Macro in Outlook that will let me save straight to Toodledo (wit
I've looked at the Toodledo Outlook Sync Tool, and it seems to work well. However, I want to avoid Outlook task management completely and just use Toodledo.
I'm wondering if anyone has developed an Outlook macro that will let me click a button to save an email directly to Toodledo as a new task. Or, if anyone has any pointers to get me started, I would appreciate that, too.
I'm looking for something just like the Firefox button that allows you to Toodledo something on a page or an entire page.
I was looking for something a bit more automated. But, I can use your suggestion to create a little macro in Outlook to forward an email to Toodledo. Nice and simple.
Thanks for your suggestion!
There is already a Macro which does this, but unfortunately each time I post the link it gets corrupted. Search for Mark Grimes in the forum and it comes up.
It works reasonably well -- although I too fancied something more automated.
I created a Outlook Form and Macro that runs within Outlook. If you select a mailnote and then click on the macro button, it pops up a form very similar to the Firefox "add task form". You can then pre-fill in various fields - Next Action, folder, status, context, tag, days to remind, etc - and it creates the task in Outlook for you. You can then use the outlook sync tool to sync with the main website -- it creates fields called tdcontext and tdtag, so it interfaces quite well with Toodledo.
It was my first attempt at a Outlook Custom Form and Macro -- I pulled lots of code from the web and patched it all together, but I can share the code if anyone is interested (I also need to work out how to share the form)
