Our Online Sync service provides continuous online backup and keeps your data in sync whether you enter information on your iPad, iPhone or Mac.

To get started, register for an account at sync.easybooksapp.com. Tap Create new account and fill in your details. You'll receive an email with your registration information. Just tap the link in the email and your iPad will sign in.

You can view the same email on your other devices to sign them in too, or key in the username and password. You can change your password in the Settings tab of your account page at sync.easybooksapp.com.

Once Easy Books has launched and signed in, tap Turn On in the Online Syncing screen. This uploads your data to our servers over an encrypted connection. Wait for the green light and the message "Up to date". After that, all future changes you make on the device are tracked and sent to the service whenever a network connection is available.

Now let's repeat the process on a second iPad. This iPad has Easy Books installed, but hasn't been run before and contains no data. Simply open the same email and tap the link to launch Easy Books. It will sign in and present a list of businesses available to download to the device. Tap the business shown and wait for the data to download and the message "Up to date".

When you later open Easy Books, it's best to watch and wait for the green light each time so you know the device you're using is up to date before you begin making any changes. If you're not online, the app shows an orange light and will try to send your changes in the background when a network connection is available.

Registering for Online Sync

You can register for an account at sync.easybooksapp.com/user/register. You'll receive an email shortly afterwards with your registration information. You can then connect your devices as shown in the video, sign in to sync.easybooksapp.com using a browser to change your password, and reset your password if you forget it at sync.easybooksapp.com/user/password.
