Editors' Review

If you spend a lot of time on your computer, it makes sense to keep your schedule or calendar there, too, since that's where you're most likely to see it. Desktop-Reminder is a simple program that can alert you to scheduled tasks, ensuring that you don't miss an important appointment or deadline.

The program's interface is quite simple, consisting of an area where scheduled tasks are listed and a few buttons across the top. Creating a new task is easy; you simply enter the date, time (if desired), description, and recurrence. Although many programs of this sort let you set priority levels for tasks, Desktop-Reminder does not. It does, however, let you select the point at which a task becomes marked as urgent, for example, two days before it's due. True to its name, Desktop-Reminder lets you set alerts that notify them when a task is coming due; these alerts are functional enough but not particularly customizable. One thing we didn't like about Desktop-Reminder was its lack of a calendar view; all of the tasks are listed chronologically, but there's no way to view them on a weekly or monthly basis. The program also lacks a Help file, although this is not a serious drawback; there are too few features for a Help file to really be necessary. Overall, we think that Desktop-Reminder is a fine program for those seeking a bare-bones reminder, but it will likely be a disappointment to people who desire a more full-featured scheduler.

Desktop-Reminder installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program.

"Get Organized - Stay Organized"

June 03, 2013  |  By KedallTom

 |  Version: Desktop-Reminder 2.56

Pros

I liked the program so much I purchased the full version.

- Extremely easy to use; no user manual needed.
- Program uses a combination of auditory and visual cues.
- Keeps you motivated to manage your time effectively.

Cons

Allows for Task start times only, no end time designation available.

The biggest negative is that the program deletes completed tasks. So much for your sense of accomplishment! All you see are tasks to be completed. Furthermore, there is no option to retain completed task history for use in performance and work method improvement evaluation.

Summary

I can recommend the program to people who do not require more finite task scheduling or retention of completed work for future reference.
