How do I export *all* of my tasks to a single document?

Hello everyone–

I’m looking to export all of my tasks in one plain text or HTML document.

I know that I can do this based on perspective (so, if I export from the Forcasts tab, it will export all of what is on there, or if I pick one of my contexts, it will export all of those).

However, I want to basically be able to export all of my tasks daily, so that I can store them on Dropbox and have access to them when away from my Mac (I don’t have any iOS devices).

I also can’t create a custom Perspective since I don’t have the Pro version.

Any idea how to do this?



It seems a bit of automation is required. You might want to take a look at…



Nice! I’ll check this stuff out.

I wonder if it will work without Pro…

Whoops… No, probably not. AppleScript support requires Pro, I believe.

Yeah. Since I’m in a trial version right now, I discovered I can just make an “all tasks” perspective. Once the trial runs out I probably won’t be able to afford Pro, so I’ll be looking for a workaround until I can upgrade.

If you go to the projects tab, and set the view to All, that should give you all of your tasks. Then you can export from there.

Well, the thing about that is that I’d need to export each individual project separately. I’m not looking to include completed and dropped items; I’m looking to have all of my tasks on the same long list.

I think that may only be possible with Pro, and a perspective that includes all tasks. I’m using a Pro trial right now, so here’s what I mean:
