What is new in SimplyTag v3¶
Welcome to SimplyTag v3.
We have added loads of new features and enhancements, many of them at the request of customers like you!
Read on to learn how version 3 makes the product, on which you have come to rely for tagging, categorizing and organizing Outlook email messages, even more powerful.
The first thing you will notice about the new version is the updated button icons, which look great on the modern high-resolution monitors and fit nicely with the rest of the Outlook UI.
However, that is just the icing on the new version cake. Read on for the rest of the great features we have prepared for you.
Official support for Outlook 2019¶
Version 3 now officially supports Outlook 2019. Office 365 is also fully supported with the desktop version of Outlook.
Discontinued support for Outlook 2007¶
Outlook 2007 is no longer supported.
Export / Import Outlook Categories¶
We have introduced Export and Import Categories commands.
You can use it to share categories with your colleagues (or even to back up your own tags). The Ultimate edition supports auto-import, so your colleagues do not have to do anything to keep up to date with shared tags.
Improved QuickTag typeahead filtering¶
Starting in v3, the QuickTag supports the same flexible typeahead filtering as QuickPick in our best-selling SimplyFile product. You can type multiple space-separated word fragments to zoom in on the right category with just a few keystrokes.
Select Mailbox in the Create Tag Window¶
Previous version would always create tags in your default mailbox. In v3, you can select the mailbox in which the new tags should be created.
Preserve Categories for TaskIt and ScheduleIt¶
New option to copy tags from the original message for TaskIt and ScheduleIt commands.
The Undo button now shows a tooltip with the message subject, tags and folder name (if any) applied during the last operation.
Window position and size¶
We have improved the logic to remember the previous position, size and column widths of the QuickTag and Manage Categories windows. Next time you open a window, it will be displayed in the same position as before.
Improved support for different monitor resolutions¶
The window position and size logic, described above, works correctly even if you move between environments with different monitor resolutions or different number of monitors.
Other enhancements and fixes¶
Version 3 includes many other small improvements and fixes, which further increase product usability, performance and reliability.
License management portal¶
Over the last several years, we have received feedback from many of you that you would like us to improve license management and administration. We are introducing a license management portal where you can keep track of your license usage and deactivate installation when you need to move a license to another computer. When creating an account, use the same email address you used when you placed an order.
Subscription licensing model¶
Starting with version 3, we are switching to a subscription licensing model.
What else would you like to see?¶
Many of the new features and improvements are based on your suggestions. If you have ideas on how else we can make SimplyTag even more useful to you, we would love to hear from you!
If you do not have v2 installed, simply run the v3 installer.
If you have v2 installed:
- If you installed v2 using an MSI installer and are using an MSI installer for v3 and you are not changing “bitness” (32 vs 64 bit), you do not need to uninstall v2. Be sure to select the right MSI installer based your Outlook bitness.
- Otherwise, please uninstall v2 before installing v3.
