Import or sync tasks with Outlook on Windows
I would like to have te ability to sync tasks with Outlook tasks or, at least, import them from time to time.
Would be nice to have a seamless integration between TaskCoach and Outlook as OneNote and Outlook have it. That would allow to easily link back and forth between TaskCoach and Outlook. Additionally (and to make the integration even better) I would prefer to have tasks with start & end dates being propagated directly into the Outlook calendar.
What drag and drop does with an outlook (2003) task: it attaches it as a pointer to a eml file which outlook generates in a temporary folder. What I expected was: it enters a sub task with descriptions, due-date, percentage complete, estimated effort and so on mapped to the respective fields.
I see the problem: the file is no export of the outlook task, but only contains a subject and an outlook internal ID.
Is calendar synching of any kind in the offing, with email reminders?

Try to drag and drop the mail to an empty area of Task Coach's task viewer; this should create a new task with the mail attached. I only tested this with Outlook 2003 though.

Currently in Outlook 2007 I can mark any mail by flag and task creates in To-Do list of Outlook. It is very usefull. I don't need to create new task and fill all the data.
I need exactly such an integration between Task Coach and Outlook. It would optimaze 90% of all my task creations.
