    1. I tried to add an office 365 Account. Autodiscovery does not work and there is no hint for the syntax. So googling around and trying around helps, but at first, I get Exception while trying. I got a Null Ref Exception when filling in the wrong data.

    2. After it seems to be the correct data, It syncs and syncs and syncs forever. whoops there came a System Web Http Excetion. yeah!

    3. Next try. uninstall and reinstall the Tasks App. Then I tried to reconfigure it and wait while syncing... But then: I got the next Exception and also typing Errors. There is a message that tells me about a "Technival" Error. What the heck is Technival? I would not expect such a simple misstyping in Telerik Apps... But back to the error: "Technival Error is: @p11 : String truncation: max=4000, len=4848, value='[some crypting string, looks like a base64]"" - Com'on Telerik! Why did you specify the table columns for a maxlength of 4000 and why do you not handle those expectations correctly in this App?

     

    If this where an free App or not provided by Telerik, I would give a shit about the errors and would simply not use it. But you have established a name and also collect money for the exchange sync. So do your job pls! Microsoft has removed this essential feature in Windows 10 Mobile. But don't ask why. Its a shame.

     

    If you need some help in resolving those Bugs, I can help you fixing them, but I need access to the source code :)

    Thank you very much Ves. Sorry for tone of voice, but I am not so amused about Microsoft hast removed this essential feature of a business phone. It is a great chance for you to spread your tool! Good Luck!

    Hello Leon,

    Thank you for pointing our attention to the Tasks app. I am not sure which version you have downloaded (meaning - for Windows Phone 7/8 or for Windows 8/10), but until we resolve the experienced issues, we will remove the apps from the Store. Unfortunately, I can't give any specific time frame when the issues will be addressed. Still, we would like to prevent others from bumping into the same, hence the decision for the Store removal. At some point, when the issues are addressed, we would re-publish the Windows 8/10 version.

    Regards,

    Ohh, I am not glad to hear you will remove it :( It is my last hope for Windows Phone to be able to be used in business... I used the Windows 10 edition. If I could help you in testing, just let me know.

    Hello Leon,

    Thank you for your willingness to assist us in the testing stage. We will consider the option to release this application as an open source product in our portfolio.

    I thought I will dev task management on my own, because I need this essential Feature for my job. But now, if you go open source, I will follow you and will do not create my own app! Great to hear! Great decission! Lets go! :)

    Hello Leon,

    I would like to follow up on the last reply with some more details. We are currently discussing the open source as on of the options (actually a very good candidate :)). That being said, if we decide go with open source it might happen after our Q3 official release, scheduled for the begging of September.

    Hi Leon,

    Thank you for getting back. Currently the source is still not released. We are discussing on the best licensing as the app itself requires proprietary components. Stay tuned for an update in the following weeks.
