Editors' Review

+

You've probably had the dubious pleasure of walking into a store with the intention of buying a variety of needed items, only to draw a complete blank once you're in the aisles. What To Do is portable freeware that creates task lists designed to put an end to such forgetfulness.

What To Do downloads as a ZIP file, but since it's completely portable you can save it in any directory or even to a mobile device or USB drive. During the initial setup, we could choose destination directories for the folders What To Do uses to store our task lists as well as a separate folder for receipts, notes, and other items we might like to save but prefer to keep separate from our task list archive. The program's interface opened with a helpful explanation of a Task Description displayed in an information panel that also linked to an extensive, fully indexed Help file. The program basically involves using the Tab key to move between data entry fields to enter a brief description of the task, set its priority and end date, and select File Under options. A Done check box let us mark the task as completed without removing it from the list, a handy option for marking one's progress. We could add new tasks, change their priority, and remove items easily from the main list view. Below was a notes field that was ruled and laid out like a sheet of yellow legal paper for a familiar look and feel. A button labeled To Knowledge let us select and enter a variety of Relationships for each item, such as the name, location, and type of store where you bought something unusual.

Task list tools, notekeepers, and personal organizers are common these days. What To Do stands out with a nice blend of flexibility and ease of use, not to mention total portability and a compact size, though portable users should keep track of where What To Do stores its archives. In time, What To Do can build up an impressive amount of useful personal data as well as keep you organized.

    "I've been looking for this one a long time!"

    June 05, 2006   |   By Cybercrone1

    Version: What To Do 1.0

    Pros

    I don't understand the person who said it is hard to learn and hard to organize. This program is simplicity itself, very nice interface with soft easy-to-take colors, no excess 'busyness' that so characterizes programs of this type. One of the best features is the ability to assign three different categories to a task, and display only tasks in a particular category if you wish.

    Cons

    I agree with the user who said he wishes you could sort on any field. I would add that it should be by clicking on heading.

    April 11, 2006   |   By Raget

    Version: What To Do 1.0

    Pros

    This program is handy for people who like to stay organised, with nice directory functions

    Cons

    It is hard to understand and hard to use, taking a long time to work things out, and a long time to organise things

    "Useful, honest and almost perfect"

    December 17, 2003

    Version: What To Do 1.0

    Summary

    This program causes no problem on my Windows XP machine. It has no ads or other junks that sometimes come with freeware.

    I wanted a simple to-do list with priority rankings and notes. This program fits the bill very well. It also allows you to relate places where you do certain things, but I admit I don't use this feature very often. This feature is rather unique and thus somewhat difficult to learn how to use at first, but the program does have nice help files.

    A well-thought-out program.
