I've been experimenting with folders and am now trying Borisoff's suggestion. Prior to this I was using categories as only Outlook has folders, and from my understanding are incapable of syncing with Blackberry. For your question, one of my aims would be to use something like this:Originally Posted by Brent
Computer repair (Project)
@ToBuy (Which is action category)
-Research hardware and prices
-Ask Metafiler for advice
-Pick up cables
Right now, without the first project of computer repair, everything gets mixed together and becomes hard to manage the project in one place. If I could go to Computer Repair and have links to individual tasks that compose the project my problem would be solved.
I've set up my Outlook as taught in Borisoff's tutorial and it is pretty close to how I want everything. The one problem is that I do not know of a way that the Blackberry could recognise the new contact/project workaround folder. It would be ideal to be able to add a category of "Projects" for the Project metatask so that I could filter the "Projects" category on the Blackberry and have the tasks under their applicable category such as "@ToBuy". If this were able to be done I would have a list of projects on the Blackberry as well as Outlook. If this is impossible I perceive that I will be forced to used Outlook as the "Brains" and during each weekly review make sure that all projects are broken into their tasks preparing to not see the project list from my Blackberry
I apologise for this rant, I hope it is somewhat understandable.
