    Hello

    I just stumbled across TaskFabric and it's cut-down version "Organize: Pro".

    Have any of you good people tried it?

    I have only just installed it.

    What caught my eye about TaskFabric is that it allows you to view the same data in a number of different ways. (e.g. Agile/Kanban, Mind Maps and Visual Planning, WBS (Work Breakdown Structure).

    On paper it seems very powerful, with for example:
    - Basic task management
    - Projects with multiple sub-levels
    - Project Management
    - Contexts (and the ability to colour-code them)
    - Review by Urgent/Important State (Eisenhower Matrix)
    - Mindmap view of tasks
    - Ability to share projects

    Background
    In particular I personally want an application to have:

    A) Simple lists of task (e.g. by Context) whose sort orders I can organise
    AND
    B) Hierarchical views of the same data to see what parts of my life are doing what
    AND
    C) An Urgency/Importance matrix view so that I can quickly see what needs doing more urgently that is also important, and when I have more time on my hands to get on with the more important stuff.

    Cheers

    PS Fwiw, I have just started using paper lists again to improve my use of lists habits.

    The spec of TaskFabric looks extremely promising to me.

    However, I can't find any user forum. Also I have emailed them about a couple of things and no reply yet. The interface is slightly odd on a PC (small text, too widely spaced boxes) and the strong suspicion is that it has primarily been written for the Mac interface. I don't want to do too much more testing until I get a bit more re-assurance.

    But the core idea of starting with GTD thinking but also having multiple TYPES of view of the same data is a great idea.
