Short details Achieve Planner is a practical Windows time management software system that helps you get organized, get focused and get more done in less time. Lets you capture, organize and manage all your projects and tasks in one central place. Achieve Planner also allows you to align your time, effort and energy with your highest priorities so you can focus on what really matters most, without worrying about missing an important deadline.

Achieve Planner also lets you import all your existing data from Outlook and keep it in sync.
Priacta Coach's Review
Attractive and easy to use, Get It Done is a nice blend of utility and simplicity. The "intended" use is obvious while still allowing customizing to suit personal preferences.

Get It Done's best features include drag-and-drop processing and a compact--but useful--task line. You can set tags, due date, project, etc. all from the compact view. Email can convert to tasks, retaining attachments.

Mobile apps exist for iPhone, iPad, Android, Web, Windows 8, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry. Evernote integration is as simple as checking an option.

Get It Done allows you to assign tasks simply by dragging and dropping. It notifies you when someone assigns you a task, and when the task is complete. Also, Get It Done does not allow discussion or group projects.

Overall, Get It Done is good for people who want a clear, easily navigated task list without sacrificing good productivity.
