Online gadget brings Zen order to scheduling

Product: Todoist

Techies know the Zen of Todoist; now it's time for payments professionals to catch on. Todoist is a free, Web-based task organizer you can install on an iGoogle or Netvibes start page. It's like your own virtual Buddha, patiently reminding you about important meetings and appointments, or the start of your kid's peewee soccer game.

Created by Amir Salihefendic, a 22-year-old computer science major in Denmark, Todoist features an intuitive interface. It has a built-in calendar where you can assign project due dates and receive an overview of the tasks to accomplish each day.

Integrated with AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML), Todoist deploys quickly to accommodate spur-of-the-moment inspirations.

A hierarchy component allows you to create subitems for projects to increase order and organization, and then collapse those subitems when necessary to decrease clutter.

Todoist can page you when an important conference call is about to begin, for instance, and by a variety of methods, including cell phone, e-mail, or even through instant messaging on the social networking site Twitter.

The process of creating projects and assigning action items is flexible and customizable. You can bold, underline and highlight text.

You can indent items within to-do lists and move them up or down the list hierarchy. Every item in Todoist can be added to a list with only a title and date. You can even add links and due dates.

Additionally, Todoist recognizes a variety of date formats. It understands that "two weeks from today" (assuming today is Nov. 12, 2007) is the same as "11/26/2007." Similarly, Todoist translates "+2" to mean a project is due in two days.

Intuitive like a haiku, Todoist offers freedom of expression in the mundane world of online to-do list applications.
