Time is one of the most important personal resources. If carefully managed, you are surely on the right path to success. This can be done in various ways, but specialized computer applications make it easier and less time-consuming. MyInfo Standard is one of them and gives you the possibility to schedule events and manage tasks, so that your memory can be used for more important things.
Text based task management options
Running the application brings up the user interface, which is equipped with all available features without the need to open more windows. Most of the workspace put at your disposal represents a text editor where you can write down all task related details and enhance it using basic tools.
Images and attachments can also be included so that no info is left aside. One of the two available side panels is home to all entries you create, displayed in a tree list, with the possibility to filter by several criteria or view a calendar with marked events.
The other side panel lets you modify attributes. Date specific details are set and viewed, as well as technical details such as completion percentage, priority or sensitivity.
Add reminders to each task
Entries can easily be managed from the first panel mentioned above. You are able to create parent and child directories and have them placed in a desired order by dragging them around.
Additionally, a short comment can be included to get a brief description of the task without having to bring up the whole content. An integrated function also allows you to set reminders for each task so that you never miss an appointment or be informed of a due date.
However, there are a few flaws in the design. Having to work with an abundance of entries gets rather difficult unless reminders are set. The lack of a timelilne view makes identification hard, with apparently no possibility to have them filtered by creation date nor have it displayed next to the name.
To sum it up, MyInfo Standard is a handy application you can use to better manage activities and keep track of tasks. It's not the best of its kind, but it's easy enough to use and gets you up and running from the first few minutes spent accommodating.
