Task Management Software

"This software rocks golden. Have been looking for this thingy a long time now. My search is over."

" Although I use Microsoft Outlook I found that the task tracking in your software has a better view and layout than Outlook. I like the way that icons can be used for different categories, and the different colours that are used in the main task list make it easier to get an overall picture of outstanding issues."

"I have a purchased copy of VIP Team To Do List. Has to be one of the best products I have ever purchased. Well worth it."

Freelancers: Planning appointments and to-do's when working at home

reminder to mobile. Main view of reminder to mobile.

For most people (like freelancers or women who have kids) working at home is more suitable than working in the office. The main advantage of such work is that you can decide which time is more suitable for you to work and do your work when you want. In spite of this, work at home also has disadvantages, as in the office you can concentrate on your work, while at home there is always some housework and many other interruptions which don't allow you to concentrate on your work quite enough. So, the main problem of freelancers is in separating work life from personal life. Here are several tips that can help freelancers to become more organized:

  1. Don't mix business tasks with personal tasks. Don't plan professional and personal appointments for the same time. If you still have some personal and professional tasks that must be accomplished during the same day, time periods between them must be long enough.
  2. Use one calendar for your personal and professional tasks. If you write down your tasks and use desk calendar, you can color your personal tasks in one color and your professional tasks in another color to separate ones from others. If you use computer for planning your tasks, you can use software which has calendar (for example: VIP Task Manager Professional edition).
  3. Divide your tasks to appointments and to-do's. Keep your appointments only in calendar and the rest of your tasks in your to-do list. Also, if you use software, it is very suitable to receive reminders about the tasks, which must be completed first. So, you will never forget about some important tasks or appointments.

Try to use these tips and VIP Task Manager Professional Edition (that was mentioned above) and you will see the result in a short period of time. VIP Task Manager Pro allows users to create a task list in which you can store all your to-do's, set priorities and status on each task, set filters and sort tasks by date, status and priority. Also VIP Task Manager Pro has calendar view. In calendar, you can plan your tasks for weeks, months and even for years. You can set a reminder and receive notifications of tasks which should be completed first of all. In VIP Task Manager you can create categories for personal and professional tasks and sub-categories (to divide appointments and to-do's). You can set filter on each category and see on your task list only tasks of this category. The program can be used by multiple users, so, you can assign tasks to other persons, and share the database simultaneously if you work with them in a LAN.
