    Cant wait till its done; particularly the Delete items folder so I can pull back my accidental deletes.

    I like that idea Randall. That would be useful to me too, Chris.

    My calendar does sometimes get quite cluttered with tasks so that I have to turn them off to see the events clearly. Good point Metta.

    I have been using Doogie since 2011. I use it every day and the following are some of the things I use it for:

    • Garden journal - I try and record the weather and what's growing in the journal section as regularly as possible.
    • Orchard planning and other projects (I use the financial, documents & planner sections for this to record planting information, spreadsheets cost & plan out the work)
    • Writer's jottings - I jot down things I think of, save images & sayings I like, mostly in the documents section. I also keep a journal (separate from the gardening one). I also use the noteboard to make storyboards. I like that I can just write anything down in any old order and link things together at a later date.
    • Emails - keeps them all in one place that I can download onto a stick and take wherever I go rather than having to hump a computer around.
    • Favourite Browser - (though I do used Chrome as well.) Doogie is good for new sites I haven't used before & places where good browser security is useful like Facebook. It also allows me to bookmark sites and add notes in the bookmark. These can then be linked to a document or a spreadsheet so I know where information came from. (This is great for looking up citations or knowing where to place an order at a later date.)
    • Financial Section: I use it to make the annual budget and then have monthly sections to balance the books against statements & receipts. I also use it for special projects (see Orchard planning).
    • Vault (This is a wonder.) I can keep all my stuff I need to remember in one place. Not only passwords etc. but also when I bought the lawnmower, when it was serviced. Its make and model references etc. All the stuff that floats straight out of my head the day after I have bought something. And it is all password protected and encrypted and not in the cloud.

    The beauty is that it keeps all your thoughts and daily admin. all in one place. The linking means you don't have to have an organised mind till you are ready. The collection is password protected, encrypted & transportable on a memory stick. This means your intellectual property is not on a strange server in the cloud where you have no control over it.

    Debate is a good thing. Out of healthy debate good things come. I like that Doogie is not like other PIMs so I decide what a task and an event is and how they are used in my personal and business life.

    You didn't say why you find this difficult, other than you like the names to be as you have seen in other PIMs. Let us know and maybe the Community can come up with a way to sort things for you, before we ask Chris to flex his coding muscles.

    Best wishes

    My reason for posting was to show how you might use what is already there to suit your needs not to stop you from offering suggestions. I'm just a user myself and wanted to be helpful.
