We are in a habit to put the reminders in our cell phones. And, I think it will be a better option if we can do the same thing on our laptops. The tasks will be managed in a better and more convenient way. So, I would like to review the tool Task List Guru. It will help you to manage your schedule in an efficient way.
Task List Guru is a freeware of 6 MB. You can save your schedule and other important tasks. It is a user friendly tool. All the options are presented as per the convenience of the user.
As the snapshot shown above, task list guru consists of your various lists on the left hand side and the tasks contained in the selected list in the right. At the bottom, you can see the notes related to the task. To start with the software, click on add button on the top right. The Add Task dialogue box will be opened as shown in the snapshot below.
Enter the name of the task. Set the priority: Highest, High, Medium, Low or Lowest. Set the type of task: Major Task, Minor Task, Small Task, Triviality, Idea or Document. You can also set the due date if required. While you are adding the task, you can set the reminder. The reminder tab is present next to task. You can choose the reminder date and time and the frequency can be chosen as: Once, Hourly or Every day. If the laptop is switched off at the time of reminder, it will remind you whenever you switch it on after that time. Any further details related to the task can be added in the notes. Now, OK to add the task.
In case, you want to make the changes in your task later on you can select the Edit button next to Add. If in case the task has been cancelled or for any reason you want to delete the task: Select the task and delete it. You can rearrange the task up or down with the help of arrow buttons.
Similar to task, we have various options to manage the list. Just below the task toolbar, there is the list toolbar. You can Add task list, add sub task list, edit or delete them, toggle them up or down and expand or collapse items. You can also right click on the list for various options or use To-Do List from the menu.
There are hotkeys available for every function. With a regular use of the tool, it will become further easy to work with it. For any further details, go to help menu and use the Quick Start Guide as shown below.
