Just noticed this on a contact in Outlook with both a home address and a other address. The other address is checked as the mailing address.

In Outlook:
Name
Home Address
Home City State Zip
Other Address
Other City State Zip

In Deja Contacts there is no home address just the city and state, under other there is absolutely nothing.

On Android contacts for home address the street is fine but the city and state are for the other address. The other address is just fine.

My plan is to delete all the android contacts using the remove contacts apps then do a sync where I wipe the android first. Is that what I should be doing?

Any comments will be appreciated.

If Outlook has all the data I'd proceed as follows:

- Make sure to have "Sync to Android Contacts" activated in DJO on your device.
- Check the Field Mapping in CL Advanced Settings for Work, Home and Other address.
In my case the first (xy Address) line was set to "Unmapped" in all 3 of them.
Change all 3 to "xy Address Street"
- Check "Wipe all records on Android before sync" in the CL Options menu.
- Start your sync

Let us know the outcome.

That did the trick, once I changed the Home address and Other address mapping the rest of the info fell into place on Deja Contacts and then to Android Contacts.

Thanks,
