Task Coach

Task Coach

Task Coach is a simple, open source todo manager to keep track of personal tasks and todo lists. Often, tasks and other things todo consist of several activities. Task Coach is designed to deal with composite tasks. In addition, it offers effort tracking, categories, and notes.

The development of this application grew out of a frustration that well-known task managers, such as those provided with Outlook or Lotus Notes, which do not provide facilities for composite tasks.
