    Default [SOLVED] Zimbra Calendar Integration with Remember The Milk

    RTM integrates nicely with Google Calendar (Remember The Milk - Services / Remember The Milk for Google Calendar). Has anyone gotten something similar working with Zimbra Calendar?

    RTM will serve todo lists as ICS files and I've tried subscribing to them from within the web interface but I see nothing on my calendar. It allows subscription to both "iCalendar" and "iCalendar (events)". (What is the difference?). Regardless, neither RSS feeds seem to contain my data, even after I've published the lists to be viewable to the public. I've been looking around RTM's Help site (Remember The Milk - Help / FAQ / iCalendar Service). I think I might have missed something obvious.

    I'm posting on RTM too (Remember The Milk - Forums / Help / Zimbra Calendar Integration with Remember The Milk), as it seems to be more of a question for them, but Zimbra forums have been really helpful and I thought there might be someone on them who uses RTM. Thanks.

    I got it working. I was subscribing to "iCalendar" but when I subscribed to "iCalendar (events)" I was able to view them in my Zimbra calendar.

    The distinction is that:
    "iCalendar": produces .ics files with vtodo items.
    "iCalendar (events)": produces .ics files with vevent items

    So, calendar display software needs the later. I.e. it won't show up in your calendar unless you choose "iCalendar (events)". Also, you need to rule out permissions issues and publish or share them with a contact. Another minor point is the RTM produces a "webcal://" protocol to the URL. Change that to "http://" when subscribing to the external calendar in Zimbra.

    Some more questions about RememberTheMilk integration.

    - Is there a way to make the RTM tasks visible in the Tasks-section of Zimbra? Calendar view does not really cut it if you have loads of tasks without due date.

    - Is there a way to add tasks to the RTM service? At this point the RTM integration seems to be read-only.

    - If writing to RTM is not supported, is there a command line incantation that I can use to create tasks to ZCS (Win/Unix)? I know there is a REST API but from the wiki docs this was not quite clear.

    My point is that I need an online task service that I can quickly access from various applications (for example Gnome Do, Windows Launchy). Firing up Firefox is not always possible nor is the Zimbra Deskop always installed.

    LadyBug,

    1. The Tasks-section of Zimbra does not support all of the features of RTM (which is why I went back to RTM, my favorite being RTM has an iPhone app). I.e. a RTM to do object has many more attributes than a Zimbra to do object so I'm not sure what a RTM todo list would look like on a Zimbra to do list. Zimbra would have to improve their to do list to support those features. Some transation might be possible, but Zimbra would have to start by allowing the todo list to subscribe to vtodo items. I really like calendar integration with a todo list and I think Zimbra should get that working with its own todo list.

    2. Yes, Zimbra can only read it. You'd have to add it with RTM's interface.

    3. I have nothing to add. I agree that you could code something in REST.

    I agree that a better task manager is a good idea. Zimbra is good at mail, calendar and contacts but their todo list could be better. RTM is doing good work in this area and have lots of integrations but most of them are browser centric.
