The long-awaited update to RIM’s BlackBerry tablet, dubbed the PlayBook, has arrived. PlayBook OS 2.0 brings with it a host of new features, including integrated contacts and calendar apps. As such, CompanionLink is now able to sync the PlayBook with Outlook via Google. Learn how to set up an Outlook sync via Google
While many of the features in PlayBook OS 2.0 are welcome additions, perhaps the most anticipated feature is the ability to install Android-based applications on the PlayBook.
Now, this doesn’t work with just any application – to work properly on the PlayBook, developers must first modify their app and submit it to the BlackBerry App World. So, this news begs the question: “Will we see DejaOffice on the PlayBook?”
Well, we’re in the process of looking into it. Bringing DejaOffice to the PlayBook would allow you to sync tasks and memos in addition to contacts and calendars. It would also open the doors for USB sync and WiFi sync options. Stay tuned for more news as we explore this possibility!
Google Tasks can be great – they’re easy to use and tied to your existing Gmail or Google Apps account. It’s definitely convenient. Getting tasks out of Gmail or Google Apps, however, can be anything but convenient. Until now.
CompanionLink has supported syncing Google Tasks for some time, but it was limited to a single task list within Google. With our most recent update to CompanionLink 5, you are now able to sync multiple Google Task lists with Outlook and DejaOffice.
Here’s how it works.
If a task in Outlook has a category that matches a task list name in Google, then the Outlook task will sync to that list in Google. Similarly, if a task in Google has a task list name that matches a category in Outlook, then the Google task will sync to that category in Outlook.
Alternatively, if a task in Outlook does not have a category that matches a task list name in Google, then the Outlook task will sync to the default list in Google. If the opposite is true and a task in Google has a task list name that is not a category in Outlook, CompanionLink will create a matching category as part of the sync process.

It seems like it should just work. If you set up iCloud to sync with Outlook using Apple’s iCloud Control Panel and you’ve set up Google, Salesforce, or another CRM to sync with Outlook, it should all sync up nicely – right?
When you set up iCloud to sync with Outlook, the iCloud Control Panel creates a unique Outlook Folder, which it then uses to sync with iCloud. It will actually move items from your default Outlook Folder to this new iCloud Outlook Folder in order to facilitate the sync. This doesn’t really change how things look in Outlook, but it does change how things sync.
Many tools that sync CRM solutions such as Google and Salesforce are set to sync with only the default Outlook Folder, with no option to change this. Because iCloud is syncing with a different Outlook Folder, these two sync tools don’t work together. Fortunately, CompanionLink is different.
CompanionLink allows you to choose which Outlook Folder(s) you want to sync with. So if you want to sync Google with Outlook and iCloud, or Salesforce with Outlook and iCloud, it’s as easy as configuring CompanionLink to sync with the iCloud Outlook Folder. From there, any data synced from sources like Google or Salesforce will sync through iCloud to your iOS devices and any other PC or Mac that iCloud is configured on.
For details on configuring which Outlook Folder(s) to sync with in CompanionLink, see our Configuring Outlook support article.
With over 25 changes, CompanionLink build 5008 is a big update. We have been hard at work improving the software to bring you an even better sync. Our latest update focuses on refining the process, eliminating duplicates, and adding a few new features. Read on to learn what we’ve done. Continue reading

Great news for those of you using Windows Live and Outlook: Sync via Windows Live is now in beta! As you might expect, it works like our Sync via Google option: just put in your Windows Live credentials and we’ll wirelessly sync Contacts, Calendars, and Tasks from Outlook to Windows Live. From there, the data syncs down to your Windows Phone 7 or any other device configured with your Windows Live account.
This feature is currently in beta, but you can try it for yourself today by downloading the latest build of CompanionLink 5 (build 5004). When you select Windows Phone 7 as your device, you’ll see Sync via Windows Live as one of the sync options. Just follow the prompts from there and you’ll be set to begin syncing with Outlook or any other CRM system we support.
I should note that you can also opt to sync directly to Windows Live by selecting “No Device – Sync with Windows Live – BETA”. This allows you to sync Outlook to any device that your Windows Live account is set up on. And it’s not just Outlook – you can sync ACT!, Lotus Notes, Salesforce, and more with our new Sync via Windows Live option! So go ahead and get started today.
We’d love to get your feedback on Windows Live sync! Send us a message at email@example.com or leave a comment below!
It’s not all that uncommon anymore to have a both a smartphone and a tablet. We’re integrating these powerful mobile devices into our everyday workflow, and we need them to stay in sync. To help you keep up to date on all your devices, we created the “Profiles” feature, now found in CompanionLink Express and Professional 5.
Profiles allow you to create unique sync settings for all of your different devices. In CompanionLink Express 5, you can create 2 Profiles; in CompanionLink Professional 5, you can create 5. Creating a Profile is easy – just click the Profiles button in the upper right corner of CompanionLink and select “Manage Profiles.” From there, you can add a new Profile, name it, and customize the sync settings.
Whenever you want to switch profiles, just click the Profiles button, then select your desired Profile. CompanionLink will automatically adjust your configuration to match the settings you entered when creating that profile.
Profiles make managing multiple devices easy and efficient. They’re perfect for those of us with a smartphone and a tablet. If you’d like to start using Profiles, but don’t own CompanionLink Express or Professional 5, you can upgrade or download a free trial today!
If you haven’t heard already, Samsung has announced the long-awaited Galaxy Nexus. The Galaxy Nexus will be the first phone to feature the newest edition of Android – Ice Cream Sandwich. For many users, this will be the biggest reason to get the phone. That said, the Galaxy Nexus packs enough power to compete with the DROID RAZR on specs alone.
Of course, if you’re looking to sync the Galaxy Nexus with Outlook, ACT!, Salesforce, or any other CRM we support, you may be wondering if CompanionLink will be compatible with the new phone, and more importantly, Ice Cream Sandwich. The good news is that we’re already on the job. We intend to fully support the Galaxy Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwich at launch.
Update: We just got our Galaxy Nexus in the office and have begun testing it. It is working as expected, with the exception of USB sync. The Galaxy Nexus varies from other Android phones in that it has no SD card. As such, our standard USB sync method does not work. We are exploring our options, but in the meantime we recommend using WiFi, Secure Hosted Sync, or Sync via Google when syncing the Galaxy Nexus.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on our status here on the blog. In the meantime, take a look at the Galaxy Nexus’s specs below and spend some time deciding which one you want more: the Galaxy Nexus, or the recently announced DROID RAZR!
- 1.2GHz dual-core processor
- 4.65 HD Super AMOLED screen
- 1GB RAM
- 5-megapixel, 1080p camera; 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera
- 4G LTE data speeds on Verizon (US)
- NFC (Near Field Communication)
- Android 4.0
Look for the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon sometime next month!
