People who rely on Microsoft Outlook to manage their business life and clients are often dismayed at the poor Outlook-integration options available for Android devices. If you have an Exchange Server, integration of contact and calendar is easy. You are still stuck with Notes and Tasks. If you are a small business and working with a standalone version of Outlook, then you are really stuck because there is no Outlook app for Android.
There are disjoint tools available on Google Play that handle one kind of data really well – such as a great calendar app or a reliable tasks app. However, business people don’t want to juggle between contacts, tasks, notes, and calendar apps built by different vendors. They want a single Outlook app for Android that allows data to work intuitively together, so calendar appointments and notes are linked to people in their contact list; category colors match up between PC Outlook and Outlook on Android; and notes on clients made on their Android sync up nicely to Outlook on their PC. This type of workflow matches their use of Outlook on the PC.
DejaOffice is best Outlook app for Android
DejaOffice CRM is an app suite built to replicate standalone Outlook on Android devices. It does everything that Outlook supports – multiple calendar, categories, reminders, contacts, notes, journal entries, and multiple task lists with priorities. It doesn’t do email; that is still handled by your Android’s email client.
The app is a free download from Google Play. It comes with a tablet-mode setting for dual-pane views that utilize the larger screen space.
Advanced Outlook features are now available on Android
Here’s a list of some advanced features that DejaOffice supports that power Outlook users will appreciate.
- Link contacts to calendar appointments, tasks, notes, and journal.
- Color categories that match Outlook on your PC.
- Sort contact list by File As setting in Outlook.
- Group by Company
- Search by any Outlook field – contacts, contact notes, address, phone number, email address, etc.
- Day, week, month, list, and year views with recurring patterns that match Outlook
- Task list with priorities that match Outlook (High, Medium, Low). You can also use other styles like Franklin Covey, Getting Things Done, Take Back Your Life, and Palm Desktop.
Great news for Windows Phone users who wanted the security of USB synchronization of business data. The latest version of CompanionLink for Outlook has USB Sync to Windows Phone 8 devices like Lumia, Ativ, Ascend, and HTC 8X/8S.
You need two components for USB Sync:
- CompanionLink PC software (paid)
- DejaOffice app for WP8 (free)
CompanionLink synchronizes Windows Phone with standalone Outlook contacts, calendar, tasks, and notes. (Support for Outlook Categories coming in a few weeks!) Our USB Sync is designed to restore the traditional wired sync feature that shipped with older Windows mobile handhelds. Just connect your Lumia, Ativ, or HTC Windows Phone to your PC and CompanionLink handles the rest.
The synchronization works with our free DejaOffice app for WP8 that integrates with WP8’s People app. The Outlook Contacts, Calendar, Tasks, and Notes that DejaOffice holds work with phone features like Caller ID, email, maps, and text messaging.
The future of Customer Relationship Management (CRM) lies in the Cloud. Google, Microsoft and many other prolific tech companies offer Cloud storage as well as related web-based business solutions. Salesforce is clearly the leader in purely Cloud based CRM solutions. They offer a professional, communication oriented solution tailored for the information age, free from bloatware and lengthy software install procedures. A quick glance through their website will reveal the prominently displayed slogan “No Software!” It should come as no surprise, then, that Salesforce’s entire business model is web based. The drawback of this is obvious: the Salesforce Android app is not particularly robust or as functional as the Salesforce website. DejaOffice, the free mobile CRM app from CompanionLink, is a great alternative for Salesforce users seeking a solution custom tailored for the Android experience.
How Does DejaOffice Compare to the Salesforce Android app?
The DejaOffice advantage is clear. The first thing presented to you upon launching DejaOffice for the first time is a user-friendly Setup Wizard. Compare this with the ominous license agreement you see as soon as your open the Salesforce Android app, and you’ll see that DejaOffice is designed to be easy to use and intuitive from the very beginning. Additionally, the Salesforce Android app demands that you enter your passcode every time you launch it, which quickly becomes a tedious ritual. Finally, the Salesforce Android app is only free for 30 days!
The DejaOffice Advantage
- DejaOffice synchronizes and integrates with the native Android address book
- No required fields during the creation of contacts and events
- Multiple calendar views are available
- No mandatory passcode that you must enter, upon app launch
- DejaOffice has free technical support via phone and web, even without a license
If you want a mobile CRM which seamlessly syncs with Salesforce and takes advantage of all that the Android platform has to offer, look no further than DejaOffice.
Email accounts (and related services) are all about communication. Companies both large and small depend on contact lists, calendar entries, and tasks within programs such as Microsoft Outlook for effective communication and time management. It is essential for this communication to extend beyond one application – and even beyond computers as a platform. In this day and age, smartphones, tablets, PDAs, and phablets have become essential tools of communication with customers and co-workers, thanks to companies such as Google. So, how do you sync Gmail with Outlook?
All Syncs are Not Created Equal
For users who prefer a free, albeit very limited Google to Outlook synchronization process, there are a few solutions. It is possible to set up a new IMAP account within Microsoft Outlook, which can be connected with a Gmail account. However, this does not support full synchronization of existing Outlook data. Instructions for this process can be found here. A free program named Contacts Sync also exists, but “it appears to ignore Gmail entries without data in the last-name or e-mail fields,” according to Dennis O’Reilly of CNET. Neither of these free work-arounds appear to be a viable solution for business-oriented environments, in which data integrity is of critical importance.
Additionally, Google recently discontinued its free offering of its App Sync, which has left many people wondering what the best way is to sync Gmail with Outlook. Though this option is still available for paid users of Google Apps for Business, this may be cost prohibitive at $50 per year for every user.
Sync Gmail with Outlook via CompanionLink
- CompanionLink was designed for professionals who require functionality, reliability and performance.
- No changes to your existing Outlook account are needed.

These facts and more make CompanionLink for Google the clear choice for your sync!
Q: What’s a task list without priorities?
A: Just a list.
Let’s just say the late Dr. Stephen Covey might not approve of this.
BlackBerry 10 ships with an app called Remember that nicely organizes notes and tasks in one slick app. Think “Evernote meets [plug in any of the millions of Tasks apps available]”.
But the Remember app misses the mark on one key principle of any task management philosophy – prioritizing tasks!
The Remember app groups things into notebook icons. Each “notebook” can hold items like photos, lists, tasks, and web links. But the treatment for Tasks is like a plain text note – there are no task-focused features like priorities, recurring tasks, or task alerts.
Microsoft Outlook users will especially find this confusing because Outlook ships with task-focused features out-of-the-box. In fact, these features are what makes “task management” philosophies work because they require you to take a large set of things to do and organize them by priority. Task management = prioritization.
If you want a Task Manager that works lock-step with your Outlook Tasks – including Task Priorities, Categories, and Alarms – download the free DejaOffice app for BlackBerry 10.
CompanionLink will support Galaxy S4 Outlook sync from day one. Because most Galaxy devices do not ship with reliable Outlook sync software, CompanionLink’s products are used by thousands to synchronize Outlook contacts, calendar, tasks, notes, journal, categories, and contact photos with Galaxy devices like SIII and SIV.
CompanionLink already supports all Galaxy phones and tablets, including the popular S III. With the Galaxy S IV, CompanionLink extends their support of Samsung’s most popular line of smartphones for people using standalone Microsoft Outlook or other CRM tools like Salesforce CRM, ACT!, Lotus Notes, and Palm Desktop.
Multiple options for S4 Outlook sync
- USB sync
- DejaCloud push sync
- Wi-Fi sync
- Sync to Gmail or Google Apps
CompanionLink multiple protocols for S4 Outlook sync. Traditional USB sync is for those who prefer to connect their S4 with their PC. DejaCloud push sync is for those who desire a hands-free and over-the-air experience. DejaCloud is a new service offered by CompanionLink with emphasis on a private business cloud that does not sell or advertise users data like other large organizations. This service is for people focused on data security between Outlook and S4 devices.
- CompanionLink for Outlook
- Microsoft Outlook 2000 or higher

The most reliable way to sync Gmail contacts with Outlook is to set up a system that automatically keeps both sides synchronized. If you add, delete, or edit a contact recording in Outlook or Gmail, the changes are synchronized automatically.
Software options to sync Gmail contacts with Outlook
CompanionLink for Google is a low-cost product designed to sync Gmail contacts with Outlook. It goes beyond just contacts though. CompanionLink will also sync:
- Outlook Categories with Google Contact Groups
- Contact photos
- Outlook Calendar with Google Calendar
- Outlook Tasks with Google Tasks
An “Auto Sync” setting lets you set CompanionLink to automatically interface with Google every 5 minutes. You can also set the time intervals to longer periods.
You may find other free options available. Pay close attention to which versions of Outlook they work with, whether or not they collect or advertise your data, and if the software requires special Outlook set up so Outlook doesn’t consider access to Outlook Contacts a malicious attempt.
Also key in your decision is to see if software is backed by phone support. Business-class software to sync Gmail contacts with Outlook should come with free phone support.
People who use Microsoft Outlook for business rely on the Outlook Notes feature. Insurance agents, for example, will use Outlook Notes to document details about each claim. Outlook Notes can be attached to an Outlook Contact record, letting agents search for a contact and quickly see the notes they’ve made. Agents can also sync Outlook Notes with Android phones and tablets using CompanionLink.
Steps to sync Outlook Notes with Android
- Download CompanionLink for Outlook. It’s free to try for 14 days.
- Configure it to sync Android with Microsoft Outlook. Make sure the Outlook Notes checkbox is checked.
- Click the Sync button.
