Well, I am giving up on my Outlook / Toodledo / GotToDo mess - I lost most of the repeat attributes on my tasks. I realize Toodledo does not make the sync components - but Outlook is my main task manager, and if I cannot rely on this all working, it's so long Toodledo and GotToDo. I wonder if I can get back the money I just wasted on my recently renewed Pro subscription.

I suspect it's Chromatic Dragon's sync component between Outlook and Toodledo - it's always been troublesome, often not moving updates from Toodledo down to Outlook ... but WHO KNOWS? There is no way to debug this kludge, no logging of sync activity, ...

Frustrated!!

Anyone know how to use the recovery options in Chromatic Dragon sync "correctly"? The only info online is "This is a dangerous option that will almost certainly create many duplicate tasks if used incorrectly."

I have a problem where sometimes tasks created on my Android phone, synced to Toodledo using Got To Do, do NOT get sync'ed to Outlook. If I update them in Toodledo, they will sync. Usually, they do sync to Outlook properly without the Toodledo update. I don't know what causes this - but when I discover it, I would like to force a full sync. Can the recovery options do this?

Hmm .. this is working now. I did have to restart it - and I restarted it differently, so that may be it. I'll see what happens after a clean boot.

The reason I had to restart - not sure anyone else has run into this - is, if I have the app window open, and I shut it down with F4, or I think, the X in the upper right, then the NEXT time I try to open the window, I get a .NET Framework error, saying it cannot access the disposed object, named 'frmOptions.' The Continue button does nothing, so I click Quit, and then restart Toodledosync.

It seems like this was working - but now I get the above error in the trace output IF OUTLOOK IS RUNNING WHEN I DO A SYNC. If I shut down Outlook, it syncs OK.

Interestingly, I have basically the same problem with Hotsync. It gets an error (not much detail that I remember) if Outlook is running - works OK if I shut Outlook down. So there could be something weird in my system.

I tried shutting down my firewall and my anti-virus - no change. I am using Outlook 2007 on Vista, and Toodledosync 0.9.9.6.

Any ideas?
Thanks

sorry - "check" is part of the task subject - should have deleted that from the example log.

So it's:
SynchLib:addTaskItemsToContextList() preferring incomplete recurring task xxxxxxx

Well, I just waited for the 15 minute sync interval I specified in options, to expire, and it seems to have updated fine. Sorry about that - just too impatient!

One other thing - just curious what this message means:
SynchLib:addTaskItemsToContextList() preferring incomplete recurring task check xxxxxx

"preferring"?

xxxxxx is a recurring task in outlook - set to repeat 30 days after completion - and I had just marked the current one as complete.

Thanks

I'll run some more tests.

Its funny - I grew up on small, and then large, IBM mainframes - and I am used to things happening when you do them - or, at least, you have to wait until the processing is done, before you get to do something else. Its pretty different now.

I remember running some tests a while back on delicious.com - a bookmark web site. I was testing searches - I would update the comments and tags on a bookmark, then do a search - and it would not find it. Wait a few minutes - do the search again - and find what I had entered. I realized they must have some background index updating going on - while I assumed any index was updated as soon as I clicked save.

Anyway, I will report back.

Anyone else having this problem - I created a task on outlook - it synced to Toodledo - I marked it complete on Toodledo - ran a sync - the Outlook task is still incomplete. I updated the task subject on Toodledo - ran another sync - Outlook task updated and marked complete.

Could this be related to the setting I used of "Ignore existing completed tasks"? I thought that was only to reduce the data synced initially.

Partial logs are below. Task is "another sample task".
Thanks
Dan

The first sync's log showed this:

The second one showed this:

Please ignore this - I would delete it if I could - it turned out to be a filter - all the tasks synced.

Sorry!

Original message:
-----------------

I just installed Outlook Sync for the first time - I disabled Automatic Sync until I could check it out - I ran a Manual Sync from the File menu - and it synced about 20 tasks, then stopped - saying Sync was complete in the status bar. I re-ran it - got 15 more. Ran it again - 12 more.

I turned on the trace, and it runs a while, then says:
StateCreatedOnOutlook():Maximum Toodledo updates exceeded for this cycle. Skipping

I also checked the tasks in Outlook, and it looks like they are being modifed - at least, the modified date is set. No obvious changes. And it sounds like the message is saying that *outlook* updates have been exceeded, not toodledo updates.

Anyway - anyone else seen this? Is there a max updates it will do in Outlook - perhaps to avoid problems like everything being deleted?

I can keep running the sync - but I thought I would ask here. BTW, I have 145 tasks in Outlook.

Sven - I am pretty new to Toodledo, but I created and saved a search that does what you suggested - select with no completion date, and (no due date, or a due date on or before tomorrow) - and I think that will be my most common way of using toodledo. I can also sort it the way I want - priority major, then whatever other field you want - and it saves that as well.

I was testing another task manager (Remember the Milk) and they actually have the concept of a smart search, that looks just like another view - I ALMOST liked Toodledo's Importance field, but it did not quite do what I want - now this saved search seems to meet my needs.

Hope this helps.
Dan
