Hi

HOW CAN I DRAG A TASK FROM THE TASK SUMMARY LIST AT THE LHS OF THE CALENDAR PANE, INTO THE CALENDAR / AGENDA VIEW, TO CREATE A NEW EVENT?

Whenever i try this in Kontact KOrganiser i do not get an actual error msg, but instead simply nothing at all happens once the mouse button is released at the desired place on the Calendar / Agenda where i want my new Task-derived Event to be created. It's driving me crazy with frustration. Is there a mysterious setting somewhere i need to first enable? Is this a Bug?

i've found this information: https://userbase.kde.org/KOrganizer ...
"Todo integration with agenda view. Todos are shown in the week and day views. Todos can be converted to events by dragging from the todo list and dropping on the agenda view."

That's exactly the functionality that i need. Please would someone kindly explain to me how i can get this to work?

Thanks.

Steffie.

Hmmm

No community support here, no response from majority of developers when separately emailed, passive-aggressive unhelpful response from one developer when separately emailed, lots of niggling functionality problems with Kontact broadly & KOrganizer specifically. It's a pity, coz it's a nice product in many ways, but after living with it for a couple of months & getting more & more disappointed by its technical shortcomings & zero support. i took an alternative path.

Discovered & installed PlayOnLinux, then using it i installed my Outlook 2010. It does not run perfectly, but it does run well, & so now i have all the desired PIM functionality back, still within Linux. I'm pleased with the outcome, but a little sad that after migrating from MS Win7 to Linux Mint earlier this year & mostly loving it, i've had to retain this one vestige of MS. I sincerely hope that one day Kontact will get there. I wish the developers & community all the best wishes.

Steffie.
