exclamation Stickies ExSync - Synchronize your Stickies v1.3d
« Thread started on: Feb 25th, 2012, 4:39pm »

Hello everybody,

as a lot of other fans of the "Stickies" I was searching for a way to synchronize my stickies with other computers and devices.

Since I am using Microsoft Outlook in combination with a Microsoft Exchange Server account quite a lot and everywhere I focused on that.
So before you read on, this ONLY works if you got an email account on an Microsoft Exchange Server >= 2007.

To solve my issue I developed an application which can be used with any stickies version >=v7 and implements itself fully into it.


What the "Stickies ExSync" does:

Stickies ExSync connects via push directly to your MS Exchange account and synchronizes all stickies you create or change into it as NOTES. Consequently, those notes are available in your MS Outlook or on your android phone or what ever synchronizes with your Exchange account as well.
Moreover when you change some notes in your Outlook (or what ever other application) are reflected back to your desktop stickies.
e.g. Imagine to create a new note on your android phone which pops up at the same time on your computer as sticky.

Version 1.3a brings a new feature to ExSync. Now also tasks from Outlook/Exchange are can be synced to the desktop as stickies as well as you are able to create new stickies as tasks.
That way the possibilities of ExSync are increased significantly.
(RESYNC is necessary when using the new version.)

Disclamer

This Stickies ExSync comes "as is". Which means, you are using it on your own risk and no support is provided.


Anyway, if you have got any suggestions or if you find any bugs feel free to post it here, I will try to take care as much as possible.

NEW VERSION !! 1.3d
The new version is now online with some bug fixes only(see readme)
Download: http://www.zhornsoftware.co.uk/stickies/tools/exsync.zip
Please read the readme file included for the manual.

CHANGES
v1.2a
- New interaction method with the stickies API (more secure and reliable)
- Desktop Stickies now automatically change their colours according to the category used in your exchange account (only if categories are selected to be used)
- New functionality to change the stickies category. (See right click menu)

v1.2b
- Fixed Bugs:
- When a sticky is created and deleted while ExSync was not connected, the wrong entry is removed from the offline log
- Fixed some category issues when creating stickies offline and syncing later
- Fixed an application exit issue on Windows XP Systems when closing stickies
- Fixed that the category settings are not saved wrong while the application is offline

v1.2c
- Fixed Bugs:
- Entered information is now synchronized direct and correct after creating a new sticky
- Added possibility to assign several categories for each sticky within the application and also remove them all

v1.3a
- Added new feature to synchronize Tasks from Exchange with sticky notes as well. A new option was added to create stickies as tasks.
- Information like sticky class (Note or Task) as well as the categories assigned are stored in the userstring1 of stickies api now.

##### !!! Due to the major changes in the application a full resync of all stickies is necessary !!! #####

v1.3b
- Fixed Bugs:
- Tasks containing URLs in their text will not cause the synchronization process to hang anymore.
- Corrected version number to 1.3b

##### !!! It is recommendat to perform a full resync of the stickies !!! #####

I hope this helps somebody else as well as me.

Cheers,
Ludwig

Hi Ludwig,

my company uses Exchange 2010. I have entered the url set in my outlook profile. Unfortunately the connection fails without any further information.
I the status bar the text "Connecting..." ist displayed.

Are there any typical known mistakes a new user usually makes?

Thanks

Thomas

Hi Thomas,

first of all, sorry for the late response, but I do not check out this forum so often.

The url set in your outlook profile is not necessarily the correct one as here sometimes the internal url of the server is displayed, depending on your companies configuration.
However, the correct url to use is that one that you would use when accessing your account through OWA via webbrowser.
e.g. https://yourcompany.de/owa. in this case you should use "yourcompany.de" as url in ExSync.

In order to get further information you can tick the checkbox "Enable Exchange Connection logging" on the "Logging" tab before pressing the "connect" button and see what messages are produced there.

Hope this information helps you and I am happy to hear from you again !

Cheers,
Ludwig

Hi Thomas,

glad to hear that everything is fine now.

Just saw that it is not really clear from the sample "mail.contoso.com" on the options window to use the owa address of the server. I might change that in future....

I've noticed a bug. Each line of text gets a space added to the end of it. Minor, but annoying!

question ExSync development with new releases of Stickies?
« Reply #8 on: Jul 29th, 2017, 09:38am »

Is anyone using ExSync Rel ?.?? with Stickies 9.0d successfully?

Does anyone know if SomethingCreative is keeping up with ExSync testing & development with new releases of Stickies? The last entry I read under Stickies>->Tools->ExSync was: "Also available is an alpha release of ExSync 1.3e (September 2015) which support Stickies 8. Find both downloads below."

A continued support statement should be published so that Users of Stickies can avoid potential issues.
