Love the app, having a web interface & syching with outlook is most of what I'm looking for...

...however most of my action items originate from mail which I get in outlook. I use the flag to make these mails an Outlook 'To-do' & then clean out the inbox. I can synch my tasks with Todeldo but not the To-Do items, can you add support for To-do's?

This would be a question for the developer of the Outlook sync tool.

Synchronizing items from the To Do list will not be supported.

This is because Outlook marks any object with a pending action as a Todo item and this includes mail. The Toodledosync application only understands how to process Outlook tasks and therefore will not be able to process the other items. Adding this functionality would pretty much double the size of the code base and this isn't something that I have the bandwidth to do, sorry.

Hi There,
I normally drag the email to my Task list and it automatically coverts it to a task item. I then change the subject to reflect what the next action is (just read the Dave Allen book) and then it successfully syncs with ToodleDo.
Hope this helps
