Overwriting data

Is there a way to overwrite handheld data with Outlook data and vice versa?  I can only find options for handling conflicts in the desktop software but not overwrite.

Re: Overwriting data

There is a way to do this but settings depend on the Version of Desktop Manager you use.

Re: Overwriting data

In 4.3 Got to Configure Sync and select the database you want to sync (Calendar, address Book, Memos, Tasks). Slick setup and go through wizard. Select The Outlook or which ever application you want to sync with. On the Next screen select one way Sync (which ever dirrection you want to transfer) select "Replace all data in the Target Application"

This will make it so when you do a Sync all information in the source Device will over write the data in the Target. 

 

If you want to do this for all applications repeat the steps.
