Task Coach is a simple open source todo manager to keep track of personal tasks and todo lists. It grew out of a frustration that most task managers 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. In addition, it offers effort tracking, categories, and notes. Task Coach is available for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and iPhone and iPod Touch.
- 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.
- Task Coach wouldn't run on Ubuntu 9.04. This is because Task Coach tried to use a feature from wxPython 220.127.116.11 while Ubuntu 9.04 ships with wxPython 18.104.22.168. (3054431)
- Only close edit dialogs when the edited item is really deleted, not when the item is hidden by a filter. (3042880)
- Refresh filtered task viewers at midnight to properly show tasks that become active. (3035384)
- The checkbox for mutual exclusive subcategories in the category editor would be unchecked even if a category had exclusive subcategories.
