  2. Enter your FULL email address including @uwosh.edu in the ‘Email’ field and leave ‘Domain’ blank.
  3. Enter your FULL email address including @uwosh.edu in the ‘Username’ field
  4. Enter your email password.
  5. Change ‘Description’ to ‘TitanApps’ and tap ‘Next’.
  6. Tap ‘Continue’ at the ‘Cannot Verify Server Identity’ popup.
  7. In the ‘Server’ field enter ‘m.google.com’, then tap ‘Next’
  8. Verify you want Mail, Contacts, and Calendars, turn off what you do not wish to sync on your iOS device, then tap ‘Save’.
  9. If you already have contacts on your iOS device you may be asked what to do with your current contacts.
    • If you want to sync only the My Contacts group, you must choose to Delete Existing Contacts during the Google Sync install when prompted.
    • If you choose to keep existing contacts, it will sync the contents of the All Contacts group instead. If there are no contacts on your phone, the latter will happen -- the contents of your All Contacts group will be synced.

**Note: Choosing to Delete Existing Contacts will remove ALL Contacts on your Device!**

 

How to delete UW Oshkosh Titan Apps email, calendar, contacts from your iPhone or iPad.

You can turn Mail, Contacts, Calendar sync on or off individually by going to the Settings app, then 'Mail, Contacts, Calendars' and then clicking on Titan Apps.

Alternatively, you can delete all Titan Apps syncing and data from your iOS device by going to the Settings app, then General, then Profile. Once at the Profile screen, use the Remove button to comletely remove all Titan Apps data and sync services from your device. PLEASE NOTE! Once you do this, you will need to download the Profile app (above) again if you wish to setup sync in the future.
