March 26th

We’ve released another update to the Daylite Mail Assistant window to improve stability and performance.

 

March 19th

You can now attach the Daylite Mail Assistant window to the left or right side of Mail, which will also follow the Mail window as you move it around. You can also close The Daylite Mail Assistant window, and a Daylite icon will appear at the top left or right side of Mail. Clicking the Daylite icon will show the Daylite Mail Assistant window again.

 

February 29

We’ve released the Daylite Mail Assistant floating window, and we are continuing to take in feedback and work on improvements. The next set of improvements focuses on window management, specifically granting you the ability to attach Daylite Mail Assistant to the Mail window and improve how you hide it.

If you’re interested in receiving Daylite betas, your update settings.

February 22nd

The latest update to the Daylite Assistant for Outlook adds search to link additional records like Contacts. If you want to be involved with the Daylite Assistant for Outlook beta,  sign up for the waiting list.

February 14th

We released Daylite Mail Assistant window version 1.0 after multiple Beta and Release Candidate tests with our beta groups.

This update replaces the old extension with a new window design, enhancing the user experience with Daylite Mail Assistant on macOS Sonoma. For those using macOS Ventura, we recommend sticking with the Daylite Mail Assistant Plugin.

We advise users on Ventura or older remain on their current operating system if feasible. We'll keep an eye on feedback from Sonoma users to determine Daylite's compatibility status with Sonoma.

Thank you to everyone on our beta group for testing the Daylite Mail Assistant window and submitting feedback during the beta!

Daylite Mail Assistant On Sonoma

Apple released macOS Sonoma 14.3, and our testing confirms this update significantly improves Mail’s stability when using extensions. If you’ve upgraded to Sonoma and experienced Mail crashes when using the Daylite Mail Assistant extension, we strongly recommend updating to 14.3.

For those who haven't upgraded to Sonoma, we recommend that you remain on your current OS until the public release of the Daylite Outlook add-in or the Daylite Mail Assistant window.

January 18th

The initial beta of the Daylite Assistant for Outlook is now available. To join the beta group, sign up here for an email with installation instructions.

January 8th

The Daylite Mail Assistant window design has progressed, and we are preparing the internal beta, with our next step being a public beta soon after.

Daylite Mail Assistant Extension on Sonoma

As of our latest Daylite update, 2023.50, instances of the Daylite Mail Assistant extension being unloaded have been further reduced by over 90%. We will continue to review the remaining issues and work to resolve them.

Additionally, we are pleased to report that Apple’s upcoming macOS 14.3 update (currently in public beta) has resolved the majority of the Mail app crashes and extension performance issues.

Daylite Mail Assistant for Outlook

We’ve released version 1.0.0 Beta of Daylite Mail Assistant for Outlook to the Microsoft store (Microsoft AppSource).

This release includes the following features:

  • Can open the add-in in the reader view, when a message is selected (not yet available in the compose view)
  • Manually add emails to Daylite
  • Link emails to existing Daylite contacts (People and Companies), and any Projects or Opportunities linked to those contacts
  • When linking a Person, their default Company will be auto-linked as well.
  • Link attachments

Those that signed up for access to the beta will receive an email with instructions.

December 11th

We identified a new crash introduced by Apple in the macOS Sonoma 14.2 beta. Daylite 2023.50 addresses this crash. We will continue to work on the already identified and unresolved crashes. Please note that a potential significant interruption in your current email workflows still applies with the DMA extension on Sonoma. We recommend holding off upgrading to Somona for an uninterrupted workflow.
