Reminder needed

Post by eil » 08 Nov 2016 10:53

to find some reminder is not a big deal, but i actually need one with extra functions. main desired features:
- the more options of reminder settings/repeat/snooze -the better
- desirably small interface and memory consumption(meant grand children of Outlook are out from the start)
- ability to show reminds when specific program is started or file opened
- ..and of course free soft is more welcome

examples where i need reminds:
- of some important date, meeting, concert;
- of an email i need to do something about;
- about edits i needed to do over file i opened right now;
- about actions i needed to do as i opened this program(like visit web site, do specific search)
- ..and of course all these need to be reminded not only once, but with flexible before-head and periodicity.

do you people know any?

You need to pay $28.99 USD a year to get all the features, but I use Todoist - available on web/mobile/desktop

https://en.todoist.com/comparePlans

I switched from Remember the Milk around 18 months or so ago

Cheers,
Michael

And Todoist does that?

@mkolaski thanks for variant, but as highend mentioned both can't check file\program access. plus their cloud-based orientation is more of minus for me.

No, but it does all the other items noted under `examples` above.

LastActivityView (http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/computer_a ... _view.html) looks like it might provide that funcationality

ToDoList (http://abstractspoon.weebly.com/) isn't a bad offline task manager

I've most of the other task list type apps - RTM, Nozbe etc etc - logging what apps run on your pc isn't a standard `task list` type function - it'd be akin to using Photoshop as your text editor or Directory Opus as your file manager :biggrin:

What he needs is a todo / reminder software can be controlled via a command line tool (add event, remove one, etc.).
In that case he would just need scripted custom file associations that trigger the command line tool if a specific .exe is
executed, a file (type) opened (at least if everything is done via XY!), etc. Everything else will get... messy...
