Dates before 1940

 

Ecco does not accept dates prior to 1940, and I recall that was an issue for me when I used Ecco more seriously a few years ago.  Now back using the latest EccoPro and EccoExt -- has anybody found a workaround for the date limitation?

Basic EccoPro Calendar/PhoneBook queries

 

I used Ecco for many years, then gave it away for most things and have only just started reusing it with EccoExt (on Windows 8.1 64-bit).  But I'm having trouble remembering how I set some things up earlier.  I hope these explanations are clear and that someone can get me back on the straight and narrow.

First -- in my PhoneBook, I have many subitems where the item text contains a name and the Birthday column has a date (say 19/11/1943) in it.  In my Calendar view, there's a Birthdays heading in the Ticklers section and the item text from the PhoneBook appears with date 19/11/2014 and Recurrence "Every 19 Nov".  I can't for the life of me figure out how to get newly added birthday subitems in the PhoneBook to appear in the Calendar -- obviously, I used to be able to do it and I'm sure there is a very simple answer.

Second -- I have a Work Plan Notepad where one of the columns is Start Date.  When I have no filter applied to the PhoneBook view, all items from the Work Plan appear in the Ticklers section of the PhoneBook under the heading Start Dates.  But when I apply a simple filter to show only recent Start Dates, all other data in the PhoneBook view (ie, other Ticklers and all Appointments) disappear.  What am I missing?

Re: Re: New MyPhoneExplorer Ecco Edition Released

 

I was going to post what is below, but the tried the sync without EccoExt and it worked. So as it is I have to close Ecco / EE, then sync, then close vanilla Ecco and restart with EE. Is there any chance it could be got to work with EE in the first place? After all, calendar and contacts sync doesn't mind EE...

Thanks!

-------------------------------------

Definitely doesn't work for me:

In Ecco, press enter to create new TLI in synced notepad, call it "L1", for example. Create two subitems, "L2a", "L2b". Sync with phone. On phone, open respective note and add third subitem "L2c" or edit name of any of above items. Sync again, in confirmation dialog (with "Force phone -> Ecco" or "Sync both" enabled - I've tried both) select "Use Entry from Phone" for the item. Confirm. Result: no changes at all in Ecco notepad.

I've tried different stuff in Ecco (e.g. fold / unfold, restart), but still no change. I'm using Ecco with EE 4.6.7.4...

I had no problems changing the text of a sub-item on the phone and have it synced back to Ecco to the proper sub-item. Make sure you have "Show confirmation window before MyPhoneExplorer makes any changes" check-marked and then "Use Entry from Phone" and Sync mode: "Force phone -> Ecco" or "Sync both".

Many thanks, Friedhelm, this is excellent news.

Can you please verify that editing items existing in the synced notepad / folder in Ecco on the phone does not allow the changes to be synced back into Ecco? In my testing, I couldn't do that (e.g. change the item text in Ecco for an existing item by modifying on the phone).

What I could do successfully was sync items with subitems from Ecco to the phone and also to create new TLIs with subitems on the phone and sync them back to Ecco.

Thanks!

Formatting a number column

 

A simple question -- is it possible to format a number column so that all values (including, particularly, those that are whole numbers) are shown to 1 decimal place? 

I also notice that, even if formatted to 2 decimal places by the standard format '0.00', whole numbers (eg, 84) are shown with no decimal places (ie, 84 not 84.00) although other numbers (eg, 83.7) are formatted correctly (ie, 83.70).  Is there a way to fix it so that all numbers are shown to 2 decimal places as specified?

Re: [ecco_pro] Re: FW: How to change text for one recurring appointment?

 

Thanks, r634718 -- I think you're right.  On further testing, I've found that the dialog box only appears if you change the date or time of an event or if you try to delete it.  Unfortunately, it does not appear (for me) when you change the text -- and, yes, that is what I would like it to do.  For example, I have an untimed daily recurring appointment where the text is "Weather" and at the end of day I'd like to change that text (for that day only) to say something about that day's weather.

Does anyone have a workaround for this type of text change?  I'm thinking I'll just have to forget the recurrence feature and copy the item forward for every day to, for example, the end of the month.

To get this dialog to appear, I think you have to change the date or time of the selected event.  I don't believe changing the text will generate this dialog because as I explained above I don't think you can use it for this.  Try, for example, changing the start and end time of one instance of a recurring item and it should trigger this dialog.  But again, I don't think that is what you are after as AFIK you can't do it with the text of the item, only dates and times.


***Please let me know if I am wrong about the item text part because I would love to be able to do this myself if it is possible somehow!  But AFIK I don't think it is.

Re: FW: How to change text for one recurring appointment?

 

That's great, Luther, although I don't seem to be able to get all the way yet.  I usually work in the Week Calendar View and the R-click Modify.... option only seems to appear in the Month Calendar View.  That's not a problem -- I can easily switch views when I need the Modify.... option.

More importantly, however, I do not get the Change Recurring Event? dialog box when I click OK in the Modify.... box.  I've tried several types of changes but it just never appears.  What do others see?  Does anyone know what makes that second dialog box appear or not appear?  I'm using Ecco 4.01, EccoExt v4.6.6.1 on Windows 8.1 64-bit.

Perhaps I did not understand your posting because as far as I know, any time one right clicks on a recurring item in the ECCO calendar and selects "modify" it is possible to alter any element of that appointment's characteristics and as soon as you click "OK" you are asked (as in the below screen shot) if you want the change to apply to the "selected occurrence", "Future recurrences only" or "All recurrences".

 

It would seem that this feature should fit the bill.

After a long period of not using the Ecco Calendar (low memory problem), I'm just re-learning what I used to know well!

One of the things that used to annoy me was that the text of one recurring Appointment cannot be changed without also changing all the other recurrences.  Has any workaround been developed for that?  I hesitate to say this, but my wife has just pointed out that it can be done in Outlook, which gives you the option of a change being made for all recurrences or for this one only.

Recommendation

 

Over a year ago I joined up with you and purchased "something" to add to
Ecco to run on my XP machine. For reasons too complicated to explain, I
never really followed up with using Ecco.

I have now upgraded my computer to W7 and I have a new Android phone
with Verizon 4G service.

I have not installed Ecco on the W7 HD, but I still have the XP HD as a
secondary drive.

Is it possible for you to check my records of what I bought so you can
tell me what I need to do to get a fully functioning Ecco on my W7
machine, synched with my Android.

I realize this request is probably a PITA, so if you don't have time to
respond, I understand.

I was one of the original Ecco users, switching over from PackRat in
disgust. I still have an unopened PackRat 5 software purchase!!!

How to synchronize unlimited Ecco items to your Android device

 

        

How to synchronize unlimited Ecco Notepad items to your Android device

Picture 1
Picture 2

To support the EccoPro community over the last 17 years, we were always faced with adjusting our beloved software to new operating systems and with changes to all kind of handheld devices, necessary to take our information on the road. It started with the original Palm Pilot when Palm continued with webOS and the Palm Pre.

With the appearance of iPhones and Androids, HP, which just had purchased Palm decided to curtail webOS developers and the Palm Pre ended up in the junkyard of recyclers. HP’s webOS began with a fanfare but folded. The convenience of carrying our Ecco data was lost until last year when we with the help of our members published the Ecco Edition of MyPhoneExplorer.

Without the Ecco Source Code the development was not an easy task. An Ecco type application for Android or the iPhone was out of the question. We were guided by the original Ecco synchronization of the Palm Desktop which sadly had built-in limitations by displaying only a limited amount of Ecco Subitems on Palm Devices.

We knew native Android applications are not designed with Ecco's Subitem structure in mind. Ecco's most favorite feature "Outlining" could not be displayed. We had to stick with the original four Palm Synchronization Modules Phonebook (Contacts), Calendar, Tasks and Memos (Notes). To get more use of Memos or Notes I will show you here how to overcome TLI (Top Level Item) and Subitem limitations.



Picture 3

Open the Ecco "Folder Window". The original Palm Synchronization created three new folders under "New Columns", "Pilot Archive" (Folder Type: CheckMark), "Pilot No Notes" (Folder Type: CheckMark) and "Pilot Memos" (Folder Type: Pop-Up List). Let us change the name of the "Call Status" Folder (Folder Type: CheckMark, Picture 3) to "Action" and move/create three new folders with the names above and the same properties as Sub folders into the "Action" folder (see Picture 4).


Picture 4

In my example I changed the original "date" folders under "Action" -> "Call Back", "Left Msg" and "Last Call" to "Calls", "Re-call", "Reminders" and "Follow-ups". If you have not done so, I prefer the Tickler section on top, click Calendar -> Show Tickler Section on Top. If Columns don't show click on Column -> Show Columns.



Picture 5

Now click on Column -> Insert Column -> "Existing Column or Folder" and scroll down to click the "Action" folder (see Picture 5). Right-click the "Action" Column header -> Properties and choose "For each Item, cell displays: Sub Folders of "Action" that contain Item". In the Folder Window right-click "Pilot Memos" -> Properties and add "Pop-up values" like Business, Personal, Private or any of your choice. In MyPhoneExplorer on your Desktop click on File -> Settings -> Sync -> Notes (Sync with "Ecco") -> Advanced and under your Ecco Database choose the Folder "Pilot Memos" (see Picture 6).


Picture 6

Your Android phone's client of MyPhoneExplorer  offers you two beautiful Widgets, MPE Tasks and MPE Notes (see Picture 1). If you click the "Action" column next to any entry in Ecco's Calendar or in any Notepad and choose "Pilot Memos" (plus a choice of Pop-Up Value) you have a simple way to move TLIs and Subitems to your Android device. If used the next MyPhoneExplorer synchronization will transfer an unlimited amount of your TLIs and Subitems to MPE Notes. Tap the MPE Notes Widget and it will show you all Notes with the latest Note on top (see Picture 2).

You might also add the column "Pilot Memos" to the folder "Pilot Memos" (see Picture 7). It will show all your Pop-Up Values related to separate entries (see picture 7). Additionally, you might sort the column "Pilot Memos" to accommodate different projects.

Picture 7 - Pilot Memos Notepad View

Here is a Calendar view with the "Action" column at the right and the Folder Window to the left (Picture 8). To bypass the synchronization to your Android device you might archive your Pilot Memos by just clicking "Pilot Archive" in the "Action" column related to your Calendar entry. Do not forget to adjust your MyPhoneExplorer sync accordingly, don't use "Sync both" choose "Force Ecco -> phone" or the Android item will be synced back to Ecco's folder "Pilot Memos".
