Thread: Can Deja Contacts sync with the android contacts (ie so I can see incoming callerz)

    Can Deja Contacts sync with the android contacts (ie so I can see incoming callerz)

    Hello

    When I add contacts to my outlook and sync them with deja contacts via companionlink, the sync works OK. However, suppose I add Mary to my contacts with her phone number and then sync. If I get an incoming call from mary, I don't see the name on my phone.

    Is there any way to sync the data from deja contacts or to import it into the native droid contact list?

    I saw the option for syncing with the native droid apps. However, there is a warning that it could corrupt my data.

    - Outlook 2007 running on vista home premium
    - Companion link paid version
    - Deja office on the droid
    - Motorola Droid - x
    - Tethered via USB
    - I use a lot of the contact fields but I especially use the Notes field


    I am not terribly worried about syncing the calendar at this time, just the contacts.

    thanks

    Hi Christopher,

    Great question, and the answer is yes!

    Follow the Steps below:
    1. Open DejaOffice and Select Setttings>Sync Settings.
    2. Add a check mark to the Sync with Android Contacts option.
    3. Save the Changes and Navigate back to the Main DejaOffice Screen.
    4. You should now see a new icon in the main screen "Read Android Data".
    5. Tap the icon and it will read add your contact data into DejaOffice.

    A couple things to keep in mind when you do this:
    Some users report longer sync times when they sync with CompanionLink with this option turned on.
    Some users report duplicate records if they setup this feature after their initial sync Sync with CompanionLink.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Thomas,
    I think I have the duplicate thing going as well.
    Would a purge and reload cure this?
    I hate to mess anything else up at this time.
    Thanks.

    Ok,
    I took the plunge and did a purge and reload and WOLLAH!
    I now have a working natice contact screen!!!
    Everything seems to be back to normal for me.
    Although I havent tried to add or sync anything yet.
    Also the read android contacs is really slow.

    Also when I add a new contact and use the read Android contacts, I get two of the same in the native contact screen?

    Hi Jeff,

    So glad the Native screen works!
    Can you provide some specific information about the Read Native function being slow?
    How many contacts and approximately how long that takes would help. Also if it remains slow after multiple reads would be helpful.

    Jeff,

    Did you add a new contact to Native or the DejaOffice?
    What device and version are you using?

    Hi Thomas,
    I am syncing around 850 contacts.
    Sometimes the sync is relativly fast, like maybe a min. or two. and other times it might be as long as ten Min.
    It never seems to be the same.
    Also the read Android Data from the main page seems to take about 15 Min.
    Im running a DX with DO 1.11.2
    Also I added the contact in Native and then ran the read Android Data.

    I . My problem is different.
    I send a sms from DO Contacts (select a contact & Click on the message icon). When I look at my msg list in the built-in sms application, I can see the name of
    my recipients, while I see only the numbers of my senders. I have HTC Desire Z. How to make the name of my recipients appear?

    Hi John,

    I just tested this behavior with an HTC Inspire. If Sync with Android Contacts is disabled then the behavior you are reporting occurs. If Sync with Android Contacts is enabled, then the Contact information displays in the native SMS app.

    Do you have Sync with Android contacts enabled? It is the only way to get the result you are looking for.
    Please Advise.
