Updating Outlook calendar

Hi there, I've just upgraded and added the todoist outlook plug-in which looks really promising.

I really want to be able to see my tasks in the calendar. But as I update tasks with new deadlines in the outlook sidebar, these changes are not reflected in the calendar.

I now have two views in outlook which are inconsistent - the sidebar shows one thing and the calendar a different deadline.

Hello James,

Please clarify - have you installed our plugin, but not imported your tasks using iCal to the calendar or did you use both? Please take a look at this video to see how you can view your tasks in the calendar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzGubOy8GuE

The changes in the calendar should update as you use "Send/Receive" in Outlook or after you close and reopen Outlook.

Best regards,

Hi David,

thanks for the prompt reply.

firstly an update - it's updated. whilst I was at lunch. Now the two views are synchronised.

secondly, to answer your question, i've done both.

Is there any setting I can adjust to make the 'send/receive' run more frequently?

Thanks - J
