If you are using CiraSync to sync Office 365 contact subfolders, they may not show up on your smartphone. This usually occurs on older iOS and Android devices. There are two solutions available for this problem:

  • Enabling the Mobile Exchange Connector
  • Enabling Native Sync

The following procedures shows how to enable Native Sync using the CiraSync Public Folder App for Office 365.

NOTE: The CiraSync Public Folder App for Office 365 is not a replacement for the CiraSync dashboard. The app does not sync contacts and calendars—it only populates the smartphone native address book with information from the source.
