    I should've tried eXtreme Agenda sooner, I really like this thing!

    Something else that I noticed (and like) about eXtreme Agenda, is that when choosing Calendar or Tasks from the Home screen, it displays the appropriate view (calendar, or tasks)!

    Papyrus never seemed to get that right.

    If I may make a couple of suggestions/observations regarding the Tasks component of eXtreme Agenda:

    1.) It seems that when entering extended notes for a task, line breaks aren't handled properly: when viewing the task's details it displays two boxes instead of moving text to next line

    2.) It would be awesome to be able to link a contact to a particular task - say I enter a task to "Call Jason when PC repairs are completed," his contact info could already be appended to the task so I wouldn't have look up his information seperately.

    3.) When selecting task start/due dates, a popup calendar to select date would be nice. For example, if I want to set a completion date for next Tuesday and I don't know the date off the top of my head, a popup calendar would make it easier to select the date.

    If eXtreme Agenda is already capable of these things and I'm just missing it, I apologize.. and just tell me to RTFM.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the input...

    1. I will look into this. It seems I had another report of this, but at some point it was put on the backburner... It is fixed it in the next release...

    2. Already Planned for next version.

    3. Already Planned for next version.

    I did not mention which one I bought. My main point was that people should take advantage of the free trials and see which package fits their own needs.

    I just wanted to let you know I purchased your software just now from Everything Q because of your support here. There is nothing better than to have direct access to the developer of an application you use daily.

    Now I'm off to install my new software. Thanks a bunch.

    Maybe I'm missing something, or maybe this is a limit of Outlook/Active Sync... buy why can't I find a way to invite other people to my meetings? I can set appointments for myself but I can't seem to add people to meetings via their email address or by selecting them from my contact list.

    Is this not something I can do or am I a big dummy and I'm missing it? :)

    We dont handle this right now but will look into it for future updates... As such Im not really sure if its a limitation, does the default application handle this?

    Another thing I'm curious about, is it possible to link directly to Extreme Agenda in the home screen XMS vs. seeing Outlook meeting notifications and when clicking on them being taken to Outlook and not Extreme Agenda? Is there some code I can insert into my XML you can share that will display meeting notices on the home screen and link to Extreme Agenda?

    Thanks!

    I've never found a way... with my Blackberry it was easy to do... but I've not been able to add anyone to a meeting with my Q since I got it.

    Having played with Extreme Agenda for an hour or so now I can honestly say its a VAST improvement over the default Outlook. It is worth every penny of the $15 price!

    Open eXtreme Agenda and from the main screen (for me it's month view) click "Menu" (right soft key) and select "Options".

    Find the check boxes under System Shortcuts for:
    Calendar to X Agenda
    Tasks to X Agenda
    Contact to X Agenda

    All of your shortcuts for the above items will now automatically link to X Agenda and not the default Outlook application. It required me to reboot the phone to get the Contacts and Tasks to link.

    Oh, and this is a suggested upgrade!! (Upgrades are free to registered users, just install the newest trial over your current version).

    It is as big if not bigger than the last major update of the competition's product, we just have bigger things coming so didn't pump up advertising it like we should have....Enjoy...
