    Post DejaOffice for Android - General release schedule

    Update March 2014:

    DejaOffice for Android 2.5.9 - Current release - lots of updates and feature requests here

    DejaOffice for Android 3.1 - Next release

    1. Revised Alarm system to use notifications. Android has introduce active notifications and the ability to put options (snooze dismiss) in the notification bar. We want to switch to this system rather than the current popup. Also see if we can tie elegantly into Google Now.

    2. New widgets - Need to revamp Calendar 4x4 (resizable) widget to scroll. Add a month view widget. Support lock screen widgets.

    3. Templates - Create templates by making an appointment or contact, or task and adding to the Template category. Whenever you add a new Contact, Event, or Task you will be prompted for Blank, or use your existing template. The template can fill in key details so you don't have to re-enter them. Make a "Business Appointment" template that fills in business category, location and note. Make a "Time with kids" template with a completely different set of defaults.

    4. Left side menu - quickly move from app to app

    5. Adjust fonts look and feel

    6. Alarm list - see your alarms as an "App"

    DejaOffice for Android - Future

    3. Voice command system - Ability to "dictate" task lists, add voice notes, and voice-dial contacts. This is a big system and will be pulling into place through the first half of 2014. This will first be released as a separate App called DejaVoice. Once that is out, this will be combined with DejaOffice

    4. Google Glass integration - when Google Glass comes out. Right now we are seeing Google Glass as a notification and input system that relies on the phone for data.

    Finally, outside of DejaOffice Android, other development includes

    DejaCloud Sync - DejaOffice CRM Live - "Connectors" now pull data live from Google (Dec 2013), Outlook 365, Salesforce and Infusionsoft. iCloud coming soon. So DJOL will be a central hub for other online cloud systems.

    DejaCloud Sync - Connect accounts under a group name, so you can see and schedule group calendars and group resources.

    DejaVoice, DejaTranslate - Separate apps for Dictation and translation.

    We are pretty excited right now about the voice command system (DJVA/DJVI) and Google Glass integration giving us a bit of a boost in Spring 2014 to keep our system on the leading edge.

    Feedback is welcome. I'll be updating this post frequently. Posted as sticky. Last update March 30, 2014

    I just did my first sync with Dejaoffice to my Motorola Droid. I see all my info in Dejaoffice, but it is not in my Droid Calendar or Contacts. Is that supposed to happen automatically per this 5/20 post?

    Adding/updating/deleting an event in DejaOffice calendar will now automatically save to Android Calendar app.
    * When adding a new contact to DejaOffice, it will transfer to the Android Contacts app immediately.

    Betsy welcome to the Forums!

    It depends on how much data you synchronized. If you have more than 1500 Contacts, it will not automatically go to the onboard apps.

    You can manually override this using Settings > Sync Settings, and then check the boxes for Sync Android Contacts and Calendar. After setting this, do one more sync with the PC and it should sync through.

    If you go to the onboard apps, we recommend you keep your data set under 1500 Contacts and about 500 Calendar events. Clear them out of Outlook to do this. For people who are already under this, there will be no conflict.

    Better and better

    Your product just keeps getting better and better. The font improvement in calendar is greatly appreciated by my over 40 eyes. And the choice to have a white background makes everything so much more readable.

    The issues I still have and the features I am hoping for you are already working on (notification alarms, reminders etc.)

    I gave a 5 star rating for this app a while back, but really you and your team should get 5 stars. You have provided people in a business environment like me a much needed app that provides security and confidentiality (no cloud), and the ability to take our business contacts, tasks, notes, and calendar everywhere we go. I am grateful! God bless you!

    I do not know if this is the right place to post this. I am a one man service company. I put all my service appointments as a task, Outlook, and then when I do the service I put it in the calendar so I have a date time stamp, etc. It would be great if this could be automated from the task. If I could long press a task and have one of the options be to 'make calendar item'. once in the calendar I can fine tune it, but just to have it jump over there would be a great time saver. Also PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE remember that a lot of us use the phone one handed. So please try to make your software work while using only one hand and thumb typing. Not everyone that uses a smart phone sits in an office, some of us are hot and sweaty and climbing up on ladders looking up info and tech specs. Thank you.

    Feel free to post feedback anywhere in the forum! If you find that a particular part of our software is difficult to use one-handed, just let us know and we'll see what we can do.

    It would be great if you could continue to post each new release notes here - so we can look at them BEFORE downloading the new version. Or - are they available somewhere else on your web site?
