Completed Tasks not syncing on 1 computer

Postby Jayne » Tue Oct 11, 2016 1:32 pm

I have VueMinder on two computers at home. Everything works fine with adding tasks, contacts, etc. (both computers can see each other's entries).

However, when Computer 1 marks a task complete it does not register on Computer 2 (it stays as undone). When Computer 2 marks a task as done it does update on Computer 1 and is checked off.

Both computers have the "share event completion status" boxes checked.

Any suggestions? It is making for quite an ugly "to do" list on Computer 2.

Thanks.

Hi Jayne, are you using the latest version (2016.10) of VueMinder on both computers? You can check by using the "Help -> Check for Updates" menu command. Also, are both computers configured to use the same account in the Sharing Options?

Dan:

Yes, both computers have the latest updates.

When you ask about being configured to the same account, do you mean the "host?" If so, yes, both are set for the same host. If not, I'm not sure what you mean.

Thanks again.

I was referring to the username, thinking that maybe you had configured separate accounts for the two computers and that one of the accounts doesn't have write access for editing the tasks. If that were the case, you could mark a task as complete but the change wouldn't sync back to the other computer.

So... if you are using different accounts for some reason, then make sure the account that doesn't "own" the shared task calendar has "Contributor" access. You can modify the permissions via the "Sync" tab on the Task Calendar Properties window.
