Convert Event to Task and vice-versa?

Post by appyface » Mon Sep 20, 2010 6:47 pm

I'm an idiot :oops: I just spent a significant bit of time setting up a number recurring events, and now I realize I really should have set them up as tasks. Is there any way to convert one to the other? I realize not all fields will translate, but many of them will and that would save some time. I looked here and in the Help but didn't find this. If this is possible please let me know?

Kind regards,

There's no command shortcut to convert between tasks and events, although this is on my list of planned improvements. In the meantime, the easiest way to convert a large number of events to tasks would probably be to export the events to an Excel spreadsheet using the "File -> Export Events -> To Excel" command. Next, import the events as tasks using the "Import Tasks" command.

I hope that helps!

@Dan Yes I did export/import. But the real work was in all the stuff that can't be imported (reminder, occurences, other settings) :-/ Thanks for letting me know it is already on the wishlist :-)
