Synopsis
This article provides information about the Divide Productivity application will no longer be supported for Android after November 30, 2017.
Problem or Goal
Divide Productivity app will not be supported and will no longer be available for download after November 30, 2017. Users can continue to use Divide Productivity on their devices after the app has been unpublished from Google Play store. However, the app will no longer be supported and receive no security updates or bug fixes.

For more information, please refer to End of Life for the Divide Productivity app.
 
Cause
Solution
Originally, Google made an announcement the Divide Productivity app would be removed on June 30, 2017, but later revised the date to November 30, 2017. Due to this fact, Pulse Secure has revised this article.
 
Pulse Workspace supports enterprise app configurations for Google Gmail and Calendar apps. Pulse Secure strongly recommends to replace Divide Productivity app with Google Gmail and Calendar apps prior to November 30, 2017.
