I've used this new release for a full workday today (this was released late last night), and it's very nice. The new handling of projects is a great improvement that makes the Add-In very easy to use for items that don't necessarily come to your GTD Inbox via email.
Do I Need to install the non-Vista Ver. 1st then the Vista ver. on a Vista Machine?
I am running Vista and Office 2007 (including Outlook 2007) on a new computer. I do not yet have the Outlook Add-in. Do I install the non-vista version prior to installing the Vista version upgrade? Can I install the non-vista version on a vista machine? Thanks!
I've just installed the new version on a machine running Vista and Office
2000. Yes, you need to install the current version and then the up-date. Only been using it for a few days - but it looks good!
I just want to remind folks that the support address for Netcentrics is
firstname.lastname@example.org - if you need a new link or have a second computer email support and they can assist you. Netcentrics Corporation is the developer of the Outlook add-in. Feel free to contact them directly anytime with questions!
The Outlook Add-In, while containing many features I like, crashes at least twice per week for me. It requires having to disable, then re enable the add-in. It's too useful to not do it, but it's a tad frustrating. I'm also not too happy that when I add tasks in my blackberry, they don't tie in with the add-in at all. It does not categorize them per the add-in and I have to go in and do this when I get back to my desktop. That's blackberry's fault, not the add-in, but frustrating nonetheless. Overall, I'm happy with the add-in's features.
Does anyone know how to handle recurringprojects using the Outlook Add-in? I have a project that contains 15 actions/tasks and I would like to find a way to avoid having to re-enter all the tasks every tiem this project needs to be completed.
I love the concept of Project Central, but wish it could do the following:
- Under the email tab, to have the ability to "preview". If I'm searching for a particular item in a list of 25 emails, it's cumbersome to open and close each one individually.
- Have the ability to sort the tabs sequence, or set which tab is displayed when opening a project. For me, I would like to open in the "notes" view. "Appointments" are way down in my useage frequency.
It seems like it is always a long, long time between feature additions. I hope it won't be 2011 - 2012 before we might see some further enhancements!
