Outlook task management integration

Notice: This program is hosted here, but the source code and executable are uploaded here also just in case the project page ever disappears.


This plugin is about managing Trac tickets as Outlook tasks. The following systems are often used by developers, either collectively or personal:

  • Trac is an enhanced wiki and issue tracking system for software development projects.
  • Microsoft Outlook is a tool that, in addition to mail management, features the ability to organize your time with Tasks and a Calendar.

There are many teams that use Trac to track tickets within project and many developers which use Outlook for time management. They would like to have Trac tickets as personal Outlook tasks. Now it is possible with AnjLab SyncIT. It is a program that works in the background and is visible in the Windows tray. It periodically requests Trac URLs, defined as tasks sources at preferences and creates / updates tasks in the Outlook database. The following information is used for synchronization:

  • Title: a Trac project (source name) is included as prefix to a title in Outlook.
  • Priority.
  • Ticket body.
  • Some additional attributes like Milestone, Version, Component are saved as part of body.

The imported task will be assigned to a category defined for task source. In case when the ticket is closed/reassigned within Trac, a related Outlook task will also be closed. Now SyncIT support Trac, dotProject and Google code hosting.
