Can I sync Tasks to iCal? [A:OmniFocus exports due date reminders.] Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hi all,

My Setup:

Latest OmniFocus
MacMail with Exchange 2010
iCal with Exchange 2010

I would love to be able to get my tasks from OF that has a start, due date or both synced to my iCal calendar.

In this way i wouldnt need to add them manualy into iCal.
Is this possible?

Please someone.

All the best / M
Happy to help! As part of the sync process, OmniFocus can export reminder events for to iCal that represent the due dates on your actions. (Note that exporting is one-way, vs. a two-way sync; OmniFocus does not do the latter.)

If you check the "Publish Due reminders as a calendar" box in Sync Preferences, then press the "Subscribe in iCal" button, deadline reminder events will appear in iCal.

I believe there's a feature request open on exporting reminder events for start dates, as well; if that would be useful, email the support ninjas and ask to be attached to that feature request.

We're unlikely to export events that span from the start date to the due date, though. Imagine a "Pay Taxes" task that starts in January and is due in April - now think about what that would do to your calendar. :-)
I am using this feature now but find one big problem: a task group has a due date, the subtasks do not each have a due date, but each subtask appears in iCal--oh the clutter! Seems this sync should only include items to which I have explicitly assigned a due date.
