Recurring Tasks separate and duplicate

My recurring tasks separate and duplicate after syncing with Outlook.  It is time consuming to clear each of these daily and never really allows me to have a true task list. 

 

Here is a snapshot of the issue.

 

I appreciate any advice!ACT Issue.JPG

Re: Recurring Tasks separate and duplicate

The is caused because Outlook does recurring activities different from the way ACT! does. Act had a single activity which includes the recurring information, Outlook creates a separate linked activity for each recurrence. Basically recurring activities will work one way, from ACT! to Outlook but not from Outlook to ACT!.

Re: Recurring Tasks separate and duplicate

Is there a way to remove the task syncronization with Outlook?  It serves no purpose for me as I don't use the tasks in Outlook.


Thank you for the reply.

I don't think so because the activities in ACT! are the driver of the calendar so if you're using the calendar in Outlook, the activities would have to be transferred.
