The companion blog to Remember The Milk, the best way to manage your tasks.




Show tasks on your calendar

Monday, April 17, 2006 by Omar Kilani

The iCalendar service now features the ability to export tasks as events. This means that you can view your tasks with calendar software such as Google Calendar, Apple iCal and Mozilla Sunbird, which will normally only display events (and not tasks) on the calendar.

To access your tasks as events, simply add events to the end of the iCalendar feed of your choice, and subscribe to the feed in your calendar software. For example, to retrieve all tasks as events, subscribe to: webcal://

Only tasks with due dates will be shown as events.

(Please note that Google Calendar does not support authenticated iCalendar feeds as yet, so only published lists will work with it for now.)

Update: The subscription process has now been made easier, and detailed instructions are available.


One of our users, Antonella Pavese, has posted a nice interview with us (and Bob T.) on her site.

Leo Laporte and Amber MacArthur covered Remember The Milk on Call for Help. There's also a transcript of the show if you didn't get to see it.

More updates soon…
