Short details Ajour is an easy-to-use personal information manager (PIM). Use it as a combined calendar, diary, organizer, and reminder. Keep track of dates, appointments, annual events like birthdays, todo items, and notes. Additionally, you can dial phone numbers stored in your data just by double-clicking them.

In the Ajour package you also get a program that starts when you log on/start your computer (which can also be turned off). It will show you whatever upcoming appointments and events you have in the following week as well as any "tagged" to-do items you have entered.
