How to Sync iPhone with Outlook

While it makes sense to take a strategic approach towards collaboration software, as a tool which will have far reaching effects on how a business operates, oftentimes, businesses opt for collaboration software in response to an immediate problem. This is a first of a series of informative articles we will feature on the HyperOffice blog that deal with common problems that businesses face,  and how they can be solved by HyperOffice as well as other solutions.

As iPhone becomes popular as a business tool, employees quite naturally want to be able to access and sync Outlook and iPhone mail, contacts and calendars. There are three main ways to get this done:

1. Wired sync using iTunes

2. Wireless sync using a web service like HyperOffice

3. Sync using an enterprise messaging server like Exchange

.

Wired Sync Using iTunes.

1. This is applicable if you are an iTunes user. You need to follow the following steps.

2. Make sure the iTunes plugin is enabled in Outlook

3. Connect your iPhone to your computer

4. iTunes should open up automatically

5. You need to open the Info tab in iTunes, and select “Outlook” from the “sync contacts with:” and “sync calendars with:” drop down.

6. Click the “Sync” button

Limitations

- You need to connect your iPhone to your computer everytime you need to sync.

- It is only one-way sync, meaning your Outlook information will appear on your iPhone, but not vice versa.

- Although iTunes has a “sync email” option, it only syncs email settings and not messages. To sync email between iPhone and Outlook, you need to set up the same IMAP account on both.

.

Using a web service like HyperOffice. (Recommended only if you are looking for a team, not personal solution)

If your SMB does not have, and can not afford an enterprising messaging server like Exchange, a web service like HyperOffice is the ideal option. HyperOffice is a cloud based service that syncs with both Outlook and iPhone, and hence acts as a bridge that allows bi-directional sync between Outlook and iPhone. This offers a number of benefits. Firstly, you don’t need to install any dedicated servers or software. Secondly, you are not tethered to a single computer, and your information is synched wirelessly over the air in real time even when you are travelling. Plus, HyperOffice also includes support for a wide range of other device, and allows you to sync Outlook with devices like BlackBerry, Android, and Nokia etc. You need to take the following steps:

1. Sign up online for HyperOffice and log in

2. Set up synching between HyperOffice and Outlook using the HyperShare add-in.

3. Go to the “Settings” tab, and then “Mobile Sync”

4. Click Setup Phone, and Select the manufacturer, model & carrier from and enter phone number. Click continue.

5. In this step, enter code received on your mobile device and click on verify.

6. On the next screen, select data items to sync.

7. Once HyperOffice is set up, you now need to set up your iPhone. First you click on settings on your iPhone and scroll down & tap Mail, Contacts, Calendars.

8. Tap Add Account & select Microsoft Exchange as the type of account.

9. Enter HyperOffice email address and the password.

10. In the new server field enter hypersync.hyperoffice.com and hit next and select the services (Mail, Contacts, Calendars) you wish to sync.

.

Using an Enterprise Messaging Server like Microsoft Exchange

This option is applicable if you have Microsoft Exchange (2003, 2007, 2010) set up at your company, and powering Outlook. iPhone syncs with Exchange through the ActiveSync protocol. You need to take the following steps:

1. Set up your Outlook account using Exchange

2. On your iPhone screen, click “settings”

3. Click on mail, contacts, calendars

4. Click on “add account” and select “Exchange”

5. On the next screen, fill out your Email, Domain, Username, Password, and Description.

6. If auto-discovery is enabled in Exchange, the next screen will be automatically prepopulated. If not, you need to fill out the server information, and click next.

7. Now iPhone displays a list of data types you want to sync – mail, contacts and calendars. Click on “save” to complete the process.

Limitations

- You need to have Exchange Server installed, which is typically an enterprise product costing up to thousands of dollars. This is not an optimal solution for SMBs.

- If you want to extend syncing capabilities beyond iPhone, Exchange does not support non ActiveSync devices.

HyperOffice is an iCloud alternative for team collaboration

iCloud is great news

iCloud is great news for the cloud industry as a whole. As everyone knows, the genius of Steve Jobs is to show everyone the importance of “sexy” in technology (for lack of a better word) – take an existing technology, and make it so compelling, so beautiful, that people can’t wait to lay their hands on that sleek shiny new thing.  He did that with iPhone, and repeated it with iPad.

The same could well happen with iCloud. The cloud has been around in the consumer market for more than a decade, and the business world has finally embraced it in the last couple of years. But Steve Jobs’ visibility and marketing genius could make the “cloud” meme so commonplace, that no cloud vendor ever has to lose hair again trying to explain to a prospect what the cloud is.

However, iCloud is not a team tool, nor is it intended to be.

iCloud is not for collaboration

Firstly, iCloud is designed as a personal data management tool. You have a personal account, which you use to access data across the iPhone, iPad and Mac. It simply has no “sharing” or “groupware” functionality.

Secondly, iCloud is not a traditional “cloud” solution. It has no web-browser access option, which is the cornerstone of most cloud solutions. All data (music, mail, apps) must be accessed on local applications on the iPhone, iPad or the Mac desktop. Therefore, in effect, the cloud is invisible in the background, and it pushes and synchronizes data between local applications. It has been argued that this model is simply not suitable for collaboration, which is more about everyone accessing a common instance of data on the cloud and working on it. In the “sync” model, an instance of the data is pushed locally, and changes synced back to the master copy on the cloud. The more the number of users working on that bit of data, the more complex the situation is.

Thirdly, iCloud restricts users to the Apple ecosystem. It effectively excludes users who prefer to have online access to their data, access it on their PC, or want to access it on one of the myriad mobile devices around in addition to iPhone and iPad.

HyperOffice lets you collaborate on Apple devices

However, quite undeniably, there is a segment of users and businesses who work primarily in the Apple environment, and want a solution that will let them share data in the Apple ecosystem. At HyperOffice, we have made a constant attempt to make our solutions compatible with an ever larger number of popular business environments. We have kept a constant eye on various Apple devices as they have gained importance in the businesses world, and continued to add support.

HyperOffice is the ideal solution for businesses looking to access and share corporate email, contacts, calendars and other information across their iPhone, iPad and Mac devices, and beyond.

Here is how HyperOffice supports each of these devices:

iPhone: HyperOffice support all mobile devices based on ActiveSync. This means iPhone users can push and wirelessly sync their business email, contacts and calendars on their devices. Since HyperOffice is a team solution, users can even share iPhone contacts and calendars with other team members. Anytime you create a meeting or edit a contact, you can choose to let everyone in your team know immediately.

Plus, HyperOffice is optimized for access from the iPhone Chrome browser. Users can access advanced HyperOffice collaboration software tools like shared documents, projects, forums, and workspaces right from their iPhone.

iPad: In addition to iPhone, HyperOffice also supports synching with the native mail, contact and calendar apps just like iCloud. Only, you can even share this information with team members. Besides, users can access HyperOffice features from their iPad Chrome browser.

Mac: HyperOffice allows synching with the native mail, contacts and calendars of Mac using a third party tool called SyncJE. Entourage in turn, is designed to automatically synchronize with these native Mac apps. In effect, Mac users can access their corporate mail, calendars and contacts from the native apps of Mac or entourage, and keep them in sync across devices.

Beyond Apple: Unlike iCloud, HyperOffice by no means restricts users to sharing and collaborating on information only in the Mac universe. All of HyperOffice’s features can be accessed from any PC or Mac web browser in the world. Support for mobile devices is also not restricted to iPhone and iPad, and fully extends to phones like Android, Nokia, Windows Mobile and even BlackBerry. Plus, people who are addicted to Outlook, may continue to use Outlook to access and share mail, contacts, calendars and tasks using our Outlook synchronization functionality.

So, if you are a Apple die hard, and looking to fully leverage your shiny Apple gadget to collaborate with teams, do hit us up.

HyperSync is now HyperMobile!

Given the growing importance of mobility in HyperOffice capabilities, we thought it was time to give our mobile sync services a slight image makeover. So what you have hitherto affectionately referred to as HyperSync, gets the crisp, all-new, and descriptive title of HyperMobile. The same beloved product, but in new garb. There are a couple of reasons for the change:

HyperSync had the potential of being confused with the other “sync” services HyperOffice provides, namely, Outlook synchronization and the ability to sync with Mac mail and contacts. We felt that “HyperMobile” was a lot more descriptive, in that it makes clear the mobile specific capabilities of HyperOffice.

This is a great opportunity to re-emphasize our commitment to support an ever greater range of “mobile” features, and help popularize the concept of “mobile collaboration”. Mobile collaboration does not refer merely to the ability to collaborate on mobile phones, but reflects the emergence of new age devices – mobile phones, tablets, netbooks – and workers’ desire to access and collaborate on business information independent of device. Workers want to instantly collaborate and access information across all these devices depending on where they are – at office, at home, at a client site or on the road – without being tied to a single one. That is the spirit of “mobile collaboration”.

HyperMobile already offers powerful mobility features  including the ability to push and sync mail, contacts, calendars and tasks on their devices; share this information with colleagues; push information from third party sources like Gmail, Yahoo mail, and Hotmail ; and support for most major mobile devices. We plan to keep building on these capabilities and exciting new mobility features form a prominent part of our product roadmap. Keep following us to keep updated!

The Heyday of Mobile Collaboration : 4 Important Mobile Productivity Tools

How’s this for an explosive concoction.

As of June 2010, 93% of Americans owned a mobile phone. Penetration in other developed nations like Germany and UK has crossed 100%. Not far behind are developing countries (Brazil – 100%, India – 56%, China – 59%). Now consider the fact that a growing percentage of these mobile users (31% in USA in Nov 2010) use smart phones – powerful, internet friendly and addictive phones like Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, and Nokia. Add to this mix the emergence of wireless technologies like 3G and 4G which make wireless data transfer a breeze.

No wonder data usage over mobile devices is surging! Or that the mobile internet is expected to exceed desktop internet by 2015. Or that the mobile platform is the new focus of diverse areas such as advertisement and application development. Indeed, this is the decade of mobile technology.

Business Impact of Mobile Market Growth

As expected, businesses are not insulated from these gargantuan changes. Especially since the new market is pushing the worker to be more “mobile” – on the road, working from a client site or home, or working with a globally distributed network of colleagues and partners. IDC expects a third of the world’s working population to consist of “mobile workers” by 2013.

Habituated to using their mobile devices for everything beyond talking and texting – checking email, browsing the web, posting on FaceBook and Twitter, playing with apps or finding their way with maps – workers increasingly see the mobile devices as ways to connect with work. According to a recent Forrester study, a whopping 49% of small business owners are reported to own smartphones.

Since workers need, want and expect to keep connected with work outside the office site, it is imperative upon businesses to provide them with the right tools to do so. Changing trends in corporate IT spend reflect this. The SMB Group found that mobile spending now accounts for almost 10% of all technology spending for U.S. small and medium businesses and amounted to $26.1B on mobile solutions and services in 2010.

The mobile tools that organizations need to provide employees range from access to essential business information like email, contacts and calendars, to mobile collaboration tools which allow them to share and work together on business information. Going forward, businesses fill feel an increasing need to provide employees mobile access to specialized business apps and work-flows.

4 Important Mobile Productivity Tools

Push Email. Push email allows employees to access and manage their corporate email accounts right from the native email app of their mobile device, and keep it synchronized.

Mobile email remains one of the top business uses of mobile phones. Nielsen found that users spent close to 42% of their mobile internet time on email. Much of this is business related email use. A recent study on Mobile Messaging from Osterman research found that more than 95% of respondents check e-mail after work hours. Email is one of the top business technologies, and companies will find that enabling workers with the ability to access email on their mobile phones will allow workers to keep connected with work, and in turn increase productivity and speed reaction times in business situations. In Ostermans study, 84% of respondents revealed that their senior manager’s ability to make critical, time-sensitive decisions will be affected if they do not have access to mobile e-mail.

Push Calendars. Push calendars allow workers to access corporate schedules from their mobile phone, and set up meetings and events and keep them in sync with their Outlook or other business calendars. In the face a hundred demands on their time, push calendars allow workers to be organized and keep on top of schedules, even when they are outside office and don’t have access to their corporate calendar.

Push Contacts. Push contacts allow workers to manage their business contacts lists from the address book of their mobile device. It is a great convenience to be able to quickly look up a contact on the mobile phone, when one does not have access to the company’s contact management system.

Collaboration Tools. Apart from essential mobile productivity tools, the demand is shifting to tools that not only let workers access important corporate information, but work together on this information with colleagues. Indeed, the ante is being raised to “mobile collaboration”. These tools, which may be accessed through native mobile apps, or the mobile browser, allow workers to share contacts, calendars, documents and other corporate information with colleagues.

According to Tonya Fowler, Global Director with Frost & Sullivan’s Customer Research Team “tools that enhance the mobile experience (i.e., such as Web-based collaboration tools) are likely to see increased levels of adoption sooner rather than later.”

Afterword

The above market movements have been experienced by us at HyperOffice as well. Mobile support has been a much requested feature by our users. We have made an effort to keep up with our customer requests as well as emerging trends in the market. Our HyperOffice Collaboration Suite has dedicated web interfaces for mobile devices, and all features may be accessed through a user’s mobile browser. About a year ago, we decided to take things to the next level and address some gaping lacunae in the market.We found that users increasingly want solutions that allow them to leverage the native apps of their mobile device. Moreover, there was a shortage of inexpensive mobile messaging solutions which worked ubiquitously across devices, rather than limiting users to a single, or a few choices.

Based on that, we introduced HyperSynch, a fully hosted add on push messaging service to our suite, which allows users to push and sync business email, contacts, calendars and tasks with the native apps of almost every major mobile device in the market including iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Nokia, Windows Mobile and more.

Veteran Saas Collaboration Software Suite releases biggest upgrade ever

Today marks a major milestone in our company history, as we release a modern interface built with on AJAX. This release is a culmination of more than a few years of feedback from hundreds of thousands of our customers. As of today our flagship product, HyperOffice Collaboration Suite has two versions available simultaneously, referred to as the Classic version and the Modern version.  We expect that some of our customers have become accustomed to the Classic version and may not need the additional features which the new version affords, and will continue to support the classic version for the foreseeable future.

So what’s new? Here are some highlights, or you can check out this video.

- Modern Intuitive Design and User Interface

- New Color Calendar System

- Simple Customization and Branding

- Easier Administration and Onboarding

- Robust Project Management System

- New Wiki and Site Publisher

What did we do differently this time?

Since our humble beginnings in 1998, the way teams collaborate has undergone many transformations. As our target customers, small businesses and distributed teams, began to embrace new ways to work, we added new capabilities to our core messaging and collaboration suite. For example wikis became popular, and we added group wikis, people wanted more sophisticated project management tools,  so we beefed that up, road warriors wanted calendars and emails pushed to their mobile devices, so we rolled out HyperSynch, web conferencing became the norm, in comes HyperMeeting.

As you can imagine when you make so many improvements incrementally things may not gel as well as they could. 3 years ago we took a fresh look at our product and began planning for these developments. Along the way we proactively collected feedback from our customers on improvements which needed to be made. With today’s version, you will notice a fully integrated suite of collaboration and messaging tools that fit together elegantly , while being the most comprehensive in the market and simple to use.

Once we re-architected HyperOffice from the ground up, we interviewed customers, went on a many road trips to meet our clients in person.  We also stood up a Product Development Committee which is exclusively made up of customers who we meet with on a regular basis. They help us prioritize our roadmap, get specific feedback on features, designs, etc. Lastly, we spent 6 months in beta on the new version.

So here we are. A new and improved collaboration suite from one of the first SaaS companies in the market, laser focused on collaboration software and meeting the unique needs of the small medium sized businesses.  We thank our loyal customers tremendously for believing in our product, our company, and being so innovative to embrace the cloud before the tipping point as cloud computing moves into the masses.

We are proud to make such significant improvement without having to charge our customers a dollar more for all the new features or move to the new version. I think this is one of the most incredible things about the SaaS model.  It just gets better over time – for free!

Over the summer you will see more improvements aimed at helping customers adopt our product easier with usability improvements and adding customer requested features every couple months.

HyperSynch Mobile Collaboration is a Big Hit

A couple of weeks ago, we launched the beta of HyperSynch, a mobile collaboration service built into our HyperOffice online collaboration software, which allows growing business workers to use their mobile devices to access and collaborate on business information.hypersynch-blog

Mobility is here to stay

HyperSynch was developed as we could clearly see the growing importance of mobile devices in the business context. Apart from our own interactions with our users and the market, this is clearly indicated by recent market studies – A Gartner study predicts that by 2013, mobile phones will overtake PCs as the most common Web access device worldwide; According to a recent IDC report ““almost 40 percent of organizations plan to deploy a SaaS-based mobile solution in the next 12–18 months.”

This has been fuelled by changes converging from all directions – advancements in mobile technology; the emergence of powerful and compelling mobile devices such as the iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Nokia etc, and greater bandwidth of net access on mobile devices. But most importantly, it has been fuelled by end business users increasingly wanting to use their mobile devices as a tool to access and collaborate business information.

Market offerings and their shortcomings

Recent times have seen the launch of business mobile apps by large companies attempting to fill this space. Apple launched MobileMe, which allows users to synch personal mail, contacts, calendars etc over the air between their iPhone and desktop. RIM launched BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express, a server based sister of its enterprise solution BES, which allows synchronization with MS Exchange data.

But these solutions suffer from some clear drawbacks, especially from a small business perspective: –

1)    Either they work with a single device and service (MobileMe works only with iPhone and its AT&T web telephony service),
2)    Are simply too expensive from a total cost standpoint (BES Express and MS  Exchange both assume that MS Exchange is installed at the company servers which can cost thousands of dollars in implementation and maintenance)
3)    Allow you to only manage personal information rather than share and collaborate on it with colleagues.

Why the media likes HyperSynch

HyperSynch was launched to fill this glaring gap of a solution which worked across mobile platforms (HyperSynch works with almost every major mobile device in the market including iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Nokia, Windows Mobile and more), was hosted and did not require users to install or maintain anything, was priced reasonably with growing business in mind, and allowed users to share and collaborate with colleagues right from their mobile devices.

As we hoped and expected, HyperSynch was a big hit with the media on its launch, and we got covered and received flattering comments from well known tech journals such as MSPMentor, CMSWire, PCMag, and BusinessComputingWorld.

Here is what some of them had to say:-

“And that’s the real joy of it — companies with even the beta release of HyperSynch won’t have to decide on whether to invest in Blackberry Enterprise Server or Microsoft Exchange Server or MobileMe based on the mobile device their employees are using, as HyperSynch works with them all.” David Roe, CMSWire.com.

“RIM, get ready for a fight: HyperOffice has announced that HyperSynch, an over-the-air push-messaging solution that works as well with the iPhone, the Droid, or even Windows Mobile devices as it does the BlackBerry, has entered beta testing. What’s more, it’s going to be included, gratis, with HyperOffice deployments. Interested?” Matthew Weinberger, MSPMentor.com

“Would especially appeal to growing businesses” Kevin Tea, BusinessComputingWorld.uk

In the larger context of fast evolving mobile business technology and from a capabilities standpoint, industry experts clearly recognize the relevance of HyperSynch.

Mobile collaboration comes to growing businesses

logo“Exchange for the rest of us” was the slogan used to announce MobileMe to the world. It allows users to push email, calendars and contacts to their iPhone without expensive MS Exchange installed on their servers. A relief indeed.

But a few questions arise.

- What if you wanted to use a device other than iPhone and allow employees to be able to push corporate email, calendars, contacts or tasks to whichever device they already had, say, a BlackBerry, an iPhone, Windows Mobile, Nokia or any other?

- What if you wanted to go beyond accessing and synching personal information, and actually allow your teams to be able to share contacts, calendars and tasks on their mobile phone?

- What if you wanted to synch your mobile with your Outlook account, with or without Exchange?

These aren’t questions MobileMe can answer. Not quite “Exchange for the rest of us” then?

HyperSynch – True Mobile Collaboration for Growing Businesses

Today, we announced the beta launch of HyperSynch, a service added to the HyperOffice Collaboration Suite for no extra cost, which allows users to push, synch and share mail, calendars, contacts and tasks across multiple mobiles, PC and Macs.

HyperSynch is uniquely positioned to empower teams in growing businesses to use their mobile phones as business tools, for the following reasons: -

Bring your own mobile
– HyperSynch can push and synch emails, calendars, contacts and tasks for almost every major mobile phone platform including iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Nokia, Android, Java phones etc. You don’t need to force employees to buy a particular phone, or even procure special business purpose phones.  In all likelihood, HyperSynch will work with the mobile phone everyone already has.

Completely online
– Unlike expensive mobility software like BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) or MS Exchange, which require dedicated hardware, HyperSynch is completely web based – no servers to set up or software to download and install. Exchange and BES for the rest of us?

MobileWe! – Not only can you synchronize personal mail, contacts, calendars and tasks on your mobile phone, you can even share this information with your team! Any edits you make to shared contacts, will be reflected on your teams mobile phones in seconds; set up a group event, and everyone in your team will know, and so on.

Outlook Synchronization – HyperSync also lets you keep your mobile in sync with your Outlook mail, contacts, calendars, tasks and notes. No MS Exchange needed!

Battery Friendly – Regular IMAP/POP3 mobile mail sucks battery life right out of your mobile phone, when it queries the mail server every few minutes. HyperSynch puts the energy-onus on the server, as information is pushed only when it is updated.

Mobile Collaboration – Since HyperSynch is built into HyperOffice, you also get the benefit of HyperOffice’s award winning online collaboration software features – document storage and sharing, intranet/extranet workspaces, polls, forums, web forms etc. You can access these features right on your mobile browser, in addition to any PC or Mac browser.

Company.com launches to help small businesses collaborate online via social networking to save money and boost productivity.

company_logo_11_144x81

While social networking has been all the hype lately, it’s not clear/proven how small businesses will put it to work for them. New companies sprout up daily claiming to be experts to help you leverage social networking in your small businesses. Typically they focus on building a message, report, widget, video that will get passed around and people will hear about your business. Others advise you on how to protect you reputation in communities and use communities like LinkedIn to find leads and insert yourself in relevant discussions online.

How many communities can one possibly be active in? There’s no shortage of online communities; Salesforce.com has Chatter, Google just put out Buzz, LinkedIn is my favorite so far, and of course Facebook.

We come back to the question, how can businesses put social networking to work for them. I think Company.com has the answer. What they do different is structure the conversations and match up people so business owners and management can find conversations around their toughest problems. They do this by creating communities with experts they have vetted who contribute with solid advice. I’ve sifted through and have been impressed so far.

Company.com wants to be there for you from cradle to crave, by helping you find information around every step of the small business cycle i.e. how to raise finances, technology advice, how to streamline operations, advice on business strategy, and more.

They are backed by a very experienced management team – In my opinion the single biggest factor to the success of new business ventures. They also bring that human touch to helping businesses save money by vetting vendors, side-by-side comparisons, negotiating the best deal for their members- you- the small business owner. Not just another ad-based non-discriminating aggregator like business.com

They want to “help businesses make money and save money.” We’ll, we’re all for that.
At HyperOffice “ Our mission is to empower growing organizations with technology traditionally available only to large enterprises, and help them achieve business growth, competitive advantage and success.”

You can see why we decided to get behind Company.com and help small businesses compete with more effective and lower cost collaboration software. I hope you’ll check them out, and I look forward to watching them become a household name.

Collaboration Software is a hit with Virtual Assistants

advadirectory

Last night the Virtual Assistance Chamber of Commerce sponsored a webinar event for their members titled Leveraging Collabortive Virtual Office Technology for Virtual Assistants and Solopreneurs, where they invited HyperOffice to present our collaboration software suite. This was the second event we have done together, in response to the tremendous amount of interest we have from the Virtual Assistant community. Seems like the downturn in the economy is leading to greater demand for Virtual Assistants – since small businesses are laying off full-time staff, yet still have to keep up with the demands of trying to grow their business.

One of the common themes during the webinar was business productivity online suites  like HyperOffice help Virtual Assistants save time in trying to service their customers, allowing them to take on more clients in the same amount of time. One time saving trick  Danielle Keister, VACOC Founder and Virtual Assistant expert, shared with the group was creating a virtual drive which can be shared with between Virtual Assistants and their clients.

Danielle demonstrated how  HyperDrive can be setup in a couple minutes to create a central document repository where documents can be stored securely while giving access to clients to view and upload files and documents. As compared to other tools on the market, HyperDrive allows you to store multiple versions of a shared document without the clutter of sifting through multiple files with built in document version controls right from your windows explorer (also available on Mac). HyperOffice welcomes the Virtual Assistant community to try HyperOffice and take advantage of our deep domain expertise on setting up your virtual office to streamline your business using HyperOffice.
