We are pleased to announce that ClearContext Pro v6.1 has been released. To upgrade, one may click on any download link at www.clearcontext.com to download and install v6.1. Existing v6 license keys will work with v6.1.

The primary focus of v6.1 is Outlook 2013 support, particularly the new inline reply mode. In addition, v6.1 is validated for use with Windows 8. Additional details on v6.1 are posted on our online forums.

ClearContext v6.0 Released

We are pleased to announce that ClearContext Professional v6.0 has been released to production! To download v6, click on any download link on www.clearcontext.com. The web site now reflects updated information and documentation for v6, including the user guide. For more information on what’s new in v6, please visit our new release page.

Updated licensing is needed for users of v5 or earlier, and a discounted upgrade license is available here. Connect members should visit their Connect status page to obtain their v6 license.

For those that have already installed the Release Candidate (RC), updating your software is not necessary, as the released version is the same as the RC.

Thanks to all for their interest in v6, and especially our Connect members for their help and feedback during the beta period. We hope that ClearContext Professional v6 will help you become more productive than ever!

ClearContext v6 RC Open to All

Just a quick post to announce that we are making the ClearContext v6 Release Candidate available to anyone who would like to try it. Please note that the web site still reflects v5 and that the v6 documentation is not available yet.

We have download links and additional information on our new release page.

ClearContext v6 Release Candidate

We are thrilled to announce that the development of ClearContext Professional Version 6 is complete. The Release Candidate is now available for download to our Connect subscribers. This Release Candidate build is intended to be the production release, and will become the version available publicly on our web site, assuming no last minute issues arise.

Before Version 6 is released publicly, we do have some work to do on updating the documentation and ClearContext web site. However, we will open up access to anyone interested in trying v6 in the next week or so.

As a reminder to our Connect members, for access, please register on our online forums using the same email address associated with your Connect account. Once registered and logged in, you will see the private Connect forums where the v6 Release Candidate can be downloaded.

Also, version 6 requires new license keys and the existing v5 license keys cannot be used with v6. Connect members can claim their new v6 license keys by visiting their Connect status page.

Thanks to everyone for their interest and enthusiasm, and we look forward to making ClearContext Professional Version 6 available to all shortly!

ClearContext v6 Beta 2

ClearContext Professional v6 Beta 2 has been released and is available to our Connect subscribers. Beta 2 incorporates many improvements and fixes from feedback on the first beta. We invite any Connect members who have not yet tried the v6 beta to check out this latest version.

Some highlights on Beta 2 improvements include:

  • Dashboard: Inactive Projects filter, user interface improvements, performance fixes
  • AutoFile: configurable mail file location, revised rule creation window
  • Project Selector: improved handling of long names, auto increase of window height according to number of suggestions, warning before filing to deleted Project folders
  • Outlook 2010 Ribbon: toolbar optimization, customization and keyboard shortcuts
  • Followup/Defer: addition of quick hours selection UI

A more complete change list is available in the Connect forums. For information on overall v6 changes, please see our prior blog posts.

With the completion of beta 2, the next milestone for v6 is the production ready Release Candidate. As the focus is now primarily on testing and critical bug fixes, we anticipate a much shorter amount of time to finish the Release Candidate as compared to the Beta releases. The completion of v6 is drawing near and we thank everyone for their enthusiasm and patience.

As a reminder to our Connect members, for beta access, please register on our online forums using the same email address associated with your Connect account. Once registered and logged in, you will see the private Connect forums where the beta can be downloaded.

ClearContext v5.4: Getting Things Done with Categories

Since early releases of ClearContext, we’ve always had a significant group of passionate users who are also fans of productivity systems like Getting Things Done and Total Workday Control. We’ve had a special build customized for our TWC users for a while. We’re now pleased to announce the release of ClearContext Pro v5.4, which includes some much-requested features to better support our GTD users as well.

Review your highest priority projectsGTD users and other users who organize their tasks using special Outlook categories can download a GTD setup guide for ClearContext with detailed setup instructions.  Here’s a quick overview of some key features to help GTD users stay organized with ClearContext:

  • Context Categories – You can now manage your tasks based on either categories or projects. Select a category view on the ClearContext Summary Dashboard to display a count of tasks and appointments by context category in the dashboard, highlighting due and overdue categories.  Context categories are denoted by a special character in front of the category name (i.e. @Calls, !Next, *Phone).  
  • Category Dashboards – Double-click a context category on the Dashboard to open it in the Detail tab (formerly the Project tab).  This will show all tasks and appointments with the assigned category.  Add new tasks to the category using the Add Task function on the detail dashboard and ClearContext will automatically append the current context category to the task.
  • Next Actions -  Right click tasks in the Dashboard or Organizer to mark them as Next Actions.  A small arrow will appear next to those items you have identified as Next and a category of !Next will be assigned to the task. Use the Next Action filter on your task list in the Dashboard to see only those tasks marked !Next.

More details on these and other GTD-related features can be found in the GTD setup guide.

Upgrade ClearContextThe v5.4 upgrade is complimentary for registered v5 customers, registered v5-TWC users and active Connect members.  Download here.
