This is exactly what I want. Ok, GTD is not about alarms, but maybe I am not such a GTD samurai so I need at least some reminders. This solutions you talk about is the one I need but is there a way to do it from inside OF or I need to switch to Ical everytime?
I think I suggested a solution elsewhere, but here we go again.
For me, the simplest solution is for OF to assign alarms to each task that can be passed onto iCal when we synchronize OF with iCal.
In other words, alarms will go off in iCal, but not in OF (thus not violating the sanctity of GTD, which I think should be viewed as a tool, not a unbreakable rule), but folks who need reminders (for those of us who manage multiple projects, tasks, and roles in our lives) will still get reminders.
Seems like a win-win solution to me.
