Sync Conduit for .Mac? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Greetings,
I use OmniFocus, both at work and home, and keeping them synchronized without physically synchronizing with my Palm, is difficult. Have you folks considered a .Mac conduit just for the OmniFocus? I've found that synching with .Mac and iCal and thence to OmniFocus does not seem to work reliably.
Otherwise I loe OmniFocus and I have had no real problems thus far.

Ad Astra Per Aspera,
Kevin
 
I agree. I have a laptop that I use for work and a iMac at home. I would like to sync them, so that both show the same projects, actions and review dates.

Has the OF staff consider a .Mac conduit?
 
This is essential to me, too. Quote: "There will be no built-in support for synchronizing computers,..." I can accept that, but synchronization with iCal should be "intelligent", so that new entries in iCal (e.g. after a .Mac synchronization with my home computer) are added in OmniFocus and not deleted in iCal. If this isn't possible, I'm sorry to say that the application is not useful to me.

I don't want to be overblown, but this is true for me too. Part of the point of the app is to manage your tasks in different contexts. If it only works on one machine, it's limited to one context (that machine).

I've been trying to sync using FolderShare and it's very difficult for some reason. OF is very finicky about changes to the .ofocus package.

If I do synchronize with iCal, will that let me sync everything? All the data I put into OF including the project structure, contexts, etc?

Also, I'm using www.icalx.com to synch my iCal calendar at the moment. It seems that OF will create a local calendar for each context. Does that mean I need to publish each context as it is added? That could get tedious. Does iMac handle that more automatically?
