I have read the org-mode info pages, and the FAQ online, and they've
been a great source of help. I'm happily using org-mode on a Mac OS X
system, and exporting to an iCalendar file and syncing with iCal. It
works pretty well. I then use iSync to export my calendar to my
mobile phone, so I can take my TODO list out for the day without
burning trees (and ink cartridges).
There are two features that would really be nice. The high priority
one is some way of including some amount of the body of a TODO
headline into the DESCRIPTION field.
This will be done by default in 5.10, limited to 100 character. The
can be configured with `org-icalendar-include-body'.
The second feature request is a way to limit my exporting to a single
tag or two (e.g. @PHONE and @ERRANDS). I think all I need to do is
learn Lisp and write an org-agenda-skip-function to match a tag. I'm
just not sure how to apply that just in the case of exporting to my
phone. I don't really care what shows up in iCal, because if I can
read that, I can read my org-mode file.
This is currently not possible, export always pushes everything out.
One work-around might be to first make a sparse tree with the stuff you
want, and then export only the visible part with
