I'm not sure this is an "on topic" topic, but I've searched everywhere and been unable to come up with an answer. It does affect my use of the tools that I use to implement GtD. It is a "mechanics" question rather than a "process" question.
I've recently started linking the NAs I create in Shadow to my Palm To Do database. I then synch with Outlook so I can print my task file for review.
My problem is that when I delete a to do since it is done (not check off - I don't need to keep the records of what has been done) in either the todo (Palm) or Tasks (Outlook), then synch, it is essentially recreated - the synch process keeps the task rather than deleting it. I assume this is done as a fail-safe to avoid mistaken deletions. I need to synchronize the records, rather than have one override the other, since I do make changes on both ends. I would like to be able to delete the todo or task, then have that same deletion take place on the "other side" during the synch.
Any good solution other than to synch, delete to dos on one side, then synch again with that side overriding as a one time synch option? If it makes a difference, I use PocketMirror Pro and a Sony Clie TJ37.
