Task management software

Monitor all tasks and progress with this simple, effective freeware.

ToDoList provides a set of easy-to-use tools for monitoring several tasks and due dates. The program's efficient layout is designed to keep users informed of progress and upcoming deadlines on everything from simple tasks to major projects.

The program is a little intimidating to start off with, since it's really not much more than a blank screen with a lot of strange-looking command icons. Fortunately, the Help file's tutorial quickly gets you on track. Populating the list took only a few minutes. You can make notes, set due dates, mark your progress, and color-code everything. Completed lists look a bit like a file tree, with each line of tasks interconnected and stacked on top of one another. One of the nicest aspects was the capability to make subtasks stemming from larger tasks. ToDoList doesn't offer many special features, though the simple capability to add a symbol to each task helps differentiate tasks more clearly than color-coding them. Such a feature could be especially useful with massive lists.

This simple program performs its job quickly, easily, and intuitively. We couldn't have asked for more from a planning tool. We can see ToDoList being used in business planning meetings, projected on an office wall while tasks are assigned and completion status is updated for important projects. ToDoList is freeware. It comes as a compressed file. We highly recommend this program, with its simple operation and helpful design.
