How to use Toodledo with Apple iCal
This tutorial will show you how to subscribe to your Toodledo tasks inside Apple's iCal calendar program. Keep in mind that the subscription protocol is a one way synchronization from Toodledo to iCal. Any changes that you make inside iCal will not be reflected on Toodledo.
Enabling iCal Subscriptions
Click on the "Tools" menu at the top of the page and then click "More...". On the following page click on the "Calendar" section. Click the checkbox next to "Enable Live iCal Link" and then click the "Save Changes" button.
This will publish your tasks on the internet in a file that can be read by iCal. You will see several links appear in this section. Keep these links secret, because anyone know knows them will be able to read your tasks.
Picking the Right Link
Once you enable iCal Subscriptions, you will see several different possible links. The two that you should consider are the ones labeled "Apple's iCal" and 'To-dos only".
- Apple's iCal - Any tasks that have a due-date will appear on your calendar and tasks without a due-date will appear in the to-do list. If your task has a due-date, but no due-time, it will appear as an all day event.
- To-dos only - All tasks will appear on the to-do list, and none of them will be put on the calendar.
Subscribing in iCal
Once you have picked the link that you want to use, copy it onto your clipboard. Then switch to iCal and select "Subscribe" from the "Calendar" menu. A box will appear where you can paste or type in the link. Click the "Subscribe" button.
Now, a window will appear with lots of settings. There is one important setting to change. Under "Remove" there is checkbox labeled "To Do items". Be sure to uncheck this checkbox. You may also want to set your subscription to auto-refresh. We suggest setting this to "every hour".
