I'm looking for a note taking and organizer/task management application.
What I'm using it for
I'm a freelance web developer and I have many projects at any given time, and each project has different tasks. Some of these tasks are important and need to be done right away. Some are less important and can wait a while. I'm looking for something to organize the data.
- Different sections for each project, with the ability to quickly switch between them.
- Quickly jot down notes and general information.
- Ability to store data for each project securely, such as login information, etc.
- Ability to organize tasks and sort by different fields such as priority, urgency, etc.
- Keep track of completed tasks.
- Not crucial, but it would be nice to have some kind of indicator if a task is coming close to a deadline.
- Absolutely has to run in a Linux environment if a desktop application. Web-based is preferable though.
- I don't need any kind of collaboration, this is for my own personal use.
What I've tried
I liked the directory structure it has, but it's also very difficult to organize tasks by priority. It's phenomenal for general note taking in a class environment though.
This is what I'm using right now. It's nice because I can keep important notes in front of me so that I don't forget about them, but once you have too many notes it becomes a hassle to organize them.
As much as it pains me to say this, Microsoft did a great job on this one. It doesn't work on Linux. When running it through Wine, it doesn't seem to work for me.
Basically, nothing I've found has allowed me to sort things by priority, keep notes, and mark tasks as complete.
I would prefer some FOSS, but I'm definitely willing to pay for something that works well.
I don't want to spend more than $100 (I will if it's something amazing though), and I absolutely will not do something subscription based.
