Google Tasks sync

twisted_daemon says:
First of all. I love the RTM Calender functionality available on GCal. Works great.

However now Google has it's own task list functionality that doesn't sync with RTM.

Is there a way to set it up? Or is this featuer on the way?

I say the main advantage that google tasks has over RTM's view in google calendar is that rather than having to click the checkbox, you can see your tasks for a given day at-a-glance, in line with your appointments and meetings. I'd love to have that functionality with RTM!

Timothyadam - You may wish to tryout the original method of Gcal integration, which gives you some of what you ask for.

Since Google has yet to release its Tasks API, there's no way for RTM and Google Tasks to communicate. But I'm confident that once the API is out there, Bob will hook us up.

In the meantime, you can try the aforementioned Gcal integration from ranbarton's post, or this little gem I found today:

Basically, by simply navigating to the URL below, you can use the Gmail RTM gadget from within Google calendar.

What a good news too see the Google Tasks API coming alive ! I'm sure there is a really great mashup to develop with it !
I would be really happy to be able to sync the two services.

I too am anxious for this function. API inter-op is the only missing link for RTM to dominate this niche. Especially for BB users, and Im sure others agree for their device/config. Essential.

I'd love to see this happen; however, does Google Tasks support all RTM features? It doesn't seem to be able to handle repeating tasks and tags among other things.

This hasn't come out yet right? I'd like for the CalenGoo iPhone app to display the RTM tasks in the calendar itself (as of now, it doesn't show the tasks themselves in the CalenGoo... not sure if that's a settings issue on my part or if it's that CalenGoo is only able to display the tasks from Google Tasks..."

So.... what's the word on getting RTM to sync with Google Tasks? I was planning to upgrade to pro in order to set up RTM and Google Tasks as my main system for "Getting Things Done." But I need RTM to sync with Google Tasks. Is that going to happen? Thanks!

chris.alan.myers says:
I've been struggling with a way to simplify my life... I use Gmail to sync my email with Thunderbird on two different computers and my android phone because its a whole lot cheaper than Outlook and has more tools for email than the Gmail site. I use Google Calendars which are fully integrated into Thunderbird to share events and appointments with my android phone and my wife. For tasks, I...?????? I'm stuck. There does not seem to be a full functioning yet reasonably priced email client out there that can sync email, calendars, contacts AND TASKS in a user-friendly way between an Android phone and multiple computers.

I was hoping Thunderbird and RTM could help, but RTM can't see Google Tasks and an administrator has disabled the Remember The Milk extension for Thunderbird.

...a swing and a miss.

ddumont says:
It would be great to have the tasks show up directly into the Native Gmail Tasks. I have some users that use GASMO (Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook) and that syncs with the RTM Tasks with Google Tasks but it requires a computer to be on and sort of removes the "Cloud" which is bad. I vote for having RTM build in an interface to Google Tasks directly.

Thanks

Man, this would be so helpful if RTM would just sync with Google Tasks. It would literally make everything a thousand times easier. COME ON GUYS!!!
Posted 3 years ago
mattylight says:
While you are waiting for synchronization, you can use the iCal links in your lists to add them to Google Calendar so that your tasks will display there like gTasks does.

My solution:
- Search for "status:incomplete" in RTM and then make that a "Smart Lists"
- Copy the iCalendar (Events) link and add it to Google Calendar
- Add the RTM Google Calendar App for easy editing (http://www.rememberthemilk.com/services/googlecalendar/)

Hope this helps some of those out there until this becomes native!

cheek says:
I'd love this too, but unfortunately I don't see it happening guys. RTM is a paid service, and syncing with a free service kind of devalues their proposition. In a more direct way, it also subverts their pro- requirement for mobile access.

As a former pro- (now gtasks) user, I also have to say that the standards for a paid service are higher. For me, to trust my data with your service, you have to have both solid official offerings, and great interopability. To RTMs credit, they put a lot of effort into integration offerings and an API, but I never could RTM to work for me as well as the simple gmail + gtasks. Gtasks also has the advantage that it's google, and inherently has lots of integration and third party offerings. I've never enjoyed rtms website; it definitely needs an update, and the apps have taken a long time to get really good.

With this RTM will be perfect for my use, as I still like google to be my main data provider. I will return and use RTM then possible.
Put this in the Pro account, and you will get a lot of pro subscriptions

Another bonus to this is that Google Tasks has good keyboard shortcuts inside the gmail web interface which makes adding/completing tasks really easy. A sync with RTM would be fantastic.

Send email to RTM and create GTask

ledhed2222 says:
The reason why this would be great, is that (I believe) it would allow me to add a reminder to an email from Google Inbox (the Gmail replacement) and it would show up in my RTM default list for triage.
