Syncronization with Outlook tasks for Corporate use.
Useful feature so far. I would give money for this. It is 2016 and I can't find a proper gtd app with my outlook synchronisation.
Would be awesome!
I would give all my votes for this.
since the benefits of gtd on android dont match the hassle the sync with outlook/exchange brings with it, i sadly stopped using dgt and only use native outlook tasks. too bad nobody works ona solutionfor activesync.

I was a happy dgt gtd user since I am using android, bit I got tired to symc my task through a 3rd party and would like to use exchange as a core. Without the exchamge feature, I will leave this app (sadly because I can't find an otherone which has the same comfortable functions as this).
get gsyncit and live happily ever after.

It's totally useful & easily for implementing.
-If we can sync with outlook tasks (it's better to sync w/ remote exchange server via ActiveSync or Web Service, instead (or as add) of a local sync), we will get a HUGE market from commercial users! Outlook is the world standard in old times; now in android, we can get a native sync in Calendar, Contact & Mail, but not Tasks, a crucial component for senior users! There has just 4 expensive apps (yes, just 4 as so far, Touchdown/20$, Moxier/20$, Roadsync/10$ & Remosync/20$) in the market could do an ActiveSync w/ Tasks! And their functions & UI are pretty poor (compared w/ DGT GTD :)). Why we need a remote Tasks sync w/ outlook exchange server? Because in so many Companies all over the world we still use outlook to arrange & distribute & share our works (I know it’s 2011, but truth is truth, standard can’t be changed easily), so we have to use it; we also like do everything in same place & same time, so if we can manage all our info in a outlook server & sync w/ it in all our terminals, life would be more beautiful ;).
-For the format of record, so easy, we sync those bi-exist (both exist in Outlook Tasks & DGT GTD)field w/ their original format(like title, status, due date & time, priority, reminder, completed mark). For those fields which just exist in one app, we use the way of XML, a head like <….> to note its’ name, then follow the content (maybe we also need an end like </….> to close the entry), fin put all these customer entries directly into Note field (exist in all note, todo or list app). Don’t worry, we understand what it is :).
-For protocol of communication, it’s a little hard. There are 2 ways to communicate w/ an exchange server. 1> exchange web service, support a full sync of all entries in outlook, but more complex. 2> ActiveSync (used by Windows Live sync & Winmo-PC sync), support main entries sync, but more simple and could cooperate w/ many platforms, more suitable for mobile.
