Short details Free-form outlines organized by virtual file folders. This application does allow you to create GTD-style task lists using the folders, but power users will feel the lack of sorting and filtering options. 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.
