Issue Description

I have Republic anywhere on 2 Android devices (phone and tablet) and 1 PC (Windows 10 Pro). For some reason contacts won't update on the PC version. I've tried the "Sync Contacts" command but it doesn't seem to be doing anything. It's been like this for a while. I recall asking Republic about this a while ago but it didn't resolve and it's still going on. Will uninstalling and reinstalling the Anywhere app on the PC fix this as it will hopefully re-download the current contacts list?

Hi @stevenb.9ndh0b and welcome to the Community!

I ran into what I think is a similar issue a while back and found the problem to be with the Anywhere app on my Republic phone. What worked for me is as follows:

  1. Open Anywhere.
  2. Tap 3 dots upper right.
  3. Tap Settings.
  4. If Sync contacts across devices is toggled off, toggle it on.
  5. If it’s already toggled on, toggle it off, then back on.

Thanks Roland! That did the trick!

That was easy!

Thanks again,
