4747 Troost Ave., Kansas City MO map...

Description:

In our brave new cloud-supported, multi-device world, we been told that we can access our data from anywhere at any time. But the experience is a bit different than the promise – why are my contacts different on my phone from my laptop? If I send e-mail from my phone, does it end up in the SENT folder on my computer? How do I edit the spreadsheet on my tablet and see those changes on my desktop?

How do you keep e-mail, calendars, contacts and files correctly synced between all of the devices used to access that data?

Keeping your world synced properly between devices requires some planning, setup and choices. In this workshop we will explore the various software, tools and tricks that do the best job of keeping your world in synch. We will also describe the best ways to share and synch data with other people so that your family can use the one calendar and your project group can work on the one set of important documents (and vice versa!)

This workshop will be taught by Doug Allen, President of Allen’s Consulting. Lunch will be provided.
