Viira Outlook Add-In, PC App Hotfix 5.4.3 released

Filed under: Viira Desktop Client, Viira Outlook Suite, Viira Sync, cloud — admin @ 7:14 am

Over the last week we rolled out a couple of important/significant fixes to the Viira Sync product and we would like to announce it to everyone  The fixes affect the Viira Outlook Add-In and PC App and are available in version 5.4.3.

Here is what the fix addresses:

  1. In certain European locales (Germany, Slovenia and others) the Viira Outlook Add-In and the Viira PC App did not transmit task dates correctly because the Windows environment was overriding the Viira date encoding. This resulted in day tasks having incorrect dates when transmitted via the Viira Sync service and synced to Viira on BlackBerry 10. Tasks with due dates in the future appeared incorrectly as overdue.
  2. On some computers the Viira Outlook Add-In trial appears to end even though the Add-In is run the first time. Restarting the Outlook Add-In or installing the 5.4.3 update will fix this.

The latest version 5.4.3 fixes both issues and can be downloaded from the Viira downloads page.

Viira 5.4.1 Released: Deeper BlackBerry 10 Calendar Integration, Outlook 2013 Stability And Various Fixes

Filed under: Viira, Viira Desktop Client, Viira Outlook Suite, Viira Sync — admin @ 5:45 am

We just released released version 5.4.1 of Viira for BlackBerry 10, the Viira Outlook Add-In and the Viira PC App. The release introduced deeper calendar integration on your BlackBerry 10, introduces better performance on Outlook as well as stability improvements for Outlook 2013 and contains a few bug fixes

Here is what is new in version 5.4.1:

Viira for BlackBerry 10

  • Deeper Calendar Integration: you can now delete and edit an existing calendar event directly from the Viira Day View
  • Bug fix: Calendar events in Day View always appear sorted by starting time, with the earlier ones first
  • Bug fix: creating a calendar appointment from the Viira Day View create the appointment under the calendar specified Settings
  • Bug fix: Backup/restore correctly backs up and restore task, project and context notes. Backup/Restore also correctly backs up/restore email and file task attachments.[This is a good place for a reminder that the Backup/Restore only applies to those who use Viira as a standalone app on their BlackBerry 10. Those who use the Viira Sync Service have automatic cloud-based backup]

Viira Outlook Add-In

  • Stability improvements for MS Outlook 2013 and Windows 8. We have addressed the Outlook 2013 Add-In limitations so that the Viira Outlook Add-In works smoothly on Outlook 2013 in particular in combination with Windows 8/8.1.
  • Outlook 2013 fix: restored the “Create Viira Task” context with which email and contact task get created.
  • Performance improvements: due to enhanced data architecture you should notice a more responsive UI even if there is a sync going on in the background.

Viira PC App

  • Performance improvements: due to enhanced data architecture you should notice a more responsive UI even if there is a sync going on in the background.

You can download the latest release from the Viira downloads page.

For all of you who would like to have access to your Viira data from your computer or laptop, we are introducing the new Viira Desktop Client. You can download it from the Viira cloud sync beta page.

Built to use the Viira cloud sync service and to sync through the cloud, the Viira Desktop Client offers the same powerful GTD-centric functions like projects, contexts, day tasks, reminders, next actions to name a few. And with the Viira cloud sync service you can instantly sync with Viira on your BlackBerry 10 and the Viira Outlook Plugin inside Microsoft Outlook.

Here are some cool new workflows that the Viira Desktop Client makes possible:

  • Review projects created on an Outlook desktop from a laptop
  • Enter a bunch of tasks and projects from the Viira Desktop Client, further organize them from Outlook
  • Create a task with a reminder on the Viira Desktop Client. Using the Viira sync service the reminder automatically appears in your BlackBerry and Outlook calendars.
