GTD setup notes Contexts are awkwardly supported through Task Team User profiles (define and select contexts in addition to people). Weak GTD support because Daylite limits users to a single Category or Location, either of which can be used as the GTD Context. Supports custom saved views, but with limited filtering options. (For example, you cannot filter to see all tasks without a Category, so it is excruciatingly painful to set up a view that correctly shows you your Inbox.)
Data can be manipulated via an API 𐄂
Short details Easy-to-use interface allows filtering by groups, project, date ranges, as well as switching between daily, weekly and monthly views. Creation or editing of projects, tasks, and messages can be made with a single email. Now with free apps for iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile, BlackBerry Bold, and WebOS. Complete CRM software for Mac with integrated and communal contacts, calendars, email, and task/project/sales management. Accessible from iPhone for good mobile integration.

Extensions include email, billing, accounting, retail/inventory connections, etc. Daylite also llows for task delegation to anyone accessing the same Daylite database.
