A way to synchronize from iCal into inbox? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hi.

I'm looking for a way to synchronize ToDos from a specific calendar in iCal into OF Inbox..
I'm gathering inbox items throughout the day into my cellphone, that gets synced into a special calendar in iCal and I would love to sync that further into OF to process it. I am doing it manually now which is really annoying.

ANy suggestions?

thanks a lot

jan
 
I thought sync was supposed to go both ways, otherwise it could be done with Applescript...

Have you set up the sync prefs?

-P
 
yeah. i played with it a bit and found out that it kind of works if I set up a context that is used only for importing the calendar. than it gets synced into OF inbox and I can process that.. The only thing that remains unnecessary or weird is that I have to keep a special context for this..

In other words - I was looking for a way to synchronize directly into the inbox without using a context..
 
It can be done when coupled with Anxiety.app. I've been playing with it and it works great in unison with OmniFocus. If you create a new task in Anxiety, it syncs with iCal and will end up in your inbox in OmniFocus on next calendar sync.

seems to be a day of Anxiety
this is the fourth time I met this app today - seems like a sign I should really check it out...:))

Seems to work here (OS X 10.4.11): I add a to-do in a calendar I set up to sync with a specific Context in OF, hit the sync button, the task appears in OFs Inbox with the Context set to the one I wanted it to.

Or have I misunderstood your problem?

Cheers,

Yes, Anxiety works when adding a new action. A test action added in Anxiety ended up in the inBox. I then deleted it in OF, synced and (as expected) was gone from iCal. Invoke Anxiety and it's gone there as well. Neat.

yes.yes. it works this way perfectly. but I was missing an option to sync iCal calendar directly with inbox.. didn't think of the context workaround. thanks everyone.
My workflow is much more neat now:))

btw: Anxiety looks cool except it's 10.5 only and I'm not ready to switch yet. will have to wait..

I have used Anxiety today, successfully, and I have 10.5.1.

[edited] Oh, I think I see what you mean - you aren't up to 10.5+ yet.
 
I had a chat with Tom this morning and what's really interesting is that he doesn't even have a copy of OmniFocus. He developed Anxiety which uses leopards new system wide database and OmniFocus plays nicely with it too.
