    Im looking for a website / app that I can use to help me keep track of things like project, tasks, ideas, notes, dates. I have quite a few projects going on and I've always struggled to remember things so Im looking for something that can help me with this kind of stuff.

    I dont need it for work as Outlook does the trick for my desk job, Im looking for something thats on the web so I can access when Im online. I mainly need it to organise myself so I can kep track of things and remember things related to different projects.

    Any sugestions would be great, cheers. Si :biggrin

    I use evernote that way. Its a cloud based scrap book I suppose is the best description but has apps on all the major platforms, it allows you to create a work book per project and then allows enteries can be tagged with what ever you want, they can be added from the website or from dedicated desktop or mobile clients or for when you are on the move you can email the notes to evernote and it will put them in the workbook for you.

    Absoultuly priceless IMO and bargin at free for < 2gb traffic.

    Big fan of Dropbox...

    Handy too as you can share files with selected others if you are working on a team.

    Well, if you don't want to be linked to any single physical device (i.e. you want access to everything, even from computers which are not yours), then maybe some cloud service offerings may be your thing? Of course, if you want to have programs of your own on your own laptop, then suggestions from above seem great.

    But if you're interested, every Live account with Hotmail does have capabilities to have contacts, there's a calendar as well, you get 25GB of disk space in the cloud if you need to store some stuff accessible from other computers, and you also get access to some Office applications if you need to write a document or fill in some excel sheets for personal accounting/projects/dates/tasks. You can also grant permissions to the office documents so that other Live users can view or edit them (even at the same time as you), which might be nice for those situations where you need to collaborate (or just provide download links for colleagues/friends).

    Google Calendar and you add it into your Outlook at work so can access it anywhere.

    Sorry I'm a little late, I was going to suggest what csx said, I use google calendar, when I can actually remember to update it. Which defeats the whole point of me using it :p
