The Omni Group Launches OmniPresence For Automatic Document Syncing

Federico Viticci breaks down the new document syncing solution from the Omni Group in his usual, comprehensive manner.

I have been really looking forward to the days when I could easily sync my OmniOutliner outlines from my Mac to iPad and it seems that day has finally arrived. Since my OmniSync Server account currently does not support OmniPresence, I followed Federico’s advise and got a free [Cloudsafe]( account to use with OmniPresence. The Cloudsafe setup process was pretty straight forward, but enabling WebDav was kind of confusing. For reference you need to:

1. Create a new “safe”

2. Give yourself read and write access to that safe via the “access chains”

3. Go to the “Safe Content” for that particular safe and click on the “WebDav” link.[^fn1] That will allow you enable WebDav.

After you get your WebDav login information, you can follow the rest of Federico’s review to get yourself up and running on OmniPresence.

[^fn1]: The link does not look like it will do anything, but, trust me, it will ask you if you want to enable WebDav.
