Request for new iCal support: UID

Post by johnson29630 »

I'm trying to syncronize data from a project schedule database using the iCal import into EsentialPIM. If the UID was supported, I could synchronize EPIM with by database:
> If the UID matches a record already in EPIM, update it with any changes from the iCal record.
> If the UID does not match an existing EPIM record, import it as a new record.
> A UID should also be included in the iCal export from EsentialPIM

Where is this feature?

Post by salcedok »

I have version 1.95 Pro and this feature is not there. I had a similar need and found a workaround by exporting project to EXCEL and writing a macro to convert the EXCEL to an ICS file but I have nothing that checks for duplicate To Do items. Is there a feature to ask for confirmation prior to importing a duplicate item?
