#24, Jason Yarber, yes in a way you are wrong, with MS outlook to use the colaberative side of what this does you need a server, a monster like MS Exchange server 2003 etc to share diaries or an equivilent like kerio mail server or m-daemon with their respective outllok connectors. All three are vastly larger, more complex to use and configure and odly enough cost considerably more! And that would not get you inter group member IM facility.

I have been using this software since GAOTD offer it last month, even when it does what it says. It's very annoying to have the "Update Available" box appearing anytime over everything, since as per GAOTD conditions this software can not be updated, this message is a demonstration the developers does not pay attention to the users.
Have already remove this program from my PC and will pass on it today.
Thanks but no thanks.

LeaderTask, have you considered upgrading the "chat" section to video chat? We here at NBP would be interested in this, the rest of your program has us all here at NBP very interested. We have installed LeaderTask on a small set of computers on our network this morning and it is working perfectly. Would be nice to have an easy way to remove the demo files though.

By the way happy birthday Jim Herrewynen.

another suggestion for next GAOTD release of this... Assuming the IP port is suitably hardened against buffer overrun exploits and resource depletion attacks and uses SSL style encryption adding optional UPNP support to permit the server to have an internet facing presence by optionally adding port forwarding when the server is up and running.

#6 you do not have to dedicate a pc to just the server, the server pc can host a client too, it just needs to be running the server when everyone needs it to be there for colaberation purposes.

One suggestion for the next version of LTCM is to turn the Server into a Service and have the Server admin console be a user mode application that connects to the Service to report Server status.
That will then allow the server to run without having a user logged in like in a true windows server role.

It would be more useful if it would sync with cell phones. My Android has replaced my PDA. Make an Android, IPhone and Blackberry sync app.

I honestly saw no benefit to those of us who have the previous giveaway but newbies might like this bright appointment manager. I would prefer intergration with TASKS and NOTES though as well as the option for the POMODORO technique.

I may be wrong, but it appears to me that all the stuff you can do with this program, can also be done with MS Outlook.

What is the benefit of this software over the ones provided by Google. I use Google Calender, Google Talk, Google Task, which come in the Google (Gmail) product. Calenders are sharable within an organization or just individuals. There is nothing to download or servers to keep up with. What happens if I download this software & then have to upgrade my system or I go from a PC to a MAC?

#6: "I don’t have a dedicated pc for the server side, can the server side be set up on a external website server and if so how do you go about it."

If you want to run the server app -- you don't have to -- it just needs to have a static ip address so the LeaderTask apps running on other PCs can find it. It doesn't need a special server version of Windows or anything like that.

* * *

#18: "Google Calendar, which can be shared, works VERY well for our organization."

FWIW Google is going to expand what they have available to compete with all the new Microsoft *in the cloud* stuff, so it could be a very viable solution. OTOH not every biz wants to rely on someone else, or the *cloud* when it comes to security, especially their valuable customer data. In that sense, not having customer data leave your PCs might make LeaderTask a more secure option for some companies.

LeaderTask is basically a To-Do list, calendar, organizer app -- LeaderTask Company adds a server component, showing the status of everyone's task lists, messages sent between users etc. According to the About window, today's GOTD version of LeaderTask Server is licensed for 4 computers, with a license expiration of 11/1/2010. The server portion itself does not include security or network settings -- Options are limited to language, Run on Windows startup, & Minimize on startup. The client portion is the LeaderTask app many know from earlier GOTD offers, with text, csv, Google Calendar, & Outlook data import/export/syncing http://goo.gl/1G6O6 .

LeaderTask's most obvious feature is it's colorful interface -- from a marketing standpoint/background my opinion is that it's designed to promote the cheerful, always optimistic, constantly positive attitudes that are a mainstay of Sales/Marketing types... IOW I believe there's a reason behind what seem feel is too cartoonish &/or lacking mature style. Compared to some competing solutions, one of LeaderTask's biggest limitations is the lack of connectivity to smartphones, netbooks, & tablet devices etc. when you're away from your desk -- in all fairness though that's something that comes from being a stand-a-lone app rather than a service like Google Calendar, or tied into other services as with some of the MS enterprise packages. And while LeaderTask doesn't offer much when it comes to secure access to company data, being very easy to use & set up, it doesn't require the tech skills/knowledge like more full-featured solutions either. CRM [Customer Relationship Mgmt] like other types of biz or enterprise mgmt software is a Huge field, with loads of apps & packages available -- SourceForge alone hosts 655 open source, CRM projects -- http://goo.gl/2hO22 .

When you unpack today's GOTD .zip file you get LTUsers.exe & LTServer.exe -- Almeza's instructions say to install the Users portion 1st, then the Server portion on 1 PC/server that the clients can access via your network. Though help is on-line only [& sometimes spotty] -- http://goo.gl/QF5R8 -- it does tell you what you need in order to find & set the ip addresses in LeaderTask... if your intended server is not set up with a static ip already, you'll want to research on-line 1st, as that's required. Both LeaderTask Users & Server install to My Documents, & are for the most part portable as Almeza advertises [they do create registry entries when run, but they don't need those entries to run] [If you do not want LeaderTask User to write to the registry (for portable use that's not always cool), you can prevent that using the portableapps.com format]. When you 1st run the Server expect your firewall &/or Windows to ask you to set what network access is allowed. After install the server's folder takes up less than 2 MB with 15 files (FWIW all but 4 can be deleted) -- the client's folder is ~12 MB, with 66 files, 3 folders (FWIW should need 17). [There's nothing *wrong* with having extra files -- I just delete stuff like links to buy more software &/or unneeded language files, if for no other reason than to speed searches & AV scans] Registry adds are very light, limited to the ASProtect key, uninstall, & a couple of file type associations.

I have enjoyed Leadertask for the tree/tabbed displays and the vibrant colors help me enjoy the project planning a little more. Things don't need to be dour to be useful. Even more, it use of system resources is modest, it's intuitive (although I'm using Planning and Project views more discretely at the moment, since tasks defined in one might be categorized differently in the other). I also like the auto-save functionality, although I'm a little puzzled why it's not 100% consistently implemented (i.e. specific "save to disk" icon on notes) but that's minor. In all a very good job. If I see no comparison when I migrate from XP it will be on my "to purchase" task list. ;-) Thanks GAOTD and Almeza.

"Set tasks for employees and control their performance"

I would pay a fortune for software that let me "control" the performance of my employees.

For those that critisize the colors, it's actually very helpful to have this type of color scheme for quicky identifying employees.

If you are already using a current version of MS Outlook on an Exchange server, this is redundant. But otherwise I see this as being very useful.

I have used Leadertask over the last year. I tried Essential Pim but found Leadertask to be more natural for my purposes -- for some reason creating sublinks on a to do list linxing different files or websites really helps me to navigate my thoughts quickly. Leadertask just opened less windows than EssentialPim when creating sublink attachments and I preferred that.

However, I would say that for me personally, other features such as the calender, do remain un-used. So it depends what people want to get out of it.

I was talking to my boss about finding and organizer that we can network with beyond os's (I have windows 7, she has vista) and I thought that this was perfect. However, it's not a free download, it's a 45 day trial. It crashed as soon as I tried to open a new system without all the sample stuff and the giveaway of the day app node is not removing itself from my processes. I've never had these issues and I've downloaded lots of things from this site, so I'm going to go with a faulty program.

It would be great if all the calendars could be automatically amalgamated into one easily accessible Master calendar so that as a manager I can see at a glance what is going on that day. For example, on Friday each employee has a column heading. The time of day (adjustable for our organization's hours and appointment length) goes down the page. I can see how busy everyone is and select free times to schedule team meetings, which when I enter them will appear on everyone's individual calendar.

I like bright colour. In my opinion they should help instead of getting things worse. It is easy to find every item in the GUI. I work with tons of grey software & think that even the blue/pink is a good compilation. Moreover there are no RED/GREEN compilations, so every person will see that colours properly, even people with colour disabilities.
I think that the colour manager knows that & HE IS OK for me!!!
Who don't like colours & don't know about how they are helping, then ..... ;-)

About the theme manager. It could be added anyway ;-) I would use even more colours ;-)

I like the bright contrast in fluorescent color just as I would have in my day planner as it allows easy spot recognition of my appointments just as in the real world of busy schedules. I don't see anything childish about a good useful program that is given for FREE! I will humbly download it, install it, and use it, as I did it's past versions posted here and thank you for a very nice and colorful GAOTD!

This people may be good coders, but defenitely should have rented someone who is an expert on colors ! This are colors for toddlers playtoys but defenitely not for a software's user interface that's not related with gaming or girlstuff or hippies ! Terrible, most annoying and disturbing colors that make the software look 'not serious'.
