News and Updates About EssentialPIM
Keep up on the latest news and insights
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.
Help and the F1 key have been longstanding companions in Windows applications, including EssentialPIM. However, EPIM severs this tie as of its newest release, v9.9.7.
The F1 key is now available as a custom shortcut that you can assign by going to Menu: Tools > Options > Shortcuts. If you can't shake old habits and want to keep F1 as Help, don’t despair. F1 will continue to bring up help unless you assign it to another function. Help is also available through Menu: Help > Help Contents.
This innovation is an opportunity to explore another function key whose role recently expanded.
We are pleased to announce yet another 9.9.x series release of EssentialPIM 9.9.7. With this new release we mostly focused on fixing known issues and improving overall performance and stability of the program. Couple of new features were also added. The detailed list of changes is as always available on the Version History page.
EssentialPIM will automatically notify you about the new version within the next couple of days. Although, you can update manually by downloading the new version from the Get EPIM page. Update to this version of EssentialPIM Pro is free for you if you already have one of the 9.9.x series version installed regardless of your 1-year of free updates license expiration date.
Three releases of EssentialPIM 9.9 appeared in June, offering several enhancements and some new features across the modules. We're up to v9.9.6, tantalizingly close to the release of EssentialPIM 10.
Let's take a look at some of what EPIM 9.9 has brought.
We would like to announce the immediate availability of the Pro and Free versions of EssentialPIM 9.9.6. This is more of a maintenance and bug fix release with some additional focus made on improving synchronization with Google services (Contacts, Tasks), OneDrive and on working with EPIM database files through Dropbox. Some behind the scenes improvements were also included in the release. Check out the detailed list of changes on the Version History page.
Update will reach you automatically in couple of days. If you wish to download and install the new version manually, please do that from the Get EPIM page.
Recently I read an article about how to make one’s footprint more green and it described ways to reduce energy consumption when using the internet. One example it reported is a provider who set up servers in the tower of a wind turbine to get electricity at the source, saving its transfer over great distances with lots of lost energy.
When reading this, I thought that everybody can do something. As always, many small consumers can make huge changes when we work together.
So I experimented with an idea.
We are pleased to announce the EssentialPIM (Pro and Free) 9.9 version release. First and foremost, the new version offers the following new features: All Inboxes folder in Mail, ability to sync the EPIM Pro Business edition data with the server while being away from the local network over the Internet, synchronization of your notes with OneDrive, more secure authorization for Office 365 mail accounts, line numbers in Notes, updated sync with Google Contacts and many more. Further, like most EssentialPIM releases, this one also comes with a number of existing features improvements and fixes. The full and detailed changelog is on the Version History page.
The new version can be downloaded and installed manually from the Get EPIM page, you should also get automatic update availability notification from your copy of EssentialPIM within the next couple of days.
Update to EssentialPIM Pro 9.9 is free for all the lifetime license owners and for the regular licenses if they were purchased on or after the June 1st, 2020. For license renewal and upgrade options, please see the Pricing page.
