View Full Version : HELP - I am about to lose my entire calendar!

HELP! - I am about to lose my entire calendar!

I want to see the colours I use in Outlook on my PC appear on DejaCalendar on my phone.
I now accidentally deleted my entire calendar on Outlook.
Weirdly I can see that it is still present on DejaCloud (mainly because the password/userID combination is failing!)

How can I get my calendar entries back?

What's worse is that CompanionLink are not picking up ther Support phone lines: (503)243-5200.
And their Support Ticket (here: http://www.companionlink.com/support/) are failing to submit.


A) On my two PCs
On both of my 2 PCs I am running Outlook 2016 and they get their data from Microsoft Office 365.
Both PCs are running Window 8.1 (x64).
I had installed CompanionLink For Outlook, which I purchased on 02/11/2015 19:47.

B) Smartphone
On my smartphone (a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 - Android 5.0) I was running DejaOffice.
On my smartphone I also have various other applications that run calendars
e.g. Nine (which I am only using for emails & contacts)
e.g. Business Calendar
e.g. Outlook for Android

I was using DejaCalendar in order to get the Categories & Colours from my Outlook Calendar on my PCs to appear on my smartphone (via DejaCalendar).


Recently Outlook & CompanionLink started to fail (something about running out of space).
For this reason:
- Today I reinstalled the Microsoft Office Suite.
- Today I reinstalled CompanionLink For Outlook.

I was then trying to use DejaCloud to sync, but no matter what I did, I could not get my appointments in my PCs to synchronise with Deja Calendar.
On CompanionLink, when I clicked on the big "Sync" button on the main screen, I got "Connecting to DejaCloud..." but then then next screen said "DejaCloud Error: Invalid Username or Password". The trouble was that I could not find anywhere to change my password for DejaCloud.

So then I tried to get CompanionLink to sync between my Outlook and Office 365.

==> The result was that all my calendar entries in Outlook have been lost. !!!

As things stand, I can still see my calendar appointments on DejaCalendar on my phone. So presumably they still exist on DejaCloud.

Btw, out of desperation I also ticked the box on DejaOffice to get it to sync with the Android calendar even though there was a warning message saying that this was not recommended because it would slow down my phone.

1. I need to recover the calendar appointments which are visible in DejaCalendar back into my Outlook (and Office 365).
2. I want to be able to see the categories and colours that are set up on my PC in Outlook 2016 Calendar, on my smartphone.

Any suggestions?

Many thanks

Hi Ship69,

I think a tech reached out to you on Monday. I apologize for the phone line problem. We moved our office last weekend and phones didn't come up until Tuesday. We put a MASSIVE note on the Support web page with an online status on the phones.

If you are not all set then please email support@dejaoffice.com for assistance.

I apologize for the inconvenience.
