Re: zim task list features


Hi Ural

I've used Zim for a few years now, primarily as a knowledge base.  Using
different notebooks for my different interests.  I can't speak highly
enough of Zim!  But as a to do list, Ive used it at a basic level, more
like a check list for procedures.  My core task tracking tool for business
and personal use is Remember the Milk: cross platform, fast sync, extremely
flexible, add task by web app, iOS, android..., even by email.  Collaborate
on tasks.  Has sub-tasks... I only scratch the surface of its feature
list.  I won't go on as this list is for Zim!!
