Known Issues
  • The drag/drop to the 'Follow Up' functionality is not available in eProductivity 1.8x versions which are based on an older mail template.  (This functionality is available in eProductivity version 2.x and above.)

Bug Fixes
  • Changing DueDate of an item automatically displayed on the 'Today' view now properly removes it from the view
  • When linking to existing actions the view is now expanded so that categorized documents may be seen
  • Linking email to existing project (which has an existing next action defined) no longer loses the next action flag causing the grey face to appear
  • Added error trap for rare situation in which user may attempt to flag an item in the 'Today' view that does not already have a 'Today' flag. Previously, this could result in a 'Remove from Today view?' dialog.

Changes to the BlackBerry AutoParser
(Note: These features may or may not be included in future versions)
  • AutoParser now supports Due Dates on 'Tickler' and 'Waiting For'
  • AutoParser now prefixes Due Date folders with "0" on 'Tickler' and 'Waiting For'
