How do i know when a shared task is completed.

mr.clifford says:
HI all ,

I've used RTM for years just for myself and love it - so after years of being a solo user thought I would introduce my better half to it - and seem to have hit a roadblock almost straight away - I see there are notifications on sharing tasks with one another , however as far as I can tell there is no way to see when a shared task is updated or more importantly completed without either going in and checking manually or creating some smart list to see what has recently been completed . Am i missing something here , is there a simple way to do this as without it I have no idea if the tasks i shared were ever actually done ( and vice versa )
thanks!

Hi mr.clifford,
Currently it's not possible to receive notifications on shared tasks, sorry. What is possible is to receive notifications for given tasks, so it would be a possibility to have your better half give you a task to notify you.

Another option would be to subscribe to the RSS feed for your shared list, which would update when any changes are made.

Hope this helps a bit!

Hi Andrew , Thank for you for the quick reply .

Could I ask if such functionality is realistically planned for a future release or not really a priority ? I'll be honest and say without this functionality I'll likely have to use an other task list manager to use with my other half as it is key to be able to know when tasks are done , I'll continue to use RTM for myself so not ideal , but such is life :-)

mr.clifford,

This is something that could potentially be done through the use of the RTM API:

Not sure if you have coding experience or not. Let me know if you want more details.
