#6 I didn't try this program but with most programs if you click 'Help' on the menubar and then choose 'About' on the dropdown list, it will usually show it's registered status. Hope this helps.

I need to correct myself. The UNC failure to backup occurred on Win7 x86 (running as a VM under x64) whereas it did work under x64 native. In both situations there is no network icon to fall back on.

The application has a nice and pleasing interface. As somebody mentioned above, connectivity is sorely lacking with, in essence, only an Outlook bidirectional interface.

I then attempted to resolve the portability issue using backup and failed miserably. It tried to backup to my NAS and specified the location using UNC, i.e. \\NASXX\dir\backup\... The program crashed while attempting to backup. I then tried to locate the backup folder using the application's dialog but Network isn't even available just local drives.

BTW this is a Win7 x64 installation.

I just about passed this up due to the Microsoft Outlook connection. But, since I do not use MS Outlook, I do not mind. It is not a bad looking organizer. Like the icon in the system tray. Easy to open and no loops to go through to get where you want. I have another organizer and I am forever clicking here and clicking there - nice, but a time waster. So far everything is working good with no problems. Downloaded, installed good. The only thing I'm not too sure about is whether its registered (GAOTD etc) nothing indicates it is except for the activation notice from GAOTD. This is minor. Will assume all is okay. It is nice looking and easy to navigate. Thanks GAOTD and OrgBusiness.

Without an ability to sync with Google calendar, to me its of very limited use.

A few notes:

Outlook should have been an afterthought if this was meant to be a consumer product. With Thunderbird, OpenOffice, and Google being as popular as they are.

As noted by others" This uses the Ribbon style interface. Those like myself that hate that will be turned off by that. Keep it in mind.


RE: Comment by oliviab
Unload would be used in terms of a program that closes to the taskbar.
EG
Close (to the taskbar) verses Unload (and shut down totally)
Not the most common phrasing but not unique either; more common in industry software than consumer stuff.

Is this like a "PIM" folks? Not sure the difference. If it is, would rather stay with Essential Pim I suppose.

I'm actively looking for an Outlook alternative, and hope the author will keep developing this product to compete with outlook. WIth that said, it is nowhere near ready.
Unfortunately, this program does not even come close to Outlooks funcionality. The writer should do more work on integration with google calendar, ical, mobile phones and others.

If I could Sync with cal's from different apps, it might be helpful. But if I have Outlook to import from, why wouldn't you just use Outlook? It is truly the best program out there, but it is too expensive. Now that they do not include Outlook with the stripped version of Office, the problem is worse.

As far as why there are only 7 comments to 200 thumbs down, consider that many messages arent posted, and that not everyone has to write a review if their concerns or comments are included elsewhere.I suppose there is also an anti-Microsoft element that will thumb it down solely because it only plays with MS Outlook.

I don't thumb down without trying it first, but if it cant be used for an obvious and necessary purpose (ie sync with smartphone), it is reasonable to give a thumbs down- perhaps without even trying it.

It truly amazes me how something can have over 200 "thumbs down" and only 7 comments. Do people actually USE it before they post the thumbs down? Probably not......TRY it first people...THEN make your decision.

If/when you start OrgScheduler without activation you get a nag screen timer before it starts.

Of Course the first thing I tried was to schedule an all-day event for today. I t shows the 'title' I gave to it, and the date is highlighted in the calendar, but there is no other evidence that it is an all day event; in other words, just looking at today, the time lines all all empty, same color, no real indication that that entire time has been blocked out already. Otherwise so far it looks very user friendly and useful. Thanks GOTD!

OrgScheduler is a nice, mature but somewhat uneven app when it comes to features -- by that I mean that some areas like printing have received a lot of attention, others like connectivity seem almost ignored, & I kept getting surprised by little things that had been left out... I forgot it was running in the taskbar & double-clicked the desktop shortcut, but rather than opening that program window, it threw a few errors & started a 2nd instance of the app -- an app should either run 2 (or more) instances, or refuse with a message that it's already running, or else (most common) bring up the window of the running app (like Windows Task Mgr.). Another example is clicking the Lock button, there's no Cancel or obvious way to get back to the main Window. That said, if you can do without the connectivity [i.e. don't want/need to easily transfer your data somewhere else &/or to whatever device], OrgScheduler is easy to learn/use, & I could see many home users being happy with it, printing schedules for the bulletin board or front of the fridge.

The OrgScheduler executable file is somewhat large at 18 MB, & it takes up ~130 MB of RAM just sitting there -- it's not the sort of lightweight app you might prefer for a netbook or less powerful notebook. FWIW it uses the Firebird database [firebirdsql.org]. Like many apps OrgScheduler uses a Microsoft file named: "Gdiplus.dll" -- you probably have several copies in various program folders & buried in Windows \ WinSxS \ -- so not to worry if you read the [IMHO too prominant] warnings in the included help file &/or readme.txt. The app itself takes up ~30 MB with 23 files, 5 folders, with installation & activation adding a recorded 100 registry entries in 7 keys. Note that activation is added to the HKEY Current User section of the registry, so activate for all user profiles (where you plan on using OrgScheduler) today.

If you use a smartphone or 1 of the new tablets you likely use an on-line organizer. And/or maybe you use Facebook, publishing your calendar there. In those cases you *might* use OrgScheduler as a supplement -- you don't want *everything* on your To-Do lists public after all. And if you're more the "stick the reminder for the doc's appointment on the fridge door" type, with OrgScheduler you might be all set.

I've been looking for an alternative to Outlook, but I still use a PDA with Windows Mobile so it won't work for me. I also looked at the program for a repair shop since we're starting a repair business. Too bad it is not more generic - work order, parts numbers, inventory and invoices. Could be a winner for $50 but not for our business. Thanks anyway.

It has a very similar feel as Outlook's reminder calendar which is great. Looks like a keeper.
I wish these readme.txt files would tell us where to look to confirm registration has been successful.
Does anyone know what to click on to confirm it's registered?

Actually a nice looking program that's easy to use. Those used to Word's ribbon style interface will feel right at home with this program

This is a nice scheduling program, it is fairly simplistic in it's use and has the ability to import your data from Outlook. Like Ashraf I think that the ability to sync with other platforms should be added.

The events list is easy to use, but it is limited in it's display capabilities, you can ctrl+click a date and an end date, but if you do one in the middle it simply keeps it as a from and to range. I think the ability to cherry pick a handful of dates would be almost more useful.

The printing feature is good but some flexibility to add logos etc. would be nice. For the most part those who use the likes of Outlook already may not find that this is truly essential as Outlook's own calendar is perfectly adequate for most users.

For those who need a little more however then this is probably worth a look.

Smooth rego, nice interface, easy operation, but two things
bother me. First, why, when you want to close the program and remove it from the taskbar, do they use the word "Unload" , instead of simpy
"Exit" or "Close". Weird, and makes me wonder what other weirdnesses are tucked away in there. Second, only syncing with Microsoft Outlook and not other obvious platforms is so retro as to be almost laughable and will make it useless to many people, including me. Thanks but no thanks.

For those of you who can't live without Personal Organizers, this is a good pick.
I would say its better than last month's Leader Task, due to the many awesome features especially the event recurrence setting, MUCH more customisable features and the integration of data with other major productivity suites.

The interface looks cheesy and taskbar icon is just sad.

Works on XP pro, SP3

The Good
* Straightforward and easy to use.
* Events can be fully customized, including start/end time, reminders, recurrence, categorized by labels, etc.
* E-mails (full e-mails, which include custom subject, body, and attachments) can be automatically set out to people when a reminder for an event is triggered.
* Scheduler can be viewed in different modes: Day view, work week view, whole week view, monthly view, yearly view, six months view, and three months view.
o Day view and work week view can show timestamps for two timezones: Users own timezone and another custom timezone.
* Scheduler can be set to show a vertical or horizontal timeline, depending on whatever the user prefers.
o Timeline time intervals can be customized for day view.
* Has an "Events List" which allows users to view the events they have scheduled for a particular day or range of days.
* Has a contacts manager.
* Can export data to excel, text, HTML, or XML files.
* Can import, export, and sync with Microsoft Outlook.
* Has powerful searching and filtering capabilities.
* Has powerful printing capabilities.
* Program data can be backed up/restored at will.
o Can be set to automatically backup data.
* Program can be password protected.

The Bad
* Only syncs with Microsoft Outlook; does not support others platforms like Google calendar, smartphones, or syncing with users over a network. (Other versions of the program support syncing over a network.)
* Program can be password protected, but the databases storing data are not encrypted.
* Needs a better way to view events for multiple days via the the "Events List" (currently you must manually highlight the days if you want to view the events for multiple days).
* No widget support.
