Editors' Review

Aside from minor shortcomings, C-Organizer Pro is an attractive and effective planner. The modern, three-pane interface is easy to use, offering up a calendar and section shortcuts stacked on the left, and your task list, address book, alarm, notes, or events in the right pane. We would have liked to see national holidays displayed in the calendar, as well as rollover previews of scheduled events when you point to a date.

One nice touch, however, is the ability to set the program to launch at start-up, an uncommon but handy option in a PIM. Also essential these days, the program now can sync with Pocket PC or Palm devices. For those seeking a streamlined project-management tool, C-Organizer Pro is likely to be helpful.

"Truly satisfied"

August 03, 2009  |  By HarryPumpkin

 |  Version: C-Organizer Pro 3.7

Pros

- Intuitive and easy interface
- Very versatile
- Aesthetically appealing
- Reliable
- Quick and helpful helpful customer service

Cons

None, and if you find any, they'll be quick to help you.

Summary

I needed something good to get my life in order, so I tried out about a dozen organizer programs and none of them satisfied me. I finally came across C-Organizer version 4.0 (beta version available on their website) and I loved it. It's everything I envisioned. It contains calendar views for 1 day, 5 days, 7 days, 31 days, and the whole year. If I set up an appointment and decide I need to reschedule it, I can just drag and drop it to the new time. If I need to extend the end time, I just click on the bottom and extend it down, just like changing the size of a window. In writing a note, a task, or a description of an appointment, if I want to include a table, a graphic, or a file attachment, I can. I can set up an alarm and have it play a sound file, open a program, or shut off the computer. I keep discovering neat little things to do with it.

Don't worry about the guy who complained the it was a ripoff. I think they do the licensing through a third party, so if he had a problem, it was probably with the third party. I registered and got my license within a few hours.

I did find one bug that was particularly annoying (not surprising in a beta version). I contacted customer service with a description and screen shots. Later that day, they emailed me instructions and told me to send some .ini files. I did and the next day, they said they fixed the problems, sent me back some new .ini files, and told me to replace the old ones. I did so and sure enough, the bug was fixed. They also take customer suggestions for features that you may like changed or new features, so if you suggest something, there's a good chance you'll see it in the next release.

"Be careful when registering!!"

November 22, 2008  |  By royholcomb

 |  Version: C-Organizer Pro 3.7

Pros

This program is a fairly plain program but has what I need and one of my needs was a database that I could locate where I wanted it, in my case on a hard drive separate from my OS.

Cons

Shady registration methods at best. Maybe a rip off, I don't know yet.

Summary

The snag I ran into is I decided to purchase the registration and also a back up copy of the program on CD. After paying for the registration they sent an email acknowledging receipt of pmt but no registration key. I thought maybe the key would come with the disk but I received the disk today and no key. I have sent an email to their support address and will update later on whether this is resolved or not. I would definitely be careful of sending any money to them at this time. The back up disk is just burned from a regular cd burner with a paper label printed in faded black and white, stuck kind of poorly to the surface, nothing professional looking about it at all. I definitely wouldn't recommend purchasing the cd in any case unless you have no way of burning your own.

After a few emails back and forth it was determined that my spam filter was blocking just the registration email from them but not the support email.
The registration code worked and the program is working fine although through all this I lost my entire database by trying what I though might be the code from an email they had sent me.

Updated on Jan 26, 2009

I have been running this for 2 months now and just today I completely lost all data in the database. This program is kind of plain but does the job however losing a data base that takes weeks to put together isn't an acceptable characteristic of a scheduling program.

Updated on Nov 19, 2009

I was emailed an offer to upgrade to version 4.0 which appeared to be a better version so I researched the changes made to the new version and decided to try it. I had finally gotten version 3.7 to work well with my multiple drive system (a lot of work in it's own). The upgrade required a conversion of the database file and placed an "old" copy in storage. To make a long story short, the new database didn't contain any data and when I tried to go back to the previous version and convert back to my "old" database it was corrupt. I therefore lost a years worth of database building and have now decided to just use Google Calender. My advice would be if you decide to try the version 4, make a copy of your database to a safe location such as a CD or thumb drive, create a restore point, and then try the new version. If you use a thumb drive, make sure you remove it before upgrading. That way if your database doesn't work after conversion then you have a chance to get 3.7 back at least.
