Task Coach – Your friendly task manager

Sponsored Link
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.
Task Coach Features

Task Coach currently (0.78.4) 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 Outlook or Thunderbird onto a task viewer.
* Attachments can be added to tasks, notes, and categories by dragging and dropping files, e-mail messages from Outlook or Thunderbird, 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 ScheduleWorld.

There is a todo-list application for iPhone and iPod Touch that can synchronize with Task Coach through the network, starting with version 0.73.2 of Task Coach. Main features are

* Hierarchical categories.
* Editing of task subject, description, dates and completed status.
* Tap on the task's led icon to mark it complete.

    am a new user to Kubuntu and am trying to install the taskcoach by using terminal

    the problem i am having is that the software is downloaded but is not installing

    it is asking for password while running the sudo statement and while entering the password, nothing is written in the terminal

  2. Heena says:

    By default, sudo requires that users authenticate themselves with a password (NOTE: by default this is the user’s password, not the root password). Once a user has been authenticated, a timestamp is updated and the user may then use sudo without a password for a short period of time

    I have taskcoach running on my windows XP computer and now I’m trying to run it on my ubuntu 11.10

    I’ve added the following to software sources / other software

    and it looks like the following lines were created:
    http://ppa.launchpad.net/taskcoach-developers/ppa/ubuntu onelric main
    http://ppa.launchpad.net/taskcoach-developers/ppa/ubuntu oneiric main (Source Code)

    I have no idea why I have the source code.

    I’m not sure what to do next. Task coach does not seem to be listed in the ubuntu software center, so I’m thinking I need some sudo commands?
