Trac, dotProject & Google code hosting - Outlook synchronization!
Other projects: Sql Express Profiler

This project is about tasks management. There are two types of system, which are used often by developers - collective and personal:
  • Trac is an enhanced wiki and issue tracking system for software development projects. Trac uses a minimalistic approach to web-based software project management.
  • Microsoft Outlook 2007 is powerful tool, that, in addition to mail management, provides ability to organize your time with Tasks and Calendar features.
There are many teams use Trac to track tickets within project and many developers which use Outlook for time management. They would like to have Trac tickets as personal Outlook tasks. Now it is possible with AnjLab SyncIT. It is small program that is working in background and visible at Windows tray. It requests periodically Trac URLs, defined as tasks sources at preferences and creates \ updates tasks at Outlook database. The following information is used for synchronization:
  • Title. Trac project (source name) is included as prefix to title in Outlook.
  • Priority
  • Ticket body
  • Some additional attributes like Milestone, Version, Component are saved as part of body
Imported task will be assigned to category defined for task source. In case, when ticket is closed\reassigned at Trac, related Outlook task will also be closed. Now SyncIT support Trac, dotProject & Google code hosting. 1S will be soon.

This is open source project, it is absolutely free and can be used as is.

We have some ideas how to improve this tool. For instance,
  • back synchronization, changing Trac tickets when Outlook task is modified,
  • ability to close tickets via Outlook
  • support for Trac comments, ability to add comments via Outlook
The software is implemented on .Net 3.5 framework.
