Swift To-Do List Accounts, Organizations and Subscription Plans

If you want to use use any of the online features (Secure Sync, mobile apps, team collaboration) you need to create your own Swift To-Do List Account. You can do so directly in Swift To-Do List for Windows when you sync your tasks for the first time.

We are now also introducing “Organizations” into Swift To-Do List -

To use Swift To-Do List in a team, you can now create an organization inside your Swift To-Do List Account. Each organization can have unlimited number of databases and up to 50 members. Organizations allow you to take advantage of multi-user plans, and they also allow you appoint admins and invite only specific people to databases owned by the organization.

Organizations come with 30-day trial. Then you need to purchase a valid multi-user plan for each Organization. We offer Mini plan for up to 5 users ($495/year), Small plan for up to 10 users ($995/year), Medium plan for up to 25 users ($2495/year) and a Business plan for up to 50 users ($4995/year).

Members of the organizations can also create their own personal private databases inside their Swift To-Do List Accounts.

If you want to use Swift To-Do List as a single user, then you also get a 30-day trial for the new online features. You then need to purchase a Personal plan. If you already own Swift To-Do List, you will automatically get a discount on your plan.

If you have been already using the beta sync feature, then we’ve created an organization inside your Swift To-Do List Account for you automatically. We’ve also moved all databases with more than 1 user into the organization for you, and made you an “administrator” and “owner” of the organization.

The Secure Sync background story

The Secure Sync features were in development for several years. All this time, we’ve been intensively working on them. And now, they are finally finished! It is the main reason we are introducing the new Swift To-Do List subscriptions.

During the public Beta period, the Secure Sync features were free. However, there are ongoing costs associated with running, maintaining and supporting the Secure Sync service, its infrastructure and the ecosystem of apps (Windows, Android, iOS, web), so subscription payments are necessary.

However, there’s a silver lining. Besides the new functionality, the switch to subscriptions comes with additional benefits to you – for example, we can now ship new features immediately, and do not have to bundle them into “major upgrade” packages like we did previously with Swift To-Do List 7, 8 and 9, or with the Ultimate edition.

Questions and Answers

Q: What if I am not interested in the online, mobile and team features?
A: First of all, all these features are optional. And even if you are not interested in any of the online features, you can still purchase Swift To-Do List for Windows! Just subscribe for 1 year, and even if you do not renew your subscription, you can keep using it forever (although without updates). Or, if you already own it, just keep using it.

Q: So, how can I use Swift To-Do List in a team?
A: If you were using Swift To-Do List in a team during the sync public beta, we’ve automatically created an organization for you. Feel free to rename it using the Manage Sync button in Swift To-Do List for Windows. If you are a new user, see above in the “Swift To-Do List Accounts, Organizations and Subscription Plans” section.

Q: How about license codes?
A: When you purchase or renew a subscription, you will also receive a license code for your Swift To-Do List for Windows. You can enter it using menu Help – Enter License Code. You should do so even if you’ve already purchased Swift To-Do List in the past or renewed your subscription. In the future, the license codes will be downloaded automatically for you.

If you have purchased a multi-user plan, you should email the license code to each member of your organization.

Q: How can I move a database from one organization to another one, or from my personal Swift To-Do List Account into an Organization?
A: Currently, you have two options. The first option is to email contact our support at support@dextronet.com – we can do this for you.

The second option is to un-sync the database using menu Sync – Un-Sync, then sync it again with the desired new “owner” organization. You then need to invite everyone into the database again. Everyone else then needs to create a new local empty database file using menu New – Empty Database, and sync it with the new cloud Organization’s database that you’ve invited them into.

Q: How can I upgrade to a higher plan?
A: Use menu Sync – Manage Sync. Then click the “Upgrade to higher plan” or “Upgrade to multi-user plan” link on the top-right of the “Manage Sync” window.

Q: How can I downgrade to a lower plan?
A: Simply let your plan expire, then purchase a lower plan. To cancel auto-renewal of your plan, use menu Sync – Manage Sync, then click “Cancel auto-renewal”.

Q: When I am a member or an admin of an organization, can I also have my own personal databases?
A: Yes. When you are a member of an organization, you can have your personal databases directly inside your Swift To-Do List Account that are completely separate from the organization. When syncing a database, make sure that you select “You” as the owner in the Secure Sync Wizard.

This also means that when you have a multi-user plan, or are a member in an organization, you do not need a Personal plan if you want to use Swift To-Do List for your personal tasks as well.

Q: How do I know when to renew the subscription?
A: If you have auto-renewal enabled, you don’t have to worry about it at all – it will auto-renew for you automatically, unless you cancel the auto-renewal. If you do not have auto-renewal enabled, then you can click the Manage Sync button in the Sync tab to see how many days are left in your subscription. During the last 14 days, Swift To-Do List for Windows will also display the days left on the top-right part of its window.

Q: What’s the pricing?
A: Please see our Secure Software Store.
