Tasks project features a dynamic hierarchical view of your tasks, scheduling due dates, and associating URLs with and uploading and attaching files to tasks.

You have numerous tasks, projects with sub-tasks, related notes and files, billable tasks, and ideas that you want to publish to your blog. You need to access on various computers, PDA's, or web-enabled phones from anywhere. Tasks is your solution.

Recurring tasks and task templating features save you time by eliminating manual duplication. Task templates increase the accuracy and speed of repeated tasks and projects by providing predefined tasks and sub-tasks at the click of a button.

You may be on a sales call, in the grocery store, or at a friend's house, but if you have internet access from a computer, PDA or web phone, you can reach Tasks. Tasks can also reach out to you through the optional daily email reminders. Now it's impossible to forget what needs to be done!

With hierarchical organization, there is no need to create and manage categories; tasks grow organically. Create high-level tasks and fill out detailed sub-tasks as needed. Use visual prioritization and magic sorting to identify urgent tasks.

Here are some key features of "Tasks":
