How to configure Settings On AstroContacts App?

Businesses, today, have become more dynamic than ever before. A small phone call or a short email can make or break deals. So, it goes without saying that having business contacts at the fingertips can be of immense help.

AstroContacts – Enterprise Contact Management Solution can ease business communication by enabling employees to access business contacts right on their phones. It also helps IT admin to ensure that important settings on devices are enabled when users install the AstroContact app. 

Here are the AstroContacts settings you can remotely control using AstroContacts Console:

  1. Auto Sync: This setting, once enabled, will copy all contact additions and modifications from the  AstroContacts app to the native phonebook app.
  2. Auto remove duplicates: This setting, once enabled, will remove all duplicate contacts with the same fields such as email address and/or phone number automatically from the native phonebook on contact sync.
  3. Selected tag sync: Once enabled, this setting will allow copying of contacts with selected tags from the AstroContacts app to the native phonebook app.
  4. Settings password: Enforce a password for the user to access AstroContacts Settings on the device.

How to  use Device Settings feature in AstroContacts Web Console

To use the Device Settings feature in the console, follow the below-mentioned steps:

2. On the console homepage,
