TaskAngel Online | To-do List for Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android
Get More Done In Half The Time
TaskAngel Online is a new version of TaskAngel To-do List. It's a brand new design, completely rewritten to be your constant companion on whatever devices you have to hand.
TaskAngel Online has its own global database to keep your tasks and notes safe and secure, and to keep all your devices up to date. Previous versions of TaskAngel have all relied on services like Toodledo or iCloud to act as storage hubs. But TaskAngel Online is not dependent on those services.

How Can It Help Me?
At work, are you overloaded? Do you sit at home in the evenings working on stuff you should have done during the day? Do you feel that you aren't really getting anywhere?
At home, are you rushed off your feet, failing to get everything done before the afternoon school run? Do your friends all seem to have time for fun, when you don't?
Are your emails a nightmare, full of people asking you to do things you haven't got time for? And telling you things you didn't want to know?
You need a time management system. These systems give you new ways of working. They make you spend your time on things that are really going to move things forward. They stop you wasting your time on things that ultimately don't matter.
Time management systems are often published as books, videos and blog posts. To get you started, have a look at these excellent systems:
Each of these systems teaches you how to construct and manage your to-do list. TaskAngel is a wonderful tool to build your to-do list and manage it effectively to save yourself time and get more done. Later in this post I'll explain the key features that make it the perfect companion to a time management system.
Give it a try. Feel the burden lift from your shoulders. Make the stress go away.

Managing Your To-Do List
Every item on your to-do list is a Task. You can give each task a number of properties to help organise your list:
Title - This is a short sentence that tells you what to do. For example 'Decide where to go on holiday'.
Completed - check this when you have done the task. There is a setting you can use to hide completed tasks.
Start Date - When do you need to start this task. You can hide tasks that will start in the future, to keep today's task list tidy
Due Date - Have you promised to do this task by a specific date? If so, that's the due date.
Repeat - Some tasks have to be done every week, or every month, or whatever. Set the repeat pattern, and then when you complete this task a new one is created with new start and due dates.
Priority - Top, High, Medium, Low and Negative. The time management systems often make special use of priority, and TaskAngel supports this beautifully. There is a setting to hide negative priority tasks.
Star - In the task list, every task has a star. Tap on the star to light it up. This helps you decide what your next action will be.
Goal - You can make sure every task is necessary and relevant by assigning goals to them. Then you can filter your task list to work on all the tasks assigned to a goal. Specify all the goals that are important to you in your life, and make sure you have tasks assigned to them. Then you can achieve your goals.
Folder - Organise your tasks and notes into folders, to make it easier to work on them. Give each of your projects a folder.
Hashtags - Put hashtags into the titles of tasks and notes. Then you can use search to list the tasks that have that hashtag. For example, when a customer asks me for help with an issue, I tag the resulting task with #issue and the customer's name, like #jamie. If you are using the Getting Things Done system, you can give your tasks contexts like @home or @work using this technique.
Sorting and Grouping
To help even more with managing your task list, you can split it into groups using one of the task properties. For example I like to group by priority. Then I get a list of all top priority tasks, followed by a list of high priority tasks, and so on.
Within these groups, you can apply up to three levels or sorting. For example sort by start date then by due date then by title.
You might have hundreds of tasks and notes, and that can make managing your task list a nightmare. When you are working on your tasks, you want the list to be much shorter. You can achieve this by using filters.
TaskAngel has a filter menu that pops up when you tap the menu button. You can filter on any of your task properties, for example:
Start within a week
Every task, goal and folder can have a note to provide more details about it. The notes might just be simple text, but you can also use Markdown codes to make a richer layout - bold, italic, headings, web links, and so on.
You can also create stand-alone notes, and organise them into folders. This gives you a simple alternative to apps like Evernote and Bear.
