Good calendar-based task management software?

March 29, 2011 at 13:52:52
Specs: Windows 7
I am looking for software that will enable me to easily lay out daily tasks for my maintenance contractors.

Key features I need:

1) calendar-based and automatically moves to the present day (so that the user can sit in front of the computer and see the tasks that are to be completed that day)
2) ability to make tasks recurring at various intervals
3) ability to hyperlink to files on the computer
4) a check box associated with each task so that they may check the box when the task is complete
5) carry-over... if a task is not marked complete, it automatically carries over to the next day

That covers most of the needs. I've probably looked at hundreds of different software options online, and I still haven't found one that meets my needs.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You could try TaskMerlin at

It provides a calendar (with the current day on startup), recurring tasks, file hyperlinks, a Completed button (rather than a checkbox), and task carry-over (via action lists/filters).

Basecamp has calendar features to track your schedules and the events for certain days. You can assign tasks to a certain person in your team and you can tick/untick if the task is done or not.

You may also try Zoho-projects. It has a recurring task feature and you can create task via email. You can sync it to Microsoft documents for ease of use.

I think Yahoo calendar is the easiest of the web based calendars.

There's lots of task management software out there and it's quite confusing to which software package should you use. I personally think that the best software package must meet your needs to manage your projects and tasks and the project management software package that has meet our needs is Latitude.

It can create tasks and subtasks. Users can be notified of their tasks via email. If tasks are completed, you can set a status to it that it's been completed.
