Multiple task lists in outlook sync with RTM

goetsie says:
As I work with a GTD system in outlook, where I use different task lists, I am looking for a way to keep this also visible in RTM.
With the standard setup of the sync I can only see the main tasklist of my outlook profile, in this way I can only have a total overview when I am werking in outlook..
Is there a way afrond this??

Hi goetsie,
Currently, MilkSync is only able to see tasks located in the default Tasks folder of your Outlook profile. It's not possible to have it sync other folders.

However, MilkSync uses Outlook categories to determine lists and tags for tasks from Outlook. Any category beginning with # is considered to be a tag while any other category is considered to be a list.

If you'e able to keep all your tasks in the main Tasks folder and use Outlook categories to separate them instead, MilkSync will be able to differentiate between lists this way.
