Re: Importing emails from gmail.

However you have to be aware this is not imap protocol so huge problems if you use outlook. We have 4 front desk. All have individual emails but also access to the shared office email. If you put that into open dental there is no 2 way sync (requires imap) so will mess up your outlook.

Re: APteryx

I would be curious if it would work with regular apteryx as well. webviewer you have to pay for. It basically transfer your images to the cloud and then this bridge lets tou view them in open dental. Would be much faster and easier if it allowed just directly from the server locally. And save money.
