Has anyone been using the iCal Sync functionality? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I am just curious to hear how things have worked. Thanks!
 
To be honest, I have not since I haven't had the time to take all the precausions.

If anyone has it would be nice to know what type of data it produces.

One thing I've noticed is that it creates an iCal calendar for each of my context groups (in addition to one for each of the contexts therein). There doesn't yet seem to be a way to select which contexts get synced.
 
That is a start.

I will try it in the morning.

Like Craig found, iCal had a calendar for each context.
 
Newbie iCal sync question. I use Palm Desktop, and DateBk6 -- a Palm Date Book enhancment app (I love it). How well will OmniFocus, via iCal, sync with DateBk6? Currently, I just sync with Palm Desktop, and any DateBk6-specific features are not seen in Palm Desktop Date Book, but nothing is lost in translation -- i.e., if an event in DateBk6 that has DateBk6-specific data is synched to Palm Desktop, then, say, moved to a different time -- when the event is then synched back to DateBk6, the orginal DateBk6-specific data maintains the roundtrip unscathed. Thanks.

At one point I wound up with two each of every context as a OF:abc calendar. That's been the only glitch.
 
I'm completely new here (Omni Focus as well as GTD) and am slowly getting my head round it all so please excuse the potential idiocy of this question: is iCal even necessary if I can set all my events in OF?
 
You may elect to "Do" out of iCal (most here don't) instead of out of the OF Context view but mostly iCal becomes an avenue for moving tasks between a PDA and OF.

In iCal I have several Calendars and a companion for To Do's (ie, Work and OF:Work). The Calendar items do not sync to OF but the To Do's/Tasks in the OF: Work "calendar" do sync.

I've regretted it ever since I clicked the button.

I just don't want all that stuff cluttering up my iCal.
