Can't register this. GAOTD tells me it's registered, but on the program I'm told its an unregistered version and a 30-day trial
Any advice welcome.

As several users above posted, I can't get the program to register. I have installed and activated (per the Activate file) at least 3 times, and when I click on 'About' it tells me I have the unregistered/30 day version. When I click on 'Enter License' it gives a field to enter a license code - which you don't get, because the activation file is supposed to register it. Please help. :)

I have always looked at the Thumbs up and Thumbs Down as an indication if the basic description and PRICE were describing an interesting program. At $40 this program started with perhaps a $30 strike against it and the product description wasn't interesting enough for people to go further. First impressions!

The program itself is acceptable and workable. I doubt there are many buyers at $40.

WOW. They still make these programs. These WERE nice back in the day but who really spends time logging checks in Quickens checkit anymore? Most phones have a todo list or access to one, no one uses a PC, unless they HAVE to use Outlook for a todo list anymore. Just sayin.

Regarding my post above where I got the message that it was the trial version and good for only 30 days, I then clicked around in the "help" section and found that it is now registered. Yay!

Additional @7:
Giovanni was @5, not @6.
@2 The installer size has nothing to do with size on hard disk or size in RAM. Task Manager shows Daily To-Do List.exe is 102MB in RAM when running, and Hard Drive size will depend on the size of the database created to hold all your notes. You did not include the size used by your favorites that you listed, so I'm not sure whether your complaint is a comparison.
However, to provide a comparison using Task Manager to measure MB, Outlook shows only 69MB when running. Chrome shows 8 instances right now on my machine, from 20MB to 160MB.

The product did not activate properly when I used Advanced install and then tried to activate, but when I re-installed without advanced options it activated properly.
This is a very nice todo-list scheduler. It is not as complex as a professional business todo/scheduler, and it doesn't make convenient shopping lists to take with you on your phone, but it can export to HTML or CSV.

It crashed when I tried to drop an outlook email into a new task. I had to re-start it. I then tried to have a task open for editing, then drag and drop into the attachments. Crashed again, but I noticed a box I could check while submitting a bug report that auto-restarted.

When dragging and dropping items into attachments I was given the option of adding a shortcut to the task or embedding the object in the database. Shortcut works, (better not move the original) but embedding tells me the item is locked. (It wasn't)

I tried to create a couple of sticky-notes. Apparently you can only create one per task.

This is named "Daily To-Do List" but there are links to "Swift To-Do" and "Ultimate To-Do".
I think I see the difference. In comparison to "Daily To-Do", "Swift To-Do" promises the following:
Users of Swift To-Do List report these results on average:

Feeling of overwhelm reduced by 41.6%
Forgetting reduced by 56%
Stress reduced by 33.8%
Control increased by 178%

This would be a nice product for $9.95.

@6 Giovanni: First you complain about only 22% being interested in downloading, then you provide other free alternatives?
Come on, get real Giovanni. The thumbs up and thumbs down are a quick indication of whether a person is interested in even downloading the software. That's all it has ever been used for by its users, so quit complaining.
Here's a suggestion though: Ask GOTD to make the count based on users that look and then download, and users that look and then go away. Then maybe you and others can quit complaining about when people mark thumbs up or down.

Also, it did not activate properly. That's unusual. I usually have no trouble.

As for the product: A todo list is already part of most email programs. Outlook has Calendar/Todo lists. So does Firefox/ Thunderbird and Chrome/Google apps. Evernote attaches to Outlook, extending it. Google apps works in the cloud. A new todo list/scheduler must be as simple as those, but offer much more. To be practical for everyday users it must be available when a person is at a store. Today, I think a Todo list should be able to take en email or an SMT from a phone and create a todo list, and should be able to send such a simplified list to someone else on a phone.
Otherwise, desktop power users may want something more complex for business.
This is a good start, but I think it needs SMT capability to make it stand out.

Hey John,
Thank you for your prompt reply. Thank you for taking the time to help me.
I will certainly recommend Dextronet to everyone.
You do excellent business.

**** To all Giveaway subscribers:

I posted above asking for help with the license code. The company representative responded to my request for help and 25 mins. later I had the registered version of this program.
Great customer service (and for a free program nonetheless!!!)

Attention dial-up users: after 1-1/2 hour download, there is a 2-hour download of "extra" files (.NET framework stuff).

This software is for people who would rather plan things than actually DO things.

Do a search for configurable alternative "Ample Notice for Windows" and save yourself a hassle, overhead, disk space, and time.

The license window says

*Licensed to: N/A N/A

*Single license for one computer
*For non-commercial use only

Does this mean I have activated it correctly?

You've got to be kidding! $39.95 for a program the type of which is available FREE all over the web. Yes, the program installed fine and works OK............but it should be FREEWARE

Price a little steep - have found similar software in Walmart (Canada) for around $10 Cdn - but I am giving it a try - Win 8.1 (64bit) 8GB Ram & (NOT) installing on C: - Thanks to #4 - And Thank you to GOTD & Dextronet for today's offering. PS - maybe an idea might be a small pop-up window or you move to a window that IDENTIFIES itself -as the date you are writing a reminder for, I was confused, used the buttons & all I REALLY had to do was start typing. A little more clarification for us neophytes. Thank you

Installed with a little hassle, but that was my fault. Kick the tires for awhile and liked what I saw. Easy to navigate day planner. You don't have to guess at anything. Its all there in front of you. Making honey dew list is quick and easy. The different skins are nice too. The only thing I don't like is the price. If I had to paid for it, I'd pass on it

For a program like this to succeed, it has to be able to sync to iOS, android & windows etc. PC only programs will diminish as the world goes mobile/watch based.

I have just installed and activated and says activated successfully but still showing "buy now 30 days left" on the top right corner of the program, please advise.

I tried a lot of to-do-list softwares in the past to find something what matches my needs, and I'm pretty sure I tried this one under another name, yet I can't remember the name.

Besides, even if this is the best ever to-do-list software on earth, $39.95 is still ridicoloulsy expensive.

Receive reminders for tasks that are due soon.
Analyze the details of your tasks to determine the best use of your time.
Apply filters to hide unimportant tasks.
Collaborate with other people on projects.

"You can deploy the program on USB and carry it with you. You can also place the database file into a Dropbox folder and access it from anywhere." - http://www.dextronet.com/daily-to-do-list

So it will be activated, I found it best to install the program to the computer...and then go to File-"Deploy to USB Flash Drive".

In Dropbox, I created a "Daily To-Do List" folder. In Daily To-Do List, I chose File-"Relocate database", and chose the "Daily To-Do List" folder I created in Dropbox.

If you only use Windows, this is a great option. (I use multiple operating systems...)

22% THUMBS UP only? Come on, be serious guys...

This is a very good program, in my view, especially if you are engaged in many activities, since it helps you create daily, weekly or monthly to-do lists with a nice structured and easy to use GUI layout (calendar panel on the left-side, to-do list section, and notes and attachments panel on the right-side).

This way you can easily navigate between different dates and insert links, files or images as a reminder, with the cool additional ability to to drag and drop emails inside the to-do list, so as to create tasks from them (supports almost all popular email clients out there).

Users can manage tasks priority by adding a color to each of them (red for the highest priority or yellow for the lowest), with the ability to export their notes from each task to DOC, TXT, RTF, HTML, ODT or PDF.

So overall it's a KEEPER for me and give it so many THUMBS DOWN is simply senseless and silly!


* Cute Sticky Notes (==> My personal First Choice)
Very handy and user-friendly sticky notes and reminder FREE app, designed to manage your important notes, to-do lists and reminders with ease.
Unlike similar apps out there, it gives you lots of options to customize your notes into nearly anything you may want to match your desktop, giving you even the ability to add PNG pictures to them.
Reminders can be scheduled on a one-time or on recurring basis with or without sound notifications.


* Nimbus Note
What if you could create notes with document, tables, hyperlinks and/or photo attachments, build to-do lists and then synchronize them with any other devices out there for FREE?
This way you can read your notes wherever and wherever you are, as long as an Internet connection is available for you (max 100 Mb per month, with a note size limit of 50Mb, in the FREE Edition).
Notes can be tagged or sorted by creation date, name, size or the 'to-do' entry, with the additional cool ability to import them from Evernote, Text and Word files.
Can also be used as a task manager utility, since you can assign your notes a "to-do list" option, containing all the tasks you should complete in order to achieve a specific goal.

Easily installed.
Remember to click on bottom left hand corner "Advanced"
Otherwise the software setup will just go by default.
You can tick or untick the boxes according to your taste.

I always want to control where the software is installed.
The software developer says you must be administrator to do that. Which I am.

Remember to go into Options and untick the box [Automatically start Daily To-Do List] -- under the [General - Start Up] section.

The software by default does not automatically check for updates, which is good.

Check the Hotkeys section in Options, if you wish to reassign hot keys to prevent clash with your other software.

Dextronet says:
"We think when we design software so you don't have to when you use it."

Well ,I hope so too.
I stopped using Swift To-Do List because it was too heavy going.
A To-Do List must be easy and natural to use. Without having to read any manuals. Actually in the normal day to day life, we do no have that many "tasks" to accomplish; such that we need a computer software to handle it. The computer in our heads can sort that out, by simply forgetting the less important tasks.

This genre of software has many freeware rivals. Some are portable too. Nowadays mobile phones have free or very cheap To Do List applications. So Dextronet may or may not win this battle.

It is a clever way to introduce users who want more power, to their Swift To-Do List.

thanks, was looking for something like this. but my only qualm is that its price is too high. its like 2400 INR. for that kind of money i'd rather get a notebook and a pencil like old times...

Looks good, but a 17-MB-Installer for a simple To-Do-List? Even if todays RAM is huge, I want a small memory footprint of a tool, which waits in the background around the clock. Could someone mention, how much RAM it occupies, when minimized to the system tray?

Didn't try this one, because I already have reminders.

Installed and registered without problems on a WIn 8.1 Pro 64 bit system.

A Czech company with name and no address :
We are based in Prague, Czech Republic, member state of European Union.
Your feedback and questions are much appreciated! You can contact Dextronet.com founder Jiri Novotny directly at novotny (at) dextronet (dot) com.

This time I work with a stopwatch. Really!
But most importantly, Daily To-Do List is very easy and fun to use. You can get started with it immediately - download it now and be up and running in just 3 minutes!

Claim correct, installation, activation and entering the first task with day, reminder time and a short note took 1:44 min.

A clear structured resizable window opens, a calendar on the left on the right the window to enter and manage tasks. The program can be exported to a portable USB drive. That's good. There are several skins for an individual touch.

The program creates "sticky notes", too. Long time that I have used "sticky notes". It was an early hit by 3M (IIRC).

Entering several tasks for other days I am missing a clear sign on the calender on which dates other tasks are programmed.

Starting the portable version works, but I do not find a way to synchronize it with the desktop version - simply import is not sufficient, because I could have defined different tasks on the desktop and later on the portable drive.

And this is the main point. SYNCHRONIZATION. In times of so many portable devices, synchronization is crucial, be it with GOOGLE calendar, be it with connected Android apps, be it via WLAN or what ever contact to a different device. The "follow us" on Facebook, Twitter or Google plus, shows, that the company has at least understood some principles on internet (LOL) - but not implemented task list on cloud storage or other ways to communicate.

A clear and well structured ToDoList planner, too limited in Phone, IPAD, Tablet times.

Uninstalled via reboot. I'll use my internet programs for that.
