Is it possible to sync Tasks created on TB Lightning on one Windows 10 computer to Lightning Tasks on another Windows 10 computer? I am not looking for exporting and importing a file, but 2-way syncing. I also have an iPhone and, ideally, would like to sync the same Tasks to the iPhone Reminders app as well.

I already have my Lightning Calendar syncing (using CalDav) with my iCloud calendar, which also syncs the iCloud calendar with my iPhone's iOS Calendar app, with my iPhone's Outlook app and with the desktop Outlook software on my Windows computers. I have managed to get Task syncing going between Outlook (Windows desktop app) and iCloud.com Tasks. But not yet with Lightning Tasks.

I'm just wondering if Lightning's Tasks can sync 2-ways with any or all of these devices. Without a way to sync among devices, I think the Lightning Tasks function has limited usefulness.

Thanks.

Using TBsync and Provider for CalDav and CardDav addons to sync with iCloud.

iCloud Tasks and Reminders can also be subscribed to manually without addons once iCloud user and calendar ID's are obtained. Needed to scour the web for how to do that for Reminders. Could only get info for Tasks after installing above addons.

The developer of the "TBsync" and "Provider for CalDav and CardDav" addons has worked very hard to add iCloud syncing functionality. He has asked me to mention that the iCloud syncing functions are, as of now, available only on the beta versions of those addons. He expects to have stable release versions available within a couple of weeks or so.

Here is the link to get the beta package:

Here is a link to the how-to-get-started guide, which also includes a reference to the beta release and how to install that:
