Long Description:
ThingsToDo, Version 1.3, is a Personal Information Manager for Windows
programmed in Visual Basic 2.0. ThingsToDo allows you quickly to collect
and organize notes about meetings, to-dos, calls, etc. It takes only
moments to install and master, yet gives you great power in searching,
organizing and displaying your notes. It draws on the familiar Windows
interface. Unlike many new Windows applications, however, it makes
minimal demands on your system's memory and storage capacity. It is
ideal for notebook computers with limited storage capacity. ThingsToDo
is distributed as shareware with a registration fee of $35.00.

The following are some of the key features of ThingsToDo:
1. Items of all types, including information about meetings, projects,
people, and tasks, are kept in a single database. This allows you to
mix types of information on reports, to access any type quickly, and
to scan across all types for those which have a particular word or
phrase, or those which are scheduled for a particular week or day.

2. You are able to enter and retrieve items which contain a minimum of
information. All you really have to enter is a brief summary. You
are not required to enter dates, times, priorities, etc., for various
tasks but may use these fields if desired.

3. For each item, you can enter an associated note which can be as much
as 15 pages in length. You may elect, on an item-by-item basis to
print associated notes when an item appears on a particular report.

4. Key word searches are applied not only to a summary that has been
entered for an item, but also to any text which has been entered in
associated notes.

5. Notes for a particular item are stored in a separate file in an ASCII
format. You can easily pull the note into the word processor or text
editor of your choice, massage it, and print it.

6. A set of memorable Hot Keys have been defined to allow you quick access
to the majority of the features of ThingsToDo.

7. ThingsToDo helps you as much as it possibly can on the entry of dates
and times, minimizing the need to worry about punctuation.

8. You are able quickly to mark an item as completed and to purge
completed items.

9. Tasks assigned to a particular day but have not been completed are
automatically displayed. You will not lose track of them merely because
the date has passed.
