Full-featured task manager

Keep track of everything you have to do with this detailed program.

MSD Tasks is a multifeatured program that allows users to keep track of a wide variety of things they need to do. Although the program could be better organized, we like the number of options and customizations it offers.

The program's interface is somewhat cluttered, with lots of buttons and drop-down menus. A few minutes of exploration allows users to start to make sense of the layout. While the bulk of the interface contains a calendar with scheduled tasks in it, much of the rest is composed of options for customizing how tasks are displayed in the calendar. We appreciated that the program's buttons, which weren't entirely familiar, had tooltip descriptions. The program's features are many, and allow users to organize and view tasks by client, project, event type, and status. Each task contains a series of tabs for users to fill in detailed information, and the program even allows users to input spreadsheets, images, and embedded documents. This is not a planner for people with the occasional hair cut or dental appointment; this program is made for professionals who have a lot of projects to manage and things to keep track of. Once we got used to the interface, we found that MSD Tasks is a powerful tool for tracking just about everything.

MSD Tasks has no time limit on its trial period, but it restricts the number of tasks users can create using the trial version. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users seeking a detailed way to manage their tasks.
