Outlook sync

chriswhite says:

Hey, I know it's been posted on the suggestions once before, and I'm sure you get a lot of emails about it but I've been searching the web looking for something other than Plaxo (or Exchange) that will sync with Outlook and thus MyLifeOrganized and my PDA. I love your Google calender integration and I noticed back in 2005 you said you were working on Outlook sync and I'm very excited that it might be coming but I wasn't sure if it's still something you're working on.

Thanks for everyone's feedback -- Outlook sync is now available. :)

Thank you very much to those of you who've been helping us to test this feature!

Please see our blog post for the announcement.

We've created a new MilkSync forum -- I'm closing this topic, but we'd love to hear from you over there. :)

emily (Remember The Milk) says:

chriswhite, thanks for your feedback on this. It's still something that we're looking at, but it turned out that there wasn't as much demand for this feature as we thought there might be, so it hasn't been a high priority.

emagin says:

Eh! Not much demand???

Have you seen the Google groups threads on hordes of people waiting for a decent solution to sync with Google calendar?

I realize you ruby web 2.0 folks don't care much for anything microsoft. But there are really hordes of us out there waiting to move from what is a fairly high productivity desktop environment to the web.

I think that initially you will have tons of people who could care less, because they are already very happy using web only solutions. But soon after this first wave you will get the interest of the desktop apps / office people, those with sync to their phones, using gmail now and maybe diddling with gcal, etc. and ready to move the whole thing over.

Web mail, calendar, tasks, notes, it's all gotta come together on the web and sync with our phones and desktops again like the desktop once did.

Ok that's a bit broad for RTM, but I hope you get the idea. I think you will see others interested in sync with outlook or at least basic import/export.

Posted 7 years ago

emily (Remember The Milk) says:

emagin, thanks for your feedback. We're always happy to look at developing features based on user requests (we love it when RTM users tell us which features they'd like to see :)

Unfortunately this hasn't been a highly requested feature for RTM -- there have only been a handful of requests for Outlook sync over the past year. We're a very small team, so unfortunately we don't have the resources to develop features when we're unsure of the demand for them, but we do continue to look at this feature.

I know that a few companies are working on sync products for Google Calendar -- if you're using any of those, it might be worth suggesting to them that they could look at supporting RTM too. Also, Outlook 2007 will actually have support for the iCalendar standard, so you'll be able to subscribe to your tasks via our iCalendar service.

Hope this helps!

chriswhite says:

Good to hear you're still thinking about it, I wish there had been more demand. I am currently syncing (two way) with Google Calendar and Outlook 2007, so the final piece I'm waiting for is a task manager and I'll be happy.

Thanks for your prompt responses, you guys really seem to be doing a great job!

Hi everyone,

Can I just say... I would REALLY love to see Outlook sync on RTM!!

Both me and my girlfriend use Outlook for work and inevitably our handhelds have to sync with work's data. We want to share our Todo lists and RTM would be perfect if it wasn't missing this tiny little bit of functionality...

I have been wasting sooo much time lately trying to find an online task solution that syncs with Outlook and/or PDAs (Palm and PPC).

aijoovai says:

RTM has some nice ideas but I'm just so over with not having the ability to sync my offline PIM to the online services I use. That is, I won't use services that can't sync except for some special purposes. Sometimes.

There's really very few .. like zero .. good online PIM services of any kind that would handle sync properly in general. I've been especially surprised that Yahoo hasn't been able to pull it out (which is good in a way because I don't like them in many other ways - would been a difficult choice if they had a good service and were the only one). From others i've tried Plaxo is the least worst I've found but their attitude has never been very good and has seemed to have gone down the drain after they were aquired by AOL.

I also think that SyncML is pretty much the only proper way to go: people have different devices and to handle this only an open standard can cater to all.

To put it short: If RTM would have a good (SyncML) Outlook sync I'd use it immediately for all my lists, todos, etc.

Why can't someone (google perhaps) come up with a complete substitution for outlook. I used a blackberry which I sync to outlook. I find the outlook calendar/blackberry/google cal sync is too buggy. So I have to use RTM on its own, blackberry and outlook.

Google has most of it with gmail and google calendar. Setting up a 'notes' function and then hooking up with RTM should be a no brainer.

Any solutions out there?

Add my vote too!

I know poopoo-ing outlook is what the in-crowd does nowadays (and for many good reasons) but outlook does have a few nifty features which none of the alternatives provide yet. Hence my still using it (because it provides an offline calendar + schedulable tasks + straightforward PDA & mobilephone syncing + integration with the rather versatile Onenote, all in one package). I'm afraid I just won't be using RTM all that much until it becomes easy to sync it with outlook (and also with other online apps like stikkit). I put too much time into outlook to start entirely from scratch on RTM.

The whole point of the new Web 2.0 culture is supposed to be freedom, simplicity, mobility, openness, adaptability, choice, and collaboration. There are a lot of really excellent apps out there, each with their own special features that I find particularly adapted for use in different situations. I want to be free to use outlook-Onenote when I'm offline, my PDA and mobile phone when I'm on the move, and the combination of Google-Calender, RTM, and Stikkit when I'm online and away from my desktop. + I want all of this to be easily inter-operable -- change a task/event in one and all the others sync automatically.

I want to have the freedom to use outlook and Googlecal/RTM/stikkit together. I don't want to be forced to choose either one or the other.

And for those who are out to kill outlook (which is fine with me as long as something better replaces it), isn't providing bridges between outlook and other solutions the way to go? openness is definintely the key to converting the masses.

Emily, I think that you guys at the RTM team are underestimating the demand for easy RTM-outlook synching. Once you open that floodgate, I'm pretty certain you'll get a deluge of users coming to RTM.

emily (Remember The Milk) says:

Thanks for the interest that everyone has shown here. We'll continue to look at the possibility of developing an Outlook sync product in the future, but I just wanted to mention that we're a very small team here (with only one software engineer). We already have our hands pretty full with RTM, and creating a solid sync product is a huge endeavour -- our engineer would likely need to spend much of the next year on development (keep in mind that Google Calendar doesn't have an official sync product either, and they have a few more resources than us... :)

We don't think that it would be fair to our users to stop developing RTM so that we could work on a sync product instead. I hate to disappoint everyone here, but with one engineer, unfortunately we're just not able to spend a significant amount of time on one request (at the expense of being able to improve RTM and add new features for the majority of users who don't want us to stop development).

Having said that, our API allows anyone to write applications that interact with RTM -- including Outlook sync (and I know there's at least one person already working on Outlook sync for RTM). If you're a developer, you're more than welcome to check out our API and look at developing your own sync tool. It would be wonderful to see sync come from the RTM community :)

Posted 7 years ago

alvin says:

Emily, thanks very much for your response!

I had a little idea (work around) which I posted in a separate forum topic. This could be considered core functionality, i.e. not sync w/ external product, and perhaps could be in scope for Bob's work?

What I said was:

"Continuing from my Outlook sync rant earlier... one option I've been wanting is a simple 1-click option to send the entire list out to an (my) email address. This would be a simple workaround just to get the data into Outlook. I would hit this button just as I'm heading out of the office.

*dreaming slightly* now if that email was nicely formatted showing task priority, due date and other details, I would be in Milk heaven... "

ranbarton liked the idea - what do you guys think about it?

alvin, if you're using Outlook 2003, some users have had success with a third-party plugin, Remote Calendars, which allows you to subscribe to our iCalendar service -- this might be a good way to get your tasks in Outlook. We'll look at the possibility of email export too (I'm sure Bob could handle that one :) but I just thought I'd mention this as it might be a neat option.

OMG - Outlook sync not commonly requested? Boy were you off on that. Its my #1 criteria and only reason that RTM is just a passing interest to me. My life revolves around my GTD Outlook tasks - with categories and NOTES support too!

If you are looking for an example of one company that does this right - see PLAXO - it syncs my outlook with everything, but I like RTM's ability to do locations and SMS reminders better.

Bottom line - get on it - the demand is there. See plaxo.com for a good example of how to do 2 way sync to outlook contacts, tasks and calendar. - with both categories and notes.

If you have a BlackBerry you can use MilkSync to Sync your tasks to the tasks window in Outlook. Works seamlessly (be sure you're using version 1.05 or higher). Just have to keep an eye on the categories, and use filter to sort categories back on your BlackBerry but this works really well.

leitourgia says:

I'm a new user (just started testing RTM and Pro yesterday) For those looking for an Outlook workaround, here's what I have come up with.

It requires a Windows Mobile device but I would guess it would work with other devices that sync with both RTM and Outlook. All one has to do is connect that device to its sync cradle and set up the sync between it and both Outlook and RTM. Then, when a task is added or modified in RTM or Outlook (or the device for that matter), the Windows Mobile device will serve as a conduit - it will sync with one of the two (RTM or Outlook) and then sync to the other (Outlook or RTM).

The only problem I have found with this is that RTM, unlike Outlook, has no start date (I see that this is a perennial feature request). Consequently, when a new task is added in RTM, it shows up in Outlook at a task with no start. As this is a problem with the way a task appears in the Taskpad of Outlook, I would hope that if RTM ever gets around to adding direct synchronization with Outlook they would also take care of adding the Start Date feature so that it would be more functional.

Since I have only just tested this work around this morning, I would suggest that anyone else who tries it back up their tasks in Outlook before trying it (I did). That way, if there's a problem in the system somewhere, you won't have lost all your Outlook data. But so far, I have had no problems with it.

FWIW...

jimmy.guterman says:

When I read posts in these forums asking for RTM synch with tasks in Outlook, the response from RTM is that there haven't been a lot of requests. However, it 's possible that there are a large number of potential customers who RTM is missing out on because there's no Outlook synch -- and the people who won't consider RTM without Outlook synch would rarely, if ever, get as far as this forum to express their opinion. Outlook task synch would help many current RTM users -- including this paying one -- and it might give RTM a much larger possible audience.

I need Outlook sync.

I know I need to shift to a web-based task management system soon, and lose my dependence on Outlook forever. But it seems like sites (like RTM) want me to quit cold turkey.

I need the sync feature which encourages me to take the plunge, giving me the assurance that I don't need to totally quit Outlook yet, but I could do so when I am ready.

I do understand, however, that in the end, it is the voice of the developers that count. It has been this way in various open source and freebie systems (Joomla, Pidgin, etc.), and I am not raising my hopes up that RTM would be any different. I just wanted to state my case if there is still a glimmer of hope.

phillip.moxley says:

This is BS, RTM is useless unless I can sync. I have an acct but not going to use it unless I can get this. There's demand for something like this on every sync - type site but none that function properly. You'd think that the developers are idiots based on the demand for the service. I've searched high and low for a way to sync and RTM has a good thing going for it, but it's not gonna go far without some risk/effort.

And yes I am speaking in a condescending tone with "and" at the beginning of it.

I am also using this, and it works somewhat. My complaint is that I want to sync a smartlist to my phone, rather than any of the static lists.

Worse, I sent an email asking about it, since I get "Priority Support" with the pro account.

Outlook sync please!!

I use Outlook as my main manager for GTD as it is pretty much the only fully integrated contact manager/calendar/tasks solution out there for consumers and it is pervasive in business.

The web is still a mish mash. Only partial solutions. For example - Google only does calendar, RTM only does tasks. Google now syncs the calendar to Outlook which is VERY NICE. How about RTM syncing to Outlook? That would solve 95% of my "cloud sync" problems. Please don't make me get a MS Exchange Service. I like the sync to Windows Mobile. But I still need it into my Outlook, that is my command center.

Some of you people need to chill out. Perhaps it occurs to you that building a stable, successful sync with Outlook isn't something which can be done in a few hours of coding? Have any of you noticed the almost complete lack of services which have the ability to sync tasks with Outlook? Does that tell you something about how difficult it is to build the sync, and have it work reliably and effectively? RTM is not a major corporation with hundreds of developers (they're like 3 people, right?), and yet even the big corporations have failed to build this kind of sync tool. I agree that whoever builds a reliable sync for Outlook tasks will win lots of customers (there's clearly some pent up demand here), but it's clearly not as simple as we'd like to believe.

@Stephen

Well Google syncs with Outlook Calendar just fine. There are several packages that synced Palm with Outlook just fine, actually Dataviz synced EVERYTHING in Outlook to the Palm, they had that YEARS AGO. So your assertion that nothing it doesn't exist is specious.

I will fault big corporations like Apple for failing to properly integrate tasks into their offerings. The iCal standard is much to blame for the utter lack of integration of tasks and contacts properly in the products relying on it. And Google has still failed to produce Google Tasks. How hard can that be when a 3 person operation can do it?

No one said it was simple, but I think it takes a higher precedence over other requests. I am a little disappointed that the only post from RTM in this large thread is a quick dismissal of the idea and nothing since, despite the overwhelming demand for it. I hope that, despite their leanings towards Apple products, they Remember where the Milk of the users come from - they are mostly Windows Users, using Outlook.

Outlook sync made me choose Toodledo over RTM. I'm still hanging with RTM in case they ever get outlook sync--and would certainly go Pro for it. Given all the demand (and taking at face value the claims to be willing to go Pro if RTM snynced with Outlook), perhaps a 4th employee's wages could be paid by new revenue generated by the Outlook sync feature? That's a thought that I'm sure has crossed RTM minds a few thousand times. Here's hoping that the lines will finally intersect and it becomes a winning economic proposition for RTM to develop a sync feature with Outlook!

stephen.minton says:

@blackbelt,
you're right that it was done for the Palm (and BlackBerry), and even some other more basic mobile devices (I had a limited task sync with Outlook on an old Samsung cellphone, although it was horrible), but I was talking about syncing to online tasks managment systems. I said "almost complete lack..." too, because there is one app I know of, which syncs Outlook tasks with Toodledo. It has some limitations, though, such as it can't sync recurring tasks etc. (which underlines the complexity of getting it right). Maybe there are others I don't know about, but it strikes me that there are a lot of online task management systems at the moment, and none of them are officially supporting Outlook sync as far as I can tell, despite the apparent demand (the Toodledo sync app was developed independently by someone else, and apparently has put some strains on their servers - another good indication of how much demand there is, I guess).
I'd also like to see RTM sync with Outlook, and it's clear that a lot of people would too, but my point was that it's a little harsh to demand this so insistently from a small organization like RTM when firms like Apple and Google etc. have also (for reasons which baffle me, too) failed to make any progress down this road at all. I can't imagine that RTM would just choose not to do this if they could (why would they?). I suspect they are trying to develop something, but it's wise of them not to talk about it if they just don't know how long it will take to get it working right. The last thing a start-up like RTM can withstand is a disastrous product launch or new feature which causes problems rather than solving them, or to promise something if they don't know for sure when they'll be able to deliver it. Imagine how angry everyone would be then....

+1 for Outlook Sync. Don't think I will be paying for a Pro account until this key feature is in place.

I like the RTM service but I think the sync feature puts ToodleDo above RTM for any work Windows/Outlook user.

Not saying that this is a simple task but as someone who invests in businesses would hypothesize that this would have a huge payoff for RTM.

Rem that majority of the ppl who might be interested in a task management tool are in the workforce, majority of the ppl that are in the workforce use Outlook and that same majority probably own a smartphone.

Offering them the ability to integrate their handheld, web & work comp would be a great way to attract what I believe should be RTMs focus market.

I like RTM a lot, and hope you guys have serious plans for the outlook sync. If it doesn't show up soon, I might take all my tasks and retype them into this ToodleDo webapp that I've been suggested by others, which does sync with outlook.

Thank you for all the work on creating a great webapp so far, and I don't want to sound ungrateful for the great free service but, I have to admit I'm surprised you have not developed this outlook sync yet as I guess maybe you are loosing potential customers because of it.

Since now, I turned around the problem upgrading to a Pro account (the only reason I upgraded was this).

Using the PocketPc app I synch RTM on PocketPc with the one on the web, and than with MS Outlook.

It's quite easy but it would be really grate to have the opportunity to direct synch Outlook and RTM on the web, expecially because I already use "Google Calendar Outlook Synch" tool.

I really hope RTM will develope along this MS Outlook integration way.

currently testing RTM and iphone for the trial period. Don't believe I would go for a Pro account based on the number of Pro users above who have asked for this feature and haven't even had a reply in 18 months or so.

Keeping your customers in the dark doesn't seem very professional to me. I see Stephens points above, but even a quick update along the lines of 'We aren't doing this' would be better than nothing.

The last update was clearly wrong saying there is no demand. Why not at least acknowledge that there is a demand? RTM could be THE solution in this space with this feature. Without it, it's just another of the many not quite right ones, if one of the better ones.

Cmon guys at least give the update.

I love RTM, and am currently using it with Appigo's ToDo on the iPhone (the best mobile task manager I have used on any platform). Working for a large company, Outlook is central to my daily workflow, and is tied into other critical apps (Salesforce, OneNote, Project, etc.). While I have been using RTM for my personal life (for example, sharing task lists with my wife), I have been forced to live a "dual-life" with two sets of task data and applications. While I have introduced many at my work to RTM, no one has adopted it because of the lack of Outlook synchronization. If this situation continues, I will not renew my Pro subscription, and will seek alternatives.

Great Bob T. Monkey of RTM, please tell your human associates how much it appears a great many of the masses, washed and otherwise, really crave this mysterious Outlook sync. Some of us are forced into the realm of Outlook due to work and some kind of update from RTM speaking to what`s up w/ sync, even just a token bit w/ promise of development coming somewhen, would be cool. Stephen.minton, props for discussion of the realities of a start-up and the ongoing strangeness others in digital land seem to have w/ Outlook sync.

Is there some eerie mystical force holding back easy Outlook sync? Could this strange field possibly end up being something the Large Hadron Collider will discover is the glue holding together the universe, and that by enabling easy sync across our globe, us monkeys will collapse the universe in on itself? With so much potential for our growth as a species and things to taste and discover and ponder over, do we really want to risk the destruction of all that is, just to sync the stuff we gotta do on our devices? Pencil and paper might be so much safer.

Well, I'm not sure what difference it makes, but I'll throw my hat in the ring in support of Outlook sync.

I too would buy a PRO acct to get this feature, which would also facilitate syncing my too-old Windows Mobile 2003 PDA (which I was also willing to pay for).

Otronix's post that people stick to RTM (instead of migrating to Toodledo) primarily because of the strong branding is interesting.

They may have great branding, but I not sure that's primarily the reason. Instead I think it's because RTM has a clean, comfortable interface that people are invested in, tight integation with Gmail (was blown away by how smooth it was; not sure if toodledoo has this), and a good community with responsive staff.

All to their credit, of course. we love ya, but throw us a fricking bone yo!

I.e. my boss sends me an email, I click in Outlook to convert it to a task and it uploads to RTM. I can worry about tagging, locations after.

Similarly at home I log onto RTM, add a task and it pops up in Outlook tommorow.

tomevans says:

I've been researching this problem myself - I can sync from my RTM to blackberry (with milksync availble with RTM pro) and visversa; but I would really like to sync my outlook tasks as well. I think I've a solution, but this relies on you syncing RTM with a smartphone first then you sync back to outlook.

The solution is to use funambol: https://www.forge.funambol.org/learn/
Details on setting up for a blackberry are at:
http://www.blackberryforums.com/general-blackberry-discussion/145502-howto-ota-device-backup-sync-using-free-tools-contacts-calendar-memos-tasks.html
Looks pretty cool, but haven't tried it yet, as it looks complicated - I would only use it to sync tasks (already sync calender with the google tools, and don't want to sync contacts), but it has many other capabilities, including it would appear a virtual 'push-email' function which would be good for people without an enterprise account (like me!)

I was about to drop $25 on a Pro account when I came across this thread. RTM folks, congrats - your disregard for what is obviously an untapped market just cost you another customer.

RTM's got the "cool kids" halo since the Lifehacker staff love you, but Toodledo's actually set up for GTD.

The reality is that there are lots and lots and lots of folks who live in Outlook when they're on the job. I'm +1 to everyone else who's chimed in on this thread.

I think you've got to consider whether it makes sense your target audience is *really* unhooked from Outlook, or whether the low priority you've been getting is a function of who is most vocal.

Outlook/exchange remains overwhelmingly the PIM platform of choice for business users, and the client has all kinds of APIs that should make integration straightforward. Consider the penetration Xobni has seen from hooking into Outlook only.

Not much demand?!? I primarily use Outlook Tasks because task entry is so easy. It's downfall is that it is locked into one place, my PC. I would gladly pay the $25 price of admission to the RTM Pro version of there was a sync tool so that I could enter tasks either in Outlook or RTM and they would show up in both. If you are not convinced of the new business you would get with this feature, why not send an email to your entire registered user list asking who would be interested in Outlook sync if it was offered in the Pro version? See how many positive responses you get back and I'll bet it is a heavy percentage of all your registered users and it would cost you nothing other than the time it took to compose an email and send it out. Give me Outlook sync and I'll give you $25 for adding it!

alanwages says:

I've been long hoping for Outlook integration. I pretty much gave up RTM for Outlook (going to a website for tasks was an extra step), but I recently gave it another try for the iphone app. At the end of the trial I decided not to upgrade. I've never been that fond of the RTM web interface (small font, multiple clicks to select/edit tasks, no calendar dropdown on date field, etc.) - it just feels very cluttered and difficult to use - I've never gotten used to it.

So yesterday I spent about 15 minutes and $4 setting up a Toodledo account, installing it for iPhone, and installing the Outlook sync plugin. Fantastic, I encourage all to give it a try. It has google calendar integration, and the tasks interface on the toodledo website is much more intuitive.

I'll put in another vote for Outlook Sync. I don't like managing tasks on Outlook (the interface is horrible) but Outlook has become the de facto sync platform even for tasks. Palm and Blackberry sync to Outlook and the real pain for me right now is I would love to integrate Mindmanager tasks with RTM and the only sync they have is with Outlook. Plus I want to get a Palm Pre at some point!

I think Outlook sync should happen. One thing to point out is that some people are referencing Toodledo and their Outlook sync as if it's a feature of Toodledo. I have played with Toodledo a little and didn't like the interface as much as RTM. I just looked and it looks like their Outlook sync is something that someone else developed with their API. RTM has an API that could be used for this purpose, too. I'm not saying that it shouldn't happen but I don't think people can say that Toodledo created an Outlook synching app because, at least on the surface, it looks like they weren't the ones that did that. I've written a Windows app that lets me add tasks easily to RTM via the API but don't have time to work on something bigger like Outlook Synch.

I just wanted to pop in to say that I'm an outlook user as well and wouldn't even consider using, much less paying for this service unless it had outlook support. Earlier you said there wasn't much demand for it, and most likely because its people like me who just leave as soon as they see it won't work with outlook tasks.

A little check box on google that you have to click on just to see your task isn't helpful at all to me as I would rather just add my tasks to my calendar for free which syncs to my outlook calendar.. But yea, if this thing could sync to my outlook task list like goosync does for calendar, that would be ideal and of value.

I just jumped into RTM, feet first, yesterday. Synced it with GMail, GCal, and iGoogle. It is absolutely terrific, but I'm realizing that I can't get away from Outlook as much as I'd like, because of its use in my office (I already have that synced with GCal).

I'd pay for an RTM Outlook tool that could fill in the blank here.

tmchow says:

I already pay for RTM, but the thing that is preventing me from using it full scale is that it lacks Outlook integration.

I use Gmail for my personal mail and have an iPhone, so love the iPhone app. However, for my work email and all calendaring I use Outlook like countless numbers of other people out there.

When it a 2 way sync'ing of Outlook and RTM going to be in the works? I'd be completely happy with a desktop application that runs on my work PC to do the sync'ing. Just give me some sync'ing!

aplattin says:

Another longtime Outlook user here too, because of work. Once I got an iPhone I started to look outside Outlook and for my tasks I tried out RTM with the iPhone app. Gotta say, I loved it! Switched all of my tasks to RTM and enjoyed the free trial period.

As luck would have it, near the end of the trial period my GF's PDA broke. I've been trying to convince her to get an iPhone (or at least a Touch) but she's a bit of a technophobe. And one of her comments was that she needed to sync to Outlook - and she's not someone who will just move everything to RTM and be on her way like I did. So I started doing some research and found Toodledo. Tried it out today, and while I liked RTM more in a couple of small ways, being able to sync to Outlook just makes it so much nicer for me, being able to see my tasks easily (and create new ones) while I'm on work email. So add +2 to the people who will be using Toodledo (and the paid iPhone app) instead of RTM because of Outlook sync. Would have happily paid for the pro account if it could sync.

Okay, Ih think it would be okay to close this Thread now. There are plenty of people who really would enjoy syncing RTM with putlook. Yet there ist a major Problem, which has not yet been articulated, which makes it impossible for RTM to provide such a tool... at least for the regular user:

IF you can Sync RTM and Outlook, MilkSync would be rather useless. As MilkSync is a major part of the "Pro" - account, I do not expect there to be a solution for regular users.

Yet I guess the number of Pro would rise if such a tool was provided.

I've got a 45-day free trial of reQall pro account which includes this outlook syncronisation. I just hope within that timeframe I see some evidence that I can expect something similar from RTM soon, or I may just have to consider reQall as an alternative. I hope it doesn't come to this, as I love the simplicity of RTM, both the webapp and the iPhone app.

Outlook is not going away, but if I find something that has similar functionality to RTM, an iPhone App and Outlook integration, I'll move to it.

What is most puzzling about RTM's foot-dragging on Outlook sync is that they have at least one outstanding application from a solid developer to develop Outlook task sync for them: Dave Levinson at gSyncit (you can search the forums for related posts).

gSyncit syncs everything else on Outlook with Google, and given RTM's deep integration with Gcal and Gmail, this would amount to one syncer to sync them all.

I'm using the Windows Mobile syc tool, but there are some issues. While it does help sync between Outlook and RTM, it does not sync my Outlook tags. Tags are critical! I would rather have tags synced rather than Lists. RTM Mobile Sync treats Lists as an Outlook tag. I can uses tags to make smart lists, and then I can make projects list using tags and smart lists. But none of the many tags I use in Outlook/Windows Mobile are being used by RTM Mobile Sync. Sync adds new tags to my Outlook tasks for each list, but ignores my existing tags that are critical for my task management using Outlook and Windows Mobile. So I'm not using RTM as much as I'd really like to.

Maybe you don't get a ton of requests because most Outlook users look at the features list, see that it does not support Outlook, and move on and never look at your service again. People using your service don't demand Outlook because they didn't need it. If they needed it, they would not have signed up with your service. In other words, you are asking the wrong people. Non-Outlook people would not demand Outlook support, while Outlook people simply would not subscribe to your service, making it harder to ask them if they want it.

Remember the Milk looks great, but it is pretty much useless to me unless it syncs with one of the following:

Outlook 2007
Achieve Planner
Windows Mobile*
Pocket Informant

All of which sync together:

Tasks: Achieve Planner + Outlook 2007 + Windows Mobile + Pocket Informant

Calendar: G1 + Google Calendar + Outlook 2007 + Windows Mobile + Pocket Informant

(*Syncing RTM with Windows Mobile must not interfere with Windows Mobile syncing with Outlook 2007. Not sure if your MilkSync can do this, because it is not mentioned anywhere on your site that I can find.)

I have no idea what you (qthic86) are talking about.

The raimersoft site is used to to host the download as I happen to own it but the application is totally free.
If it gets past the beta stage then I'm sure it will have it's own website
or at least a page:).

The application was developed in my spare time to try and solve some of the problems that I was having and as nothing has happened after 2 years I thought I would do something.

If you don't want to test it then no problem but I just thought I would put it out there in case anyone finds it useful.

Also I think you are missing the point - it's not about changing to a different email client (though I'm sure some people would like to) it's about trying to find something that syncs with Outlook and is easy to use.

Evermilk just needs some testing and it could be a viable solution
at least until RTM create their own but who knows when that will be...

kudos to poldaker for trying.

The Help instructions for getting started probably need some work - I tried a couple of times and finally "got" it.

I bombed at the Evernote Login with an "Exception of the type 'Evernote.EDAM.Error.EDAMUserException' was thrown"


So still doesn't look like it's quite ready for beta. but you deserve accolades for trying.

PS: to RTM (+1)

@ poldaker... sorry if i jumped to conclusions there. i am just very wary of downloading and installing any .exe file if I'm unfamiliar with the website or company providing it... so before going straight to your link i thought i'd check out the main site and see what it's about. www.raimersoft.com appeared to be a music app demo, so i assumed it was some sort of ad scheme linked into the software; if i'm wrong about that im sorry.

you might consider uploading the file to cnet or something similar so as not to confuse the raimsersoft with your app. cnet's also scanned for viruses so people should feel more secure downloading from there.

Good luck with the app!

poldaker says:

It was a beta that needed testing and as I said if it had been released
I would have created a website for it.

And really the outlook sync was the only thing causing problems.

Anyway it doesn't really matter now as it's no longer available.

Without people willing to test it or give feedback it's impossible to continue development.

So back to RTM and let's see what they come up with.

+1 Outlook sync is the missing link for me to start moving over to web apps only. Its nice to be elitist and demand that your users have the same very specific passion for webapps as you do. But the reality is you have to unplug us from the Man, or in this case Microsoft. Your going to do that by slowly weening us off of outlook.

Truth is that I know tons of users that would love RTM, if it integrated with the software that they are forced to use at work.

*sigh* My PhD program has us using TWO outlook accounts--one Outlook Live (w/ large storage) and one on a local exchange server (small storage but contacts include faculty and distribution lists). So I am trying to get as much of my stuff to interoperate with Evolution (home, Ubuntu) and Outlook 2007 (campus, XP) as possible. I end up w/ too many browser tabs and they all look alike! Having RTM sync w/ Outlook/Evolution would help a lot.

I will have an alpha version of an outlook sync available later this week. If you have an interest in BETA TESTING this application, please let me know at the following email address: veronica dot vandyke at gmail dot com.

It is an Outlook Add In that has only been tested in Outlook 2007 (although it may work in 2003.)

Please note: I am only interested in REAL beta testers. I need people to log bugs, what they were doing, etc. I will NOT be sending source code, only the finished app and will be posting updates and bug fixes as often as possible. (I work a real full-time job, too.) You will be expected to use an online bug tracking software to log any issues that you may have.

Disclaimer: I take no responsibility (since this is an Alpha release) for any screwups to either your RTM tasks or your Outlook tasks. Also, since I am using a non-commercial API, I am going to limit the # of beta testers. THIS WILL BE BUGGY. IF YOU AREN'T INTERESTED IN HELPING TO DEBUG THE APPLICATION, PLEASE DON'T CONTACT ME.

What I'm trying to do is get my RTM stuff on my iPod (not an itouch). In order to do this, I need the Outlook sync. I use the Google Calendar sync to pull into Outlook then onto the iPod, but it only transfers my main Google calendar - not the tasks that come from my RTM calendar.

So that's why I need the Outlook Sync -- unless someone else had an idea for how I can get my RTM stuff on my Ipod.

njsmyth says:

One of the reasons RTM is not seeing the demand for Outlook sync is because people who are using Outlook don't adopt RTM because there is no Outlook Sync option available. So you're getting a distorted sampling of opinion. I've repeatedly considered using RTM (and I would upgrade to pro), but the lack of an option to sync with Outlook is what has stopped me. I finally found a solution to sync my Ipod Touch with Outlook (using KeyTasks), and using Jott as my online "to do" (Jott syncs with Outlook and has an interface with RTM).

Like Chris, I'm no fan of Outlook or Microsoft, but it's the app standard at my job. I don't like using separate apps for work/home lists--I want my organization system to be integrated.

Now I have a Droid and I'm back to the same dilemma--finding an app that works on my Droid and syncs online and with Outlook. I've found myself considering RTM yet again. If RTM had an Outlook Sync option I'd sign up to be a RTM pro customer in a heart beat, AND I would be spreading the word. That would me a new, expanded user base for RTM.

My pro account is up for renewal in Dec. and I am on the fence...LOVE RTM but not being able to sync my Outlook 07 tasks is becoming a HUGE issue...add me to the list.
PLEASE RTM, 2-way outlook task sync with category support. Thanks!
