Task Coach 1.1.0 (+ Portable) | 19.24 Mb
Task Coach is a simple todo manager to manage personal tasks and todo lists. It grew out of Frank's frustration that well-known task managers, such as those provided with Outlook or Lotus Notes, do not provide facilities for composite tasks. Often, tasks and other things todo consist of several activities. Task Coach is designed to deal with composite tasks. Task Coach is developed by Frank Niessink and Jerome Laheurte, with help of different people providing translations. Many people use it on a daily basis, but there are still a lot of features missing.
Task Coach currently has the following features:
- Creating, editing, and deleting tasks and subtasks.
- Tasks have a subject, description, priority, start date, due date, a completion date and an optional reminder. Tasks can recur on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
- Tasks can be viewed as a list or as a tree.
- Tasks can be sorted by all task attributes, e.g. subject, budget, budget left, due date, etc.
- Several filters to e.g. hide completed tasks or view only tasks that are due today.
- Tasks can be created by dragging an e-mail message from Outlook or Thunderbird onto a task viewer.
- Attachments can be added to task by dragging and dropping files, e-mail messages from Outlook or Thunderbird, or URL's onto a task.
- Task status depends on its subtask and vice versa. E.g. if you mark the last uncompleted subtask as completed, the parent task is automatically marked as completed too.
- Tasks and notes can be assigned to user-defined categories.
- Settings are persistent and saved automatically. The last opened file is loaded automatically when starting Task Coach.
- Tracking time spent on tasks. Tasks can have a budget. Time spent can be viewed by individual effort period, by day, by week, and by month.
- The Task Coach file format (.tsk) is XML.
- Tasks, notes, effort, and categories can be exported to HTML and CSV (Comma separated format). Effort can be exported to iCalendar/ICS format as well.
- Tasks, effort, notes, and categories can be printed. When printing, Task Coach prints the information that is visible in the current view, including any filters and sort order.
What's New in This Release:
- Icons in edit dialogs would be lined up vertically on some versions of Windows XP. Fixed by using a notebook widget instead of the listbook widget. (2927384)
- The new edit dialogs better support tabbing through the dialogs. (2687959)
- On Mac OS X, the tabs in the editor and preferences dialogs were too small.
- Searching descriptions wasn't working in the effort viewer. (3031411)
- The start, due and completion dates of tasks now also include a time. When reading old task files, Task Coach adds a default time to tasks: start dates get a time of "00:00", due dates and completion dates get a time of "23:59". (http://uservoice.com/a/nd3mH)
- Mass editing of items. When editing multiple items (tasks, notes, etc.), the edit dialog allows for selectively changing attributes of all edited items. (http://uservoice.com/a/ahxq8)
- Less intrusive notifications (reminders).
- The calendar orientation can be changed.
- Add an option to the calendar viewer to show all tasks but those which have no start nor due date (3008517)
- The headers in the calendar view are now always visible. (http://uservoice.com/a/irtQs)
- The calendar view can show an arbitrary number of periods (except months). (http://uservoice.com/a/5F5Ka)
- The task file format was changed to support start, due and completion date and time. The task file format version number is now 30.
