RTM on google desktop

matelich says:
I didn't find this in searching the site, so I thought I would post it for others. The iGoogle gadget can also be used in google desktop on your sidebar.

1) click the + on the sidebar to add gadgets
2) Paste into the search field and hit enter
3) Click add and login.
4) joy

I was curious about this. I have added the gadget to google desktop but it still shows items that I have marked completed on my list and doesn't have what I've added for today.

I had to laugh. The RTM message is, oops your application made a mistake, contact the developer. Well that is them AFAIK.

hmmm ... i clicked login and nothing happens. No new tab in browser even. Would really love to have it on the desktop so I don't have to have my browser open at all times.

I have the RTM desktop app running but it has some annoying features. My main beef with it is that the GUI isn't designed for sidebar viewing and wastes space.

For example, too large chunks of the visible window are wasted on the date string and "Overdue/Today..." headers. Additionally, there is no way of scrolling to see all TODO items, if they don't fit into your vertical space.

CATsoft has a fairly usable gadget, although read-only. At least you can keep an eye on tasks without a browser.

After Installation open the options dialog. There should be a link called "Click here to authorize...". When clicking on the link the browser opens and you can allow the gadget to access your data. See a screencast about the use here:

The add button was inactive for me. I am trying out the google gadget promoted by arthurhch, but would like something official for sure.
