iCal Sync - Publish Blocked Actions? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I looked through the rest of the forum and did a search, but couldn't find any information relating to this. Anyone know what the "Publish blocked actions" preference checkbox in the iCal sync preferences does? I have it checked, but I can't really seem to notice a difference. What is a "blocked action"?
funny-- I just downloaded an update that said:

blocked actions once again draw with the appropriate style.
I searched the forums trying to find out what a blocked action is. . . anyone have an answer?
A blocked action is any incomplete action that isn't currently available. There are several reasons an action might not be available:
  • It might have a start date that's in the future (or be in a project or action group which has a start date in the future). Once that date is reached, it will become available.
  • It might be in a sequential project or action group, and the earlier actions in the group are not yet complete. Once you finish the prerequisite actions (or change the group to allow parallel actions), it will become available.
  • It might not have a context assigned, or might be assigned to a context which is inactive or does not allow next actions. It will need to be assigned to a different context (or the context settings will need to change) before it becomes available again.
  • It might be in a project that's on hold, or in a folder that's marked inactive. It will become available again once you make its project active.

Hope this helps!
