Task Coach is a simple open source todo manager to manage personal tasks and todo lists. It grew out of my frustration that well-known task managers, such as those provided with Outlook or Lotus Notes, do not provide facilities for composite tasks. Often, tasks and other things todo consist of several activities. Task Coach is designed to deal with composite tasks.
- Creating, editing, and deleting tasks and subtasks.
- Tasks have a subject, description, priority, start date, due date and a completion date.
- Tasks can be viewed as a list or as a tree.
- Tasks can be sorted by all task attributes, e.g. subject, budget, budget left, due date, etc.
- Several filters to e.g. hide completed tasks or view only tasks that are due today.
- Task status depends on its subtask and vice versa. E.g. if you mark the last uncompleted subtask as completed, the parent task is automatically marked as completed too.
- Tasks can be assigned to user-defined categories.
- Settings are persistent and saved automatically. The last opened file is loaded automatically when starting Task Coach.
- Track time spent on tasks. Tasks can have a budget. Time spent can be viewed by individual effort period, by day, by week, and by month.
- The Task Coach file format (.tsk) is XML.
What´s New in version 1.2.8:
- Task Coach wouldn't open task files when a task viewer was sorted by reminder date/time. (3153541)
- Correctly fix drag-and-drop from Thunderbird. (2916405, 3058781)
- Correctly keep track of selected items when using shift-click to select a range of items so that the right items are exported when the user exports a selection. (3154036)
- Task Coach would crash at launch if TaskCoach.ini could not be loaded.
- When marking the only subtask of a task uncompleted, the subtask would stay green. (3151018)
- On Windows 7 and Vista, the application icon wouldn't show up correctly. (3158445)
- Correctly use mail message subject when dropping a mail message from Outlook. (2806617)
- The effort edit dialog now has a 'Edit task' button next to the task selection drop down to quickly open the effort's task.
- The effort viewer now has 'Start tracking effort' and 'Stop tracking effort' buttons on the toolbar. The 'Start tracking effort' starts tracking effort for the task(s) of the selected effort(s). This enables you to quickly resume tracking the most recent task by selecting the topmost effort record and hit the 'Start tracking effort' button. The 'Stop tracking effort' button simply does what it says and was added for consistencies sake. (http://uservoice.com/a/fHSAX)
