Introducing DejaConnect – USB Syncing Now Easier Than Ever

Syncing via USB shouldn’t be complicated.

It used to be that you could you could just plug in your phone to the computer and it would automatically start syncing. Somewhere along the way, we lost that standard.

Sure, today’s devices can sync with the cloud out of the box. That works well for some, but many of us still need the good, old-fashioned security of a USB sync. With DejaConnect USB, we’re making that sync easier than ever.

DejaConnect allows you to simply plug in your device to begin a sync. That’s it. It really can’t get much easier than that.

The first sync with DejaConnect mode requires a brief setup. After that, it’s up to you whether it syncs automatically when you plug it in, or only after you press sync. With DejaConnect, sync just happens. You don’t have to think about it, or worry if you’re doing it right. We’ll take care of the heavy lifting and let you focus on what’s important to you.

DejaConnect mode is currently in beta and is available in CompanionLink 5 build 5026 and DejaOffice 2.1.5 for Android. Download the updates today (CompanionLink | DejaOffice) to try it out for yourself. And be sure to let us know what you think!

  1. I have been using Companion Link to sync with Outlook before the Ice Cream 4.0 update. Post update am unable to sync. Getting error message “using obsolete version of Android, versions earlier than 2.1 are not supported. Do I need to upgrade companion link as well?

  2. It seems to be a bug that some users experience. We’re looking into a fix, but in the meantime, have you tried following the steps found here:,_but_unable_to_connect_to_DejaOffice

  3. I just tried to install this for my HTC Droid Incredible 2 – upgraded to CompanionLink to build 5028, already on the correct DejaOffice.  The HTC drivers it told me to install included HTC Sync.  Instead of connecting automatically, I have to tell it to restart, and when it does I see an error that says “Found ADB Device but can’t connect.”  Is HTC Sync fighting with DejaSync?  At the moment I can’t sync at all and will have to go back to ordinary sync.

  4. When you select “DejaConnect USB” as your sync method (make sure you’re running CompanionLink 5026 or higher), you should see an option for auto sync in the Advanced Settings in CompanionLink. Let me know if you still don’t see it.

    As for the progress bar – are you referring to the phone or the computer?

  5. I don’t see autosync as an option on my companionlink 5 for outlook.
    Also, there isn’t a status and progress bar showing status of the sync which is not very nice.

  6. Autosync is a new feature we’ve brought to Android in this release. Are you referring to autosync on a non-Android device in CompanionLink 3?

  7. In Companionlink 3 you could set up autosync once you connect up to USB.  What’s new in this version?
