    I have recently switched to Key Suite. I am no longer able to effectively use TakePhone and 2Day, so I have removed them. I miss them and would like to suggest a future enhancement to allow them to work w/ Key Contacts.

    Same here....Both Takephone and 2Day are fantastic, but I need KeySuite to enhance the lame built in PIM fields...

    Maybe if you contact Chapura, they'd do the necessary work on their end. They already made KeySuite compatible with a number of Treo-specific apps that utilize the default contacts database--I'm sure they'd be happy to make their product compatible with other software if made aware of the demand.

    Hi,

    That's interesting !

    Can you give me an example of such apps ?

    For instance, when a phone call comes in, the Treo looks into the default contacts database to find the name of the caller. Before, Keysuite users would have to synchronize their data to both the proprietary Keysuite databases AND the default databases to get this caller ID lookup functionality to work.

    Somehow, the latest version of Keysuite causes this lookup to be redirected to the proprietary Keysuite databases. They definitely did not change the way the Treo application worked, hence they must have somehow redirected requests to the default database to their database. I don't see why this can't work for other applications?

    Also, searches for emails, numbers, etc. (such as from Snappermail, Handspring Mail, the Treo SMS program, etc.) all seem to go to the Keysuite databases now. Intriguing, eh?

    Now, if the same behaviour can be extended to the Calender and Tasks apps, we would be all set!

    Hi,

    Well - I imagine they were willing to go through some effort to allow their app to work on the Treo 600.

    Im afraid TAKEphONE is not as wide spread as the Treo 600 or SnapperMail, etc. though... (not yet...)

    So I would not count on them doing any work to allow integration.
    They were kind enough in the past to share some documentation with me to allow for lookup from TAKEphONE, but I had(/have) not time to deal with it...

    I still hope I will some day.

    Been using Takephone and 2day and I like both a lot, but they still don't seem to interface with KeySuite (contacts, tasks, calendars) which I bought when I was having big sync issues with Outlook.

    this thread is really old.. any suggestions?

    Hi,

    Old indeed.

    I guess there was not much demand for this, so I never had the time to start on this project...

    But, according to the Keysuite website http://www.chapura.com/keysuite.php
    "KeySuite Now Supports All Palm OS Messaging, Email and Phone Applications - KeySuite now gives you the option to synchronize your Outlook Contacts with both KeyContacts and the built-in Contacts application. This provides full integration and compatibly with all messaging, email, and phone applications. You enable this feature by clicking on the HotSync Manager | Custom | KeyContacts | and checking ôSynchronize Built-In Application."

    Doesn't this resolve the issue of using TakePhone with Keysuite data?

    Yes - it should.

    That's great news.

    I'll give it a try for contacts.. but this won't help with KeyDates (calender).

    works for me. that is how i use it. Basically KS also populates the standard database and TP works great this way. you just use more memory this way.

    I am very happy to use KeyContacts with TakePhone....so glad it works!!

    However, there is one shortcoming. If I find a contact in TakePhone and select "open" I get the following error msg "Unable to open folder. This folder (v.1) is only compatible with KeyContacts version(s) *Invalid*"

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Afraid you'll have to ask the KeyContacts developers about this. I believe they are the ones who display this message.
