Debrief offers users a fast way to take down notes and stay on top of their ideas. With its simple layout and directions, this tool will find many fans.

The program's interface may initially worry some, but they will soon discover most of the icons crowding the top of this program are unnecessary. A few minutes of experimenting and clicking around will serve the user much better than a trip to the Help file, though it's available. The program functions primarily as a note-taker. Users click on an icon to write a note and treat it like a word processor (the program is complete with options to change font, color and other text options). The program's biggest asset is its ability to catalog these notes with simple files. Organized like a file tree, users create and save their notes in Personal, Business, or customized folders. The second component of the program is a calendar, which shows what notes are happening on each day. While we would have liked to see an alarm system, this is still a fairly good way to get a glimpse of your daily life. The program's best special feature is its ability to run off reports. Users can see all their personal or business notes run off, or can have specific days filtered into the report.

While the program initially appears cluttered, we found this freeware program to be an excellent tool for those trying to keep their lives simple and organized.

"i lost all my files using this program"

May 02, 2014  |  By gooseman5

 |  Version: Debrief 2.4

Pros

easy to use

Cons

it saves automatically even if you dont want to. it is not able to be saved onto a disk if your laptop or pc crashes and you have to redo them. if you reinstall you cant use the files that you saved on a disk and the files you saved on the disk get erased and replaced by the newest version.

Summary

if you need to keep your files, dont use this program, you will regret it as i do.

"A nice note taking program."

February 19, 2012  |  By wgood54

 |  Version: Debrief 2.4

Pros

Does exactly what it was designed for. It is a daily notepad that helps organize your thoughts or in my case meetings and action items.

Cons

None at this time. Maybe hosting it on a server where you are always using the same data from multiple machines.

Summary

Nice piece of software that I found to be extremely easy to use. I plan on the continued use of this software.
