Sync Outlook categories to your phone

Sync Outlook categories to iPhone and Android

Microsoft Outlook Categories provide a great way to organize a large amount of data by breaking things down into smaller, more manageable groups. Android, iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad users can benefit from this level of organization as well. Even a few hundred contacts, calendars, tasks, and notes synced to your device can be difficult to manage without using categories. Separating data into manageable groups is a key factor for mobile productivity. Additionally, color-coded categories enable you to interpret data at a glance. All this equates to you being more productive while mobile.

CompanionLink for Outlook, combined with the free DejaOffice app for Android and Apple devices, allows users to map Outlook Categories to their devices. This process not only preserves existing Outlook categories, but the colors you've assigned to each category as well.
