Backing up pure tasks...!??

wolffrtm says:
Hello there, I am new to RTM and tried to figure out how to back up pure tasks (which I have a lot in my lists). I understand that I should be able to do this using iCalendar, and this works perfectly with events. Should it work with unscheduled tasks as well?
Thanks for some detailled advice.

OK. I guess that iCalendar does _not_ backup tasks without due dates. At least not in Outlook 2007. Outlook expects dates to be there... Anyone else to confirm this?

And any other possibility to backup task...!?

Hi wolffrtm,

The process described here will include all tasks and notes (both with and without due dates).

To view this file in another program, your software will need to be able to handle an iCalendar file that contains tasks (I'm not too sure about Outlook's iCalendar support, sorry). You could always try something like Mozilla Sunbird to open the file.

Hope this helps!
