    syncing new Droid contacts into Deja contacts

    Ok, I got my contacts from the deja contacts into the droid contacts and am a happy camper, as it worked perfectly with all details of contacts in place. The trick was going into droid contacts, display settings and checking everything.

    Now I see that the Deja contacts are not updating (syncing) the new new entries from the droid contacts. I have sync checked in deja menu. Anyone know how to make this happen?

    Thnx

    A new contact in AndroidCountacts, should always go to DejaContacts if you a) Sync with CL USB or b) select Read Android Data in DejaOffice.

    What type of phone are you using?

    I have Moto Droid 2.1

    Last time I hit the "read android" button all my 1400 droid contacts vanished. Any idea why that would happen?
    Also where does Deja store deja contact info? At one point I had uninstalled it for quite a while, then when I reinstalled it, it still had my contacts saved.

    Thanx!

    Are you displaying all of your contact groups? Typically contacts will be deleted only if they were also deleted in DejaOffice.

    The DejaOffice database is stored on your Android's SD card, in a folder named "clusb".

    You mean displaying all contact grps on the droid contact app? Yes.

    DejaContacts is our application. So we have control of that. We don't control Android Contacts.

    If you add a Contact to DejaContacts, and you have the setting to synchronize to Android Contacts, it is automatically added to Android Contacts.

    If you add a Contact to Android Contacts, DejaOffice won't know about it until you a) Syncronize to the PC, or b) select "Read Android Contacts" from the DejaOffice menu.

    I hope this information helps.

    If you are worried about running the "read android" option you could turn Google contacts sync on, let the contacts sync to Google, and then back them up from there. FYI, the only time DejaOffice should remove any contacts from the native contacts is when it detects that the contacts have been deleted in DejaOffice first.
