How to backup and sync Noteshelf Files (for iOS users)

Today I’m going to show you how you can backup and sync your files with other devices using the Noteshelf app.

Backup files in Noteshelf

Let’s first make sure that we can backup any or all of our files inside Noteshelf.

To be able to backup your files you need to go in the Noteshelf settings tab (top left corner on your dashboard), then click on Cloud & Backup.

In this tab you can set your auto-backup and also choose from a variety of cloud service providers here. You can choose between Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, Evernote or just simply use iCloud.

If you click on the auto-backup tab now you have the opportunity to choose which notebooks to backup.

Just look inside your folders and tap in the notebooks you want to backup.

Once you tap to select the notebooks the backup process will start straight away.

You can normally see in the Cloud & Backup tab when was the last time that your files were backed up.

Sync files between devices using Noteshelf

To be able to sync files between you iPad and iPhone you must have the app in both devices.

You can also sync audio files between your Apple Watch. It’s a one time purchase app for all of these devices. However, if you want to be able to see your notes on your Mac you must also purchase the Noteshelf app in the Mac App Store.

You can only auto sync via iCloud so that must be turned on inside the app for both devices, under the Cloud & Backup tab.

You also need to have iCloud Drive toggled on and enabled for Noteshelf in your iPad and iPhone settings.

On your devices, go to Settings and click on your Apple ID at the top. Then click on iCloud and toggle iCloud Drive on.

And that’s the only thing you have to do. Once you do that all your files will start syncing .

It can take quite some time in the first time, specially if you have many documents. You’ll see a little arrow at the top of each notebook showing you that your documents are syncing.

Once the notebooks are synced the arrow will go away and the documents will auto sync again after you make edits to your files.

If you have many documents already in your Noteshelf dashboard then I would just suggest you to set auto sync and and leave your iPad and your phone there for a while to sync.

Once all files are synced then the new edits sync pretty fast as long as you have a strong internet signal.
