Personal Kanban automatically manages 3 permanent lists of things to do, using the Kanban method for organizing your work. This method is meant for software development and secondarily for other important formal tasks.
In the kanban method, each list is called "bucket" and has a maximum number of elements. In this kanban, the lists are:
- Tasks performed -- called the "Completed" list;
- Tasks to be performed -- called the "Todo" list;
- Potential tasks -- called the "Options" list.
- I had this scenario in mind when writing meetmint: 1) I am at a meeting and supposed to write the minutes. 2) I have my laptop with me and even without internet connectivity I can use meetmint, which I previously put on my harddisk. 3) If I know there is internet connectivity, I can also get the tool from a website. 4) If there is a video projector in the room, I will use it and others can not only see the notes I'm taking, but they also have a visual structure of the meeting (current topic, agenda, used time).
- Monica Personal CRM
- Monica is a free software web application to organize the interactions with your loved ones. We call it a PRM, or Personal Relationship Management. Think of it as a CRM (a popular tool used by sales teams in the corporate world) for your friends or family. Monica allows people to keep track of everything that's important about their friends and family. Like the activities done with them. When you last called someone. What you talked about. It will help you remember the name and the age of the kids. It can also remind you to call someone you haven't talked to in a while.
- Today: You can take notes with it. Rearrange them easily, up and down in a list, or up/down in the hierarchy. Link them to each other. Navigate across links with simple keypresses. Make deeply nested lists. Link lists to lists. Compose long paragraphs and attach them. Or do more complicated things if desired, by creating relationship types and using those. Import txt or export txt or html. It's better than the alternatives for some people, because the navigation takes fewer keystrokes, you don't have to read a manual (it's all on the screen, or so I like to think), you can have the same thing in as many places as you want, it is Free (some alternatives are, others are not), and it has immense future potential for becoming a better-structured, much more powerful and flexible wikipedia-like tool, if we work together. Vision: The idea is to have the most efficient personal knowledge organizer (now available in a usable text-based interface), then support mobile access, easy internal automation, and effective sharing and collaboration. Then, to combine efforts and learn as we go until we integrate humankind's knowledge over time. The key differentiators are that it is to be Free, and based on an object model (easily created on the fly as a side-effect of using the system), rather than on massive amounts of words. The knowledge is the same, even if the words can change. One can think of that as "using building blocks of knowledge, starting at an atomic level (i.e. numbers, relationships...), free and efficient." Or, taking the best experiences of online organizer tools and wikis, but more structured, efficient, Free, open, and collaborative; and allowing full individual or organizational control.
- Org is an Emacs mode for keeping notes, lists and doing project management with a fast and effective plain-text system. Org-mode is based on top of the Emacs outline-mode and provides a very usable outliner with powerful functionality.
- Italian web-based management system for time/money spent by resources, day by day. Reports "on flight","from... to..." (single day to many years). Single job can refer to customer order, inner or external project; every activity of the company.
- PyTodo is a simple program for managing todo lists.
- 'SandSurfer' is a Web-based Perl CGI time tracking application. It supports employee time sheet entry, auto clock in and auto clock out, gross wage calculations for each employee in a given time period, export of data to a file, billing rates per client per job.
- Stopwatch is a rather basic timer, with both a command line and graphical user interface (GUI). In addition to the usual start, stop, reset and clear (new) functions, Stopwatch implements a rather large number of user-named lap timers - 27 in the GUI mode, limited only by memory from the command line. GUI uses GTK+ libraries, and automatically detects and uses Hildon libraries when running on a Nokia 770 Gnu/Linux-based handheld.
- Taglog is designed for people who spend their day working at a computer. You can make notes about what you do as you go along, and associate them with specified projects. You can then produce a report of how your time was spent, broken down by project for booking purposes. You can view the previous entries by date or by project, enter the actions you intend to take, associate them with a project, and mark them as active or complete. Taglog's electronic workbook combines logging time to projects with a detailed diary of what you actually do. You can tag individual work elements by project to produce record of a specific project, even if your time is spread across a number of projects or by activity type (meeting, phone, program, etc.) to track time by activity.
