The lack of insight and software for Syncing iCloud to Outlook has bemused us for some time, but we've finally found an effortless and FREE way to do this with a wonderful piece of software called Sync for iCloud by Microsoft Partner company CodeTwo. We've been looking for a straightforward approach to syncing iCloud to Outlook (available as part of Microsoft 365) for ages, particularly iCloud contacts to Outlook, and this Outlook Addin does it so quickly we had to check to ensure that we weren't still looking at the iCloud list of contacts in Outlook (via iCloud for PC App) - nope they were in the native contact list in a matter of seconds!
Here's what you can do with Sync for iCloud
Sync Outlook folders with iCloud folders
The Sync for iCloud Microsoft Outlook add-in will let you automatically synchronize your Outlook contacts, calendars and tasks with your iCloud data file in Outlook, which will then sync those folders with iCloud and across your iPhone, iPad and other Apple® devices.
No need to save or move items to iCloud tree in Outlook anymore
Once you install iCloud Control Panel for Windows, a new tree of folders is added to Outlook, but your existing Outlook folders are somewhere else. CodeTwo Sync for iCloud will let you keep these folders in sync, so you can finally forget about jumping between the folders and manually copying items to iCloud and back.
One-way and two-way sync
- pick up one of the three sync methods for each of your folders. Sync from Outlook to iCloud, from iCloud to Outlook, or in both directions.
Syncing iCloud with Public Folders supported
- the program will also let you sync CodeTwo Public Folders with iCloud folders, which means that you can now share Outlook with other PCs and with your iPhone and iPad as well.
Automatically sync up your folders in real time
- Outlook folders are synced automatically and immediately in the background. Note! iCloud synchronization with your handhelds depends on iCloud performance and your internet connection speed.
Easy to install and use
- the add-in is seamless. Just install it on your PC and follow the wizard. You'll see how easy and quick it is.
