Are 2 way iCal feeds ever going to work

yublocka says:
Hi there,

I've been a rtm user for a while, but never actually "used it" because I could never work out how to get it working offline. After recently swapping from Outlook to Thunderbird and Lightning I was excited to see I could easily add an iCal feed from rtm into my Lightning calendar.

Unfortunately it seems like its a 1-way feed only. From previous forum items here its been on the rtm todo list for a couple of years to change that. Is that ever going to happen??

Regards,
Tamara

We may look at providing synchronization solutions for software like this as part of MilkSync in the future. It really depends on the demand for synchronization with various software, so I can't say if Lightning will be supported in the near future.

I've often thought it would be handy if each task had a "click here if this is complete" link, so that I could subscribe to a feed in my reader (using a non-authenticated, private-through-obscurity URL) and then just click on the link in the reader to have the task marked done in one click. You could do the same with postpone, too, I suppose.

I'll add a vote for this. I think it would be great to be able to mark tasks as complete in iCal or Apple Mail.

I also vote for an ability to mark tasks complete using iCal or Apple Mail. Full task management would even be cooler in those two would even be better...

mystwillow says:
I would definitely buy pro if I could fully manage my tasks from iCal or Apple Mail. Also if there were a way to make my completed tasks stop showing up in Mail! Having all 500 completed tasks in there cluttering up my To Do list is driving me nuts and I can't figure out how to get the completed ones to not show.

emily (Remember The Milk) says:
Hmm, doesn't look like Mail lets you hide the completed tasks, but you could always create a Smart Mailbox that searches for your To Dos that are incomplete. Hope this helps!

One more vote for Lighting, or better yet, two way iCal sync! I'd love to see this, I just went pro for the Win Mobile sync so I'm half way to the perfect solution, now I'm just waiting on Lighting support in one way or another.

I noticed you said back in 2005 that two way iCal support was planned, has that changed or is it just a low priority?

Thanks!

emily (Remember The Milk) says:
Any future synchronization that we're doing will be as part of MilkSync (and will depend on the demand for syncing with particular software/devices).

(If a feature was mentioned in 2005, and we haven't done it yet, most likely our priorities did change -- the priority for this feature now will depend on demand, as mentioned above :)

Hope this helps!

I mentioned my interest in MilkSync and Macs on another MilkSync thread (http://www.rememberthemilk.com/forums/ideas/2811/), but I wanted to mention again that I think getting tasks on and off of a mac via iCal would be very powerful. Beyond iCal, you'd reach iPhones and iPod touches for offline access, you'd reach Palm PDAs, and you'd get into Entourage, iGTD, and various other programs that tap into the iCal store.

I think if you could handle 2-way syncing via MilkSync/iCal on to and off of a Mac, you'd really be on to something big.

I am new to the Forum and the product. I am experimenting with the site because it has more features etc than the others out there. However, I have to agree with the previous posts that the ability to do a 2 way sync with iCal would be the best thing that could happen with this software. This is missing for the iphone and would allow me to once and for all forget my old Treo.

sdm.miller says:
Absolutely, I cannot believe that RTM (which seems to be big on integration - witness GCal, Gmail, etc.) does not allow for two-way syncing through iCal. I use Thunderbird/Lightning for email (Gmail) and calendar (GCal) and would love to add RTM to the mix. Alas, I have to live with a simple display of an iCal feed. Get with it!! (Otherwise, it's a great product, keep up the awesome work!)

jeremydouglass says:
I would also go pro for 2 way ical sync.

Another suggestion - if you milksync only had a push-pull API for the iCalendar format that resembled the Google Calendar API, then I could use a product like BusySync to manage all my RTM / iCal syncing. This means you only have to write part of the functionality in order to get it good enough that I can start using it. Of course, right now BusySync only targets google calendar - but it would be a trivial change for them to change that tab to specifying an arbitrary server. Worth thinking about - I'd still go pro for it, if it actually worked.

yehudit says:
my vote for 2-way sync.

Also I can't delete RTM todos from iCal - I can't find the tasks in RTM so I can delete them from there. I only started using this last week so not many tasks, I can account for all of them and these 2 aren't there. Meanwhile they are cluttering up iCal.

If this can't be fixed I will seriously look for a different app, I can't have superceded tasks cluttering up my iCal for months, esp since I sync with iPhone.
Posted 13 years ago
yehudit says:
I looked through some other threads, and people have been complaining about lingering tasks for over a YEAR ! This isn't new functionality, this is fixing a problem. Hello? Anyone home on the development team?

Posted 13 years ago
emily (Remember The Milk) says:
yehudit , there are no current known issues with iCalendar subscriptions on our end.

The issues that were reported previously were caused by bugs in new versions of iCal (that have subsequently been fixed by Apple).

If you haven't already, I would recommend making sure that your version of iCal is up-to-date. It sounds as though the iCalendar subscription isn't being refreshed correctly by iCal -- it may be worth unsubscribing then re-subscribing to the iCalendar feed, and seeing if this helps.

If it's still not refreshing correctly, I'd recommend contacting Apple (we're providing a standard iCalendar feed, so unfortunately if iCal isn't refreshing correctly, this isn't something that we can fix on our end).

Sorry I can't be of more help!

eweeee says:
2 way sync is the reason i'll probably pay for a service like spanning sync. if you provide it as part of your tool, i'd be more likely to stay with rtm (i'm a new user, just trying it out, but happy so far--but i'm definitely shopping around...)

Posted 12 years ago
naor says:
after little thought - 2cents of an idea, since Plaxo is already doing sync with iCal (although not tasks as far as I can see) why don't you guys team with them, providing them the RTM layer, while they'll do the iCal sync stuff ????

Should be much easier for you to develop and maintain only that part while they can provide better service (they need that) and it can also be a quick path for outlook tasks sync as well.

They'll be happy, you can restrict this feature only to Pro accounts (promise to pay for pro) so you'll be happy too.. and we all be happy as well :)

Instead of buying a RTM PRO account (U$S 25 per year) you could try using BusySync (U$S 25 on time only) [http://www.busymac.com/].

It does two way calendar syncing with GCal and iCal, I think you can tweak it with ease to work with RTM calendars, too. Check it out!

julian.standen says:
Yes I just hit the wall with the one way sync.

I had been enjoying the new funtionality of Mac OS Leopard to highlight email text in Mac Mail and to make a to-do of it by simply hitting the the to-do button.

But this DOESNT cause it to be added to the RTM to-do list as that is only a one way deal.

Bummer...

As workaround I have made an email address called "RTM" (my RTM email address to sent tasks with) so I can forward the to-do emails to my RTM account.

But then I have to screw around and transfer it fom the inbox to a tasks list

Also the Leopard Mac Mail ability of just highlighting the text you want as your to-do text - doesnt fly with this method.

Bummer..

OH and I have a blackberry too (mac / to-do's & Blackberry is a world of pain) so this is very true..

""sabbatical says: this is very needed! there's NO way to sync tasks over the air from mac to blackberry, and remember the milk could be that solution! ""

PLEASE figure something out!

You have my $25 already..

I would settle for a standalone desktop app that would allow me to add tasks and manage without a browser properly (because I know there are solutions that sort of work). Something like Twitterific, that can sit in the menu bar (the little cow head would be perfect!) and could be pulled down to manage, add, complete, etc.

That being said, 2-way iCal sync/management would be pretty sweet. I always felt like RTM should just have a calendar view in and of itself... any possibility of that happening? So I could see at a glance what falls on what day?
Posted 12 years ago

jorhett, working offline is possible. Look for the google gears info here:
http://www.rememberthemilk.com/services/googlegears/

I agree fully with nf_seth. When Im organizing, I want to interact between a calendar and a task list. Both adding a calendar in RTM or two-way sync with google calendar/30 boxes/ whatever would accomplish this.

my vote to iCal sync too.
Actually it is quite easy to implement it using MacForge's CalDAV Server ( been there, done that... ) and some python,ruby,php,c++,objC, wherever you guys use... :)
I think that, as you have seen, this feature for RTM Pro will render a lot of bucks for ya!
Also stay tuned on WWDC this year as Apple will be releasing a new bleeding edge iCal Server ( version 2 ) with a new CalDAV specification ( more features, more accurate, faster, bla bla bla), and it shuld probably be open source ( as actual caldav server ) and also syncs to exchange ( blergh :p ), which should also be cool for sad ( windows, outlook, exchange ) users too...
CalDAV specs should be fine for both Linux and Mac users ( also for win people that uses sunbird or some app wich obviously support caldav, think there is a outlook plugin for that too) :)

Please give us your 2 cents here and we will give our dollars ;)


Thanks and congrats for the nice service and hard work of you guys! ;)

Please, please, please add 2 way syncing from iCal to RTM... I would definitely use RTM pro in that case. It's really important to me to keep my virtual clutter to a minimum and right now, without the two way iCal feature, I stopped using it because it didn't benefit my productivity. I like the idea of having a browser based todo list but until I find one that can function co-dependently with my computer, then I can't find a use for it.

Since the iCal format is used by both Lightning and, I believe, Evolution, by creating the sync capability you will make a huge number of people (including myself) happy.

There are other services popping up here and there that do this with multi-user read/write capabilities. They often provide the online storage and but unfortunately, they demand a higher price and I think only a handful of power users would ever subscribe to them.

If RTM does this for $25 a year. I think you guys will hit jackpot because not only hyper professionals but anyone can and will be able to afford this wonderful tool.

And now with GoogleDocs allowing all file types. Yes, finally ALL file types, ,just develop an app that would allow you to upload from desktop and get URL right there. PERFECT

and to get back to point. Two-way iCal sync. ALL THE WAY!
another vote for that.

Ditto here for 2-way iCal sync. Would definitely pay for it -- already pay Spanning Sync, but they only do calendars.

Why are we still debating about this?


Let's call for votes AGAINST 2-way sync


(and don't include me in this: I want 2-way-syncing!!)

Add me to the list.

2 years ago now, Emily said, "It really depends on the demand for synchronization with various software".

I didn't count the number of entries in this thread, but it took me a half hour to scroll down the page, so that constitutes "demand" as I define it.

Very simply, while many call it "2-way syncing", it's a rudimentary concept to want "Single Entry", in ALL computer usage. To have to go 2 places to delete or edit Tasks, is absolutely key.

On the server-side, why can't RTM just utilize CalDAV as opposed to WebDAV?

Would be fine to sync my RTM-pro not only via iPhone also via Thunderbird Lightning.

I tryed that, but didn't work, because no webDAV supported. As I see ;)

My environment ist like this:
Thunderbird Lightning (work) syncs also with my private Google Calendar
Google Calendar (private) is synced with my iPhone
Google Gmail (private) has the RTM PlugIn and shows the tasks on the left side
iPhone (private/work) uses RTM App to sync the tasks

I would also upgrade for two way syncing between iCal/CalDAV (Snow Leopard). I find it amazing that this thread is two years old

hello,

sorry : I posted this message elsewhere but I think this thread is more related on my issue.

I'd like to use RTM to plan my workload. Therefore I need to import meetings with their durations as RTM tasks automatically.

Is there now a way to do so ?

+1 Another vote for 2 way syncing with iCal. Or at least some info on why this appears to be so difficult to set up.

Been an RTM pro user going on year two. I love it. Having just moved into consulting full time I'm realizing that I need two-way syncing lest RTM just become yet another place to organize to-dos. Keeping things together and organized demands as few methods as possible. Ideally one central calendar... and that means iCal for me.

Without being able to use iCal to push events and changes back to RTM I'm going to have to find another solution. Makes me sad to move on. It has been a great tool.

I would like to have iCal syncing for all my RTM tasks. At leased sync over the duration if assigned. Right now each and every task that has a time for a due date takes 1 houre, therefore ignoring the assigned duration completlly. This makes it hard to plan youre week based on the todos you have.

Please built this in. As fahr as I know CalDav is a standard. So by implementing this you should enable this Feature for a lot of programs.
