To get Outlook tasks to sync to more than one computer just follow these steps on all the computers you want to sync:
That should have taken you about 15 seconds. Let’s move on to step 2.
Step 2. Close Outlook, download Chromatic Dragon’s Toodledo Sync Application and install it.
Almost done! The sync application will want your Toodledo ID number. Leave it open on the tab that wants the ID number.
Step 3. Log into Toodledo and from the menu on the left select Account Settings. On that page you will see your Unique ID, simply copy and paste it into the sync program that you left open.
On the Synchronization tab you can change your Automatic Synchronization to whatever works for you. I don’t add tasks very often so once every 60 minutes is fine for me. To close the Options window select File -> Close. You will see a green checkmark icon in your tool tray. Right click it and hit Manual Sync.
Outlook is now synchronized to ToodleDo. For every computer you do this to, they will all fall into lockstep with one another. Change a task on your work computer? It will sync to ToodleDo, which will sync to your Home computer.
And, as addressed in How To Sync Outlook Tasks With Your iPhone, For Free – you can see the whole shebang on your iPhone!
