    Extreme Tasks

    Brian--Still having trouble with the tasks. I deleted about half my 720 from Outlook to help relieve the problem. When Active Synch kicked in, it locked down and kept reading "processing" beside of Tasks. After leaving it "processing" for around an hour, I finally shut the Q and my desktop down, unloaded EA, then powered up and re-synced. Went fine that time.

    Haven't had any problems with the rest of the calendar or contacts. The new views and search were great. But my 720 tasks just choked it down. I would really love to run this program, but its making me a little nervous. Just haven't had any task issues with the Palm or the crappy MS version.

    Any suggestions?

    Is it choking during a sync now? If so, just shut down XA while synching.
    And let me know so I can address this .... I had put something in for this,
    but Im wondering if it isnt working as it should....

    Thanks

    Any chance on a future version of xA incorporating its own homescreen plugin, similar to the way Facade displays appointments/tasks? I really like the way Facade does it, but I find it bogs down the Q.

    The "2" button takes you to today's date in most views. (And as I am sure you realize, the Space Bar toggles the preview pane on and off)

    HTH!:smile:

    ETA: I'm referring to XA.

    The #2 button takes you to the today page ONLY if "today" is the date already highlighted on the month screen. If the highlighted date on the month screen is something other than "today", the #2 button will highlight "today" and stay on the month screen.

    What gw said. I like the 2 button feature b/c it FIRST takes you to "today" in whichever particular view you are looking at (e.g. Week, Month) then you can press it again to go to the Day view of Today.

    I have requested that Brian consider putting the Day view as one available when you press the left key b/c I sometimes like to view one day on one page. It's hard to do that on dates way in the future if you have to go to Today's date first. [/aside]

    OK. I asked which app because Papyrus has similar functonality. The 2 key takes you to today in whichever calendar view you happen to be in. The left soft key rotates through the different views. 1 and 3 move back/forward one month. 4, 5 and 6 take you directly to daily, weekly and monthly views.

    Thanks Birdsoft, anyone considering an alternative to Extreme Agenda needs to be aware that Extreme Agenda has the best customer service of any software product I have ever used, just mention a feature that you and most others would like having and Birdsoft is all over it with an update if it's reasonable, Thanks again!:laugh2:

    Is there anyway to have a Task reminder go off at a certain time on the due date. When I input a task with a due date it will allow me to ask for a reminder but I dont ever get notified. It also will only allow a reminder for a day not a paticular time of day.

    It's really nifty. Saves me from having to try to remember speed dial numbers and from having to use the Voice Non-Recognition software! :)
