Version 5.0.69August 3, 2021

  • Minor bug fix update.
Version 5.0.68August 2, 2021

  • The Outlook task form initial tab (for existing tasks) setting, when set to The Task tab if there are notes, otherwise the Taskline tab, was always displaying the Taskline tab.
  • On the Calendar Task Entry Subject dialog, the Enable times tokens check box was not working.
  • Some users were seeing "Error reading task information from Outlook" with the latest update of Office 365. This version fixes that issue.
Version 5.0.65June 15, 2021

  • Minor bug fix update.
Version 5.0.64June 7, 2021

  • Editing a Taskline task in Outlook will now immediately update the Subject and colors of that task's Calendar Task Entries, if necessary. There's no longer a need to rerun Taskline to do this.
Version 5.0.61May 6, 2021

  • We've added support for ordering tasks by a simple formula. Say for example you have a "Profit" field on a task. You can now tasks order by "Profit ÷ Total Work", to do the most profitable tasks first.
Version 5.0.53February 22, 2021

  • Sometimes reducing the duration of a Completed Calendar Task Entry would incorrectly change a task from being Completed to In Progress. Now fixed.
  • The token <Task%Complete> would sometimes report a value greater than 0 on a Not Started task or less than 100 on a Completed task. Now fixed.
Version 5.0.52January 13, 2021

  • Fixed a problem with some tasks with Finish on or before constraints being scheduled earlier than optimal.
Version 5.0.49December 28, 2020

  • Version 5.0.48 introduced a problem syncing task progress to the calendar. Apologies for that, now fixed.
Version 5.0.48December 23, 2020

  • We've improved the way task updates are saved after a reschedule. Consequently, the "Updating tasks…" phase of task scheduling should now run noticeably faster.
  • Outlook changed the way time zone information for recurring meetings was stored. This stopped Taskline from correctly processing recurring meetings that originated in a different time zone. Now fixed.
  • An issue where running a Taskline reschedule would sometimes change the Constraint Date on a task (setting it to Scheduled Start or Scheduled End) has now been fixed.
Version 5.0.46October 27, 2020

  • The new Due today, Due tomorrow etc task constraints were asking for a date on new tasks. Now fixed.
  • The Project drop down list on the Taskline task form in Outlook has been made wider.
Version 5.0.45October 20, 2020

  • Sometimes the Taskline entries in the context (right click) menu for a task entry in the calendar weren't displaying. Now fixed.
  • Typing task constraint abbreviations into the task table view wasn't working. Now fixed.
  • We have added 4 new task constraints that don't require you to set a date: Due today, Due tomorrow, Due last day of week and Due last day of month.
  • There is a new Import Projects From Clipboard feature.
  • Taskline now automatically checks for new versions and, if one is available, displays a download link on the Help/About tab of the Taskline Settings dialog:

Version 5.0.44September 24, 2020

  • This version fixes an error when creating All day events for milestone tasks. It also fixes an issue with updating the calendar when a recurring task is made Complete.
Version 5.0.42September 7, 2020

  • This version fixes an issue saving Taskline Settings on IMAP stores.
Version 5.0.40September 4, 2020

  • Import Tasks now allows default values for Priority (Low/Normal/High) and Priority (A1) to be specified.
Version 5.0.37August 10, 2020

  • The External constraint, Working hours and Show as combo boxes on the Taskline task form in Outlook had no blank line, so you couldn't remove these settings. This is now fixed.
Version 5.0.34July 9, 2020

  • There is a new option to change Show As on calendar task entries when a task is made Complete. This compliments the setting that allows you set Show As on Not Started calendar task entries.
  • You can now order tasks by Start date, as well as by Due date
Version 5.0.26June 16, 2020

  • The Taskline 4 options to Move completed tasks to a different Outlook folder and to Delete completed occurrences of recurring tasks have been reinstated in Taskline 5.
Version 5.0.15May 12, 2020

  • Recurring appointments are now read in more quickly.
  • The yearly and monthly "on the 1st/2nd/3rd/4th/Last weekday/weekend day of a month" types of recurring appointments are now supported by Taskline.
  • Support has been improved for storing Taskline settings when only an IMAP account is available.
Taskline Version 5April 16, 2020

This major new Taskline upgrade has many new features and stability improvements, including:

  • Taskline 5 has been extensively re-engineered and now runs substantially faster, typically twice as fast as Taskline 4.1 and earlier.
  • Taskline 5 works with Outlook folders to support a full task hierarchy, with summary tasks.
  • Taskline Settings are now stored in the same place as Outlook tasks. So now the same tasks and settings information can be accessed from any computer. With Taskline 4 and earlier, Taskline's settings were stored in the Windows Registry on the local computer.
  • There are now 2 pre-installed Outlook custom views – Taskline A1 and Taskline Nat Ord – optimized for viewing Taskline tasks.
  • Your appointments can now be in 2 Outlook Calendar folders. This is useful if, for example, you have different Work and Home calendars.
  • You can now control how each type of appointment (Busy, Tentative etc) influences the task reschedule for each set of Working Hours. So, for example, some types of tasks could be scheduled during Out of Office appointments.
  • There is a new Open Calendar Tasks right-click menu option for Taskline tasks.
  • The Summary of Task Schedule report has been completely rewritten:
    • It now shows a detailed report of all tasks with optional sorting, grouping and filtering.
    • The report can summarize your schedule by Folder, Project, Category or Working Hours.
    • The report optionally includes Completed work, not just future work as with Taskline 4.1 and earlier.
  • With Taskline v4.1, there were 2 Outlook Add-Ins. Now there is just one, called "Taskline Outlook Add-in". This should improve reliability.
  • Taskline Standard Edition now supports the same flexible working week definition as Taskline Professional Edition, so that for example you can work different hours on different days, although Standard Edition only supports a single Working Hours definition.
  • Outlook Task Import has been enhanced so that you can now import many different task settings, not just Subject.
  • Taskline now requires Outlook 2010 or later.
  • You can now license Taskline's cutting-edge rescheduling technology for use in your own application. Please contact us for more information.

Feature Differences Between Taskline 4 and Taskline 5

  • The Taskline 4 settings:
    • Move completed tasks to…
    • Delete completed occurrences of recurring tasks
    Have been removed from Taskline 5. This is because:
    • Taskline 5 now supports a full task hierarchy. Generally, in a hierarchy, it is better to leave items in their original folders. Moving completed tasks that were originally in different folders into the same folder would undermine the hierarchy.
    • The Task Schedule Report now reports information on completed tasks, such as Work Done and Work Remaining. It can't do this properly if completed tasks have been moved to a different folder.
  • The way Order by Due date works has been changed. With Taskline 4, not only were tasks ordered by Due date, but Taskline also tried to make sure that tasks were completed on or before the Due date. With Taskline 5, Order by Due date now works the same way as the other Order by fields. It is just used for task ordering. This makes things simpler and consistent. Task Constraints can still be used if you need a task to finish on or before a certain date.

Users who purchased or upgraded to Taskline 4.1 on or after April 1, 2019 are entitled to a free upgrade to Taskline 5 (the same edition as your original purchase).
