I've been using Zimbra Desktop on Linux for a short time now, and it seems that when a due date on a task is set... that there is currently no way for YZD to do a notification? Is this correct or am I missing something?
I was also hoping that task would be integrated into the calendar, so that due dates for tasks would be seen in shared calendars... Again, am I missing something? or is it Zimbra that is missing something?
This seems like basic functionality to me. I understand the hurdles of implementing such a system in Zimbra on Linux, but if we could even get something as simple as an email being sent when the task is due... Even that would be helpful, as it is if you are not looking at it when it's due - you miss it. Kind of defeats the whole purpose and concept of a "reminder".
So, what is the status on these features? I fear I'm beating a dead horse here; I can't imagine that this has not been discussed... ad inifintum, ad nauseum. I was really excited when I found Zimbra, I thought it was finally going to be our solution to that Exchange crap we've been living on... and this little tidbit, is such a deal breaker. I almost have to go back to the drawing board and figure this all out from scratch - without this basic functionality Zimbra becomes nothing more than a glorified IMAP connection.
Any news or links would be helpful? Work arounds too, those also would be very helpful. I've had to go back to Kontact for calendar and tasks, which has negated the whole purpose of implementing ZCS in the first place.
