SenseTasks is an application to manage your Outlook Tasks

This application intends to replace the original Windows Mobile task application, utilizing the SenseSDK to create a HTC Sense Look and Feel.

I created this application because the Windows Mobile task application is not very finger-friendly to use. Furthermore, the WM application didn't allow me to create new tasks on my HTC HD Mini with Windows Mobile 6.5.3. After experimenting with eboelzner's SenseSDK, I decided to create this application.

Many thanks to eboelzner for creating the fantastic SenseSDK!

CHT 1.8.5 Addon created by Co0kieMonster
to allow for an individual task to be directly opened for editing (instead of the tasks list) in the program you have chosen.
Download here (See original post in CHT topic)
For problems with this addon, please consult the CHT topic.

ReadMe
Code:
==============================
SenseTasks
==============================


------------------------------
Categories
------------------------------

The list of categories is built by reading existing categories from all contacts, appointments and tasks. If a specific category is not parsed by SenseTasks, you can do the following:

1)	Create a temporary task in Outlook and assign ALL categories to it
	OR
	Insert them manually into the "Categories" section of the settings.xml of SenseTasks
2)	Launch SenseTasks and go to Settings -> Reload Categories.


------------------------------
Command Line Parameters
------------------------------

SenseTasks.exe			Command Line Parameters only executed on startup, 
				not when SenseTasks is already running
SenseTasksLauncher.exe		Preferred .exe to start SenseTasks with command line parameters 
				and also control a running instance

-addtask			Opens SenseTasks in "Add Task" Window
-oid [OID]			Opens the task with the specified OID
-list				Opens SenseTasks in List View
-agenda				Opens SenseTasks in Agenda View
-nomainwindow			In combination with -addtask and -oid doesn't show the SenseTasks main screen
Known Issues
  • OutOfMemoryException when there are too many tasks (I mean a lot of tasks). Nothing to do here except remove some tasks by, for example, filtering them.

Change Log
Code:

Here's a little addon for CHT v1.8.5 that allows for an individual task to be directly opened for editing (instead of the tasks list) in the program you have chosen.

A little bit of manual reg editing is required though, read the instructions below.

Instructions:
1) Install the cab

2) [not required for SenseTasks]

3) If you're using SenseTasks or pTasks, they will be recognized by CHT, so the rest will be done automatically and you can finish up: restart sense.

4) [not required for SenseTasks]

5) Now restart sense.

Thank you all!

jolas, no, for now I haven't included any parameters. But it's definitely a good idea. I will add that in the future.

looks good!
is there a chance to get a "group by..."-feature in a future release?
i am looking for task application atm, but it will be almost useless to me, if i cannot group by category...dmn, just scrolled up and the category is not editable.

hi!!

great app, much better than ptasks, wich btw went on marketplace few days ago, so this is No. 1 tasks app now.

i wold like to suggest one thing.

Make deletion of tasks easier. If i am not mistaken, now you have to select tasks, click options, select delete, and then confirm.

this is way too much steps if you have 10+ tasks, and want to delete them all at once.

thank you

I agree, this app looks absolutely awesome however beeing able to sort by category is a must have for me. There are good commercial task apps out there but they generally replace your entire PIM. I've been looking for a handy task app like this for a while. Please consider adding the sort by category function.
