GTD setup notes Contexts are awkwardly supported through Task Team User profiles (define and select contexts in addition to people).
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. Nirvana has evolved into an excellent personal GTD and GTD solution, worth looking at.

Particularly nice is its ability to pause or schedule projects (and all tasks within them) and designate project steps as sequential or simultaneous. You can also star tasks to create an instant "must do today" list as taught in TRO Online training.
