I would like to find a feature-rich to-do and reminder software which has the following features:
* a way to display all forthcoming tasks at specific period, preferably the ability to sort based on urgency, category etc.
* a task which I can set multiple reminders (e.g. remind me before 1 month at 6:00pm, before 10 days at 12:00pm, on that day at 1:15pm etc.)
* a re-occurring task/event with advanced pattern (e.g. at different specific dates, or every 3rd, 11th, 25th day of Jan, Mar, May), preferably set when the pattern starts/expires

I have tried several software but they lack some of the features I want. Does anyone know any software which has those features? Shareware is fine.

 

Thank you very much. :)

Do you use it personally? Is it good?

 

Does it have the features that I want?
Could I store the tasks/data locally, or must it store in their server?

 

Thank you.

Yes I use it personally and really like it. However, you will need to test it out to see if it meets your needs. There are so many different ones out there to try depending on your needs. I am not sure about storing the files locally. The great thing about them being stored on there servers is that it is synced and available on all your devices.

I see. Thanks a lot.

Outlook is kind of an overkill since it is not just for to-do lists/reminders, but might settle on it if I couldn't find a better alternative.

Thank you again for your help.

Yes, it is. W-a-y more than a simple to-do app. It is powerful though.
