Task Coach for the desktop

The desktop version of Task Coach (Windows, Mac, Linux, BSD) has the following features:

  • Creating, editing, and deleting tasks and subtasks.
  • Tasks have a subject, description, priority, start date, due date, a completion date and an optional reminder. Tasks can recur on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
  • 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.
  • Tasks can be created by dragging an e-mail message from a mail user agent (Outlook, Thunderbird, Claws Mail, Apple Mail) onto a task viewer.
  • Attachments can be added to tasks, notes, and categories by dragging and dropping files, e-mail messages, or URL's onto a task, note or category.
  • 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 and notes can be assigned to user-defined categories.
  • Settings are persistent and saved automatically. The last opened file is loaded automatically when starting Task Coach.
  • Tracking 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.
  • Tasks, notes, effort, and categories can be exported to HTML and CSV (comma separated format). Effort can be exported to iCalendar/ICS format as well.
  • Tasks, effort, notes, and categories can be printed. When printing, Task Coach prints the information that is visible in the current view, including any filters and sort order.
  • Task Coach can be run from a removable medium.
  • Tasks and notes can be synchronized via a Funambol server such as My Funambol.
