Tracks helps you dominate your todo list with an elegant implementation of the "Getting Things Done" methodology.
If you find yourself overwhelmed by tasks that are either slipping through the cracks or being procrastinated, learn the GTD system and stick with it using Tracks.
Desktop-based GTD implementations are traditionally preferred for their responsiveness but Tracks is different. It's a web-based application that uses an AJAX interface to deliver the responsiveness of a desktop app while offering the power of a web app.
Access your todo list from anywhere: your work computer, a public terminal or even your mobile phone. And because it's a JumpBox you can begin by hosting it from your desktop and move it to a dedicated server once you need ubiquitous access.
Tracks supports multiple users. Set up a single, centrally-hosted instance and get your entire office staff on the GTD system.
Tagging combined with granular syndication capabilities make it possible to monitor individual tasks by user, project, tag or context. With an active development community behind it this project is evolving rapidly and incorporating more powerful features each month.
JumpBox simplifies your server software deployments with pre-built, pre-configured virtual applications that deploy in minutes.
A JumpBox packages an application's software, dependencies, and application data into a single virtual application that deploys locally, or hosted to major computing, virtualization, and cloud computing platforms.
Swiftly deploy on Windows, Mac, and Linux systems to virtualization platforms like VMware, Xen, Parallels, Virtual Iron, Microsoft Virtualization, and Amazon EC2.
