I spent 3 hours in finding out how to synch my DTTG on Ipad + Iphone with my DT on my Mac - without any success. I also didn´t find a good document or video or entry here. It sounds super easy but I have no clue how to do it.
I set my Database “Informationen” in settings of DT on my iMac to sync with Dropbox. That worked.
Now on my Ipad/Iphone I choose Dropbox and the Save-Name to “Informationen”
But what else do I have to do in Order to see my database “Informationen” on my DTTG devices?
Noting is showing up in DTTG and I don´t see any other options.
I tried - but it´s not really coressponding to what I see on my iOS devices.
I am reading the Manual on page 38. But there is not really a step-by-step description just an explanation of all possible options.
I set dropbox - it authorized and the only extra information I was able to set is the Sync Store Name - which I set to “Informationen” which is the name of the database in DT on my iMac.
But for example there are no fields for username and password if they are needed.
I am really not a rooky - I work with IT for over 30 years - but this seams totally mysterious.
Do you have a link to a good step-by-step instruction? I would like to read it.
There is a field: “Verschlüsselung” - which means Encryption
So as I didn´t explicitly used encryption I left that field empty
But instead of an encryption key - it wanted my password to be set there.
So “Passwort” not “Verschlüsselung”
now it shows radio-buttons for my database “Informationen” - if I activate it - it asks for user and password - so I type in the infos I can see in DT on my iMac but it does not accept it (tried 5x).
Tried to delete username and password in DT iMac - but still asks me for it. Set a new username and password - but DTTG still doesn´t accept it.
Now I typed in an older password which I have noted down - and this got accepted.
So it seems to synch now.
Puh - that was not coherent with the manual at all.
I should have read the german manual if there is one.
But now it leads me to the next question - the database is over 30 GB and I only want to synch certain folders to my ipad/Iphone.
How would that work?
it seems that in DTTG now I get all documents withouth my folder structure if that is the case then the whole Idea of me having certain folders synched with my iOS devices is obsolete. I will first wait till it synched everything but if it really is not synching the folder structure from DT then I wonder how you all are using DTTG???
I guess I initially (many years ago) DID in fact encrypt the database - so that´s why the old password (which in this case was a encryption password not a login password) did work.
the thing with missing folders was my mistake - I was focusing on „Eingänge“ (Input) at the top - but at the bottom there is my database „Informationen“ and it has all the expected folder structures in it.
So everything seems to be working as I initially expected.
Still the manual did not help but confuse me a lot - but finally it worked - thanks a lot.
