I am trying to determine if Outlook will work for me with GTD. I currently use plain Vanilla desktop and palm, but my firm is moving to Outlook and I'm trying to figure out if it is worthwhile it to switch. My boss would like to be able to view my task list, so he can see what clients I am working on. Additionally, the firm is leery of letting me use the add-in, but I may be able to swing it. (One question for Add-in users below).
For those of you who do NOT use the add-in, how to you switch a task from, say, @WaitingFor to @Calls? (Each of those are categories, I'm assuming.) In my brief time playing with Outlook 2000 in the training room yesterday, it looked like you would want to create a view that grouped your tasks by category. Then, to switch context, you can drag a task to the new category. Problem is, that just duplicates the task in the new category. How to you get it to just MOVE to the new category?
For those of you who DO use the add-in, are any of you on networks using Outlook 2000? Do you just load it on your personal computer? If you are "sharing" tasks in a department, so other people can see your task lists, does one person having the add-in interfere with the other people's (non-gtders) viewing pleasure?
Thanks in advance for your help!
