Custom Filter (Sync Tasks to/from iCal) doesn't work in Omniplan 2.0 GM (w Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
To whom it may concern:

I was part of your Omniplan 2.0 beta, and was very excited about one specifiic feature which promises to solve a huge problem for me. I tested the feature and it worked great in the latest Beta build of Omniplan 2.0. But ever since I installed the GM version of Omniplan 2.0 it simply does not work. Please review the before and after steps to reproduce and let me know at your earliest convenience if this is a known issue and how I can get to a resolution as soon as possible:

In OmniPlan 2.0 Beta

1) Open a project that has multiple tasks with different deadlines, assigned to different resources (let's call them Task 1, 2, 3, 4 assigned to Resource 1, 2, 3, and 4 respectively)
2) In iCal, set up a MobileMe account that has the following 4 calendars:
Resource 1 Deadlines
Resource 2 Deadlines
Resource 3 Deadlines
Resource 4 Deadlines
3) Share this calendar with each of the 4 resources, and set the sharing preferences to read/write for each of them.
4) Back in Omniplan 2.0 - from the menu bar, choose Project - > Configure Publishing and & Subscriptions...
5) From the + button, choose Sync tasks to/from iCal events
6) From the Calendar: drop-down in the top right, choose "Resource 1 Deadlines"
7) From the Filter: drop-down, choose Custom:
If All of the following are true:
Resource is Resource 1
8) Repeat steps 5-7 above for Resource 2, 3, and 4
9) Click the OK button
10) Save your project to trigger the syncing of tasks to iCal events.

in iCal - Task 1 shows up in the Resource 1 Deadlines calendar, Task 2 shows up in the Resource 2 Deadlines calendar, and so forth.

In Omniplan 2.0 GM

Follow steps 1-10 above.

in iCal - nothing shows up at all.

1) Now, go back to Configure Publishing & Subscriptions...
2) Select the first "Sync tasks to/from iCal events" settings, and from the Filter: drop-down choose "None" instead of "Custom"
3) Click the OK button
4) Save your project to trigger the syncing of tasks to iCal events.

Now, in iCal all of the Tasks (1-4) show up in the Task 1 Deadlines

So, it seems with the GM version - the sync to/from iCal events feature only works when you choose not to use a filter. This makes this feature useless to me.

Please help!
