    It's not in the tabs. From the main window, at the top are three items: File, Options, Help. Hit the middle one "Options" and then Purge and Reload All.

    I hope this information helps.

    Hi Alli, I am the same Paul who emailed you last week re iPhone envy and fear. And I think I first mentioned DejaOffice. I am trying it. Several points.

    1. Three bugs already: a) In a calendar entry, there is a field for "contact". It doesn't link to contacts so I guess it's designed to just be informative. That's not my problem. I entered a contact and now can not delete it.

    b) Of greater concern: sometime after entering a contact there is a noticeable delay after pressing Done. Several times, I have just pressed the button and exited DejaOffice. I think re-entering I did have the entry.

    c) I can seem to get my trial of C-L to put date into D-O from outlook.

    2. Another question: is anyone beside Alli and me using this? As far as I can tell, D-O is the only iphone PIM that will allow USB synching. Do you agree?

    3. Do I have this correct? -- D-O offers more features than resident iPhone PIM features, notably recognizes a phone number even when not in a phone field (but rather notes).

    4. Companionlink is needed for me because itunes will only synch Outlook to the resident iphone PIM, soooo if I'm willing to rely on you, I also need Companion link, right?

    5. The $49.95 version will suffice for me, since I don't want wireless, right?

    6. okay - I am a former sw product manager so I have some sense of what goes on behind the scenes, notably how little room for error there is for data synchronization, ESP when moving from one platform and/or OS to another. I really want this to work. Problem at work - I work in a secure facility so giving you remote access to my office desktop is not going to happen. But my laptop at home - we can talk although that might be tough during normal business hours. Not impossible but something we'd have to schedule. I'm willing.

    Hi Paul! It's funny, about a day after you mentioned DejaOffice, I saw it announced somewhere with a link so I figured I needed to take a closer look.

    Weird that you're not getting contact linking. Mine definitely works.

    I've been assuming (I know...bad thing to do) that the forums are empty because either no one has found them yet, or no one is having any problems with the product. I figure as much as I've talked up CompanionLink through various forums and websites over the last year that surely plenty of people were using it and could then benefit from DO.

    point 7 another bug - when I use the search function, the initial results appear above the keyboard, but I can only scroll a little bit. It refuses to keep scrolling. Yes, there definitely are more results. This of course makes searching something less than useful.

    and a request - when will search work across D-O components so I find all results whether it be in calendar or contacts or notes or tasks, etc. IPhone's impedded search does this and it alone could be enough to send me back.

    Paul, welcome to the Forums.

    First, I apologize in my delay responding, and also for the spam that got in this thread as a reply to you. Our forums are new, and we're already becoming aware there are spambots. Hopefully with some vigilance we can keep them at bay.

    > 1. Three bugs already: a) b) c) I can seem to get my trial of C-L to put date into D-O from outlook.

    I'm having my team look into A and B. On C, what kind of date is not coming over?

    > 2. Another question: is anyone beside Alli and me using this? As far as I can tell, D-O is the only iphone PIM that will allow USB synching. Do you agree?

    iPhone DejaOffice is an implementation of iClink which is a two year old product from CompanionLink. For 2010 we've come to accept that Apple will never get any better in the CRM arena. They are going to continue to target the facebook crowd. So we've shifted our focus to making iPhone do everything that old Palm OS does, and then add in features from Outlook and ACT! to make a Office suite for iPhone, iPad and Android.

    iClink was just a sync destination for CompanionLink's products to support iPhone.

    DejaOffice is a new platform, for "Office" functions beyond what the native apps support.

    Not even DejaOffice will allow USB sync, because USB Sync is apparently still against the rules. We are looking to provide direct WiFi Sync. This will have no monthly fee, because it's just from your own PC, to your own iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch. Last week we experience a small setback in our development time line. Currently we hope for beta WiFi sync in early May, with full release around May 19, 2010 for this feature.

    Until then, please use the wireless. If you email me directly your wireless ID, I'll extend your account so there are no billings. This offer is open to everyone using DejaOffice. My direct email is wayland@companionlink.com.

    > 4. Companionlink is needed for me because itunes will only synch Outlook to the resident iphone PIM, soooo if I'm willing to rely on you, I also need Companion link, right?

    DejaOffice (DJO) can grab Contacts from any data source. So CompanionLink is not needed for Contacts.

    For Calendar, word is out now on iPhone 4 SDK. So after June, we will be able to grab Calendar from any data source (so they say).

    For Tasks you need CompanionLink, because iPhone lacks a native task application or sync system.

    > 5. The $49.95 version will suffice for me, since I don't want wireless, right?

    Yes. This will be the right product and price range for direct sync from Outlook to iPhone. For now this is in Beta so it's all free.

    > point 7 and a request.

    Noted and these will be improved and implement on the next update.

    I hope this give some of the information you are looking for!

    The contact field is just informative. As for deleting the contact, this is a known issue, and the programmers are already looking in to it.
    We are aware that some iPhones are having this delay; the programmers are already looking into it.

    We're already working on a fix for this one.

    This feature is already in the pipeline, and will be included in a future release.

    Let us know if we've missed anything here, or if I've misunderstood the issues.
