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 tasks management. The following systems are often used by developers, either collective or personal:
- Trac is an enhanced wiki and issue tracking system for software development projects.
- Microsoft Outlook 2007 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 requests periodically Trac URLs, defined as tasks sources at preferences and creates / updates tasks in the Outlook database. The following information is used for synchronization:
- Title. Trac project (source name) is included as prefix to title in Outlook.
- Ticket body.
- Some additional attributes like Milestone, Version, Component are saved as part of body.
Imported task will be assigned to category defined for task source. In case, when ticket is closed/reassigned at Trac, a related Outlook task will also be closed. Now SyncIT support Trac, dotProject and Google code hosting.
Issues or functional enhancements could previously be reported on the Google code issues page. This site has now been made read-only, and you may still find archived tickets here.
If you have any issues, create a new ticket.
