The hallmark of ActionComplete GTD Toolkit is its streamlined yet flexible and sophisticated task management approach that enables people of all walks of life to take a firm grip on their tasks, assignments, errands, and to-dos and put a stop to leaks through the cracks.

ActionComplete GTD Toolkit is designed to stay close to the vision of the Getting Things Done book by David Allen. ActionComplete does not claim to be a "full implementation" of GTD. Rather, it takes its key elements and leverages them in an efficient and easy to use way.

Old (Paid) ActionComplete for Android End of Life Announcement

Last year we reimagined ActionComplete for Android. We started from the blank screen and rebuilt the app based on 4+ years of our Android experience and your feedback. The result of this substantial effort is the beautiful and free ActionComplete 3 for Android.

The decision came at a cost. We could not keep the app backwards-compatible and we had to increase the minimum supported Android version to 4.0.3. That's how the old (paid) version of ActionComplete for Android bit the dust.

What does it mean to you?

If you don't own the paid version of ActionComplete for Android, you can stop here. Otherwise, please read on.

First and foremost, you paid for the app and it's yours to keep. Bear in mind though that it's no longer available on the Play Store so if you delete it or get a new Android device there won't be a way to get it back.

While you keep the app on your device it'll work in standalone mode indefinitely. The sync between the old (paid) version of ActionComplete for Android and AC for Web will cease working after June 30, 2014.

If you use the sync with AC for Web, your device runs Android version lower than 4.0.3, is not ugradeable, and you do not plan to get a new Android device any time soon, please consider alternative task management solutions.

If you plan to continue using ActionComplete in the long term, we recommend that you migrate to the new free ActionComplete 3 for Android.

We also remind you that as an owner of the terminated paid version of ActionComplete for Android you can get up to $4.99 credit toward the purchase of AC for Web one-year access license. To get the credit in the amount of your purchase, please email your AC for Android purchase receipt to support@actioncomplete.com*.

* The credit can be applied to a new purchase only.


Recurring and Mailed-in Tasks in AC for Web: Please Set Your Time Zone

The way ActionComplete for Web calculates due dates for recurring tasks and the tasks created via email interface has just changed.

AC for Web used to rely on a heuristics approach to derive due dates for recurring tasks. While taking the burden off the user, this approach proved to be unreliable in certain situations.

We redesigned the way due dates are calculated for recurring and mailed-in tasks so that they are generated in a predictable and reliable manner. To make it happen we introduced two additional options - Time Zone and Enable DST - that allow you to specify what time zone you currently are in and whether the daylight saving time is in effect. With the new design the correctness of the due dates for recurring and mailed-in tasks depends on your setting these two options properly.

If you use recurring tasks or email interface, please take a moment to set your time zone and DST option under Tools/Options...

Happy Holidays from ActionComplete!


ActionComplete 3 for Android Raises the Bar for GTD-based Personal Productivity Applications

ActionComplete LLC announces the release of the third generation ActionComplete GTD Toolkit for Android. The app was built from the ground up to embrace the modern design and rich functionality of the fast-paced Android platform. Our in-house engineering team paid attention to every little detail to ensure the utmost stability and top performance of the app.

About ActionComplete 3 for Android

The centerpiece of ActionComplete 3 for Android is the All Tasks view. It's the best view for planning and analysis. From there, a user can slice and dice their task realm with filters, get the best view of the tasks with a number of sort options, search for tasks, and add tasks.

Stepping back from All Tasks view (with Android Back button) reveals the Home screen containing a number of useful options that include several convenience tasks lists.

Important Tasks list shows only the most important tasks (task importance set to Critical), Urgent Tasks list shows past due and due today tasks only, Reminders list shows tasks with reminders in the past.

A user can browse their tasks via the Tags and Places screens. As these views always display completed tasks, they are convenient for taking a historical look at a slice of the user's task realm.

The most efficient way of adding and completing tasks in ActionComplete is via app widgets. Add Task widget enables one-touch access to New Task screen, while Important Tasks, Urgent Tasks, and Reminders widgets facilitate task completion.

To let more users enter its simple and powerful task management universe, ActionComplete GTD Toolkit for Android has shed its price tag and can now be installed free of charge.

The owners of the old paid version of ActionComplete GTD Toolkit for Android can get a credit toward a purchase of ActionComplete for Web one-year access license in the amount of their original ActionComplete for Android purchase price.

To claim the credit an owner of the now obsolete paid version of ActionComplete for Android needs to email their purchase receipt to ActionComplete support.

ActionComplete 4.1 is out with 2 minor enhancements and a few bug fixes.

The calendar view now supports Day mode.

There's a new option - Reset Weight on Type Change - that tells ActionComplete what to do with a task weight when the task is converted to another type (Action -> Project, Idea -> Wait, etc).

ActionComplete GTD Toolkit is Available on the App Store, Helps Users Get Things Done on the Go

ActionComplete LLC announces the immediate availability of a new product - ActionComplete GTD Toolkit for iPhone. ActionComplete GTD Toolkit is available on the App Store.

ActionComplete GTD Toolkit for iPhone brings what users come to expect from a great iPhone application. It’s fast, robust, and intuitive.

ActionComplete in-house development team carefully considered the capabilities of the most advanced Apple mobile platform (iOS 6) and skillfully leveraged them to deliver an intuitive and responsive user experience designed to minimize the time spent on task management and allow the user to focus on actually getting things done.

About the Concepts Used in ActionComplete GTD Toolkit

ActionComplete is based on David Allen’s Getting Things Done methodology. At the core of ActionComplete is management of four types of tasks: Actions (next actions in GTD parlance), Waits (Waiting for), Projects, and Ideas (Someday/Maybe).

The tasks can be assigned two types of metadata: tags and places. A user can easily apply a filter on either or both.

ActionComplete uses weight as a measure of task priority/importance and due date as a measure of task urgency. A user can filter and sort the tasks on both attributes.

A user can set a reminder for a task to get a visual and/or audible notification at the set date and time.

Users who like an even more structured task management approach can leverage projects and assign actions and waits to them.

A user can quickly view the most important tasks, the urgent tasks, and the tasks with past reminders. Alternatively they can drill through their tasks via Tags or Places.
