Laura Garcia says: “The single greatest thing about [Chandler]…”

May 19th, 2008 by Mimi Yin

User Laura Garcia recently wrote into the Chandler-Users List with the following (bolding and large-type, mine):

…Though I’ve had little time to compose a proper intro email, I do want to say that I think Chandler is GREAT. I’m an original user of Lotus Agenda, and someone who cursed the decision to discontinue it many years ago when I worked for a medium sized company where everyone in management used it religiously. We kept it going as long as we could, years after it was discontinued, even into Windows desktop environments, so that’s how much everyone loved it. I’ve been on the lookout for a similar tool ever since. I’ve used Lotus Notes, Lotus Organizer, MS Outlook with Exchange, Mindjet, the Brain, and numerous others. I usually give each tool a good couple of months before I give up on it and some I’ve used for years. I have an incredibly busy job and life with a million things to attend to and really need to stay organized.

Two years ago I read Getting Things Done and started adopting that methodology into organizing my life. I got wind of Chandler development and downloaded very early versions which were way too early and caused my desktop to crash regularly. I came back around again this winter after about 18 months of using Mindjet MindManager (also a very good product especially when used in conjunction with Gyronix ResultsManager), but cha-ching – buying both is out of the reach of the average user. Also, though it helped me because I tend to be very visually oriented, it was too difficult to get quick “at a glance” results, and ultimately a bit too complicated overall. Also there was no option for any sort of web interface, which I think in this day and age is essential.

So, I decided to give Chandler another try.

(Now here is where, in the words of another user, Laura “pinpoints Chandler’s core value proposition.”)

“The single greatest thing about [Chandler] is the core idea of the confluence of tasks, emails, and appointments as simple items which can interact and be managed with one other. It is SO TRUE that separating these items into hard categories with totally different interfaces makes organization more, not less, difficult. Allowing them to be listed and managed together is a huge leap forward. It has definitely already added value to my life.”

So thanks to everyone working hard on this project – your efforts are paying off! You have built something extremely useful and I look forward to hanging around to see where it goes. I will try to compose an email in the near future with some specific thoughts/ideas/suggestions about the product which I hope you might find useful. In the meantime I will continue to use it in my daily life and be grateful to all you hard working folks.

    i agree that the ability to melt tasks, email and appointments from one to another is a great feature of chandler.

  2. angel ferrer Says:

    i have just started, just taking the intro tour, not used chandler itself yet.

    i am full of hope, since i hvae been stumbling along trying to find out how to keep our family (80+ cousins) in touch with one another and planning a series of family get togethers.

    separate email and calendars and photo sharing sites have proved to not be enough.

    we will keep you posted.
