Proactime Pro

CNET Editors' review

Proactime Pro is a productivity software suite combining the functions of a personal information manager with time-planning and scheduling tools based on the developer's training and managerial expertise. It's designed to help the user focus on one task at a time at maximum efficiency and distinguish between productive and unproductive or time-wasting activities. In design and function, it offers a refreshing take on an essential class of software.

Proactime Pro's "dashboard" sports a wide toolbar topped by tabbed keys, a file menu, search tools, a calendar display, and an intriguing feature, real-time tracking of workload and productivity hours. The main display is divided into a series of expandable, spreadsheet-like windows for projects, notes, files, and such; a daily schedule; and an activities list. Tabs labeled "Free Your Mind" and "Prepare Your Actions" help users prioritize as well as evaluate their activities, including for criteria such as community impact and self-actualization, based on managerial techniques. An Instructional Guide tab, extensive Help file, and considerable documentation help users understand and make the most out of this interesting productivity tool. One of the many unusual aspects of Proactime Pro is its capability to plan your schedule around your "identified cycles of energy," which sounds a bit airy but simply means those times in your daily schedule when you're the most and least productive, such as mornings or after lunch.

Proactime Pro definitely stands out from the crowd among PIMs and scheduling tools, and it combines a top-flight PIM with unique features that can make a difference, and we think it's worth a look.

Editor's note: This is a review of the full version of Proactime Pro 1.16.9. The trial version is limited to 15 days trial only.

    "PROACTIME PRO, PIM/GTD application for creative users"

    May 16, 2012  |   By balbruno

    Version: Proactime Pro 7.0.3

    Pros

    The only application I know which adds to the GTD approach the management of the needed resources to be able to really accomplish what has been planned at due date. As a sophisticated organization tool it enables users to reach a high level of productivity, to avoid negative stress and to promote creativity.

    Cons

    To make the best use of PROACTIME one has to invest some time to get the most of it. Butit is worth it.

    Summary

    PROACTIME supports the linear and lateral approaches of time management. It helps to accomplish quickly the daily (reactive) tasks in order to invest the remaining time in those proactive and creative tasks which explore and prepare one's future and make the right things happen.

    "AVOID - Installs Rogue Program in French!"

    March 30, 2012  |   By The_Older_Geek

    Version: Proactime Pro 6.1.1

    Pros

    None
    Proactime uninstalls well BUT it has a rogue program addition that is impossible to uninstall.

    Cons

    Proactime Pro is too complicated. GUI is very poor.
    The installation includes a rogue program written entirely in French.

    Summary

    The Proactime Pro program also downloads some weird software program called "WDOptimizer" without your permission. WDOptimizer is impossible to use and uninstall, and the program and help files are all in French!
