What's new in Daylite 4.2?

Daylite 4.2

New Features

New Sync Indicator

  • Not only has the sync engine been improved, we've also added a Sync Indicator. It is located in the top right hand corner of the Daylite window, just beside the full screen button. Similar to Mail app, the indicator will not be visible if everything is working as expected, however if an issue is detected, you will see the connection lightening bolt icon. Clicking on that icon will produce a popover with relevant information regarding the issue. The sync icon also has the ability to turn red with an exclamation mark when a more serious issue is detected. Based on the issue you receive, you will notice a link to a support article in the popover.

Duplicate Checker

  • You can now find duplicate people and companies using the Edit -> Find Duplicate Contacts menu item
  • You can specify a master record and them combine multiple records into the master. We try our best to move the data into the appropriate places. If there is a conflict or an unknown situation, a note describing the issue will be added to the selected master record.

  • You can now run Daylite, DMA and Daylite Server Admin in German or French
  • The interface and reports have been localized
