The Best To-Do List Software for Windows
Swift To-Do List software comes in 3 different editions:
The Home edition is very basic. It is suited for home/hobby use, and lacks many advanced features (such as subtasks).
The Professional edition is well suited for busy professionals.
The Ultimate edition has all the features and allows for extra customization. If you are looking for the the best to-do list software for Windows, Ultimate is for you.
The Professional edition has all the features the Home edition has, and some significant additional features:
Just the subtasks alone are enough of a reason to go for Professional or Ultimate.
By breaking complex tasks into smaller subtasks, you can reduce procrastination and make your work more enjoyable. The big, intimidating tasks will suddenly seem like small cute puppies that you can easily handle. It will be much easier to focus, as the specific next action step will be always right in front of you. This will dramatically boost your productivity.
The ability to show/hide fields is remarkable: You can decide which fields you want to use, and which to completely hide. The whole interface always adjusts based on which fields you want to use. Swift To-Do List Professional is extremely flexible, and it can be as complex or as simple as you need it to be at that particular time. This is a unique, innovative concept.
This is how the Add/Edit Task dialog *could* look like if you enable all fields:
You can also make it look like this - it's completely up to you:
By enabling and disabling fields, you can completely customize the program to suit your needs. Use any imaginable combination/setup. And, you can change your mind anytime. The Professional edition is incredibly flexible:
If you learn to use the calendar panel, you will be able to quickly get a complete overview of important deadlines, meetings or appointments. This will help you to stay on top of things, eliminate stress, and give you the much needed room to focus. Nothing urgent will suddenly surprise you.
You can simply right-click any task, select Start time tracking, and Swift To-Do List will display a small floating window that will be counting the time elapsed. You can pause or stop the time tracking. The time elapsed is automatically added to the Time Spent property of the task.
You can customize the time tracking window (make it always on top, change its theme, etc).
The Time Tracker can also work in a countdown mode. This is especially useful when you are struggling with procrastination: You can now simply tell yourself "I will work just 10 minutes on this task", and start counting! This will get you going better than 5 cups of coffee ever could!
With the Hide Until field, you can hide tasks for later.
Keep your to-do lists short and sweet: Useful, fresh, clean, relevant and up-to-date.
It's like a "mega-snooze" for your tasks. With Hide Until, you can hide a task for days, weeks, months or years. When the "Hide Until" date arrives, the task will simply appear on your list again.
The top reason people abandon their to-do lists is that the lists become too long, cluttered and overwhelming. By using the Hide Until field, you can keep your lists short - and fun!
The Ultimate edition has all the features available in Professional, and these extra:
Enjoy 100 extra tree icons available exclusively in the Ultimate edition. This brings the total number of icons available in the Ultimate edition to 244. In another words, there are 70% more icons in the Ultimate edition!
Tasks that have too long task name to fit into one line are displayed on two lines in the Ultimate edition. This gives you more information about the tasks without the need to resize the Task Name column.
Swift To-Do List supports a lot of different fields. Some of them might not be relevant to you - and that's OK, because you can choose which fields you want to use.
However, by renaming a field, you can re-purpose it. For example, if you don't use the Context or Type field, you can rename it to something else and use it for that instead. You could rename it to Supervisor, or Client, or Location, or anything else that you want/need.
Likewise, if you don't need the Due Date or Start Date field, again, you can rename them to something else - for example, Shipment Date or Delivery Date or Last Contacted Date. Again - anything you need.
The change will fully reflect in all parts of the software, including export and printouts. This is the ultimate customization.
If you use Outlook, you can save enormous amounts of time with the Swift To-Do List Outlook Add-In that's part of the Ultimate edition.
Create tasks from emails with just 1 click.
(Even without Outlook, you can Drag and Drop email messages into Swift To-Do List to create tasks from them. Most email clients are supported.)
The Ultimate edition includes a spellchecker that you can use for your notes and memos. It allows you to go through all misspelled words and offer you suggestions. Or, you can enable automatic mode that underlines any misspelled words or grammatical errors. If you right-click such a word, you can choose one of the suggestions or to ignore it. It works very similarly to Microsoft Word.
In the Ultimate edition, you can create structured multi-level numbered lists very easily, with just a click of a single button in the notes toolbar.
You can easily get any of your to-do lists numbered, so the task names are prefixed with a number. This gives you a better feel for how many tasks are in your to-do lists.
The numbering also supports subtasks. For example, so if a task is numbered as "1", it's first subtask will be numbered as "1.1"
We will keep adding other exclusive premium features into the Ultimate edition. If you purchase the Ultimate edition, will get these as free upgrades.
All 3 editions share the same installation .exe file, so there is just a single download for all three editions. The trial is fully-functional.
When you are in the free 30-day trial period, the Professional edition is trialled by default. If you want to try other edition, use menu Help - Trial Edition to switch it during the trial.
