CmisSync

Dropbox-like sync for SharePoint!

CmisSync allows you to keep in sync with your company's SharePoint, and read/edit the documents even when offline:


Step 1

Install CmisSync.

Step 2

Run CmisSync.
After a few welcome screens, it will start running as an icon in the tray:

Right-click on the tray icon and select "Add a remote folder".

Step 3

A dialog appears. In the address field, copy-paste the URL of your SharePoint server, it is the web address you use to access SharePoint in your web browser:

Insert the https:// prefix if it did not get copied.
Then enter your SharePoint username/password and press "Continue".

If an error appears at this point, please:

  1. Ask your administrator to activate CMIS and retry. Please note that sub-sites also need to be activated individually.
  2. Ask your administrator for the CMIS URL, enter it in the Web address field, and retry.
  3. Don't hesitate to contact us if there is any problem.

Step 4

The next screen shows the SharePoint folders.
Choose the folder you want to sync (most likely inside "Documents").

That's all!
CmisSync will now sync SharePoint to your desktop, whenever you have a network connection.

CmisSync does two-way sync, which means you can modify/add files.
Should a conflict occur, a backup is made and you can handle it by choosing which version to keep.
