Task Coach - Your friendly task manager. Task Coach is a free open source todo manager. It grew out of frustration about other programs not handling composite tasks well. In addition to flexible composite tasks, Task Coach has grown to include prerequisites, prioritizing, effort tracking, category tags, budgets, notes, and many other features. However, users are not forced to use all these features; Task Coach can be as simple or complex as you need it to be. Task Coach is available for Windows, Mac OS X, and GNU/Linux; and there is a companion iOS app.
- Hierarchical tasks

- Hierarchical categories
- Time tracking

- Available for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad
It has several useful features (I specially liked precedents, dependents and tracking task time which is something most to-do lists lack) and it's fairly simple to use. The only thing I didn't like, and which for me was the deal breaker was the way categories and task grouping work.
Pretty difficult to use. - Have to go through a complicated menu structure and click many times to just assign a category - Manual ordering is virtually impossible (cannot easily drag&drop, have to turn on some "Manual ordering" column, which is a great pain to use). - Very sparse documentation and poor feedback on forums
This is great. That's what i was looking for, a programme that can track my working time/spending time on a project. And Grouping-categorized them. But this one has much more than what i want :)
Excellent and reliable task logger. I use perhaps a third of this program's features and it more than satisfies my needs. Taskcoach has been totally reliable in the several years that I have used it; I've never lost important data. I am completely satisfied with it.
Very useful software. I'm not an IT professional and I can easly use it to track my task times.
