Outlook Calendar Sync with ToDoIst

I have added ToDoIst via iCal as a calendar to outlook.
So far this works great.
Out of your Video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzGubOy8GuE ) I learned that the calendar will automatically be updated when I make changes in ToDoIst.
This is just working, if I restart Outlook.

Is there a way that I instruct Outlook to refresh every 10 Min. ( or similar ) ?

Hello Reiner,

Outlook should sync the calendar each time you use send/receive. You can configure when it should send/receive everything automatically in Options -> Advanced -> Send/Receive

Is it possible to make outlook calender send to my todoist tasl list, so all meetings appear on my todoist?

Best Regards

Hello Rune,

That's unfortunately not possible only a one-way sync from Todoist to Outlook's Calendar is now supported.

That is most unfortunate. Is it on the feature backlog?

As a workaround, is there any way to manually create Todoist tasks based on Outlook calendar events? Same as you would for an email (right-click, add todoist)?

Hello John,

Unfortunately, there is no workaround for it right now and we're unsure when we'll add such option, but we'll consider it for future updates.

Thanks David - as an additional note for anyone reading this, I modified the macro created by Gergely - http://todoist.com/Support/show/43762/ - and it works as advertised. A worthwhile workaround while we await its inclusion in the product.
