Editors' review

Daisho provides you with a datebook you can access anytime from any computer. This highly detailed calendar and organizational system has an impressive collection of options for busy people, however it is somewhat time-intensive to master.

Users who are familiar with Microsoft's Outlook program will find many of Daisho's features familiar. Traditional options that make choreographing daily life easier are here, such as setting up meetings, reminding users about important phone calls, e-mailing meeting reminders, and managing a contact list.

This free 30-day trial also provides some interesting details that many casual users may not find useful, but others may see as essential. Within the Contacts there are places to input where the user met a person and how they are associated, which may prove useful for users with enormous contact lists. Another unique aspect is the Radar, which maps future appointments into a radar screen for quick forecast of which days will be busiest in the near future.

While Daisho provides a great deal of services, it may take getting used to. The main navigation screen is cluttered and confusing, making practically nothing intuitive. Luckily, the Help menu has an incredibly detailed guide. Another issue is its promised compatibility with USB sticks, allowing it to transfer from computer-to-computer. We did not attempt this option, but had difficulty finding options to perform the task or information about how to do it when searching Help.

Although it may take a large chunk of the 30-day trial to figure out Daisho's many options, users willing to put in the time might find it to be the comprehensive organizational system they need.

    "Lost my data after software update"

    July 05, 2011   |   By lynnceline

    Version: Daisho 4.3

    Pros

    This seemed like a nice, simple way to track the projects I was working on. I was loving it an telling my co-workers how great it was! Then, I installed a software update and lost all my data. I am very annoyed.

    Cons

    After being prompted to install a software update, all my project tracking data was lost. Very, very annoyed with this product.

    Summary

    I loved this product until it lost all my data after installing a software update. I was using the free version - maybe that's why. There was no warning presented to the user informing that this would occur. Horribly annoyed by this. I have now lost time as I am trying to remember everything that I was tracking with this piece of #@!@ tool.

    I will not be upgrading to the paid version.
