Watch your productivity skyrocket with Tasks on Android

Many business professional rely on the “tasks” or “to-do” functions found in popular desktop software such as Microsoft Outlook to help keep themselves organized. Tasks are useful for prioritizing your day, or just keeping track of the things you don’t want to forget. Anyone who has read David Allen’s Getting Things Done will tell you that the key to time management is to organize your priorities on an external to-do list. This way, the brain has can better focus on the task at hand than on keeping track of all your tasks.

CompanionLink’s software for Android phones allows you to carry your tasks with you, ready to access at a moments notice. Users are able to sync tasks/to-dos from Outlook, Lotus Notes, ACT! by Sage, Novell GroupWise, Goldmine and Palm Desktop to an Android phone via a secure USB connection.

Power users who use categories to manage their Tasks on the desktop will be pleased to find that these categories sync across to the phone. With the powerful built-in search feature, managing hundreds of tasks is a breeze.

CompanionLink Support Notice for DEVOUR and CLIQ

Motorola DEVOUR and CLIQ use a technology called MOTOBLUR.  While our software syncs contact data correctly to these phones, MOTOBLUR impedes the “viewability” of the data so it appears that contacts have not synchronized over correctly.

We recommend all DEVOUR and CLIQ users sync their contacts wirelessly through Google using CompanionLink for Google and not via direct USB sync. We are currently working on a solution to the problem, and will post a notification once the fix is available.

We apologize for any inconvenience. Any questions or comments can be directed to support@companionlink.com
