Shared hierarchical toDo list software? (not web)
« on: April 17, 2008, 01:02 PM »
Hi,
I am looking for a hierarchical ToDo list software that allows it to be shared by multiple users (network).
So far, I have found that Agenda At Once and Essential PIM Pro Network support this feature set.
Any other suggestions and/or advice? Thanks a lot. :-)

I'm the designer of SQLNotes www.sqlnotes.net. It can be used as a shared hierarchical ToDo list (and a lot more). It is free while in beta (*). New features include integrated Gantt charts (to be released today or tomorrow as version 0.9.23). There is also a "very" long thread here on DC.

(*): Customers of mine have up to 8 concurrent users (max=255) and a 40MB database handing CRM and task related information in a production environment, so it is very stable!

AbstractSpoon's ToDoList does this very well. We've had it working fast across a network with 10+ users concurrently. To work with a lot of users at once, you do need to configure it to work the way you want. Initial interface is very full (& can seem scary compared to a lot of software now) but is massively efficient once you start using it. Biggest issue is that the column titles are set which might be a problem if you don't think they can be made to fit your circumstances. We just keep finding more and more things that it is the best solution for - and that is true even for people who see themselves as IT illiterate technophobes.

Completely free.

If you had a lot of money to burn...I would suggest JIRA (http://www.atlassian.com/). It is extremely likely that this system is way too much overkill for your needs, but hey this is as good a place as any to show my admiration for this piece of software :)

AAO I like a lot - is on Bits du Jour for the next 6 hours or so
Essential PIM is also recommended a lot here
SQLNotes - I'm a fanboy now :P
and
ToDoList is a super programme

Thanks a lot for the feedback :-)
ToDoList is indeed great, and free!
EPIM and AAO are nice too, but I figured I don't need the extra features, plus they're not free.

Hi again, I have indeed one more request:
Is there a spanish version of ToDo list?  :)

EssentialPIM does actually have it, but it just has too many unwanted features.

Spanish and French translations of ToDoList available HERE - top left of page.

Both versions appear to be a bit old - especially the Spanish (3.2 Vs 5.5 beta), but maybe you can help Dan update the language file to the current version. 8)

Thanks, you are right... but the spanish link is dead ...
BUT I just run into a very recent forum post, whereas a user is about to complete a spanish translation, so GREAT NEWS!!

You can also do a Google Search http://www.google.co...amp;client=firefox-a

It will lead to the SimpleToDo freeware.
Now if memory serves me well, there is a whole range of software from which the name starts with SimpleXxXx. At least some time ago I also downloaded SimpleDeskTop, because both pieces of software were available for Windows and Linux (kinda of a big thing here in my network).
