I was freaking out for sec. I'm kinda lazy when it comes to reading comments. I wish I would have read #4, #13, #23, #50 b4 I upgraded.

I guess they trick you by telling stating "free upgrades" so they won't lose out on any profit. I dunno. The program costs $50.

Oh yea... you can get a free version if you comment 50 times or something in the LeaderTask forum. Ya okay...it's really not that serious. I tried it...I think I commented like 2 or 3 times. I just gave up.

But I have to say...this program is awesome.

Thanks #25!!!!!!!!!
NOTE: The file extension for backups for LeaderTask is .ltb. If you need to load it, simply click File then Open, then browse for and click your most recent backup to bring back your data.

I have just started an Open University course and was really hoping to find some form of organisational software to help me plan my study/meetings/deadlines etc.. Fortunately I found it with LeaderTask. It's not the most simplest of programs but it is thorough and it does exactly what it says it will.

The only con i found when i downloaded the program was that there was already somebody else's/demo entries written onto the calender and it took me a while to erase all of the data that they put on there.
Apart from that i am very pleased and know that this program is really gonna help keep me organised with my studies.

#6, #9, #32: I would never use any Google product which stores my personal info. (such as Google Calendar or GMail).

If you're happy for Google to store your personal information on their servers even after you've "deleted" it, then fine; but I prefer to keep my personal data locally, or at least on a site that genuinely deletes it when I click Delete (instead of moving it to an eternal trash box).

Be careful about launching the upgrade feature. It claims there is an update, downloads and installs, but unfortunately it overwrites the GAOTD license and reverts to a trial version! Reinstalled from the GAOTD site okay, but tomorrow you'd be in a pickle.

To Ashraf, from Bill.
Hi I noted your counterpart freeware, and also Kalender, and wondered if you knew how they compared.
Thanks Bill.

PS, there is no need for the negativity of marking this question down as unhelpful, nor any other question others may ask, by those people of a discouraging nature. Instead, perhaps you could write a comment of thanks, to the excellent contributors.

@#24 - Tony
Amen brother. Fact is, 75% of the people who yammer and whine on this board DON'T know what they're talking about and DON'T get it. They don't download the software and try it before posting idiotic questions or comparisons, or, conversely...they give it a 5 minute once-over-lightly and then compose an authoritative sounding tome "review"... full of nothing more than hyperbole and unsupported opinion - no benchmarks or objective criteria. Either way is a waste of bandwidth and disk space. And misleading to someone actually interested in trying out the software.

#8-- Have you tried Evolution (available for Windows or Linux) as an alternative to MS Outlook. It has reminders, email, to-do list, and more. I would prefer it to this program which reportedly has deleted someone's Outlook folders when it was uninstalled. If you want a PIM that's free but doesn't handle email, Vista has one built-in that many people don't know about (Windows Calendar), and there's Essential PIM.

http://www.dipconsultants.com/evolution/features.htm

http://www.essentialpim.com/

Both are free. Evolution is open source. The other is not, and there is a premium version available if you want to pay for it. Click carefully so you get the free version.

I didn't get this one. But to address a couple of previous comments about background operations and online sync activities, I have problems with programs that are always running unknown services in the background and syncing themselves with a variety of web locations online, be it updates or uploading data or downloading programs or whatever, that we may not be aware of. Some such programs, even paid ones, have turned out to be less than honorable. Several come to mind.

We have no way, as users, to know exactly what they are doing, they are gobbling up system resources, slowing down systems, and we often have no idea why. Total trust in that kind of programs is often not advised. They can be doing anything a programmer instructs them to do, like it or not.

Give me something that runs when I tell it to, does what I expect it to do, and then becomes completely inactive. And something that doesn't invade my system, change things around, and try to take over. Give me transparency.

If this one deletes email sub-folders as mentioned before, (without asking for owner approval), that discredits it right away, in my book. And if it's always running something in the background, especially interacting with the uncertain web locations, it's not for me.

But as always, many thanks to our friends at GAOTD!

This software is expensive compared to all the free versions of organizers. The developer should do his/her homework and determine if there is a need and what products are currently out there. One product that they would find is Chandler. http://chandlerproject.org/.
How it operates is above my personal skill set, but here... http://chandlerproject.org/vision is a great explanation as to what they did for their homework. Chandler is FREE, web and desktop based, and in the past 3 months it rocks! LeaderTask needs to go back to school.

This LeaderTask 6.4.1 program is the single-user version of the LeaderTask Company Management "network" version that was offered here at GAOTD a couple months ago.

I made the mistake of letting the earlier version slip by, but when I went back and looked it was a big discussion about the licensing of the program. People were concerned about how to use "Company Management" software with a not-for-commercial-use license. There were very few negative comments about the software itself.

So, when this download became available, I got today's version and I was excited to see that it had a lot of features that would be useful to the home user for improvement projects or remodeling, maybe looking for a new home.

One of the things that's really great is the ability to set up a nested structure of projects with associated tasks and sub-tasks. Even Outlook 2007 can't seem to manage this basic structure.

You can add subtasks, and notes or links to web pages and use it to keep related information organized. I have been doing a lot of this with Outlook and OneNote, but it's great having everything in one place.

The program comes with some examples showing how you might use the program to track a few projects, like building a corporate website, providing employee training, and home business stuff.

If you're reasonably computer literate and have a home-based business or a project you're struggling to get your arms around, I would recommend downloading LeaderTask and giving it a trial!

RE: Thunderbird/PIM/cell phone

Looking for an organizer that can handle my mailreader, cell phone and calendar/notes/meetings. Don`t like Outlook (don`t like Microsoft at all).

Ole -

Take a look at InfoSelect from MicroLogic - http://www.miclog.com/

I've been using it since it came out as Tornado back in the early '80s and wouldn't trade it for anything. Not free, but incredibly versatile - including built-in browser, e-mail and pretty much every bell and whistle you might want.

There is another kind of changelog which might be worth mentioning (I find it quite funny).

1) 2007 11 24 , LT v5.00 : 4,6 MB , 35 $
2) 2008 05 13 , LT v5.59 : 5,3 MB , 35 $
3) 2008 09 11 , LT v5.79 : 5,5 MB , 35 $
4) 2009 01 23 , LT v6.1.3: 3,9 MB , 50 $
5) 2009 05 01 , LT v6.4.1: 4,5 MB , 50 $

Watch the change between 3) and 4) und imagine the short (virtual) "fuss" between setup size and price tag that happened near the end of 2008:
"I'm pretty big, I wanna go down to, say, 3,0 MB."
"Go down? Are you crazy, man? UP it goes, to 70 $ at the very least!"

What I like most is that it is portable. That will allow you to carry your schedules, what-to-do, deadlines, etc, in your USB. And besides, on going to their website, they even have a free PDA version that can sync with Leader Task. I am still in the process of learning how to install this cab file into my PDA.

And then there's also Kalender. Altough free, Uses a propietary format, but I guess it could also be used to organize business deals. It works excellent for the freelancer for sure. Calendar, address book, organizer and reminder are included.

This is exactly what I've been looking for. It's not quite as intuitive as a Microsoft product would be (hence, after installing it, when you open the program it has projects and tasks already set up so you can see how it works--kind of like a sample business you could open for QuickBooks). The ability to set up different projects and have tasks for each project is a lot more intuitive to the way people work than to have a big long list of tasks (that may be grouped together) as Outlook would do. You can also indent tasks (have subtasks for tasks) and move tasks up and down to reflect prioritization. I am excited to replace all my post-it notes and Outlook tasks with this program. We'll see how it goes.

If you have an old version, I recommend NOT installing this over the original unless you are certain you have backups, because it wiped out all of my old information. I had to go in and load my old information from a backup. Thank goodness I had a backup, because if I hadn't, I'd have lost everything. I use this software daily to manage my business, and it's a great piece of software, but I would have been devastated if I didn't have backups.

I'm not really sure where the negative votes are coming from. I started using LeaderTask last year when it was given away and I haven't looked back since. In fact, my computer became unstable and I had to rebuild. After OS installation, I went to LeaderTask and bought a license.
Why?
1) I needed something that would allow the ability create a hierarchy of tasks. This is something Microsoft Outlook can not do.
2) I manage enough projects to make your head spin. And mine often does. LT allows me to create tasks for individual projects. I even created a "template" of all the tasks required for projects so that when I start up a new project I am not starting cold. Copy/Paste and fill in the details.
3) I hate being alone with software so I found the LeaderTask online community forum where LT developers and other owners exchange ideas, answer questions and think up enhancements for future versions. And would you believe that those ideas find their way into subsequent releases?
4) I wanted something that is big enough, flexible enough, and powerful enough to handle what I do with it. But at the same time I didn't want to see everything all at once. So LT has the ability to create filters. I can view by project, by category, by resource, or time frame. I can create personal filters to only see what I am working on next week.
5)I have explained only a few things I like about LeaderTask.
6)I am sure that I do not even know all the things that are possible with LeaderTask.

If you have not tried it - and I mean really tried it - then you don't get it.

I've been using this since the first giveaway: version 5. something.
Program is very useful since it let's you prepare subtasks in a tree format, use drag and drop for reorganizing, save web links and any other documents as attachments to the project, etc...
Lots of features and a nice look make it a keeper.

Also, you can check your e-mail, and download an add-on that had most/all of the features in this program, as well as many others.

RE @1:
Well, I'm back - looked at it and it seems quite impressive - very much aligned as a corporate utility with extensive time management for projects - a step up from Gannt Charts! (If you know what they are, this package could be for you.
UPDATE:
Just been to their website/forum.
Seems to be some unhappy purchasers there as far as support goes, not the product. However, I'm now not sure if this isn't only a DEMO (time-limited)and not really free. Much talk of 45 days......

However, the product seems quite capable so far.
But is it "free"?

Not a bad software. I personally use this to schedule in all my class assignments and due dates, and it has proved itself extremely helpful. Installation on Vista Home Prem. 64-bit was smooth. I would strongly suggest this program, but also remember there are freeware options, such as EssentialPIM free edition. This is an update from a previously released version on GOTD. For full review and verdict, see below.

The program itself is very well designed, except in this day and age, if it doesn't sync online and the likes, it's probably useless to most modern users. (MS Outlook and Google Calendar are extreme alternatives that are popular)

Oh and I should say that yes "Vista" is not mentioned in "System Requirements" above but v6.1.3 (the one referenced in my review linked above) worked on Vista (32-bit Home Premium) with just a few avoidable bugs (bugs mainly occurred if you didn't run as Administrator). That being said, I am going to go out on a limb and say v6.4.1 (today's giveaway) also works on Vista.

LeaderTask was given out on Jan 23, 2009 as v6.1. I wrote a fairly extensive review on it back then. You can read it by clicking here.

Today's is v6.4. I tried searching for any sort of changelog but it does not seem like the developer keeps much of one (there are posts on their forums asking for what are the changes in new version with no reply so far).

Here are some free alternatives:
Raindlendar
Sunbird
EssentialPIM
