    Default Thunderbird - Lightning Tasks

    Hello,

    I'm using Thunderbird/Lightning to sync my calender but I'm unable to sync my Tasks.

    Can anyone help me, If I create a Tasks on the Webinterface, I can't see it in Thunderbird.

    Regards - Willi

    I have the same problem:
    • Zimbra tasks (created in Zimbra) ar not visible in Thunderbird,
    • Thunderbird tasks (created in TB, using Zimbra Calendar) stay in TB and are not visible in Zimbra.


    OS: Linux (amd64)
    Thunderbird: 2.0.0.18
    Lightning: 0.8

    (and I experienced the same behavior on a Windows system, with even e newer Lightning (0.9).

    Default Workaround

    I noticed that Zimbra uses a separate ICS file to store tasks. Tasks stored in Calendar(s) are ignored by Zimbra.

    Thus, you have to add a second calendar in Lightning:

    Code:
    https://<server>/home/<username>/Tasks
    This is just a workaround because it is not comfortable to work in Lightning this way: you have to specify the according calendar for each appointment/task.

    Does anyone see a solution to this?

    I don't have a solution but another observation is that if you search for a task by name within zimbra, it will turn up and will even be identified as a task.

    Also, iCal appears to store tasks in the same place as Lightning--each can see tasks created by the other.

    Anyone managed to find a decent way to use thunderbird/ical as well as the web gui without having to remember to choose the correct calendar?
