Sync Remember the Milk With Outlook

8 Comments

If you’re an Outlook (s msft) user and also a fan of Remember the Milk, you might like to check out SprinxCRM’s OutlookSync for the popular to-do list/task management app. It’s an add-on for Outlook that enables two-way synchronization of tasks between the two apps, and includes support for RTM’s smart lists, which get added to Outlook as categories.

I tried it out and it works pretty well, although the sync process does take quite a while, even with only a few tasks to sync. However, if you’re an Outlook user who likes to keep their tasks in the cloud, it may provide a useful workaround (and if you’re into the cloud, you really should check out our Structure conference in June).

Let us know what you think of SprinxCRM’s OutlookSync for Remember the Milk in the comments.

Simon, thank you very much for mentioning my work. Also if you interested try the latest version, it is much faster now.

David – I decided not to install because of privacy concerns. The API said it would be able to access, view, delete tasks. What can you say to address these issues? Thanks.

DEG – I totally understand your privacy concerns. Yes, you (and API) are right, the synchronization utility is basically reading tasks in both Outlook and Remember The Milk on your behalf, comparing them and copying the changes. But that all is done on your computer and if you do not want to report errors, no data are ever sent to any other place. I think this is pretty similar to e.g. how Google Calendar Sync works.
