Axel wrote previously about how EssentialPIM fits into his life (The Eagle and EPIM Both Land Successfully). As with all of us, time and conditions—like the COVID pandemic—change our habits. In this post, Axel catches us up on how he is adapting and shares a dream he has for the future.
In a previous post, I wrote about having a tablet as my EPIM data center, a smartphone as its companion, and my Windows notebook for backup.
This has changed, as time goes by!
The new version of EssentialPIM Pro and Free 9.10.8 is available for download starting today! It includes some improvements related to synchronization with Google Contacts and Google Calendar, it now also offers you an ability to add any number of online calendar (iCal) subscriptions into the program (File->Subscriptions->Add Calendar Subscription), search and overall performance is improved for the Notes module and there’s also a number of other minor fixes and improvements. The detailed list of changes is on the Version History page.
This update is free for all EssentialPIM Pro users who have the 9.10.x series version of EPIM installed, regardless of their regular license (includes 1 year of free updates) expiration date. The updates are always free for the lifetime license users.
For downloads, visit the Get EPIM page or wait a bit till EssentialPIM automatically notifies you about the update.

Those who use word processors say styles are one of the most powerful tools in these applications. EssentialPIM is not a word processor, but its Notes module does have this important feature. In this post, we'll look at how styles work in EPIM and can help your writing.
We would like to announce the release of EssentialPIM 9.10.5. It comes with a handful of improvements and fixes. Some of the Improvements include better visibility of active tabs for notes and tasks, quick print for items from the Today module, tweaks regarding synchronization with Outlook 365 and Google Contacts, more correct functioning of the Sent Later feature in mail and adding new email accounts to EPIM is much easier now with the improved email setup wizard. The detailed list of changes can be found on the Version History page.
To check whether the update has already reached you, click on Help->Check for Updates from EPIM or wait till the app automatically notifies you about availably of the new version. Manual updates are also possible form the Get EPIM page.
I have three EssentialPIM databases that I want available to some extent on five devices. In this post, I want to describe my solutions, ask for your feedback, and tell a few things I've learned about synchronization.
Here is my situation. I have a database for writing, another for special projects, and one for work. My writing and projects use Notes; my work database is my personal information manager (PIM) where I use all of EPIM's modules, except mail. Tasks and the Calendar are particularly important because these join my work and personal activities.
I want access to my writing and special projects on three personal Windows devices: desktop, laptop, and notebook. My PIM is on my remote Windows desktop at work but I want it available on my desktop and its calendar on my smartphone.
Here are the solutions I've come up with.
- Optimized EPIM data backup and restore experience
- Improved synchronization of notes with Windows EPIM
- No more fingerprint request upon EPIM’s stat (if not set otherwise in options) for devices with under-display fingerprint sensor
- Auto-conversion of text to links setting now works for all types of data
- New tasks coming from Google will be automatically displayed in EPIM’s calendar if the “show in calendar” option is enabled in tasks settings
- URLs will be clickable in custom fields, as well
- Minor performance and stability improvements
As always, please keep in mind that you might get this release through the auto update feature in couple of days only as it’s being distributed in stages.
We announce the immediate availability of EssentialPIM 9.10. New features include:
Send later (in Mail)*
You now have the ability to write an email and schedule it to be sent out by EPIM at your specified date and time in the future. This will bring the deliverability of your emails at a time when you are not available or when it's more convenient for your recipients from different time zones.
