled tasks and appointments to a format that I could use somewhere other than Outlook?  I'm thinking exporting into a CSV format at the minimum so I can import in to other calendar applications such as Google calendar.

Contacts: File | Export Current Group

Tasks/Appointments:  click "Export all Rows to Excel" button.

How do I syn with Outlook for Mac, or the default Mac Mail, Calendar & Contact applications?

Troy Wolbrink wrote re: Sync with Outlook

You can't.  Currently, Sync with Outlook is a PC-only feature.

How does tntmpd currently sync with Outlook?  Does it use the sync api?

TntMPD interacts with Outlook using it's Automation COM/OLE interface.

Can TntMPD be asked to sync the filed "assistant" in both Outlook and TntMPD?  I made a change ot the assistant in multiple contacts in TntMPD.  But when I synced with Outlook, those contacts showed no change and didn't pass on the information to Outlook.    (BTW, I'm putting data in this field because it will show up on my smart phone when I look up the contact.)  Maybe there is another field I can use that syncs?  (BTW, I'm finding this TntMPD data field in the menu, Contact > View Details > General tab under Outlook sub-heading.)

Good question.  Those 5 fields under the heading "Outlook" in [Contact > View Details] are no longer synced with Outlook.  They used to be synced with Outlook.  These 5 fields are going away in a future version of TntMPD.  I kept them around to allow people the chance to transition away from using them.

Hello,

in the past I synced my TntMPD with Outlook and then with MyPhoneExplorer from Outlook to my Android Smartphone.

Now I have a new Computer running Windows 7 64 bit. I'm not able to install my old MS-Office 97 anymore and by this I do not have Outlook anymore. Instead I'm using OpenOffice and Thunderbird.

Is there a way I could sync TntMPD without Outlook and without Google Contacts/Calendar to my Android Smartphone?

Thanks in advance

Matthias

Matthias, that is not currently available.  What if TntMPD could sync directly to Google Contacts/Calendar.  Would this be a solution for you?

Hello Troy,

I suppose I still would prefer to use Outlook: In the moment Google does not have my contacts/calendar entries at all (my personal privacy concerns...)

The hyperlink (tntmpd.com/.../outlook.htm) needs updating as it is a shortcut.

It forwards to "www.tntware.com/tntmpd/faq/mailchimp.htm" but the /tntmpd/ portion should of course be /tntconnect/.  :-)

I got to a "Page Not Found" when I clicked on FAQ but figured it out immediately and manually typed in the correction and read what I needed to know. Thanks for everyone helping update the Tnt Websites since the rebranding.

Is there a way I can do a lookup for all my contacts that are sync'd with Outlook?

Not currently.  :(  Great idea, though.

Currently the sync with mailchimp feature only recognizes contacts from mailchimp to bring to tnt.  It doesn't recognize any contacts in tnt to import to tnt,  Any ideas on why that is?  Thank you!

Matt, it sounds like you don't have any contacts in your email newsletter list.  This FAQ article explains how to manage this:  www.tntware.com/.../how-can-tntmpd-3-0-help-me-manage-my-paper-and-email-newsletters.aspx  TntConnect syncs your Email Newsletter List with MailChimp.

Hi Brittney, Make sure you have a database open.  Under the "File" menu, click on "Open".
