I am having difficulty syncing my Task app with Outlook. My Outlook is connected to my phone's Window's Live account (I am using a Windows Phone 7). When I enter the server name (m.hotmail.com) I receive a synchronization error that  says Task cannot find the specified host. Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks.

Hello,

We do not support WindowsLive. We support only Office365.com or self hosted Microsoft Exchange server 2007SP1+.

This is the reason why you can not sync.

Thanks, Valentin. The Task app description on the WP7 website says that the app will soon have synchronization capabilities with gmail. Is this still in the pipeline?

Yes - this is in the product features we want to add. I don't want to stick to any specific date however, but this is definitely the plan.

I keep trying to sync my tasks (Windows 7 phone) but I continue to fail. I never used outlook before but I created an outlook account just so I can sync my tasks but it still doesn't work. Can you please give me step by step directions on the simplest way to sync my tasks. I really love and rely on this task manager and if anything happens to this phone or my tasks I'M SCREWED! Will I get a notification when you reply to this thread? If not, please email me at cee.samuel@gmail.com

Like I said, I am new to outlook and don't really understand it. I don't know how to find out what my username is and I definitely do not know what the server is (or what that even means)? I will just create a new outlook account if you could explain to me how I should configure/set it up OR what type of email address I should use with it (gmail, yahoo, hotmail...)?? I think the USERNAME and SERVER are my main problems.

Hello Sam,

You need to have an ExchangeServer 2007SP1 or newer. If you do not have this - you will not be able to sync your data.

You can ask your email administrator about the information we listed below.

Whet I tried to sync  Tasks app with Exchange 2010 I  get a  errort: We are having a problem connecting to your server.
Technical Error: Object reference is not set to an instance of an object.

I already sync my calendar, mail, contact and tasks via standard func in Windows Phone.
To achieve that, I had to install a certificate. Do I need another cert to connect with Tasks app?

Very grateful  for advice,

Hi David,

Thank you for contacting us. So far, our research has showed that Hotmail.com/Outlook.com don't have a concept of a task. Some of our users have suggested to treat the calendar entries as tasks, so this is something we'll be looking into for future versions of Tasks.
Soon, we'll be releasing Google Tasks support for our Windows 8 application so it will not be long until we have the feature on the phone as well. Stay tuned for updates!

Yes Hotmail/Outlook.com/WindowsLive does have a concept of a task. On the website calendar and on the phone, at least since Mango days. Hotmail is Exchange powered and these guys sync tasks with it http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/tasks/55fcf880-6b03-e011-9264-00237de2db9e

Hello Craig,

You are right - Hotmail.com does support to-do lists and this is in our plan for the future versions of the tasks app.

The previous confusion comes from the fact that there are now too many wrapper web sites around the MS live accounts (live.com, outlook.com, office365.com, Hotmail.com, etc).

So in short - yes we are working on enabling you to sync your tasks with your Microsoft Account.

Hello Sal,
Thank you for your feedback!
Synchronization with Hotmail.com/Outlook.com is not supported yet but it is something we’re looking into.
The latest version WP1301 supports synchronization with Exchange 2007+, Office365 and our own Telerik Cloud synchronization solution which allows for full task/category/project synchronization among devices (windows phone 8, windows 8 desktop, windows 8 tablet).

Dear Telerik support,

I really love your Tasks app! It works great with my Windows phone! However, I'm having 1 problem, it only seems to sync old tasks. I've connected it to our company's Exchange 2010 server and it shows some tasks per category, but I'm missing new tasks that were added from my Outlook client (even though they are synced, since they show up on Exchange OWA).

Could you please help me? I only have 8 days of trial left, and if this can be fixed on my phone, I am more than happy to purchase! :)

Kind regards,
Erwin

The reason for not being synced the created at the phone tasks is that OWA synchronization is not supported.

Hello Erwin,

Please follow the instructions below for setting Exchange synchronization account up:

·                     in the username field enter your username

·                     in the password field- your password

·                     in the email field- your email

·                     the value of the server field enter https://mailxyz.org/EWS/Exchange.asmx, where https://mailxyz.org is your server

·                     do not fill the domain field, its value is extracted automatically from the e-mail if nothing is entered into that field and check the "Server requires SSL" checkbox.

Thanks.

Hi Rob,
For now much more prior is to fix the reported issues, related to the newly launched Telerik Cloud synchronization, included into v.WP1301. Outlook/Hotmail sync will not be included into next version of Tasks- that is the only clear as timeline info for now. After releasing the next version, we will prioritize again the pending tasks.

We are asking to try to add your account outside Tasks at your phone in order to eliminate/ confirm if the reason is due to account/ phone security issues (many users of Tasks use the Exchange synchronization without any issues).
We need your exact server value to ensure that  for some reason it is not shorten or not accepted by the validation.

Hi Peer,

About a month ago, due to similar issues with changes introduced in various APIs used by the application, we decided to put down the application for the current moment until we are able to invest more resources in order to make it good for the latest and greatest technologies. Please accept my sincere apologies for the inconvenience. At the moment, I am not able to provide any specific time frame in which the app will be back live and working properly.
