Task Coach Comments

Not very sexy, but really good app design

Positive Comment by AlexGendival
about Task Coach Feb 2012

I've only used it for two days, so I wait a bit before writing a real review.

However, as said in the subject, I can already advice you to give it a try, even if it doesn't look very sexy at first : after a few minutes, you'll quickly find out that the application design is very sound, and that you can easily shape it to your own methodology.

It has simple yet powerful features :
- hierarchical tasks
- hierarchical categories (+ possibility of defining sets of "exclusive" categories : very handy for GTD-like "contexts")
- colorized tasks according to categories and status
- malleable UI based on a set of "views"
- ... and of course several other commonly-found features (several dates, recurrence, etc...)

Vote:"Allow to cut a note & paste it in a different task"

about Task Coach Jun 2011

Please write a agreeing comment for "Allow to cut a note and paste it in a different task"

Until version 1.2.14 is is only allowed to cut and paste a note only in one and the same task.
Please allow to cut a complete note from the notes window of one task and paste this note to the notes window of a different task in one of the next Task Coach versions, maybe already in version 1.2.15 ?
Here in the bugs-tracker of SourceForge.net http://is.gd/ZAc1dD you can contribute to fix this bug by writing a comment after registration and logging in.

Simple, straightforward, functional and surprisingly robust

Positive Comment by Nishidake
about Task Coach Jun 2011

Simple, straightforward, functional and surprisingly robust. Customizable interface, effort tracking, really everything you could need. I've tried pen and paper, RememberTheMilk and TiddlyWikis. Task Coach is the only one I have stuck with. Love it.
