Wanted (proper) ToDo application

I made a sketch of the information system that I would like to install to run my next project with. Actually it is not a project, it is more a start-up of a service for providing a portfolio of Notes/Domino applications.

Well here is the sketch:

Right now I am looking for a proper ToDo application for managing tasks (multiple simultaneous projects, multiple project members).

  • Do you have any suggestion?

    eProductivity if your focus is task orientation. Mindplan if it is information store (both run on Notes)

      When I talk about task management it is more related to development projects, release management (which features will be planned for what release).

      I assume eProductivity is more for personal productivity? (or for a common mailbox)

      For mindmapping I just use FreeMind for simple maps:


      There are licenses for more mature products in this area…

    Not sure if you went to Lotusphere. There was a presentation give by the Lotus PIM architect that included a sidebar and many task management enhancements. He presented similar at Lotusphere 09. The code is ready but he can’t put it in the point release code stream, so it looks like we have to wait until R9

      that is too bad because there is so much to win to have real personal productivity functions in the PIM databases.

    If you don’t need to run it on Domino, I can recommend Redmine (http://www.redmine.org/)

    It’s pretty easy to set up and configure, can easily authenticate with your Domino LDAP, and has a lot of plugins to tune it to your needs. It does however needs it’s own server (VMWare/XenServer is fine)

      Thanks, Björn. I think it would be good to be able to show what capabilities Notes/Domino has so I prefer a Domino based ‘advanced’ ToDo database I guess…

    The German company Haus Weilgut (our partner company) has announced a todo manager at Lotusphere. They are currently preparing the beta test.
    There is some information on the web at: http://www.weilgut.com/weilgut2_en.nsf/id/pa_weilgut_todo_manager

    They will have a free version of the todo manager and some commercial optional add-ons like project management with MindPlan and the modules of their CRM system.
