Problems with "Projects" in GTD Outlook Add-In
I just sent the following question to the Netcentrics supports folks, but thought I'd post it here, too, to see if any of you has any suggestions:
I'm having a problem with using the Add-In with Projects, at least as described in the manual. In the manual, there is a section headed "Move Project to Someday" (I have printed out a copy, and it appears on page 38 of my copy). I looked at the online Help file, created a Project as described there by creating a new task, assigning it the Action "Projects," then saved and closed it. I then created a new task, assigned it to the newly created Project, and gave it an Action (e.g., @Anywhere). The Project and the new Action assigned to it show up in my Projects list, whether listed by Active Tasks by Project or By Category.
My problem -- and maybe I'm misunderstanding the manual -- is that, as I understand it from the manual, the "master project task" (i.e., the one I created and assigned the Action "Projects," without assigning that master task to a Project itself) should show up in bold font as the first task under that Project's heading. My doesn't. The Project heading is there -- it says "Projects: New Project" (where I assigned "New Project" as the name of the Project when I created it) -- but only the task I created and assigned to that Project appears under it. That is, there is no task entry that is in bold and reads "New Project."
Am I doing something wrong? Am I misunderstanding something? If the master project task doesn't show up as a task under the Project heading, how can I change it to Someday?
