Syncing With BusyCal

J

As a calendar app I use Busycal (Mac) as I like the way it allows ToDos and Events to be dealt with on the same day/week/month view unlike iCal. This makes balancing workload really easy, however I've gone over to Todoist for to dos and having set up the link to BusyCal my ToDos just dump into the due date as all day events. Timed events go into calendar which is fab but Todos lose all colour/project detail. Any chance of a workaround for the ToDos?

Why would I want that? - It makes balancing workload a lot easier when it's laid out in a week/month view - just drag and drop.

If you're not thinking of working with anybody else what about developing a simple calendar app that plays well with ToDoist? :-)

Hi John,

Our iCal integration is fairly simple and there isn't much customization or information, it is simple. We hope to improve calender options in the future but at the moment there isn't anything that can be done.

Regards,
Brendon.

So Brendon, unlike John I cannot even get it to sync my todo's etc into the calendar. I am happy to go back to the standard iMac calendar if it gets the todoist program working... please help me get this linked somehow as I do not use google calendar etc .

Hello Larry,

Unfortunately, we're not fully familiar with every calendar software, but please tell me - at what point are you experiencing the issue? Can yo not find the option to subscribe to a calendar in BusyCal or can you find it, bur when you paste the iCal URL it shows you an error message or crashes or what happens exactly?

As a general tip - please try to paste the feed replacing https:// with webcal://


Best regards,
David
