In the default state, this dynamic window displays the ‘Today’ section from where you can get to know about all the upcoming tasks and meetings in a clear manner.

Main Modules of EssentialPIM
The calendar can be displayed under 4 different modes on the basis of day, week, month and year. All the events scheduled under this period can be displayed according to the selected mode. Events belonging to a particular day are displayed in 30-minute increments on an hour scale. The job labels are resized dynamically for fitting the duration. Users can thus reschedule multiple events for the same time with some starting before the main one. There are two additional display modes in the Calendar, namely Week Agenda and table. Under the Table mode, a list of scheduled tasks is revealed along with fields like start and end time, duration and part description. The Week Agenda divides the entire week into a grid of days with tasks scheduled for each day. The hour scale is not displayed here like the usual week but it carries more information pertaining to each task in a compact manner. As a feature, Calendar comes closely integrated with Notes and Tasks which allows usage of the same in making both personal and professional plans. This unique symbiosis helps with quick time management by accounting for the description of both current and future tasks.
- Task Management
You can opt for the Tasks module to schedule appointments, create tasks and even initialize regular to-do lists. It also becomes possible to schedule their execution on the basis of priority. A special editor helps with the creation and editing of tasks. Users can even proceed with custom text description in the form of both colour and underline highlights, bullet list, numbered lists and hyperlink. The Task module can be viewed as a Tree, Plain and Consolidated list but all of them differ in terms of display of descriptions and principles of record grouping. On creation of any task, the same can be associated with a date, file attachment, password and email.
Third in our list comes Notes which is equipped with a fully functional text editor helping in personal notes management. The editor comprises the main part of the work area and a list of already created notes are displayed in a hierarchical tree-like structure at the left side of the window. Users can both create and edit notes by taking their pick amongst the 150+ different fonts in the text editor.
Contacts allows structuring of data as per user preference just like the other modules. You can divide contacts into groups and even multi-level the same.
