How To Synchronize SharePoint 2013 Content with Outlook 2013


If you spend a lot of time in Microsoft Outlook, but also store documents and other information in SharePoint, you might want to try connecting your SharePoint content with Outlook. You can connect a SharePoint calendar, library, contact list, or other type of list with Outlook. This brings your SharePoint content into Outlook, where you can see it alongside your personal information. It also lets you search and edit the SharePoint content offline when you’re not connected to the network and then synchronize it back to SharePoint when you reconnect.
