Click “New connection” and select the type of cloud account. Regular cloud accounts supported in CopyTrans Contacts are iCloud, Gmail and Yahoo
Enter the account credentials and tick the cloud data you wish to access (Contacts, Notes, Reminders, …). Click “Add account”
Note for Yahoo! users:
If you fail to set up your Yahoo! account in CopyTrans Contacts and keep receiving the error message saying that your email or password are not correct:
…log in to your Yahoo! from the PC, right-click on your name at the top right and tap on Account Info:
…If the system suggests you to re-enter your password, do it, after which navigate to Account Security. Switch the toggle against “Allow apps that use less secure sign in” to the right position:
Now go back to CopyTrans Contacts and enter your credentials once again. Your Yahoo! account will be set up.
Connect to a custom CardDAV or CalDAV service
You can connect CopyTrans Contacts to custom cloud contacts, calendars, or reminders accounts in much the same way as described above. For the purpose, you need to enter the custom account details (i.e. username, password, server address) already existing on your iPhone for the respective CardDAV or CalDAV account.
Custom cloud accounts can be linked to your company or university server, or your personalized cloud server (for example an account hosted on ownCloud or Synology NAS).
Set up access to your custom account on your iOS device.
For iOS 11 users: Open the Settings app > Accounts & Passwords > Add Account > Other > Add CalDav Account.
For iOS 10 users: Open the Settings app > Contacts > Accounts > Add Account > Other > Add CardDAV account.
For iOS 9, 8, 7 users: Open the Settings app > Mail, Contacts, Calendar > Add Account > Other > Add CardDAV account.
Open CopyTrans Contacts. From the Cloud setup window in CopyTrans Contacts, click “New connection”, then select “Custom”:
Enter your account credentials including the server address. Check the needed boxes (i.e. Contacts, Calendars, Reminders) and click “Add account”
NOTE: The username, password and server address should correspond to the ones already set up on your iPhone.
