Hi folks,

In my quest for the perfect outliner (I know we’ve all been there!) the last half of 2012 saw me downloading quite a few applications and giving them a try.

I was examining them for things like Calendar View, Customizable Columns, Web Clipping, Task Recurrence etc. During this, I took copious notes and captured them all in a spreadsheet.

Well, I thought that the research that I did might be helpful to others, so I put together an article covering off some of the key points of each piece of outliner software, including trial periods, price and what they can do.

You can find the article here: http://paulmaplesden.hubpages.com/hub/Compare-Outliner-Tools-and-Task-Productivity-Software-for-Windows

I hope you find it useful and am grateful for your thoughts.

I forgot to mention, if you spot any errors in the article as regards functionality etc (I am far from infallible!) please let me know and I will happily amend.

Paul, first of all, welcome to the forum; I think you already made your mark by singlehandedly providing such a resource :-)

I hope to go through the article in detail during the week-end.

Thanks for the kind words! I’ve actually bbeen lurking here for ages (I’m a productivity geek!) but decided to break cover…

Paul, one first question after reading your article: why do you consider “project recurrence” an important feature of an outliner for task management? I would imagine that as long as it supports multi-level outlines and recurring tasks, one could use recurrence or duplication of a composite task to manage complex activities that need to be repeated. I’m curious as to the kind of _project_ one would want to repeat regularly. A festival, perhaps, or something simolarly complex?
