Quickstart for TaskToCal

Start TaskToCal for Outlook

Open your Outlook after you've installed 'TaskToCal'. First of all you will see a reminder that you use a trial edition if you didn't buy TaskToCal already.

If you use Outlook 2000, Outlook 2002, Outlook 2003 or Outlook 2007 then you see a new command bar for TaskToCal.

TaskToCal works in the background. Every time you add or modify a task which has a due date, a start date or a reminder date then a appointment will be created in your calendar.

At the first start your default Task folder is connected with your default Calendar folder.
You can see or change this combination by clicking on the menu 'TaskToCal' > 'Manage Task-Calendar combinations'.

If you want to link another calendar folder to your task folder then edit the combination. Alternatively you can add other additionally combinations.

TaskToCal itself works in the background without any user interaction.

Let's look at an example:
You want to call a client on 3/15/2010 at 10:00 AM. Create a task with the reminder at 10:00 AM.

Create Outlook Task

When you save this task then a new appointment will be created in your Outlook calendar:

What happens if you move your task in your calendar?
