Task TemplatesHave a repetative task? Create a template for it! The template can be an entire task hierarchy and you can even create templates from existing tasks.
Peer-to-peer collaborationTeam members communicate directly with each other. You can assign tasks to anyone in your group, making this a great way to manage the day to day details that are so crucial to a business’ success.
Cross-platform collaborationUsers on different platforms can work together seamlessly. Even the server part of Tasks Pro™ works great on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
Centralized dataYour data is stored in a MySQL database on the server. You can easily back up the tasks for all of your users from one place.
Manage your work & responsibilitiesThere’s no need for a separate to-do list manager for tasks only you need to know about. Just click the ‘Private’ check box for any task, and nobody else will ever see that you need to buy milk on the way home!
Daily e-mail remindersEach user can receive a daily e-mail reminders of their overdue, upcoming and high-priority tasks.
RSS feeds of your tasksSubscribe to the RSS feed for your tasks or your group(s)’s tasks and keep up with what your group members are working on.
FavoritesMark a task as a Favorite to always have quick access to it from the Favorites list. It’s a great way to quickly get to a task that might otherwise be buried several levels deep in the hierarchy.
Full localization supportTasks Pro™ is fully localized. As they become available, new language packs will be available for download from the Support page.
Auto-check for updatesTasks Pro™ now has an option to check for updated releases every 7 days. You can choose to have it check for full releases and for pre-release versions as well.
Hierarchical organization of tasksThe heart of Tasks Pro™ is the hierarchical task structure. Tasks and notes are organized and categorized through these relationships. Put your high-level projects at the top and fill out the details as you go.
Create tasks from e-mailsTell Tasks Pro™ to check a mailbox and Tasks Pro™ will create tasks from any e-mails sent to that mailbox. You can even set the task owner, priority, date due, etc.
Powerful work group controlsTasks Pro™ allows you to set up unlimited groups and freely assign users to them. Access to task information can also be limited across groups. Users in the sales department, for example, can be kept away from information intended for the engineering team, but you can see and manage it all. Individual users can be assigned to multiple groups, and each user’s access level to the data (view, edit, create) can be individually customized.
Unofficial Support for PostgreSQL and MS SQL ServerTasks Pro™ 1.6 adds unofficial support for both the PostgreSQL and Microsoft SQL Server databases.
File AttachmentsUpload and attach files to tasks and notes. Tasks Pro™ works as a central storage spot for your files so you can access them from anywhere.
Intelligent e-mail notificationsWhen a task is assigned, an e-mail notification is sent to the new owner with both a link to the task and the details right in the email itself. When a task is updated by someone who isn’t the task’s owner (another group member with permission), the owner is notified that it has been modified. If you assign a task to someone, you will receive an e-mail notification when it has been completed (unless you are the one who marks it complete).
Theme SupportChoose from the suppiled color themes or create your own with custom colors and your own logo.
iCalendars and RSS feeds for each taskView upcoming dates for a specfic project or use RSS to keep track the project’s progress.

They can edit the task and update it’s progress, and you can monitor its status. Comment fields and notes can also be used for workers and supervisors to stay in touch with what’s happening.
Familiar browser based interfaceIf you can use a web browser, you can use Tasks Pro™. Many people even make it their home page so their to-do list is always in front of them.
